    Buses came well and frequently, stops well marked. The top of the bus was open which limited seating because it was too cold upstairs. At the top, the roof is broken and your front is in front of you. The whole tour was exhausting as it included 2 stops for 15min. The last round left too early. Overall, however, very good!

    Bought a 2 day pass and found it great value for money. Walking tour very informative and the evening boat tour was magical, but get dressed according to the weather. We used the bus tour on 3 days as the ticket is for 24hours and as wedidnt buy it until lunch time we were able to use it again on our final day in Budapest. Great value and lovelly helpful staff

    At each stop there were some and could answer every question you had. Was very well organized. It was a lot of fun to sit on the bus to listen to everything. If you are only on the road for a few days, this is the best idea to see a lot. Highly recommended!
