Just don't!
Sep 2021
I have taken a Big Bus tour in London, Paris and Rome and was always so pleased. Not in Budapest! Had to wait 45 minutes to catch our first ride. No markings anywhere to tell where the bus was going to stop. So we saw it across the street and had to sprint to get on. Waiting became the key word of the day. We had to wait at an HOUR in Hero's Park, again, no signs or markings. Several tourists from around the world all banded together trying to figure out where the bus would stop. As it was very hard to hear where we were stopping, I specifically asked for the Opera House stop. And, I was told when we arrived. But, it would have been really nice if they had mentioned that it was CLOSED... draped with a covering which we didn't notice until the bus drove off. It had been closed for over a year so surely the bus people knew this. So we waited and waited and waited for another bus. We wasted SO much time. I would also suggest that they ring a bell or make the stops better known. When you are on the top, its hard to tell if you are stopped for traffic or suppose to get off. We had one full day in Budapest and feel like we spent too much time waiting on a bus and not enough enjoying the sights.

Do not buy ticket on website. You will need to enter your private information, then go the the city center office, pick up your ticket, only then you will be able to go in buses.... that are not great at all.
The audio comments is no interest.

Hop on-hop off
When you have very little time to see a city, the best choice for you is this hop-on hop off bus. There are several different companies in Budapest that we got from shop.It has very good routes, they are almost regular. You can also use the boat and the night route.

We like the idea of the hop on and off to look around the cities we are travelling around the world but in Budapest it is a bit anoying that there are to much of road closure around the city.

It was helpful to use the red bus, after trying to figure out which bus to choose, it ended up that both Big Bus and City Sightseeing are the same and you ride both buses with same ticket, although each bus seems to belong to a different company.
The stations have no signs to tell you where to wait, you have to figure it out which is not easy for a tourist, by asking the locals whom might not have answers... In other cities Ive seen clear signs on bus stops to inform about the Red Bus, also in Budapest they do not have their own guides standing at each stop, you can imagine how easy to not find a station, and how few information you can get. Also the bus stations are not searchable on google maps.
The information on headphones was very limited, the can say much more, or be more clear, many times the mentioned a site or building which I couldnt figure out which building they talk about, the experience can be better if they give clear description.
I hope they consider all this in future to make the ride more efficient.
Otherwise, stations are located in most important sights and using the bus you will be seeing most of attractions in city
Frequency was about each 20-30 minutes....

Bussing through Budapest
Jan 2020
Big Bus Budapest - what shall I say ... If you used before Big Bus you know what it is all about, if you didn't well, here are a few thoughts:
- stations are several in the city - and you can get your ticket online or from the driver - and they take credit card so you don't have to worry about carrying cash.
- price/service ratio I consider it appropriate and the bus is covering the majority of the sights of Budapest.
- buses are clean - that was a nice plus .
- due to being in January we were lucky that the weather allowed us to sit on the upper deck - but with a cover ... so not like in the summer, but still enjoyable.
- good sound system - and a big variety of languages for the tours.
- we started the tour at the heroes square and we also ended it there ... very good experience.
- use their app, is very good, you can see the buses so you can know exactly when and where you need to be.
- the buses have free Wi-Fi and is a very good connection.
- the ticket we took is valid for all lines - so we switched at the Chain bridge and get the one to the Citadel... very nice.
Overall a very good experience I recommend you try it, it is worth it from my perspective.

Deluxe Ticket worked for us...great value
Sep 2019
Depends how long you are in the city for but we bought the Deluxe ticket and it worked a treat and was great value too (36 euros - 3days)

in this price you got...

1. Night tour (1hr & different perspective of city).
2. River cruise 1.5hr?
3. Buda Castle return suttle (we only used one way)
4. Hop on & off for 3 days
5. Free wifi (good)
6. Walking tour (we didn't get a chance to use this one)

fantastic way to see the city. It was busy when we were there in sept but plenty of buses available and they cover all the key city centre stops/highlights.

The soundtrack - please help
Mar 2020 • Solo
The bus journey was great! I enjoyed it thoroughly! However, there was a song playing in between commentary that sounded like a live performance, mostly male singers and it ended with an audience clapping. I’m pretty sure it was in Hungarian so I couldnt pick up any of the lyrics but it was so relaxing I loved it! Please do you have the current 2020 soundtrack or tracklist?
