We took the 48 hour hop on hop off city sightseeing bus tour. In euro it was around 27 euro (7000 local currency). It included trips on the red bus, green bus and pink bus. It also included two boat tours. It was interesting to get the commentary so you get to know a lot about Budapest. However the weather... More

I have used many different bus companies in various cities, this was by far the worst ever experience, we were a party of 6 & purchased our tickets from a seller on the street offering this super deal (not). When trying to use buses they were overcrowded, didn't run to time, having to stand or being refused I understand that... More

I booked a private tour to the Royal Palace at Godollo. Our tour guide was Istvan Izso and he was brilliant. A really friendly, informative, helpful and nice man. From the time he met us at our hotel he was thoroughly nice and very interesting. As we drove out to the Royal Palace he told us all sorts of history,... More

We arrived in Budapest late in the afternoon. We left our hotel and took a wrong turn ending up in a dreary part of the city, thinking we should have gone back to Prague! However, the next morning we bought a 48 hour bus ticket from our hotel reception and that totally changed our minds about Budapest. It was a... More

My parents and I took this 48-hour tour which helped us get the perspective of the city. We could hop off at any stop, explore the area and continue by another bus. They go every 30 minutes and we visited in January so we had no problem with crowded buses. As it was off season this green line company joined... More

We thought we would do the sightseeing tour so we could get our bearing in the city. We got on the bus in three separate occasions and the service was terrible each time. Two of the times we were left standing because there weren't enough seats, and didn't get to see anything because we were trying not to fall and... More

I don't normally do reviews but I had to give some feedback regarding this company as the experience was that bad. I bought a 2 day pass with boat trip from my hotel reception, I think it was approx 22 Euro equivalent. The guide on the bus seemed to really resent his job, I never meet a more unhelpful person...

Myself and my 2 friends had a brilliant private tour in a mini bus to ourselves with Program Centrum Tours.

Program Centrum Tours and City Sightseeing have a sharing agreement, so tickets appear to be valid on each other's buses. This does mean that there are other tour providers (for example Big Bus) that do not share tickets and passengers, hence the confusion that some visitors experience. We chose Program Centrum as they had a bus ready to go when... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
