Beautiful Night for a Cruise
, Oct 2021
Great way to see the city lit up at night. Can recommend this cruise company. Beautiful experience on a great night.
Nite to remember
, Oct 2021
Directions were very easy. Though located on buda side we were able to use public transport to arrive right at pier. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Very cold nite, but they provided lots of blankets to keep warm. Just the right amount of time to view and take pictures. Narrative was in English and informative. Recommend for any visitor to budapest

The view of the parliament enlighten from the very start with the drink Contributed to an outstanding atmosphere. Well done
Great Experience!

Clear commentary given by a pre-recorded fluent English speaker. As the cruise progressed the buildings of interest at each point were discussed in great timing. Smooth cruising with a refreshing glass of sparkling champagne to start you off. A bit breezy and cold on the top deck at 8pm as the weather was not particularly good for September, but I got well wrapped up and was fine. There’s an option to sit downstairs inside if you felt cold. A few late comers delayed the start of the tour but only by 10 minutes. It took one hour and went under all the main bridges across the Danube and discussed all the main attractions. I learnt some very interesting fun facts (Erno Rubik who invented the Rubik Cube was Hungarian and went to Budapest University). I also learnt some fascinating historic facts about the area which I wouldn’t have found out had I not been on the cruise. Great tour and great value for money. Highly recommend.
Nice Budapest

Beautiful cruise

It was a beautiful cruise. The blankets are very appreciated if you are outside. You have time to take pictures and appreciate the landscape. Why not offer different languages ​​for the history of monuments...

Dear Bamelieb, Thank you for the great rating. We're happy you enjoyed our Night Cruise. Kind regards, Gergely
Beautiful Ride
, Dec 2019
Our original booking was missed by 30 minutes, due to the taxi driver not knowing exactly where we were going. We waited for the return of the tour to find it was the last of the evening. After explaining out predicament to the manager, he graciously added us to the next evening's list. We were greeted with a glass of champagne and blanket and took our seats on the spacious upper deck, for the best photos. The lights of Budapest did not disappoint! Commentary on the boat was informative and understandable and we were positioned to take advantage of the best photo shots. This was my second trip to the area and will do this tour again, should I find myself back in Budapest

Great views

...awful commentary. It was synthesized speech with no tone or inflection, making it difficult to follow at times and laughable at others. Grab your camera, go for the fantastic view and enjoy.

Dear El_Steve, We appreciate your feedback for improvement. Thank you. Kind regards, Gergely
Lovely cruise
, Nov 2019
I would highly recommended this cruise at night. Recorded commentary comes through all the speakers on the boat so very easy to hear. Blankets handed out if you are on the upper deck which is outside, obviously depending what time of year you go. or if you prefer lower deck is toasty and warm... The views are stunning so doing this night cruise is a must!!
