  • Live musical performance was fabulous. Dancers good but a bit stilted and contrived.

  • Top notch performance of dancing a stringed instrument group. Choreography was interesting and very entertaining. Highly recommended.

  • Just a little different but very entertaining.

  • We went to this show and had dinner on the Danube several years ago and what I remembered was a great show with great musicians so I booked our group of five couples early this month. I believe the dancers worked very hard and at first the performance was enjoyable, but then the musicians tempo and pitch became unbearable not to mention the young ladies attempt to sing. The musicians did not look like they were having any fun at all. I did like the stick dance very much. I hate to give such low remarks but everyone in our group did not want to stay past the first half so we left. I am sorry again for a bad review, but it is sincere. We did not do the dinner this time because we had been on a boat for the last seven days. My review is simply the show.

  • Excellent performance! Really a great cross-section of traditional and classical Hungarian melodies and dance.

  • The evening was wonderful and the service to and from the venue was done very well

  • Fantastic husband didn't want to go,but raved about it afterward.

  • This was a very nice and very interesting show. The only thing I didn't like about it was that they did not allow pictures To be taken. They also leave people to find their own seats, and as the aisle numbers are a little confusing, people end up sitting in the wrong seats and causing confusion for everyone involved. Besides those minor things, we enjoyed the show and the experience.

  • This performance was a highlight of my trip to Budapest. The dance troupe was highly professional, and the male dancers, in particular, amazed us with their athletics and stamina. Costumes and music added to the visual and auditory effects. The dancers used their shoes as percussion instruments, much as flamenco artists do. Wonderful!!!

  • Within the context of of Hungarian Folk Dances, the troupe performed as expected, with no really outstanding dancing to speak of. The live music was
    excellent and was, perhaps, the culminating event of the evening.
