If your time in Budapest is short, or you just want a simple way to get between sights, this hop-on hop-off bus tour makes a great option. Don’t worry about figuring out the city’s multiple bus, metro, and tram systems—instead, simply hop on and off at multiple stops to view the landmarks. Choose a 1-, 2-, or 3-day ticket or a night tour to explore the city.
  • See Budapest’s sights at your own pace on a hop-on hop-off tour 
  • Create your own sightseeing plan with stops near landmarks 
  • Single bus route simpler than making bus, metro, and tram connections 
  • See highlights such as Heroes’ Square, Chain Bridge, Castle Hill, and more 
  • Hear commentary about the sights along the way 
  • Explore the city during the guided walking tour included in all tickets
What to Expect
Board a bus at any of the designated stops to start seeing the sights of Budapest. Your ticket is valid for one, two, or three days, depending on the option you booked. Settle onto the comfortable double-decker bus and enjoy panoramic views along the city-center route, listening to the informative audio commentary along the way. Stay aboard for the full loop to see everything in one go, or hop on and off at the many well-placed stops as you please. Stops include Heroes’ Square and the Parliament building, plus St. Stephen’s Basilica, the Chain Bridge, Castle Hill in Buda, and more. All tickets include walking tours in Buda or Pest. The 2-day Premium ticket also includes a Danube cruise, and the 3-day Deluxe ticket includes a castle shuttle and panoramic night tour.

Big Bus Budapest - what shall I say ... If you used before Big Bus you know what it is all about, if you didn't well, here are a few thoughts: - stations are several in the city - and you can get your ticket online or from the driver - and they take credit card so you don't

The bus journey was great! I enjoyed it thoroughly! However, there was a song playing in between commentary that sounded like a live performance, mostly male singers and it ended with an audience clapping. I’m pretty sure it was in Hungarian so I couldnt pick up any of the
