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.

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!

Impressive! A delightful sight from the water to Prague, a wonderful walk along the Vltava River, a wonderful motor ship, excellent service! Musical accompaniment during the whole walk, a very talented group of musicians. And of course a very delicious dinner. We were thrilled! Thank you

We took the 5:30 pm cruise. The boat was elegant, staff courteous and attentive and lovely sunset and night views along the Danube. The staff were generous with the Prosecco and kept the glasses full. Highly recommend this cruise. Was a highlight of our trip

The views of the illuminated Budapest from the Danube side - wonderful. On the ship too loud music and a lot of people, prosecco very good and it was taken care that the glasses were full. It is definitely worth taking this type of trip!

lovely cruise to do as a couple with stunning views of the city. the pizza was what you expect and the whole thing was good value for money if you like to get a few drinks in while going down the river. we went during night time in winter (4:30pm) and unfortunately the front of the parliament wasn’t lit but the rest of it was. we walked down to there other days and it seemed to be the same each time. Other than that everything else was lit and it was beautiful to see the city. I would recommend getting there 30 minutes before your slot if not slightly earlier as there was a big queue and if you wasn’t one of the first you would be unable to get a window table and end up being stuck in the middle of the boat.

My friend, boyfriend and I used this as a kick-start to our Budapest trip. After a day of walking tours and exploring the city, we hopped onto this boat and had a very happy amount of drinks! We booked the 7pm and the only thing we would do differently in hindsight is maybe book the later one, just better for our drinking preference.

Just amazing. The boat and setting was fantastic and a great way to see budapest by night. The parliament building is stunning at night. But the best part was the best food we had eaten for quite a while. Fine dining quality. Sit nearer the bar as we were as I can imagine the live music might be a little loud nearer to them.
