We had taken the Budapest history walking tour earlier in the day so much of the information and sights were similar. It was, however, impressive to see the historical sights all lit up at night and we enjoyed the boat ride which gave us the most incredible photos of the sights along the river. There was also a wonderfully narrated video on the boat which had great information about the landmarks. Being on the Danube at night in this magnificent city is magical!
The walking tour is informative and the Parliament is particularly breathtaking. You will need to book other tours if you want to go in any of the buildings since it is just a two hour walk and lets you see so much. Then you board a ship for an unforgettable cruise on the Danube with amazing palaces, churches, cliffs, seemingly hundreds of impressive things to see. I very highly recommend this tour.
Our tour guide Balintin was great. A great tour
Amazing tour as there was very knowledgeable and informative guide.
Our tour guide was very informative and she definitely did a wonderful job. Highly recommend this if you would like to get to know Budapest in a time-limited but informative way.
This tour was amazing!

The first night we arrived in Budapest, we had booked the night walking tour with the river cruise. Our guide was George and he was fantastic! His energy level was contagious, he encouraged questions both of him and those he asked of the group, and he gave us a great overview of the city. We saw many of the main historical sites, which were extraordinarily beautiful through twilight and as evening descended onto Budapest. It really helped us determine where we wanted to revisit later in our trip. We were definitely sad to leave him when we boarded the Danube cruise, but he encouraged us to stop by the shop if we had any questions about what to see later in our trip. The Danube cruise was beautiful, but it was a little long in my opinion and the video on the boat wasn't nearly as entertaining as George. I even found it a little distracting with so many of the beautiful sites right outside the window. Overall, the night walking tour is a great overview of the city and the cruise is a great way to rest your feet after a long day of walking. Highly recommend.
Brigitte gave us a lovely tour. She is passionate and knowledgable about her country. My husband and I were the only ones in this Monday night tour so it was very personal. We highly recommend thus your especially if you do no have a lot of time in Budapest. It is a good way to understand the history and geography.

This trip was wonderful - we learned so much more about the history of Budapest and were able to understand the symbolism behind so many of the incredible sights in the city.
Great tour.. Our guide Zsolt is so well informed.. He knows the history and perhaps everything else about the city and the country.. The tour was very nice and comfortably paced and it showed us practically everything on the Pest side.. The river cruise is NOT TO BE MISSED.. If you are in Budapest for one evening, go for the cruise and leave everything else.. It is the highlight.. Absolutely stunning..
