The boat tour is okay. You can see everything and the boat is okay. The tour is a bit boring and you can't always hear the audio. They do say everything in english and german. You can buy some drinks up front but only if...More

Dear ElskeK3, Thank You for the review. We are sorry for Your bad experience. It is hard to find the right balance with the audio guide. Sometimes we receive comments that it is too loud, sometimes it is too quiet. It really depends on the...More

We travelled with two young babies. Its hard to find info online about whether tours are suitable for babies / buggies etc. This was around an hour. Up and down the river. Steep walkway onto boat but managable. Staff on board very friendly and helpful.More

Dear Sarellard, Thank You for Your review! Unfortunately the low water level made our bridge very steep, usually, we are easily accessible, but since it depends on the Danube, we can not state it. But we try to give more info at the next update...More

It seems like it's the cheapest boat tour in Budapest. The night view of Budapest is awesome and worth looking. But the voice of the instructors was too low so I could hardly hear the introduction of the places on both riversides. Overall it was...More

No need for pre-registration. We took only the cruise for 6000 forints, it is always more expensive to pay in euros. You first board a steady boat which works as a waiting room and when the boat from the cruise comes, you board the next...More

Great company, well organised and great value for money. We paid around £8.00 for an hours night time river cruise and got a free hour day trip included in the cost. Views from the boat are amazing especially at night with all the buildings lit...More

Decided to do this 1 hour cruise on the Danube this afternoon. Took the 3.30pm cruise. The deal includes 2 drinks on board. My friend was keen to hear the audio on the boat but the noise of the engine was so loud upstairs that...More

I thought the boat trip was brilliant, we arrived 20 minutes before the departure time, we gave us time to get a drink and be first in the queue for boarding which meant best seats at the front (for the night cruise) We also used...More

1 hour-ish cruise with the option to hop off onto the island for a bit. Toilets were awful and hospitality was Hungarian but overall the cruise was quite informative and cheap. Upstairs was busy.

Budapest is so beautiful at night, and you won't find a cheaper night cruise than this. Lasts about an hour. There is a loudspeaker explaining the sights (quite a bit about history) that speaks in English and then German. Unfortunately, it is a bit difficult...More
