From the river, Budapest, which is frequently cited as one of Europe's most beautiful cities, is even more stunning. The Gellért Bath, Mt. Gellért with its Freedom Monument and the Citadella, the Buda Castle, and the Fisherman's Bastion are among the World Heritage Sites on the Buda side, which extends from the Chain Bridge to the Technical University. You can marvel at iconic structures like the House of Parliament and the St. Stephen's Basilica on the other side of the river.

You'll have a lot of chance to appreciate drinks in the air-molded lodge and afterward head to the outside upper deck to respect the scene of Budapest around evening time.

The well-known "cimbalom," an exquisite original Hungarian instrument, is also featured in the performance. The cimbalom and string instruments create an unforgettable harmony that is uniquely Hungarian and create an outstanding atmosphere on board.

Do you want to hear your favorite popular song in a new way? Guests will have the opportunity to request their favorite songs during the performance.

We bought a boat with drinks and live music, and the experience was amazing, we like it.

I was really disappointed by this evening which is a shame because all of the reviews were really good. I don’t enjoy massive boat trips so wasn’t aware that what seemed like at least a few hundred people would be onboard. You meet at the Danube and then are briskly walked to the boat ( this was a complete shambles, no on the tour group had a clue where they were going or what the location of the boat was) would have been much easier to just meet at the boat. The cruise itself was fun for the first hour but after it felt really dragged out and there was just way too many people but that’s because I prefer much smaller experiences with less people.

What an amazing evening. The staff were friendly and courteous; it was all very well organised. The cruise lasted two hours, starting near the famed Shoes on the Danube, taking us past Parliament then back by the Citadel for a round trip. Our tour was at 7pm and Budapest at night was even more beautiful than it is during the day. The cruise was relaxing and fun, with brilliant value for money. Plus, there were plenty of opportunities to take fantastic photos. Everything was accompanied by live music, which ranged from traditional Hungarian to TV pop culture (A Game of Thrones was a favourite)! The atmosphere was so cosy and relaxed. I would heartily recommend this boat tour to any tourist visiting the city.

This was a great introduction to the city for me. We met at the office (not far from St. Stephen's Basilica) at the appointed time and then walked together to the river. This added an additional 30 minutes or so to the departure time, which made an already late evening, even later. Just something to consider. The sun sets very late in the summer so if you want a night tour, it will have to be late anyway. The views were beautiful and the live music made for an enjoyable atmosphere.

Mine was the night cruise with just welcome drink @10PM. The whole programme was well organized and I see few reviews saying that there's not enough space (two dining areas and a top deck) or not more than one drink provided for free. Well, it depends on how much you pay. It's clearly mentioned while booking. Moreover, it's not a "long" walk, around 500-600m only. Overall, it was a superb experience! Keep up the good work :)

It was one of those memorable evening cruises,excellent in views, people, setting and more. The best, I would say. I could get some of the Instagram worthy pictures too. The food and drinks were great along with music.

It was a great experience and a wonderful way to see the sights of Budapest lit up at night. We went for a drinks package, and it felt a little oversold and quite cramped in the room we were in. I’d pay more and book the meal next time, as the upper deck looked much nicer laid out. It was confusing whether the drinks package was table service or not as the waiter was missing most of the trip. Although when asked he did advise he would get drinks for the table. The live music was excellent, really entertaining. All in all, it was reasonably priced and a last minute excursion on our holiday which we really enjoyed, the sights from the river are beautiful in the evening and there was lots of room on the viewing deck. Would recommend!

The boat was lovely and we were greeted with a welcome drink and a second drink for our meal. However the food staff (2 lads) were very unfriendly and rude. A large serving spoon fell on the floor and I picked it up to give to one of the lads who before I finished trying to explain it had fallen on the floor declared " No speak English " whilst not even looking at me ! Upon finally looking at me he realised what I was trying to show and took the spoon. The same lad up In collecting our finished meal plates simply said " finished? " And nodded his head at our plates! The food was tasty but cold which was a real shame. However the views were great which, whilst no guide is provided, a simple map showing the highlights would have helped. Especially for passengers who had arrived that day . We knew most of the sights as we had been in the city a few days. Overall , good little trip but needs small improvements.

The tour is great! We took the evening tour and enjoyed the buildings at night. There is an audio guide included in the price in many languages (Greek, too) which gives you very interesting information about the city, not the one you can find in any guide, but the details you have to search for. I would recommend you do the cruise at the beginning of your visit in Budapest so that you get to know the city. The staff is very friendly and the drinks offered make the one-hour cruise more enjoyable.

We booked this cruise for our first night in Budapest and was not disappointed! It is the perfect way to see all of beautiful buildings/bridges. We selected the cocktail option and we’re very satisfied as they were delicious (strong too so a little tipsy by the end of the night!) There was some entertainment too which involved some traditional dancing, this was lovely to watch. Would definitely recommend this cruise, all the staff were also very helpful and friendly!
