Péter L.
Nice event, the illuminated buildings are really worth seeing. The cocktails were delicious and were brought quickly. Unfortunately, the ship first drove towards Margarethen Island and then south, so that we could not see the illuminated parliament from the ship. (Departure in mid-April at 7:00 p.m.) So maybe choose a later date - if possible.

Amazing views, inside the boat was nice and warm, and the drink selection was good (the hot mulled wine in particular, if you’re a fan.) The only reason it’s 4 not 5 stars is because the drinks come in plastic cups rather than glasses. A small thing, but the photo in the advertisement shows you get glasses.

It was a romantic experience on a open boat. To see the shores of Budapest while the son was going slowwwly going down and the city get lit up was truly magical. There were choices in the menu and the food was of very high quality. Overall a very excellent 3 hours spent.

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 available. I highly recommend booking this visit which has excellent value for money. With other tours I would have spent 20 euros per person.

Our night cruise was superb! A calm, nice experience on the river Danube. We were lucky enough to enjoy the sunset as well. The staff was friendly and helpful. While we were waiting for the boarding one of the kind staff members (think his name was Chris) kept us informed and entertained as well. Very witty guy!

Fabulous evening cruise on the Danube.Chance to see the sunset and then see all the main buildings and bridgrs lit up,it's beautiful. Great musicians play at each table and there are dancers on the deck where meals are eaten. Good choice of drinks,we had 3 free beers with our ticket. It was also a 2hr cruise which is longer than most. Highly recommended .
