The concert was exceptional and included the symphony, Hungarian dancers from the Hungarian ballet and marvelous opera singers. A guide took us on a 5 minute walk to the boat. The food was delicious best I have ever eaten on a siteseeing cruise and the views from the tables were marvelous. The only caution I give is that there was only a small open deck on top of the boat to take pictures and was filled with smokers so if you want to take pictures at night, this is not the right cruise. Enjoy!
Very good value for money and a lovely experience.
An amazing experience! The concert was superb and the river boat cruise was excellent- lovely food, music and beautiful views. Would highly recommend.
I am not great culture vulture but thought that whilst in Hungary it would be the correct place to listen to a symphony orchestra and I can honestly say I am pleased I did. I booked a package via Viator which encompassed the orchestra concert followed by a late night dinner cruise on the Danube.
The Danube Palace has such ornate decor in the auditorium, it is mind blowing really. The Orchestra played for an hour and a half with a fifteen minute break. Their music was amazing and interspersed with a little bit of humour from the conductor.
Following the concert we waited in the lobby to be escorted for the ten minute walk to the boat. What a magical experience that was, to travel down the Danube with all the major buildings and bridges lit up and looking so majestic and beautiful. The food on board was plentiful and varied, with hot meat dishes, soups, salads and desserts, there was so much no one needed to worry about getting fed. Wines are offered on board at additional cost you receive a glass of bubbles on arrival and small bottles of water on your table gratis, they also come round after the meal with local liqueurs to tempt you at further cost. The boat ride is only an hour and a half and they are keen to get you of the boat at the end. However this whole evening really was a magical experience that wasn't even marred by our subsequent 3km walk home due to the chain bridge being closed!!
Only did the concert which was very good. A wide selection of music and a great orchestra.
This was indeed a surprise the venue was very good and the concert was superbe would highly recommend it.
