A great evening ..... plenty of room on the boat .... Great views .... lots on English people on board so good conversation ... the Hungarian music trio weren't bad ... if a tad cheesy. Wine not the best but worth price.
When you meet outside the theatre you need to actually go inside to exchange your voucher for a proper ticket
This cruise was worthwhile and we loved every minute of it. The scenery was beautiful and Budapest at night is breathtaking and so romantic! The staff were very friendly, the music was excellent and the wines were delicious.
The city, people, restaurants, and bars, were fantastic! it was a great trip.
Good value. Not the best wines ever, but very generous pours. Fantastic views of Budapest at twilight.
Excellent wine tasting on the Danube.Wines were mostly very good.Met some lovely people on board.A pleasant couple of hours.
This tour was awsome, you get on board for a 1.5 hours trip, the wine tasting is great and by then everyone is tipsy and laughing out loud. The views are amazing ant its also a very romantic atmosphere with groups on the 3 floors of the ship playing violin,etc. First you are placed at a table of 10 ppl strangers but you can take your glass of wine and go wherever you like on the upper deck to admire the view or smoke and come back to get your next glass of wine, or just stay at the tabl and conversate, i recomend for the price it was amazing.
Such a great value for the money! The price is alone worth the night cruise to see all of the buildings Parliament, Castle District, etc. lite up at night. 7 wines were sampled and you get a decent pouring of each wine. Cruise lasted 2 full hours with nice music on board and plenty of open deck on top of the ship for pictures. Very well managed.
The boat was bigger than expected and pretty classy! It was a little awkward at first, sitting with a table of strangers but a few glasses later and it was fine. The views on the Danube were brilliant and the servings of wine were very generous - eat first! Great trip though and lovely way to spend an evening.
The view is gorgeous from the ship, it is a good amount of wine, and they also have appetizers for purchase. There is also a band playing during the service.
Great value for money and a wonderful cruise along the Danube as it became dark and the buildings lit up along the way. We tasted 7 different lovely hungarian wines although it did feel as if we were forgotten a little as all the attention was given to the dinner guests around the sides. It would have been nice to be given a glass of fizz as you boarded like the other guests, even if this meant one less glass at the tasting! You were given a sheet of paper with info on the wines but you didn't learn too much about each one. You are given the opportunity to buy food or bottles of wines if you wanted.
This tour is fun. We took both the combination dinner and wine cruise which was better because you could be outdoors on the deck. This ship is mostly indoors. Nice wines and good service.
a very good wine tasting cruise, where you get to try 7 diffrent wines, all from hungary,
the server tells you a little about each wine.
after you have a chance to buy any off the wines you have tried.
well worth the money and a good way to spend a hour
if you like wine and wine tasting , then this is a good cruise to do
Our trip was really fun once we were on the boat. The meeting point beforehand was a little hectic but they were trying to get three boats full of people on at the same time. The wine was actually better than expected. The one thing is we were supposed to get scones with the wine but instead they had long crackers to split with everyone. The music was great onboard with three people playing classical music and they were accepting requests as well. Overall it was a good experience.
Really enjoyed Budapest river cruise at night. And wine only enhances that! We had a wonderful cruise and were sitting with a Mom and daughter from Sweden. It was definitely worth the money.
really enjoyed being able to head up on deck to see the sights in between tastings. Liked being offered an a la carte menu for snacking. Our hostess was very sweet and helpful plus there was the printed card of the wine's information
You get a decent glass full for each of the seven wines you taste. The music in the background is nice and cruising along the Danube is very beautiful. Great value for the money!

Very pleasant way to spend an evening, discovered some lovely wines too. The boat was large and the majority of passengers were on the dinner inclusive cruise but we were happier to do the wine tasting and have dinner later in a local restaurant. The scenery of Budapest by night is spectacular.
Could have been a bit more informative over the tasting of the wine. But all said the wines were excellent. Trip was too short to taste all 7 wines, we only got to taste 6.

This was a very relaxing tour. My only complaint is that it's done with the dinner cruise they do and there's no separation of the two. There were like 3 tables of people that did the wine tour in the middle of the dinner cruise people, so that could have been done better. Other than that it was a nice cruise. The staff was helpful and the views are amazing. It's a great way to see everything along the river.
My initial read of the tour seemed to indicate that we got both the 7 wines *and *
the sampling of the Tokaj. Apparently it is one or the other. A number of other people also thought we got both. Perhaps you can make it clearer in the description.
The wines from Szajki were OK, but I have had better Hungarian wines. On the other hand, the price for all the wine and the fantastic boat tour is very reasonable. An enjoyable afternoon experience.
