Perfect way to see the city lit up from the river at night. Glass of champagne was a nice touch and the boat offered something for everyone. Music on one level, rooftop views on another and guided audio on the mid-level deck. Perhaps a half hour too long but overall--one of my favorite parts of my trip to Budapest.
Sunset cruise with cocktail

Beautiful cruise - 90 minutes well worth it - many different cruises offered it was supposed to be a sunset cruise but we left after sun went down - with cocktail offer - 2 cocktails or 3 beers -
Old ship with cheap drinks

The sightseeing scene is without a doubt beautiful, BUT if you're walking through the city at night save the money for this tour. They offer super cheap drinks and the deck space is not enough for all the people on board.
what a beautiful night

taking the sunset cruise was one of the highlights of our short trip to budapest. we didn't do the dinner, just the drinks, but i think next time we'll add in the dinner. unfortunately for us it rained so hard to get great pix because couldn't be outside. but seeing the lights of budapest while listening to the music played by the 3 piece band made for an enchanting night.

Excellent and relaxing! While Budapest offers much amazing scenery, the views from the river can't be beat!! The cocktail service was a little slow, and our cruise wasn't full, so I'd imagine that could be a problem on a busy day. But we were pleased with everything about the cruise - the length of time, the friendly wait staff, the strings trio, and of course the gorgeous views of Budapest from the middle of the Danube. I'd consider this cruise again if I returned to Budapest.

Cool night, but the trip was a great way to see the sights. Drinks were good, but staff seemed enthralled with a large Bachelorette party. They got all the service. Hard to find wait staff for drinks. Good value, though.
