3. Budapest: Hop-on Hop-off Sightseeing Cruise with Drink

The panorama of the city is truly breath-taking and it is even more enchanting, if you happen to see it from a cruising ship on the Danube. Join us on this sightseeing tour and you will have the opportunity to learn about the rich history and culture of Budapest, while enjoying the amazing panorama of both sides. During the day, you can discover a lot more by cruising on the Danube.

The cruise was the highlight of the Hop on Hop off experience. The bus tour hit the major points of interest and allowed us to more easily get to those points. The walking tour got us closer to specific locations like the House of Parliament and the Holocaust memorial. The steady and cold rain during the walking tour really did put a damper on appreciation of the sights. Still, well worth the cost and should be considered by anyone who has never been to Budapest. One negative experience, it rained and while the upper level of the bus was open, the protective cover did not stop the rain from pouring onto the passengers.

It was nice way to look at the city. We also used guided tour, Claudia was more than great. I would love to have all day tour with her in Budapest, very easy going and super interesting!

Γρήγορη καλή εξυπηρέτηση,πολλές ενδιαφέρουσες πληροφορίες και το προσωπικό άψογο. Πολύ καλή εμπειρία.

A great way to see the city. The commentary was really helpful and the bus came every 30 mins.

Every city we visit we use this service and they have never failed to disappoint.
