Travel: Budapest tourist city bus rides get the show on the road

Budapest is a well-known gem on the banks of the Danube – filled with beautiful sites, eons of history and a very… particular cuisine. But navigating through the maze of utcas, útjas, úts, térs and híds (streets, another sort of street, avenues, squares and bridges) can be overwhelming and confusing for the first-time tourist or an expat fresh off the boat.

Luckily, a fleet of maroon buses prowls the streets of Budapest all day long – offering tourists and explorers an affordable and informative way of experiencing the capital. Big Bus Tours will whizz you past all the obligatory sites in around two hours, but the firm offers more than an inexpensive hop-on, hop-off service.
