    We enjoyed it very much! Nice, long and slow ride for 1400ft (both ways price). Birds singing, trees around and the best view you can get after climbing 100 steps.

    This funicular railroad is a little gem. It saved us the exhaustion of walking up to the palace on a hot spring day. The views from it as you ride up the hill is worth the price you pay - which isn’t much. I highly recommend it. It’s a fun little ride.

    As a tourist in Budapest I was chock at my Metro experience. My wife and I couldn't find the ticket machine and no staff available around. a homeless man help us how to get our ticket (with a tip) and we went down to the metro. No translation what so ever else than Hungarian. We were stop for control by 5 persons who told us that they will fine us for not validated our ticket. We explain that we did not know about it and we ask what to do? They want to charge us CA$ 28.00 per pers for fraud, we ask to talk to the police and of course an under cover official showed up. They want our passport and money right away. We keep showing them that we bought 2 tickets a minute ago and did not know about a machine somewhere to be use before going down. If you have 5 official down the line to check your ticket why can they have only one upstairs to help peoples like us what to do. What about a little help for tourist? a ca$1.00 ticket do you really think we will reap off the Metro? So if you want tourist in your country try to be more friendly and help them. Did a mention that the police guy start to accuse me of pushing him? Sad experience

    A cheap way to get up and down the river as some of the ferry lines are included in the all inclusive public transport tickets (weekdays only). The ferries offer great views from the river and have a little cafe onboard and (terribly smelly) free public toilets. The lower deck is completely closed in and the upper deck is open with some covered areas. The ferry stops are generally easily accessed from the tram and metro lines.

    Stopped at the ticket booth at Budapest airport & explained where we needed to get to. We were sold 2 single tickets for each part of the journey when what we really needed was a transfer ticket. Although these tickets were valid, it worked out an expensive way to get from the airport to city centre. Staff were helpful but very busy.

    This was a fantastic way to start a short stay in Budapest. Tamas has an amazing knowledge of the best places to visit in the City, and also acts as a concierge throughout the whole stay, making bookings at an excellent restaurant on the first night. The transfer to and from the airport went without any problems in a very comfortable car. I would strongly recommend using this service which in my opinion is excellent value for money

    Mary’s transfer is the best. She’s welcoming, friendly and knowledgable,
    She recommended restaurants, Ruin Bars and wine/champagne which the girls fell in love with, so ordered all the time.
    We’ll be recommending her to everyone we know who go to Budapest

    I booked the shuttle from the USA before arriving in Budapest and it proved to be a good, reliable way to get from the airport to my hotel. At 25 Euros I thought it was a fair price for the personalized service.

    Very good airport transfer to hotel by the river. Driver was at the airport on time having messaged me after landing. Return paid for and again, excellent pick up on time.
    Zoli the driver was full of local knowledge and good suggestions for places to visit and to eat.

    We travelled to the railway from the centre of the city (a simple tram journey away). From the tram stop, the walk to the railway station was only 5 minutes. On the railway, we enjoyed everything - the novelty, the scenery and the fabulous journey. We got off at the Normafa stop, walking up to János-hegy/Erzsébet-kilátó and Átjáró-barlang. We had planned to get the chairlift down from Jànos-hegy, but it was closed for maintenance, so we walked down to the Jànos-hegy stop.

    This was - without a doubt - one of our favourite days out in Budapest. The history of the railway and the beautiful scenery, as well as the well mapped-out and maintained walking areas, all made for a delightful day. If you’re going to Budapest - this is a must for any tourist. If you’re lucky, hopefully, you can pick up some làngos on the walk as well 😋

    To use this airport transfer was a great idea. The driver was courteous and helpful, the van was nice and very comfortable. It took all the stress out of getting from the airport to our hotel. It was a great start to our holiday in Budapest. We will use it again on our next journey to Budapest.
