Fab way to see beautiful Budapest by night

The meeting point is situated around a 10-15 minute walk from Jaszai Mari ter along the riverside, and was relatively easy to distinguish from the other docks. Upon arriving we were a little concerned about the state of the boat, and relieved when we realise our boat was behind another boat being renovated. The free cup of mulled wine was welcomed. There was also an option to purchase more drinks if you wanted. There was a choice of seats inside or outside, if you could brave the cold, although blankets were available. Glad we chose the cruise at 6pm as it coencided with sunset, and we got to see the city transform as the lights gradually came on. Perfect if you want an hour long no frills cruise, which is just what we were after. Was quick getting on the boat and showing the mobile ticket.

Great evening cruise and excellent view of the Hungarian Parliament

I booked this activity on the day - I was happy with the price paid, the welcome drink I got was tasty, and we got an amazing view of the Hungarian Parliament as the boat went up and back down the Danube river. I would recommend arriving fairly early so you can grab a seat outside at the front or the back of the boat. Having said that, even though we arrived probably 5 minutes before the boat was due to depart and all the outside seats were taken by that point, but we were still able to stand at outside at the rear of the boat (leaning against the railings) and got excellent views anyway! Would do again.

Nice cruise overall considering the price

For the price of the cruise it was good. There was a delay in boarding and during the cruise due to the additional restrictions on the Danube. The welcome drink was disappointing so we just ordered drinks once we set off. There’s no commentary, live music or anything with this but that’s what we wanted, a ‘no frills’ approach... if you get onboard, sit outside as that’s the only way to get a really good view.

Nice cruise on the river with good food and entertainment

This is a nice way to see the sights of Budapest from the river. It was well organised, the staff were very friendly and attentive. I was a little worried about the food having read the reviews but I need not have worried. It isn’t cordon bleu but is it of high quality and nicely presented. The piano battle is a bit cheesy but piano music as a back drop to the night cruise was perfect.

Great value for a simple sightseeing trip

For the price it was worth it. The boat was clean. However, no safety briefing announcement. Although a menu was provided, it didn't seem to have any snacks / beverages were available to purchase. A welcome drink was available. I saw blankets in the corner, but staff did not interact at all - in fact I only saw someone when we disembarked.
