An excellent opportunity to see the sites of Budapest. Then visit your choices thereafter. Most helpful staff are at each stop to help you and the audio guide on board help you understand where you are and what you see. Don't forget you also get a Danube cruise as well.

It saves you from a lot of trouble, only that in some buses the roof of the upper part is very low and I accidentally hit myself because in the first bus it had a reasonable height. In the evenings they remove that cover. It's the only thing I would change

It was really nice trip. However I wish that driver gives more time for people to get off the bus. I was there with little kids And I was walking down the second floor when the bus is still moving just because I was worried driver will start to drive away.
