    Overall positive impressions. Nice option with free public transport (metro, buses, trams, trolley buses). However, please note that the airport shuttle bus 100E is not included in the price! Unfortunately, some of the venues with free entry are under renovation or are open on selected days. Please check availability before planning your trip.

    Nous avons pris avec une amis la carte Dubapest 96h, et elle nous a été une grande d'aide. Nous avions accès à tous les transports gratuitement, des entrées bains et musées gratuite et pas mal de réduction notamment sur la croisière du Danude (BTW : la croisière d'une heure est bien sympathique).

    Very, very convenient and easy way to use all the public transportation you want, especially the trams running up and down the Danube. Lots of good museums and activities, too. Be careful if you book baths on line, for example. There was no way to get the 20% off offered by the Budacard when we booked the Gellert Baths on-line. And the funincular (supposed to be 100% off) is no longer part of the program.
