why you should get on board

With routes mapped out in such a way that they pass key places of interest, a hop-on-hop-off bus tour is ideal if you’re looking to burrow your way into Budapest's turbulent heart. Simply hop on and off at any one of the centrally located stops to dig your way in deeper. In addition to being hassle-free, a bus tour will also be light on the pocket, ensuring you gain much more than you spend.

The ticket includes an optional cruise along river Danube as well as a night tour offering a wholly different perspective. Nicknamed the ‘Pearl of Danube,’ the river slices through the city, dividing it into Buda and Pest. Cross over the monumental Chain Bridge to the Buda side and visit the Fisherman’s Bastion which offers breathtaking views over Pest. At night, Budapest takes on an appeal that is a combination of time, theater, and beauty. Witness the sheer size of the aesthetic building of the Hungarian Parliament, take the waters to some of Budapest’s best thermal healing baths, pop into a ruin pub, explore the historic Jewish quarter, try the famous goulash, and more, all with your extensive hop-on-hop-off tour.
