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.

The crew was very polite and offered hot cider and after that inquired if we wanted another drink. the ride was smooth and calm with relaxing music and the audio guide was in a varyaty of languages. overall it was worth it to pay a little extra and get the proper experience. about 70 minutes.

Great cruise in a beautiful location! Very nice boat with two levels and windows all around and friendly multilingual staff. Two drinks are included (one nonalcoholic and one alcoholic). Highly recommended for a nice time along the Danube river, with amazing views. A must do in Budapest!

Ae ry A very enjoyable trip in spite of the weather. A good service and value for money. An unexpected free drink was very nice. The staff looked smartly dressed too.

It’s a pretty boat and a great ride to take! The audio comments are interesting, we learn things about the city. However, several audio guides did not work, my companion had to change headphones and seats several times. The devices could do with a little updating! The 2 drinks are very pleasant, the spicy and sweet tea nice and hot on this cold day, as well as the glass of champagne. Choose seats on the deck, in the open air :)!

New and quiet boat. comfortable and pleasant excursion. to improve only a little service (the girls of the crew were very kind,but you notice the little experience: they spilled a glass of lemonade on me, without worrying so much). i highly recommend cmq because overall it deserves.
