Great way to explore cities

I have used several companies and I can say from experience that they go closest to attractions and minimise walking there. Also their bus frequencies are better than their competitors. They also have live guides on many buses and if not, their drivers control the commentary so that you see stuff based on what you hear. Recently I had used a competitor whose commentary was recorded and not in sync which was v frustrating. Big B app tells you the nearest stop and you can also track buses.

Two areas of discontent: not all buses have some covered areas on the top deck but they do issue well designed large capes with hood that make using the top deck easy without getting wet as they are long enough to protect you, your bag and bum from getting wet. I was a fool that sat upstairs when weather was bad. Secondly, I paid a bit more online than buying ticket on the day. They have reps at every stop who sell tickets.

I am converted and shall use them in future when they operate in a city I visit. Highly recommend them.

Bus routes are wrong today

The routes on this app are wrong today as they changed this morning but haven't updated. I bought a 2-day ticket yesterday and no one thought to mention that the (paper)map they gave me yesterday would be useless today. I also assumed the app would be correct. We wasted so much time trying to find our stop and work out why the bus wasn't going where we expected, only to find the routes were out of date. With limited time to enjoy this city I don't appreciate being sent on a wild goose chase. Terrible service and terrible app. If you have time to print new maps (all the bus drivers had up to date maps) then you should be able to update the app. Today this app is pointless. Shame because yesterday it was excellent and I would've given it 5*.

Big Bus Tour Budapest Hungary

BBTour was great to do. Easy to purchase tickets with kiosks well spaced out. You can even purchase tickets at your hotel.
Bus tour takes in all the major sites with clean modern open top bus. Buses stop regularly at pick up points which are well sign posted.
The BBT comes with an app you can down load which gives you instant access to all major tourists attractions with background history.
It also recommends places to eat and drink giving you money off any purchases.
Your ticket also includes a free boat trip up the Danube (night cruise really special) and you can hop off and off just like the bus - easy and enjoyable.
Definitely, recommend purchasing a ticket from BBT gives you more than you think.
Staff were polite and spoke several languages.
