Public Transport Tour of Budapest
Budapest features a remarkably comprehensive and efficient public-transportation system, so to truly experience Hungary’s capital the way that locals do, there is no better way than getting around the city by tram, bus, metro, and even ferryboat. During our 2.5-hour tour, participants not only try five different means of transport but also get a guided tour of the city in a special way. It’s much more fun than being locked up on the sightseeing bus! We offer a real-life experience – get to know Budapest and its dwellers as they live their everyday life.

”I LOVE private tours in different countries! It is really the only way to go. I don’t know how many of you have been trapped on a coach bus peering through dirty windows with someone on a mic not caring what you want to see. I will NEVER go on a coach bus again. It’s more expensive, and not nearly as personal. Fungarian has it right. Amazing service, great contact, this company deserves every trip advisor award they get.
… We got on the bus(Whoo hoo! Public transportation is awesome! A great way to live like the locals and figure out the local transit system with the help of a guide) … Milan treated us like his friend, and answered literally every question we could possibly ask. He loves his country, and was so informative and amazing.
We ended up hanging out with him all day and he really gave us the real Budapest tour. I fell in love with Budapest because of Milan.
