Kian C.

Beautiful ship, enclosed so it was warm but you could go up top with blankets. Glass of Prosecco included and had a nice menu of additional drinks. Lasted about 60 mins and have great views up and down the Danube. Only think I would want to add is some narration. We didn’t always know what we were looking at

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.

Our guide was just great and we had an unforgettable day. Since we were traveling with 9 people, including two pairs of grandparents, we got a bit off schedule and the guide was so nice and accompanied us through the city for over 11/2 hours longer than originally thought. The additional effort was absolutely limited, so that we saw everything, could go at our own pace and spent a great day together. She showed us all the important sights, showed us little secrets and hidden corners, paused with us in a beautiful coffee and then said goodbye to us in the castle district to a very tasty and inexpensive eatery.

I was lucky to see the ads of this boat trip. Cozy, comfortable and well managed trip, service was amazing, drinks were delicious and views of course- breathtaking. I would recommend smaller boat as Duna cruise, because they look and feel much better than bigger ones.

We spent half a day with Péter Balogh, who informed us very competently about the history and the individual sights of the city. But we would also like to emphasize that Péter speaks excellent German and was therefore able to tell one or the other anecdote in a very humorous way. So: If you want to get to know Budapest, in German, through a likeable contemporary, you should come back to Péter...

Eva our guide is a wonderful woman. The tour was amazing reach of so many informations she provided us that we wanted to write everything down. She is really like the perfect guide should be. Gentle, kind, emphatic, full of knowledge about the history and not only. It was a great experience thanks to her. We are really satisfied. Thank you Eva!

Comfortable lounge chairs on deck, good champagne, friendly crew. It's just a pity that there is no (audio)guide. I was missing the information on how / when to download this online guide. Apart from that: Honestly, who wants to read while on a boat trip and not rather enjoy the view?

Quite good, I recommend it for your first day in Budapest to see a bit of the whole city and stop where you want but for only 1 day the journey is always the same so for 2 days it's not very useful. The entire walk without stopping is 1h30, you have an audio guide in all languages and a map in paper version. The boat trip was good but too many people on the boat, we weren't able to get on the top of the boat which was a real shame
