Good value for your money, a lot of activities in the deluxe pack (night cruise of the Danube, walking tour, night bus toor, visit to castle and fisherman’s bastion all included), well organized, brilliant bus route that went around all the important sites and smart application that gave you real time bus position so you didn’t have to guess.However if you missed the bus you had to wait 10-15 minutes in the cold until the next one arrived so if buses would pass by more frequently it would be great.Also a couple of buses had this plastic roof that made it impossibly to look outside as it was blurry and finally not enough staff to get info.

Great way to see the city since the attractions are quite spread out. Nice loop around the city with an informative audio. Jumping off and on at places of greater interest was nice to do. Would have liked the buses to have continued a bit later, especially with a young adults whose idea of early is noon! :-)

wycieczka busem trasą była bardzo fajna ale wycieczki niebieską trasą do Cytadeli nie polecam ( na trasie jeździ tylko jeden bus i trzeba czekać dłużej niż jest to reklamowane na ulotkach). Wycieczka upływa w miłej oprawie muzycznej. Polecam bilet 48-72h bo w tedy można serio pozwiedzać to co się chce w dobrym tempie bez stresu.
