Hello, We are a family of four x2 adults with 2x kids that bought the 72 hrs deal for 168€. Upon collecting it from their retail shop in budapest, we start using the busses and the bus drivers where telling us this is not valid. Poor words, WASTS OF MONEY. Nobody came to check our cards/tickets and everyone is using the transport for free. We tried also using the rides and entrances to several museums and Zoos and I.csn assure you, the discount you get would be better off without the cards rather than having them. At a final point, when asking info at their outlets, they barley understand English and when asking them twice the same question, they get angry with you and they simply push you off with words to get the fk** out of their. So any family out there going for a quick trip to Budapest, don't buy anything, not worth it. Waste of money. If you don't want to risk going up without tickets, buy the daily 10x tickets that should be enough. NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL!

This ticket is worth every penny. You can see so many things for free and buy many tickets with discount. It works perfectly. You even get a map where you can follow all your activities. The boat trip is beautiful experience. You can use public transport which really means a lot. I would definitely buy it again. I really enjoyed this city!

I bought the 96-hour Budapest Card, in general it was very useful, especially for transport (bus to/from airport - 100e - not included and MiniBud shuttle 10% discount); however, it should be emphasized that it does not include all the attractions that are listed: for example, the Casa Del Terror Museum was not included even if it was mentioned several times in the list of attractions. In any case, be careful because some attractions are only included with the yellow Budapest Card, the 72Plus one. More clarity would have been welcome
