    Polite staff, boat left on time and a nice leisurely pace up and back down the river. We did the 3.30pm and it was a nice end to our day sight seeing. My only complaint and it's a small one is that I couldn't finish my beer in time as we only had 20 minutes to drink it. Apart from that, it's a great way to see the city after seeing it from higher up for most of our other trips.

    It was a great journey with beautiful sightseeing and hot tea with honey. During the tour you can see the main sights of Budapest. The duration of the tour was 70 minutes and when the yacht went around the zoo it was a bit long and boring. Unfortunately, the audio guides and headphones didn't work.

    The +: Really nice cruise that allows you to see a global vision of the city and the monuments that litter the Danube, very nice staff and tea + glass offered (beer, champagne, soft…) The -: Too fast and not enough explanations (too much classical music compared to the explanations in the headsets) and a pity that the windows (quite dirty) do not allow you to take nice photos + Headphones used by everyone not hygienic. General opinion: Good value for money (We did it at 2 p.m. and we weren't on the boat much, it's even better)
