A Tour with a Twist
Most bus tours offer similar services–a nice tour around the major sites with enough information to make it fun. The RiverRide is different–about one-and-one-half hours spend half on land—and half on water! The amphibious bus floats on water and makes quite a splash. In addition to a land tour of major city sites, the bus cruises on the Danube for dramatic views of Buda Castle and Parliament up to Margaret Island and back.
Plenty of Room for Fun
The floating bus tour runs all year–with comfortable heating in the winter and air-conditioning in the summer. Tickets can be purchased at the tour office, at the bus stop (suggested to arrive 30 minutes ahead), and online. Seats are not assigned, but they are guaranteed with ticket. The tour guides speak English and German (and occasionally other languages) and an audio version of the tour is available in several languages. Pay attention! Trivia prizes are sometimes awarded near the end of the tour!
