Sight seeing tour in Budapest - commercial
Heroes Place in Budapest You can get an up to 4 hours long guided Sight seeing tour by bus at "Deák tér" Square. Here is the central metro station, where Budapests all three metro lines cross each other. The buses shuttle between Heroe´s Square  (left pic) and Royal Castle (next pic), just about always getting stucked in a bumper-to-bumper traffic jam in the "Andrássy út " boulevard. Even if nobody ever tells you, it is a nice revenue stream factor for the bus drivers and guides too.  
Sight seeing tour in Budapest - on your own
Budapest - Royal Castle Hill Alternative Sight Seeing
Shuttle along the eastern Danube riverside in Pest by streetcar N° 2. For the first time it will give you a general view of Budapest and also some ideas for your favorite visiting worth objects.
Our tip is a non commercial alternative sight seeing tour for better sunny days, like every sight seing tour. Up to your activity, it may take at least two hours up to a half day.  

Fot this tour you should buy enough tickets for the street car. You´ll come off best with a one days, three days or weekly ticket for tourists. You also better prepare yourself for this tour by collecting some brochures about Budapest, probably on your arrival at the airport. So you do´nt need a guide and you are independent to visit the places, you are interesting for. To make this tour, it´s up to our guests in this holiday apartment, to take the street car at the Elisabeth or Chain bridge.

First your way to the 
On the right side of the street car, this yourney will give you a beautiful panoramic view over the river Danube up to the Royal Castle Hill with Fisherman´s bastillon, Matthews church and of course to the Royal Castle too. After a bit lower ridge you´ll see the Mount Gellert with the freedom monument on its peak. Now you may get out the street car at the "Freedom" bridge or go farther, if you are interesting for modern architecture or you just want to buy your ticket to a cultural performance. In last case you get out the street car at "Lágymányosi híd" bridge. Here you see the new cultural center of Budapest with the national theatre and philharmonic hall - both of them in a new stylish modern architecture building, right on the riverside.
Your way back to the North:
You get out at "Freedom" bridge, just opposit to the Mount Gellert. - Untill 1948, when sowjet dictatorship really begun to work, the "Freedom" bridge was called Franc Joseph Bridge, because it was a present of the imperator and Hungarian King Franz Joseph to his wife Elisabeth, the so called Sissi. She really was called Lissy by her housband, from the lisping Habsburg family. - The best time to arrive here is before noon, because the crowd is´nt that much, like getting later.
Szabadság híd
The Big Market Hall of Budapeste is one of Budapests touristical attractions. You should use the time for your grocery shopping by being here. Upstairs there is a restaurant, where you may sit down. What you get there, that is about the same, you may eat in any Hungarian restaurant in your home country, if there is one in your neighboring area. You may manage your time better at one of the sandwich bars in this market hall. They offer smaller snacks and you can taste really Hungarian specialities, you wo´nt ever find in Hungarian restaurantsat in your home country. After the meal and refreshment we leave the market hall and continue our trip to the North by the same street car line. Große Markthalle
Parliament building Now we make the drive to the North and see again the river Danube on the left side. We go untill the last station at Margareth bridge. 1 or 2 stations before this bridge,  the street car goes around the parliament building, which is an object of architectural interest. The parliament at Kossuth Lajos tér Square is 96 m high, exactly as high,  as the St. Stephans basilica is, but you won´t see the basilica on this trip.
At last station you take the reversed drive and now you may see the parliament again, architectural freaks can´t see it often enough. By leaving the parliament, we have this beutiful panoramic view over the river Danube up to the Royal Castle Hill, to grave it in your mind for long.
Now it´s up to you, how often you make this trip, just to enjoy the panoramic view, buying a ticket to a concert or just to make your usual grocery shopping.
