    Hello, We just purchased a tour for 8 of the Buda Castle with funicular ride and river cruise. The description and time on the website now seems to have changed from when we placed the reservation this morning. We were under the impression that the castle tour at 10:30 would include the national gallery, library and history museum:

    1. Matthias Church – Trinity Statue – Fisherman’s Bastion
    2. Military Museum – Mary Magdalene Church Tower
    3. Toth Arpad Promenade – Arthur Gorgey Statue
    4. Palace of Buda: National Gallery – National Library – Budapest History Museum – Matthias Fountain
    5. Royal Palace – Sculpture of mythical Turul bird
    6. Funicular ride from Castle Hill top to Adam Clark Sq by Chain Bridge (Cable Car ticket included)

    Our email confirmation says the tour excludes entry to gallery, museum, and library. Please clarify. Thank you,

    • Dear Amy,

  3. I want to book Buda Castle Tour with Funicular Ride and River Cruise Booking for 23rd morning tour for 2 adults and a kid (3 years). I am not able to book online on the site.

    I could make payment through my card. let me know.


  4. Quick question from someone looking to travel from Canada to your lovely city. How far in advance to you permit one to buy tickets for your castle tours? Thank you.

    • Dear Dara,

      thank you for your email.

      Tickets need to be booked at least 3 days before the actual program.

      I hope I could be of help.

      • I was more wondering if we can buy tickets 2 months in advance.

        • Hello Dara,
          it is possible to book for dates until the end of the year, so please feel free to check the calendar in the booking form for available dates.

          • Unfortunately the calendar doesn’t go past March so I will try entering the dates in manually and see if it works.

          • I tried and it doesn’t allow me to book past March 31st 2018, and it tells me that it cost €500,202,273,600.00 which obviously is incorrect. Is there anyway I can book this directly with a person, your online booking system seems to not be working properly.


          • The price issue I figured out, I had put my phone number in where it says “number”. It still won’t let me book though, we’re looking for 2 adults for April 17, 2018 for the full 3-in-1 3hr tour (Castle Tour & Funicular & Cruise).


          • Dear Dara,
            I apologise for the misunderstanding.
            I advised to check the calendar if it allows you to book.
            Indeed, this program can only be booked until Mar 31, as for the summer season the prices will change. The prices will be confirmed by the end of February, so further dates will be open in the calendar after that. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

          • Dear Dara,
            the “Number” field is for indicating the number of guests, not a phone number. Thank you for your understanding.

          • Thank you, we’ll keep our eyes open and check back in a few weeks!

          • Hello,

            Checking back on your site, looks like you still haven’t set up tour booking for April. Is there a timeline on that? In your responses above you mentioned it would be up by the end of February but we’re nearing the end of March now.

            Thank you.

          • Hello Dara,
            unfortunately the prices have not been confirmed yet.
            Hopefully it will be on sale this week.
            Thank you for your kind understanding and patience.

          • Ok great thank you, we’re going to be in Budapest in a month (mid-April) and really don’t want to miss out on this tour. Hope you guys get this up soon.

  5. Good Afternoon,
    I am trying to purchase the 3 in 1 Castle tour for 2 people in English for the afternoon of April 24, 2018 from 4 to 7:30. When I go to purchase link the page goes back to booking information all over again. I have tried several time with no success. Please assist.
    Thank you


    • Dear Martha,
      thank you for contacting us.
      I have noticed that in the meantime you have made a valid booking.
      Thank you for your reservation, and have a nice time in Budapest!

  6. I am looking to book the Buda castle tour with funicular ride and river cruise for the 22nd of March 2019. This is a Friday but I have seen that between April and October it is only available Monday, wednesday and Saturday. Are these still the only days you do the tours between November and March?

    • Dear Sam,
      thank you for contacting us.
      I can confirm that this tour is available every day between November 2018 and March 2019.

  7. I just booked the walking tour, Funicular, and cruise. I got a paypal receipt but did not receive a voucher in my email. Is there somewhere else I can find my tickets?

    • Hello Madeline, thank you for letting us know. I’ve just re-sent the confirmation email manually (which serves as your voucher, so there is no extra attachment to the email) from our backup address. Hope it goes through. Could you please check your spam folder too? The auto confirmation was sent 2 hours ago, and it may have ended up there.
      Please don’t hesitate to contact us if there is any inconvenience.
      Have a great time in Budapest.

  8. HI,

    i have a Buda card and can i get any discount or benefit from the card. please inform?

    • Dear Abby,
      the Budapest Card discount is unfortunately not available in case of the Castle Tour & Funicular & Cruise program.
      The Budget Castle Tour is free for Budapest card holders, advance booking is not necessary.


    Good Morning,
    It appears that the booking function on your website does not allow any future booking beyond March. Is there a way to book for April?
    Donna S.
