Overview
If your time in Budapest is short, or you just want a simple way to get between sights, this hop-on hop-off bus tour makes a great option. Don’t worry about figuring out the city’s multiple bus, metro, and tram systems—instead, simply hop on and off at multiple stops to view the landmarks. Choose a 24-, 48-, or 72-hour ticket, and upgrade for an added river cruise and night tour.
What to Expect
Board a bus at any of the designated stops to start seeing the sights of Budapest. Your ticket is valid for 72, 48, or 24 hours, depending on the option you booked.

Settle onto the comfortable double-decker bus and enjoy panoramic views along the city-center route, listening to the informative audio commentary along the way.

Stay aboard for the full 1.5-hour loop to see everything in one go, or hop on and off at the many well-placed stops as you please. Stops include Heroes’ Square and the Parliament building, plus St. Stephen’s Basilica, the Chain Bridge, Castle Hill in Buda, and more.

All tickets include walking tours in Buda or Pest. The 48-hour Premium ticket also includes a Danube cruise, and the 3-day Deluxe ticket includes a castle shuttle and panoramic night tour.

Good tour but very poor audio

Overall we enjoyed the Big Bus tour around Budapest, however, we found the audio (English channel) very hard to hear (because of crackling and background interference). We tried a number of different seats but the audio never resolved itself. Please fix for future users.

We bought tickets in their office near Derek Tér. You can pay with credit card and it is cheaper. Tickets are valid 24/48/72h (depending on type of ticket) after you buy them from the office.
