Traveler Tips

  • "However, it does stop running very early in the evening so chart out your tip before you begin to ensure you are where you need to be at 5PM when the bus stops." See review
  • "It is confusing at the bottom of the hill as to which tour company honors the Big Bus passes, so you have to ask before you get in line." See review
  • "Rather budget on spending separately to take a day or night boat trip (a night-time boat trip is essential in Budapest)." See review

Check the operational...
, Dec 2021
Check the operational hours if you only visit for the short time. The cruise only operates if there are 10 people on board or more.

Walk was the most interesting part. Felt on bus it was a bit too fast and needed more info on stops. Also having paid in advance it is a pest ( no pun) to have to go to an office to pick up ticket when imo it should be capable of being used from mobile or at worst issued at any of the stops

Lucky dip!
, Nov 2021
The first bus we caught had no headphones and was over crowded. The plastic on the upper deck did not help for a good view and we were no better off than taking a walk as we learnt nothing about the surroundings. The second and third buses were better

Good way to see the city
, Aug 2021
Good tour of the city. You need to go the the central location to pickup the ticket. The boat tour is also nice to see the city from another prospective. There is a nice square near the boat landing (no. 6)

Very good. No stress and good restaurants in between. The less is that I have to write too many words here👍🤪
, Mar 2020
A good bus tour with commentary via ear phones. These were supplied. Could do with some more signage about where you pick it up from but the street sellers helped us.

Not the best experience
, Mar 2020
Booked later in the day hoping to catch the second to last bus. It turned up 15 mins late and then only travelled 4 stops, making it a pretty expensive bus ride.

Great way to see Budapest
, Feb 2020
Great way to see this beautiful city. Commentary through headphones tells you which stops to get off at to see attractions.

Dear Sue, Thank you for choosing to explore Budapest with Big Bus Tours. Regards, The Big Bus Team
Good except for the boat tour
, Feb 2020
The hop on hop off was good. Staff were present at most stops and helpful. The bad side was the night cruise is VERY unclear on where to get on and off so after waiting 45 mins we gave up. Even our driver couldn’t understand the brochure. When we did it during the day the next day there was no staff present at the boat fir the company. This was the only part that needs some work

Lay of the land
, Feb 2020
Great to get the lay of the city though not much to see and more pricey than other European cities could combine a boat tour for the cost!

Dear Lizdargan, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, happy to have you on our tour. As for the price, we think it's a fair deal, considering the winter seasons, all our buses are covered with heating to provide the best comfort for our guests during their trip. Regards, The Big Bus Team
