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.
This cruise is a must when you are visiting Budapest. The cruise helps you see the beautiful city of Budapest under lights it's just magnificent. If you are bored by the old heritage and bars just take this tour to relax and admire beauty of Budapest.
Nice 60 minutes cruise up and down the Danube - no instructions The welcome sparkling wine was cold but the purchased white wine unfortunately was very warm.
