Budapest’s sights are fairly widely dispersed, so seeing them on foot can be time-consuming. This hop-on hop-off City Sightseeing bus lets you cover them in comfort, with audio commentary to provide background. Hop on or off at any of the stops on two routes when you wish to create your own personal itinerary. Choose from a 24-hour or 48-hour pass, or upgrade to a 48- or 72-hour pass with an included cruise and night tour.
What to Expect
Book your desired option and travel independently to any of the stops along the two routes. Your ticket is valid for your selected duration from when you first board and buses arrive every 15 minutes or so. See the Itinerary for stops.

Settle on the open upper deck or air-conditioned lower deck and don a headset to hear the multilingual audio commentary about the sights. Then, stay aboard to view the landmarks along the full loop, or hop on and off at any of the stops to explore further.

Perhaps alight to peruse the food stalls at Budapest’s Great Market Hall or admire the Parliament's beautiful neo-Gothic architecture. Alternatively, step out to see Heroes Square, view the Szechenyi Baths, stroll on the Margaret Bridge, or delve into other sights.

If you’ve upgraded, enjoy an included daytime or evening Danube River cruise, plus a panoramic city night tour.

Don't bother

The first bus was full and we managed to squeeze onto the second one. After 10 minutes, we were informed that the bus would stop for 20 minutes, so we squeezed onto another. It's not cheap and Budapest is very walkable (I am deeply unfit...More

Might as well get a public bus

Have used this buses before in other cities and never really had a complaint however it was pretty disappointing. Might just be because we went in winter: the bottom of the bus was always too busy so we had to sit upstairs, due to the...More

Red Route to Buda castle

Unfriendly, abrupt bus personnel. Overloading the bus with chock-a-block standing passengers extremely uncomfortable. Does not come close to Hop on Hop off in Austria 👹👹👹 Cannot recommend use in Budapest.
