We purchased a 72 hour ticket which includes a walking tour and cruise in the Danube which was very good. The one problem we had was trying to find the bus stops

Bus did not look like the one on the picture. It was a bit old and dirty. Italian guide is good. Many delays. A bit of a disappointment. Did the 2-day tour, could have walked around the city instead .

We visited Budapest a week ago
Beautiful place and nice people
Sorry for this review but is honest
We decided to book this bus because of the guy in point 13 give us the *perfect* information
Sale information ….
I think they don’t care about us
The only think is …. get the money and then help is gone
He told us that any point we can ask colleges and we get help
BIG LIE
At point 4 (Astoria ) we need help about some information
Not big information just about if this line was going to the Castles and the guy told us
You have ticked right?????
We say… Yes we have
Then he ignored us and he was try to sale tickets around
We ask him again . Please can you give some information and he was so rude with us soo rude
Just told us to get the f…..
You have ticked right
Get the f……now
Be careful when you get the ticked ask about all information because later you will not get any
They only care about sale
Not about service

Stop 4 at Astoria hotel
Can’t understand this company can have employees like him so rude
We complained on the bus about what happened
For the rest all was ok

I had booked the big bus tour in Budapest, I am very disappointed with the service. I wanted to see the sights and it was impossible to see through the scratched up plastic purse pec window, unless your lucky to sit right at the front (which most of us wasn’t) it was useless to see anything.

I am not happy with the service, customer service did not help at all instead made up excuses! No refund was offered or given! description online is not an honest one. It’s sad to be disappointed on a tour of a city you come to visit, so people should be made aware of this, don’t waste £45 on tickets to see nothing because that’s what you’ll see, NOTHING!!

Terrible service !!! Firstly we could not board the bus with our tickets bought online. Had to go to the ticket office on the other side of the city to get printed tickets. Also, the real-time service showing where the buses are was out-of-service, making it impossible to plan the next leg. We didn’t even get headphones on the bus ! Utterly ridiculous. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY !

It was a great tour, we had a very good opportunity to get off at all the main sights in Budapest. Usually when we go sightseeing we usually choose the bus option because it is great to travel around the city with it.

Every city break we take we try to make sure the hotel is near a big bus tour stop. We bought the 72 hour hop on hop off ticket with the boat tour included.

Our experience of this bus company was mixed due to there being a lack of accurate information. We bought our ticket from our hotel which was the first mistake, we didn't have anyone explain the bus times etc and they are different to the timetable/map you are given so was confusing. The busses were regular and we didn't have to wait too long, we only found out on our third and final day that the tickets were accepted on the red busses, the green busses and the Buda busses - if only we had known from the start!!!!! You have to change busses at stop 1.

These busses were a godsend as the chain bridge is currently closed, we were staying on the Buda side, most of the action is on the Pest side so needed to get over there, which was a long walk due to the bridge being closed - we used the Bus and got to see practically all the sights we wanted to see.

The buses were surprisingly busy. When the top wasn't open a lot of people wore masks which was good of them.

The boat trip along the Danube was good - the ticket says unlimited but you only really need to use it once, it stops at Margaret Island where you can get off but it is long wait until the next boat. The boat stop is at pier 6 - this wasn't very easy to find so when you buy your ticket, ask for a good explanation of how to get there.

It certainly makes the trip to Budapest easier to navigate the sights.

We bought tickets online on October 4th. The map attached to the website informed us where the nearest bus stop is. We came there (stop #4) and, sure enough there was a sign with bus stop #4. WE hade been waiting for an hour but bust did not come. Phone that was on the sign did not answer. Finally we found another phone number and nice woman informed us that this stop is not in service for a long time. We took a taxi (6000 HUF) to come to another spot and finally got to the bus. What a disaster! Narration was bad with poor information. It was not in sync with the bus movement so we were never sure what the narrator was telling. In addition nobody informed passengers where to disembark to get to the boat for the river part of the tour (which was paid). We had been in many world capitals but never experienced such terrible, poorly managed service.

A bit crowded, even in the off season, so I don't dare to imagine what it must be like in the peak of the high seas
