Make sure to scope the meeting point out before hand if possible, we werent sure we were in the right place. But once taken aboard, we had a wonderful time, we thought we paid for the drinks only but ended up being seated for a meal, which was a nice surprise and lovely food. Buffet meal and drinks was great. But really only booked it for the view at night which was amazing and totally worth doing. I would highly recommend a boat trip at night.

Great to see lots of interesting buildings and bridges lit up at night. Well organised. We chose the drinks only option and sat on the top deck for lots of photo opportunities.

River cruise on the Danube River was beautiful. Finding the meet up location was a bit tricky. However, it was very much worth it. : The parliament building is absolutely beautiful at night.

I chose the Drinks only option, which was fantastic value for money. If I was to do the trip again I would visit the meeting point before hand, as we found it a little difficult to find at night.

This was a brilliant tour, a trip along the Danube at night, with drinks included. The city shows itself beautifully at night, as all the public buildings, bridges and many monuments on both sides of the river are lit. There were also no heavy-handed efforts to provide tour-guide information. The price was also reasonable. Keep that going! By the way, don't bother with the dinner version of this trip--it would keep you below deck eating, when you could be taking in the stunning view.
