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.

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.

That a perfect fair for this money! We had live music with dances of profesional dancers. Ship is big and you can outside to enjoy the view. Other than this you have your table when you can enjoy the bar drinks and food. Really, for this price is PERFECT!

Really worth seeing Budapest at night and the trip was lovely. 2 free drinks and the option to buy more for a cheap price. My only criticism is the room where the live folk music we had booked to see was in a room downstairs with bright lights so you could hardly see the river views. We quickly went out on the deck, as did pretty much everyone, but felt bad for the musicians as they were left performing to about 4 people.

Easy to find meeting point through the app. Outside the building there is a sign indicating the meeting point. I went in and they gave me tickets for the tour. At 3.30 pm our guide arrives and accompanies us to the pier for departure. A beautiful 1 and a half hour tour that reaches the last bridge. Suggestive is to see that from the light of day, the buildings and bridges around 4.30 pm begin to light up giving a breathtaking sight. The speaker explains only in English. There is bar service a...

A bit awkward at first, as you first have to exchange the voucher for tickets in the office in the city, then you go to the boat with a guide and then crowd around the next boat with a hundred other guests. The table is then assigned to you. The explanations in English via loudspeakers are also difficult to understand, since it is quite noisy inside due to the bar operation etc. Nevertheless it is a very good offer for the price, you can see a lot of the city, the journey takes 90 minutes, th...

A first drink (Champaign-not good) and a coupon for a second one (beer/wine/soft drinks) were enough for the 1.5 hour of the cruise. Especially the beer was worthy to taste. The musicians that kept as company were very friendly. They knew at least one song from every place on earth to play when the come to your table. Unfortunately it was raining and we couldn't admire Danube from the Deck of the ship. Although the price was a bit high for what was included it was a nice experience.

We booked this event on line for my birthday. We were pleased we booked it before we travelled, it worked perfectly. We had a lovely evening, the beers were nice and we had a bottle of fizz. The music was great and the guys came round asking for requests. Would highly recommend this evening. The sights along the river at night are fantastic.

Clear recommendation, as it is very good value for money. The actual tour did not start at 7:00 p.m., but only at 7:30 p.m., but covered all the sights in 1.5 hours, so there was ample opportunity to see the hotspots that were illuminated when dusk fell to photograph. At night, the already magnificent buildings appear even more magnificent. The drink prices on board are also moderate - I only paid €2.50 for a 0.5 l lager beer (= 990 HUF on 03.06.22). All in all a clear recommendation and glad...

We went for the cheaper option which excluded the food, so I cannot comment on that aspect but the live music was exceptional. What a fabulous violinist! Fun and familiar tunes played, so your toes will be tapping along. The boat is quite lovely. Clean, attentive staff, good drinks, immaculate toilet facilities and a lovely large open deck on top so passengers can get those fantastic nightime shots of the city at its best. Happy to highly recommend.

Beautiful cruise in magical Budapest at night. We took the formula without a drink and sat inside as it was cold. too bad the musicians circle around you playing to get a tip, otherwise it would have been very relaxing
