The ride was good, the audio worked very well, the boat departed and arrived on time

It was a great journey with beautiful sightseeing and hot tea with honey. During the tour you can see the main sights of Budapest. The duration of the tour was 70 minutes and when the yacht went around the zoo it was a bit long and boring. Unfortunately, the audio guides and headphones didn't work.

It was very good, directions to the location were good and we had no problem finding the boarding point. A free drink as soon as you were on board was very welcome. The commentary was helpful to pick out the buildings, with a male voice for the Buda side and female for the Pest side. The bonus was that Margaret Island was open, which was closed when we booked up. All in all it was a really enjoyable experience.

We had a really lovely hour on the boat. There are headphones on the boat guiding your tour in multiple languages. You get a choice of beverages, I had wine and my partner had apple juice. The boat is covered so the weather does not prevent the tours from taking place.

A very informative cruise thanks to the audio guide, on a boat perfect for this tour, wherever you are you can see everything! Warm welcome with a warm welcome drink (December 25), we are delighted with this walk, we are a couple of 60 years old, with young adult children.

We were lucky with the weather, it was a sunny March day. The boat was clean and well run and the headphones on each seat providing history on what we were seeing was really informative. Later in the trip there was an option to get off on the Island in the middle of the river to explore and pick up a later boat to return. Times for the boats were handed out, which made everything easy. We thought the trip was very reasonably priced, well run and we had a great afternoon.
