We read the good and bad reviews carefully before booking the tour. We also hesitated when seeing some really negative reviews but turned out it was an amazing boat ride more than we expected. The meeting point is easy to find, it departs on time and free 1 glass of champagne or juice is offered. This is the best time possible to see both sunset and after the city lited up. 1 hour is a perfect duration and not rush at all. One thing could have been better would having small table for 2 instead of 4 so you don't have to sit with others if you're a couple.
Great atmosphere provided by the live gipsy musicians! Phenomenal performance on the violins and chello as well as on the cimballom! We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and I have asked for a serenade just for my wife! Amazing performance! Don’t forget to tip! The food was the the most amazing but tasty and good selection! Exceptional views from either side of the boat!
The cruise itself was very enjoyable and really worth it. However, some unpleasant points were the fact that the entrance line was not controlled and that is why some people who arrived after us managed to get in front of us. There should also be more chairs to sit on the outside of the boat - many people had nowhere to sit.
Impossible to have a bad trip on the Danube in Budapest. Night lighting is spectacular and the water smooth as glass. Couple of comments. Top open air deck didn’t have headphones so there was no audio available. We moved to bottom deck but missed the first part of audio. Beyond that excellent.
the cruise was very enjoyable. explanations in english about the buildings and sites were a nice touch, as the welcoming glass of champagne.
