  • Pleasant trip with a decent buffet meal.

  • The night cruise highlighted the spectacular riverfront of Budapest. It would have been helpful to receive a little commentary/history while we cruised by the sites.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • It seamed like k-mart blue light special we were jammed into a non organized boat, terrible food service. Very disappointed

  • Disappointing. We booked for our Silver Wedding Anniversary thinking this would be romantic, but we were sat at a table of 10. The bright lighting inside the boat reflected off the windows so obstructed the views of the sights a bit. There was a better view from the upstairs bar, so I would recommend skipping dinner and go for the drinks only package. Dinner was decidedly mediocre anyway. Mass produced buffet. I would recommend going out for a nice meal before boarding and go for drinks only package. Better value and better views,

  • Enjoyed the beautiful boat ride and music playing nice way to end trip in Budapest.
    The voucher ticket office was a little hard to find glad we left early .

  • We were waiting to start an organised tour in a few days and had free time. This was on our itinerary on the tour but decided to go with Viator instead, and we are so glad we did.
    We had hotel pickup and drop off, an amazing late night cruise with champagne, live string quartet playing and hardly anyone one board.
    A very relaxing cruise with stunning views of a very beautiful city. Thanks for this one Viator..

  • I would not recommend this tour. We arrived at the meeting point and had to stand outside waiting (the inside area was full) for everyone to arrive. We then had to walk to the boat. This was a considerable distance away which was not mentioned anywhere on the booking. My Uncle has trouble walking long distances and this was quite a challenge. In addition to this the walk was through the dirt and my mum, who had worn her nice heels, got dirt all in her shoes. We booked the option with 2 drinks. The first one on arrival was half a glass of very sweet sparkling. The program noted a second round of drinks would be brought to us although it never was. My mum asked for water which they said they would bring and didn't. The second glass of white wine we got from the bar was poured from a bottle sitting on the bar top and was warm. We sat inside underneath and there was a string band playing which tried to make us buy their CD. Very disappointing all in all.

  • Loved this late night cruise! What an amazing way to see a city with so much heart!

  • We planned to take this tour, on the night scheduled there were severe thunder and lightning so we decided not to go. We went to the tour facility ready for the cruise and asked if the still go in a storm and the agent said of course . Since it was storming we figured that sitting on the top deck was out, and the inside would be crowded we decided not to go. Therefore we can't rated the cruise But as far as the tour company itself, they seemed unorganized and somewhat amateurish. If the opportunity arises again in the future I will book thru another tour service
