5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

This cruise was very well organized with clear instructions where to meet. The cocktails were full sized and served in proper glass cocktail glasses so with the hour and a half boat trip I thought it was excellent value for money.
I would recommend this tour on the beautiful danube

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2014

the budapest cocktail and beer cruise is worth doing, i chose the coctail cruise and was given a nice this of cocktails to choose from, it is a good way to spend a hour on the danube, while looking at all the sites from the river.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better January 2015

I was disappointed as we spent a lot of intervals moored up, not even moving. I read that there were hot cocktails available in the winter months but there were none. Also the music was terrible. However the views of parliament and the bridges at night were incredible and the staff were polite.
