This was one of the best things we did in Budapest!!!! The food was excellent with nice separation, all the travelers around us were all fun, the dinner and music were superb. But the very best were the sights! We must have gone up and down the river about 5 times and go so many gorgeous pictures we could never have gotten any other way! And we were asked to open the windows so it was like sailing past a storybook. This is a MUST trip and we’ll worth the money. We just loved it!

It was a lovely trip and the food was amazing with cheap drinks. A little disappointed that the trip went up and down the same bit and didn’t go the other side of St Margaret’s Island. They were quick to get us off at the end, clearly the drinks away before we had a chance to drink them!

It was a romantic experience on a open boat. To see the shores of Budapest while the son was going slowwwly going down and the city get lit up was truly magical. There were choices in the menu and the food was of very high quality. Overall a very excellent 3 hours spent.
