The boat wasn’t very pretty, it was exactly what you paid for. Looks cheap, old etc. However the tour itself was really good, great to see Budapest in the dark with amazing lights. Could’ve been shorter, but overall we enjoyed it and it was really...More

My wife and I booked an hour long "cruise" starting at 6:20 pm and were not disappointed by the views and sites. Excellent budget (approx £15 in total) experience especially when you compare it with the cost of the funicular tram to Buda Hill costing...More

Couldn’t really any fault this trip at all especially as it only cost us just under £8 each! The boat sails from Dock 42 at the Carl Lutz rakpart and it’s located just north of the Margaret Bridge. It’s about a 15 minute walk from...More

The sight of Budapest lit up at night is well worth the cost of this excursion. The food (which was quite good) and wine are the bonus. Also, the service from the two young ladies was good. This was one of the highlights of our...More

We did the cruise at out first night in Budapest to get a first impression of the city. It was great and the service on boat was very friendly and drinks were cheap. Best start for a city trip!

Easy to find at Dock 42. Get in line early if you want a seat inside, and even more so if you want a table next to the window! You get a warm wine or juice when you step on board. More drinks are available...More

Prompt, lots of seating, watered down mulled wine but tasted nice enough. Blankets if needed. Did a loop and down the Danube. Overall, a really enjoyable 90 mins! Would highly recommend for the price.

For the price you pay this is by far the best thing to do in Budapest at night! I recommend doing it on the first night - the views are stunning because so many buildings (The Parliament, The Castle etc) are lit up. Then during...More
