    Perfektní! Milý personál, welcome drink (pomerančový džus nebo šampaňské). Přišli jsme o 20 min. dříve, abychom si mohli vybrat místa, kde budeme chtít sedět. Během plavby hrála hudba a také zazněl výklad o památkách, zajímavostech a fun facts. Loď se ani nehoupala, takže doporučuju i pro někoho, komu se normálně dělá špatně. Nemohu nic vytknout.

    The boat ride was great, I think 1 hour is the perfect amount of time to do an activity like this otherwise it would start to get boring. We went up and down the Danube 2 times and had a very thorough explanation of all the historical buildings and bridges etc….there was also ample time to take a lot of pictures of the parliament at night with all it’s lights. The employees were also super friendly. Would recommend.

    I hesitated to book any cruise as was not clear if the boats have a covered inside that is warm for winter. So I did book anyway, it was truly worth it. The bottom of boat is covered and warm and the top has a roof but open. You get a complementary champagne at the beginning and can buy more drinks or snacks if you want. The explanations of the sights is nice, clear and helpful. Above all , budapest has the most amazing river sightseeing places I have ever seen.. other than in Bangkok! Its a must tour, then in took 1 hour that traveling with kids it’s sufficient
