Cards were waiting for us on arrival at our hotel. Used for public transport and entrance to many museums and attractions. Great value for money.
Get it! The best way to see Budapest by far!!!
Extremely handy. We took full advantage of this card in both travel and accessing attractions.
The cards were waiting for me when I arrived at my hotel. There was a great booklet letting me know how to get the most value from my card. It was a great value.
Used transport throughout trip, heard horror stories about fines if you didnt have a valid ticket, however not once was we approached and asked for our ticket.
The card was fabulous...also got one in Budapest. well worth the money. Word to the wise....watch for pickpockets on public transportation.....it is true that they are bold. Caught one in the act with my purse on trolley...dropped what he grabbed and ran off when the doors opened.
Excellent value for those under 65 but we discovered that over 65's are free on all the public transport and over 70's are free to enter museums.
Very good value.
If you want to tour by public transit this is the only way to go. Used it many times while in Budapest.
Great way for discounts and free transportation.
This was a very easy and affordable way to get around Buda Pest. Bus 16 rules and pretty much gets one everywhere needed on Buda hill. The trams and underground are likewise easy to use and a good way to see the city.
Delivered before our arrival to our hotel this was a great buy. Used it for three days on tram and subway. went over Arpad Bridge from Buda to Szecheny Baths in Pest and the Subway all over the city. Went to Buda caste and at the best museum entry was free!
You will want a serious marker pen to write in the date and time you first USE the card. Get it.you won't regret it.
The card was great value and the city of Budapest was breathtaking!
The card paid for itself!
We loved the Budapest card. We enjoyed using the transit system and visiting museums when the day was too hot or rainy to stay outside. The card also included a 10:30 walking tour on any morning on the Buda side. We took advantaged on our first full day in Budapest. We took the 2:00 p.m. tour on the Pest side on our last day in Budapest. Both tours were quite informative.
This is worth it for the ease of using public transportation.
The Budapest card was extremely practical and very easy to use...once they arrived to the right location
This card was well worth the cost for the free public transport alone! Some of the other specials were not so easy to obtain, mainly because some staff at some venues were not familiar with conditions of the card.
I found the card to be an essential even if you just use for public transport as so convenient and saves money. Handy option of having it delivered to your hotel so pick up on checking in.
I used it for free entry to excellent museums and to roman ruins at aquicum. Savings too on other attractions.
Well worth having, free travel and lots of discounts at places to visit.
Well worth getting. I was in Budapest alone and traveled on all public transportation to see all the beautiful sites. I felt very safe. The card paid for itself. Heartedly recommend
The easy way to move around.
The best museums are free with the card as the Lucász Baths, in Buda.
When you spend 3/4 days it's the clever way to win some time.
Gave us the flexibility we wanted to see all the sights Budapest had to offer!
I recommend to by in advance the Budapest Card. It is very importante once you can use for tram, bus, and don´t loose time for anything, including the atractions that are included.
