Full description

Explore Budapest by land and water without the need to change vehicles on this floating bus tour. See the best sights of the city from a comfortable bus seat, first along its busy streets, and then from the water of the Danube.

Roar with joy as your bus takes a dive in the Danube, the iconic river of Budapest. Admire the views of the elegant city while being gently rocked on the rippling waves. After the watery adventure, get ready to soak in the sights from the deck of a luxury coach. Climb back onto the river shore and find yourself once again in the hustle and bustle of the busy metropolis.

Instead of choosing between touring the Hungarian capital on 4 wheels or marveling at the imperial buildings from the deck of a pleasure boat, enjoy the best of both worlds.

Equipped with an audio guide that activates near the attractions, this tour of the city was basic, but right. Entering the water with this vehicle was superb! After a while of sailing, of course, the excitement of entering the water with the bus disappears. Overall I would recommend it because it is an experience that can only be done here or in Berlin, and it will certainly remain a good memory. Improved

The idea of taking a tour bus across the river is crazy enough in itself and certainly good for a holiday story. If you really want to see the city you might want to opt for a panoramic bus tour, the dark tinted windows at the top make it a bit difficult to see much for those who aren't window seated. The descriptions in the headphones are multilingual, but not always at the right time because they are GPS-based.
