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?

Good experience
Mar 2020
We bought out ticket at our hotel for 9800 florints which was a 48 hour pass and incuded boat trips and a walking tour. So much better seeing the sights sat on a warm bus in march. The app was brilliant and we could see exactly where the busses were so that we weren't hanging around waiting.

Best way to see alot
Jan 2020
Great to get a lot of information on the city as you get headsets. As it suggests you can hop off and look around places of interest then catch another one as they are very regular(15 mins I think) once you have finished your ticket is still valid for the time you bought for example 1 day so you can still use it as a taxi

30 minute stop
Mar 2020 • Couples
We rode the same route twice. Both times we stopped at Heroes square for 30 minutes. The second time we were required to change buses. This was completely unnecessary and a waste of tourist time.

Dear Pdalton, Thank you for taking time to share your thoughts,we do apologise for the inconvenience. Heroes Sq is where the tour end and start, that is the only location where we have to change the buses, with that comes a waiting time of 20 mins at this period of the year. Regards, David

my experience with Big Bus
Feb 2020
First of all, I must thank the operator by the name Norbert.
He was super professional, since I forgot my credit card at the Heroes square sales point. He found me and returned the card, and gave me a lot of useful tips about the citygoing.

The city is big and spread, and there's no way you can do the sightseeing by walking, and in using the public transportation there's an insurmountable barrier in lacking the signs in any language except Hungarian.

The voiced guide in the buses- headphones included in service (on all channels I checked it was the same) is lacking in infos of any kind, at least by my standard. Too much general info, some even not entirely true, and a lot of voids filled with loud, sometimes annoying music.

But then You have guys like Norbert, who make for it with great effort and zeal.

That's why I give a vote of four instead of three.

Many, many thanks my man
