Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Danube Symphony Orchestra Cimbalom Concert with Optional Danube River Dinner Cruise. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The concert was very nice, in a nice theatre. The Danube river cruise was fantastic. The food was good and varied. The only complaint I make is that the food was not labelled so my vegetarian friend found it difficult to choose vegetarian options.
I stayed for a week in Budapest during August 2014. The concert I attended was wonderful. The concert hall was really beautiful and the musicians very talented. The orchestra played a selection of classical pieces. Most pieces were well known and played with verve and enthusiasm.
Later we walked to the ship which took us on a trip down the Danube. I paid for a dinner and was so pleased I had. There was a very good selection of dishes in buffet style and the quality was excellent. The view of the buildings on the banks of the Danube at night is stunning and should not be missed.
I would fully recommend this tour
Lots of fun
This is not a chamber orchestra or the world,s fanciest performance, but the music was excellent and the conductor was engaging and funny
The dinner after the performance on the river cruise is a must-do: perfect night
The music played was just lovely but we were expecting a more opulent setting. The concert was held in a building in need of some TLC, the room was basic and very hot and the wine offered was barely drinkable.
It also would have been nice if the orchestra had acknowledged the audience by greeting us at the beginning of the concert and the return after the intermission. It also seemed strange that the orchestra came on, sat down and began to chat to each other as if we were not there. I think a more professional approach would have made it a much more enjoyable experience.
