I recommend it 100%. Although we had some setbacks: - The entrance to La Noria is NOT included, only for the option with champagne, not even a discount. - The entrance to the chocolate museum is NOT included. They give you a gift. - They must specify where the meeting point is for the walking tours of Buda and Pest because they are from the CITY RAMA Agency.

Very useful card, provided you have properly planned your Budapest tour! I bought it for the last day of our trip, which included Buda side (Historical Museum, Art Gallery, Castle, St. Matthew's Temple, Fisherman's Bastion). Although it exclusively includes the public Museums of the city (& in some cases not all Museum wings), it is ultimately useful in combination with public transport (city buses, trams, metro), because you save a lot of time & comfort. To get it, you must first visit Budapestinfo points (we went to the one in Városháza park) & show your digital voucher. Then you receive the card with the filling instructions: you have to sign it & note the exact time you start using it. Its effect starts with its 1st use & lasts 24 hours. It can also be used & to return to the airport, as follows: first you take the city bus M3 which currently replaces the metro. Then you use the metro to the terminal station Kispest & finally the city bus to the Airport. The route is very easy!

Easy to use: it allows you to take public transport without worrying about buying tickets. It allows you to have discounts on many museums and activities. I took the hop on hop bus and a cruise on the Danube at -25 and -20% thanks to the card. It is not expensive and is worth it because it makes your stay easier!
