    It was great to see some of the amazing landmarks, especially at night time.
    The reason for the low rating is because there was no commentary or no information of what it was we were looking at. It would have been nice to know a little bit about them.

    The cruise was nice and offered great views of Budapest in the evening. But one point. They could accommodate only a certain number of their guests in the enclosed heated area. Rest had to seat on the open deck. It was a bitterly cold December evening and it was windy as well. Not everyone might like that. Since all their guests pay the same, they should make sure that all have access to the same amenities.

    Enjoyable and confortable sightseeing boat. I did the 15.40h boat trip at sunset and it was amazing.

    I cannot say much but stunning panorama, friendly staff and nice drinks. I can only recommend to everyone.

    We had a great view of Budapest from the water and were kindly welcomed with gluwijn. It was quite cold outside but there were blankets to keep us warm. Highly recommend!

    This is a tour for the local, young drinkers rather than for foreign tourists. There was a derelict boat parked in front of our boat. We had to walk through this derelict boat. There was no narration so we had no idea what we were seeing. What could you expect for $10. Take a dinner cruise on another tour company's boat.

    Budapest on the river at night is a must. It is gorgeous. Our cruise was under an hour, welcome drink was choice of juice or vodka drink in paper cup. My drink was good. If you are looking for excitement, choose a different cruise.

    Simple tour. Nice boat. Not much commentary about the sights. Just cruising for 1 hour where you get to see all the important sights. The evening cruise around sunset was the best because you get to enjoy the views during both day and night (after lights come on). Overall, this was a good, no frills tour that I would recommend to anyone who wants just a boat tour without any of the dinner or party gimmicks.

    Pier 42 has an old boat moored there which doesn't make one feel confident But then the real boat pulls up and it's in great shape. The staff was very welcoming and professional, giving out free drinks and making suggestions about where to sit. The cruise is amazing Our night was cloudy with a drizzle but made for incredible photos of the lit up attractions in Budapest. For the price this cruise and staff can't be beat!

    The view of Budapest from the waterway was amazing. The boat however was not. The complimentary drinks in plastic cups you should definitely miss. The boat was putting it nicely, tiered. We joked with some other people on the tour if the boat would stay afloat for the one hour trip.
    The boat was crowded and having to walk through a boat being renovated to get on and off our cruise was not a pleasant experience to start or end the trip.
    The only reason this tour got 3 was because of the beautiful city view.
