why you should get on board

Everybody always seems to be in such a hurry, somehow, there is always so much to see and do. However short or long your trip may be, time is precious, and in order to conserve it all one needs to do is hop on and hop off! Exploring the city on a bus means connecting you to different routes, making it easier to jump from one attraction to another. Doubled with convenience and budget, you can make the most of your time with a simple bus tour.

Budapest has a Bohemian soul and carries about itself the air of melancholia, showcasing a wealth of UNESCO World Heritage sites, steamy thermal baths, wide boulevards, and architectural marvels in a variety of styles from the Romans and the Ottomans to the Habsburgs and the Soviets.

Cruise on River Danube With an Upgraded Ticket

Take things to the next level by opting for a cruise along the Danube River which slices through the city, dividing it into Buda and Pest. Pass through many of the iconic landmarks such as the Hungarian Parliament, the seat of the National Assembly of Hungary, and the Széchenyi Chain Bridge that beautifully spans across the river connecting Buda and Pest. A look to your right will include views of the Castle District with the Matthias Church, Fisherman's Bastion, and the former Royal Palace.

You can marvel at the same view and the beauty of the same famous landmarks with a night tour when they are all beautifully lit in the evenings. This gives you all the more reason to experience the cityscape with a ticket upgrade. The city of Budapest at night is an entirely different vibe with a serene feeling under the starry night sky.
