    The bus is always a good choice although these buses seem to run less often than most the cruise was nice, but realize you are on your own to find the two eateries. We skipped the coffee/cake - no idea where it was and no guidance since these vouchers are dropped at the hotel. We did finally find the luncheon restaurant. It was a considerable distance of anyplace we were or wanted to be but enjoyed it very much once we got there.

    We had too many activities planned to be able to fit in the sightseeing cruise, so we missed that part of it, but the coffee and cake was nice, and the hop on hop off bus is always a pleasant experience, no matter what city we visit, and this one was no different. It offered a stop right in front of our hotel, and had perfect stops at all of the sights. Would definitely recommend.

    Wonderful value for the itinerary and multiple activities. As a solo traveler, I took advantage of the total bundle from the bus tour, to the delicious dessert and coffee to the local cuisine dinner. I would definitely recommend this booking for a first-time traveller.

    Tons of hop on hop off tours in Budapest - hard to figure out where to get on the bus initially with our voucher the company didn't seem to know what to make of the vouchers. The lunch and cake at Gerbaud were ok but the staff seemed unfamiliar with our voucheres. The hop on hop off bus moved so slowly - we got off after about 1/2 hour and just walked every where else we wanted to go. We didn't even use the river cruise portion -it was just too frustrating!

    We felt this tour was overpriced and the lunch location was inappropriate. The restaurant was not on the bus line and we had a difficult time finding it. It took about 15 min. walking there in a district we weren't familiar with and the food wasn't that good. We felt it was a waste of our time. It would have been better if we could have had a 48 hour tour like they were selling on the street, and also if the restaurants were easy to find and right on the tour route. As it was, we only had time to use one of the meal vouchers and did not have time for the 1 hr. boat ride because we used the bus to get around to the different sightseeing attractions.

    Excellent package apert from the failure to deliver tickets to the hotel. This meant that there was a 30 minute argument in the coffee shop even though they had proff of the copy printed from the internet to say it had been paid for.
    The evening meal was fun - but far too much food!
    Would recommend.

    There are several reasons why I would not recommend this option.
    There information on tickets and where to go for the various elements is not clear. The tickets were not left at the hotel. They were however e-mailed after the hotel contacted Viator on our behalf, but without any instructions relating to the two venues for the meal and coffee. This is not however the reason why I would not recommend the combo.
    The problem is just that it was very poor value. The Hop on Hop off bit was fine - but could have been bought for about £15. This already included the river boat 'trip' which was 45 minutes in reality, but OK. I would recommend that people do this in Budapest as it is good for seeing all the main tourist sites.The cafe for the coffee and cake was very nice, but the restaurant for the meal was very off the beaten track and the meal was not very good and had no choice at all. So in terms of the extra money paid for the other bits I thoughts it was very poor value and not a good choice.

    This trip was really good and well worth the money. I was a little confused at first as to how to use our tickets but after printing off all the vouchers it was simple. the bus was great for seeing the main sights ( always on time) cruise was also very good for hop on and hop off. The restuarant meal was excellent and the staff were very friendly. The coffee and cake cafe was also really nice, had a nice old fashioned atmosphere. I would do this trip again.

    The boat was a scow we left before starting and found a very nice reasonably priced cruise on our own; the restaurant was so remote from the activity we didn't bother...better to do the HOHO and configure the rest from there.

  • 02-Nov-2013

    Provides the opportunity to see all the city highlights. Easy to use and frequent pick ups and drop offs. Check beforehand, many of the attractions do not open until late afternoon or close at one if you take the hop on /hop off on a weekend
