Full description
Spend 2 full days exploring Buda and Pest: 2 towns so beautiful, they put them together! Budapest is the “Paris of the East," a magnificent city that presides regally over both sides of the mighty Danube, and you can see it all on this 48-hour hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour.

With this ticket you get access to the city’s 2 sightseeing routes on the lively hop-on and hop-off buses, some of which are open-top. You can use your pass on both the green circuit and the red City Sightseeing route for a full 48 hours.

Access the green route and discover the Opera House, New York Palace, and Castle District. Live guides give commentary in English, while a computerized headset offers information in 25 different languages.

The open-top buses are a perfect way to see the city in the sunshine, and come equipped with straw hats to use. In the event of unexpected rain, the buses will also provide you with raincoats. Meanwhile, closed buses have panoramic windows so you will never miss a sight.

You can hop between the routes as you wish, and take the river cruise according to your own schedule within the 48-hour period. With buses running on 30-minute and 1-hour-long schedules, and cruises between 10:45 AM - 8:45 PM every hour, it really is the perfect ticket.
