Tour description provided by Viator

Explore the beautiful and historical city of Budapest, much of which is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on a hop-on hop-off tour! Sightsee at your own pace aboard an open-top, double-decker bus, as well as a boat route on the Danube. You can hop on and off as many times as you like at any of the 28 stops to see Budapest’s top attractions, including Heroes’ Square, Margaret Island, Budapest Citadel and Hungarian State Opera House.

Start your hop-on hop-off tour through Budapest at Heroes’ Square, Franz Liszt Square or any of the other 26 stops across all three routes. As the open-top, double-decker bus or boat transports you around town, hop on and off as many times as you like and wherever you like to see the best of Budapest at your own pace.

On the Red and Yellow lines, spend some time in the Buda Castle District, and then check off top city attractions like the Hungarian Parliament Building, the Hungarian State Opera House and UNESCO World Heritage-listed Andrássy Avenue. When you’re ready for a little river action, head to one of the three stops on the Blue Boat Line to cruise down the Danube.
