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!

Peaceful journey along the Danube, with impressive and beautiful night views of the city. Large and spacious boat, which allows intimacy between the tables. All the tables are by the windows. Dinner is an open buffet, with about ten dishes to choose from, plus salads and various desserts. A drink is included, and if you want you can ask for a bottle of wine although they charge it separately. The journey is enlivened with live music, and lasts about two hours. You can go out on the deck to smoke and enjoy the views.

Really enjoyed this. The music was brilliant and entertaining and there was a good choice of food. I would have liked it more if it were longer...I would have enjoyed a bit more time to relax listening to the music or looking out at the water and sights with a drink.
