  • I give this trip 2 stars. For the wine and for the view. The boat was nice too. The rest of this evening was awful! It was not as expected. I am a single traveler. I thought it would be a lot of mingling while tasting. There was assigned seating and I was seated at a table with a group of Chinese people. The waitress who brought us our wine knew very little and couldnt answer any questions. She basically read the wine description on the placemat. She poured and left. She never walked around seeing if we needed more wine or if we wanted to buy a bottle. I waited about 15 mins between tastings and was afraid to go outside for fear of missing one. The complimentary Hungarian snacks was a basket of breadsticks!!!!!! So dont go on the cruise without eating first. The boat had a few things going on, a buffet dinner, wine tasting, and people just cruising. So it wasnt a very private space. This was so not worth 60!!!!!!!!

  • excellent trip! i would of liked more knowledge about the wine from the waiters, but all in all, well worth the money and Budapest is lovely by night

  • Really enjoyable, wine was nice, all the info was on the tablemat not someone talking about it, you are on a big boat, with people eating, or just sight seeing. Could see the sights or stay at the table and enjoy the live music. Ticket collection and the mad rush to get the boat..prevented 5* rating

  • Overall my wife and I thought the wine tasting cruise was good. The one thing we did not expect was to be seated at a ten person table on the main floor of the boat in a large room that can best be described as something out of a wedding reception. At first we thought we were kind of stuck sitting at the table waiting for each wine to get poured. We were trying to see out the glass windows on the main floor but there was a glare so it was not ideal. We realized pretty quick we could go upstairs and outside to enjoy the view so that is what we did. We just had to go back to our table every ten minutes to grab our next wine. There were a bunch of other tables around us where people sat that were mainly doing the dinner cruise. We are so glad we did not do the dinner cruise, the food was buffet style and did not look appetizing. Those people were also stuck sitting at the table the entire time to eat and in our opinion, were not able to take advantage of the views. The wines we had were alright, nothing spectacular, but it was different. We enjoyed being able to be outside on the boat. There are other boat tours that you are surrounded by glass and we were skeptical what that is like and if there is also a glare on the glass for those.

  • I sat with some very nice Canadians who took me under their wing, as I was a solo traveler. It was a beautiful evening on the Danube, the wine was excellent and I had a very enjoyable evening. I would highly recommend this tour from Viator.

  • We met infront if the Danube opera house and followed our leader to the boat, until then everything was fine. We then were put as a group in an area on the lower side of the deck. Our host, I believe her name was Mercedes, greeted us. After a while my colleague asked her what is upstairs and Mercedes told her 'Go and check', first inapropriate answer! after Mercedes came back to pour the wine I think she thought she was at an October fest, since she could not even pour the wine, we asked her to explain again what type of wine she was pouring and she barely answered, when asked again she rudely told us 'read the paper'... Probably it was her last day of work or had some personal problems... We will never know because we will not come back for sure! I have been organising tours in my country for wine tasting and this one was horrible! It could be a problem with the host since most people commented positively... we opted for this tour because of the positive comments we read on trip advisor... P.S the breadsticks are the only snacks offerred we ate them still, to toast for Mercedes : Not worth the 30 euros for 'wine tasting' its a pity since we were 3 agents checking to see if the activity was worthwhile. In the meantime we would like to congratulate the Music guys, because they are the ones who kept us a bit entertained, as well we would like to thank Sabina for replacing Mercedes, even though we are sure she was influenced by Mercedes against us.

  • Al no tomar el tour con la cena por la hora y la cantidad de comida que hay en el menu no hay opción de pedir ningún acompañamiento para el wine tasting

  • This tour was amazing!

  • I choose this tour because I thought it would a great way to see the city at night and to taste local wines. We were downstairs on the boat and there was a large crowd upstairs having the buffet. In order to appreciate the city I had to go up to where the other people were eating and go outside in a small area. We were inside in a crowded room. Just not what I expected.

  • We loved this cruise. Budapest at night is gorgeous. The wine tasting is relaxing and enjoyable. However, the show stopper was the violinist trio! The lead violinist is unbelievably gifted with his talent. I would highly recommend this cruise.
