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.
Perfect guide with great sense of humour and very interesting background. It is of paramount importance that the guide himself is a big fan of the topic and the city. In our case it was a perfect match. Budapest is very convenient in terms of commuting by bicycle, there was just one steep ascent, but there is a possibility to rent e-bikes in case you doubt your stamina. I highly recommend to take this tour on your first day in Budapest - that way you get a clear understanding what sites you want to see during your visit no matter how long your stay is.
The staffs and the ride were very nice. The view in the night was excellent and the live music was really good. The wines that were offered were good but nothing special, most of them you can find in the supermarkets. I was expecting to get at least one normal glass of wine instead of a small glass of wine. But in the end the ride really worth the money. The staff, the live music, and the the view made the difference.
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.
