Well organized, easy to get to seats, excellent performance, reasonable price. What more could you ask?
Concert was wonderful in the huge cathedral! Dinner was good on the river boat, but it was the beautiful lit buildings along the Danube that stole the show - what a sight!
The concert was amazing. Sit in the front on the right hand side so you have a good view of the organist and how he plays the organ with both hands and feet.
We happened to be in Budapest on a Thursday. My wife and I sat on the front row and soaked in the ambiance of the beautiful building while listening to the rich sounds. We also purchased the optional Danube dinner cruise and loved that also. The views of Parliament and the Chain Bridge will forever be imprinted in my memory.
The concert and cruise were amazing! Highly recommended for anyone visiting Budapest.
Basilica is a must see, concert was beautiful with a great acoustics. Cruise with a great night views, excellent gypsy band aboard, delicious food. It's a must do when in Budapest.
