Full description

Explore Budapest by land and water without the need to change vehicles on this floating bus tour. See the best sights of the city from a comfortable bus seat, first along its busy streets, and then from the water of the Danube.

Roar with joy as your bus takes a dive in the Danube, the iconic river of Budapest. Admire the views of the elegant city while being gently rocked on the rippling waves. After the watery adventure, get ready to soak in the sights from the deck of a luxury coach. Climb back onto the river shore and find yourself once again in the hustle and bustle of the busy metropolis.

Instead of choosing between touring the Hungarian capital on 4 wheels or marveling at the imperial buildings from the deck of a pleasure boat, enjoy the best of both worlds.

An alternative and unique experience of its kind! A different way to navigate the Danube and see the cities of Buda and Pest. The audio guide is multilingual (therefore also Italian of course) the explanations are excellent and interesting (even if sometimes the explanation is not always in sync with what you see, but it is a passable defect). Must try at least once as an experience without a doubt!

Great experience, first on land - or asphalt - then suddenly you swim in the Danube with the bus! Very calm shipping, explanations via headphones in many languages, unfortunately the headphones were 'deaf' in one ear. The traffic jam on the way there and back in the streets was the only annoying thing...

Equipped with an audio guide that activates near the attractions, this tour of the city was basic, but right. Entering the water with this vehicle was superb! After a while of sailing, of course, the excitement of entering the water with the bus disappears. Overall I would recommend it because it is an experience that can only be done here or in Berlin, and it will certainly remain a good memory. Improved
