    Would do it again!

    Seeing Budapest at night it's a MUST to do.. it's absolutely gorgeous so i highly recommend. So honestly i didn't give so much attention to the details. Now, taking into consideration that we booked this cruise with only a few hours before and it was quite a good price, i won't complain about the conditions. Is not the best boat nor the most clean one, but for sure it does it's job for 1 hour. It was a very nice tour, there was also a tape in English and German that gave us a lot of explaining so it was also very educational, with lot of details and it was exactly linked with the route. We booked the cruise from 9 PM, but got there at about 8:40 when was about to leave the boat that was scheduled at 8:30pm, so we took that one instead. All went smoothly, had no problem, we also found very easy the dock from where the boat left. I would take it again.

    Good service

    The trip is really good and is a good idea to take it. The only suggest to clarify the stops of the boats. There is only one not two different.

    A must do at night!

    This trip showed off Budapest at its best - at night! The lit up buildings were stunning and the trip was informative and an hour was perfect on a warm autumnal evening.
