1and half hour river cruise
Feb 2020 • Couples
Booked online £8 each 1and half hour cruise well worth the price we could also buy drinks on board very cheap, a slow cruise with commentary on the few sites and bridges etc better to do the cruise on day one to see where you need to go in Budapest to see the sights lovely city

Hidden Budapest!!
We had hotel pick up to take us to meet this cruise and it was spot on in both directions!!
Upon arrival we had a short wait before being aloud to board what we thought was our tour vessel, a beautiful old paddle steamer. We were then herded onto a much smaller vessel hitched alongside!! So far not great!!
We were shown to our table having been given a glass of fizz and things started to look up!! The table was nicely decked out and we were lucky to have a very cheerful and helpful waiter who brought us a choice of red or white wine.
The buffet lunch was served and despite being a little canteeny there was plenty of assorted meat, some fish and two soups. We enjoyed what we ate and were entertained by our waiter as we bought drinks that were not included in the package after he had slipped us an extra glass of free wine!
Sadly there was no commentary as we cruised along and, even if there had been , we wouldn’t have seen much as the windows were constantly covered in condensation no matter how often you wiped them 😂
We enjoyed the experience but as a sightseeing expedition it left a lot to be desired!

Arriving on time - we boarded a lovely old river boat only to be hearded onto a smaller modern boat for the 2 hour lunch tour - which they managed to fit in to 1 1/2 hours.

The food was set out in warmers. Mostly meat dishes in sauce. Some awful looking fish. Rice veg and potatoes. Salads soup and desserts. All very factory canteen in standard. Packaged sauces and kept warm meats. The soup was the highlight. Nothing local like goulash.

If you were able to clear your window to take in the view you had no idea what you were looking at. No map or commentary or information.

One gents toilet which seemed to be mostly occupied for long periods by women. A small glass of wine wad included but you have to pay for refills. Average quality.

I'm pleased i did this - but won't go again.

10 minute walk to the boat
We booked online and went to Danube Palace. It took a few minutes of looking and asked in a sidewalk restaurant and found the lobby. We got our tickets and we asked to meet at 1:30. The guide arrived at 1:45 and told us it was a 10 minute walk. My mom was with us and in 2 minutes the guide was out of site. My wife ran ahead to let her know that we had a senior citizen with a cane and we had to walk slower. She was not very apologetic

We made it to the boat and sat at our table. The drink and buffet lunch was ok... nothing special but the view from the boat was fantastic. The narrative was very good.

The only issue was the walk to the boat. We would have taken a taxi when we arrived at 1:00pm instead of waiting to 1:30 to then wait until 1:45 and then walk for 15 minutes.

Just saying ...

:)

Excellent Cruise and Superb Lunch
Jul 2019 • Couples
We wanted a short cruise on the Danube and decided to include lunch and a glass of wine. Wow, is all we can say...the buffet lunch was amazing, as was the wine and drinks, and service. If we had the time we would have booked their dinner cruise...
Highly recommend this tour.

There was a group of men who were trying to make it a rowdy stag party type boat trip, but they were outside and we just shut the glass door so we didn't hear them as much. We missed some of the historical info, though, because of their noise. We had to go out there to get good pics, too. Not sure I would go on this trip again. Hopefully, that doesn't happen often.

Lunch cruise on the danube budapest
Apr 2019 • Couples
Overall the trip was wirth the money, the views on the boat were amazing! We had lunch included which there was lots to chose from & you could return for as much as you like! Very good choice. The only downfall is that we couldnt hear the commentary as it wasnt very loud & there were a few large parties at the other end of the boat. Would recommend though!

A different lunch
Dec 2018 • Family
It was a very nice lunch in the Danube with my family. We didn't notice that meeting point was in a building close to the river but it was easy to find them. We have arrived 10 minutes before schedule and on time we have been scored to the Cruise.

It was a buffet lunch, really very nice food, and you can eat as much as you want. They include the water and a glass of wine which was good.

There is no much more, you can see Budapest from the river and although there is a recorded guide playing in the background, it was not aloud enough to understand.

Staff was very nice and polite.
