Beautiful but not educational

It was absolutely beautiful! There was no audio guide or explanation of what you are seeing. Definitely pretty but not educational!

Thanks for the review. The fact that the tour is not guided is written already in the product description. Still, you are expecting that which is weird, therefore this statement is rather a fact than opinion of the experience you had.

Oct 2021 • Couples
Not recommended. There are better activities to do in Budapest and the service was not good.

There are boat trips every hour and we wanted to go one hour earlier. They did not answer any call to make changes in the reservation. When we arrived, there were lots of empty seats but they wanted us to pay 5e per person to change the time (more than half the original price, which was 9e)..

I am sorry about your experiences. For the facts: 1) we do not have boat trips every hour, 2) you had a voucher for a specific time and still you decided to take the cruise another time. This is called as last minute change, that has a fee - you are not forced to pay that, also not forced to join the cruise at another time than the original. Also, I am sure that you were informed abouth the fee before paying that and you made the decision to accept it. The same way you are not forced to modify your flight ticket, there are empty seats as well, whne they allow you to do so. All the details of your boat cruise is on the voucher, besides that you can get to the port via one click on all major map applications, you have a Telegram chatbot, etc. calling our customer line does not add extra value. Also, there are parallel callers sometimes.

Beautiful city
Sep 2021 • Couples
Worth $10 but not more. Loud club music plays while you travel the river. I'm not sure why it's in English- the only words you hear are welcome and goodbye. The city is beautiful but don't expect any information or pleasantry. It's $10 to ride a boat.

Hi, as you noted the cruise is non-guided, this is a setting enforced by Tripadvisor/Viator. I am sorry about the loud music, never heard that before.

Beauty of Budapest from Danube
Sep 2021 • Family
Seeing the House of Parliament all lit up from the river was just amazing, also the castle, fisherman’s bastion and other beautiful buildings. Being greeted with a glass of Prosecco as we boarded was such a lovely, unexpected treat. Would highly recommend this trip especially at night to get the full effects.

The city center itself is not defined and it is a rather large area, while our location is exactly specified. Naturally you can walk direct, take detours, but also you are free to use the public transportation or the shared devices like rollers, scooters, cars or even taxis.

Fine experience with welcome drink, but no guide
It was a fine experience, but their is no guide or explanation about what you see during the cruise. The price/quality is great and you also get a welcome drink.

As the product description already clearly indicates, it is a non guided tour. To keep the excellent price/quality ratio you also mention.

Romance and tradition on the Danube
We took a night cruise with diner and music and it was wonderful. Budapest is sooo romantic by night and really, we were impressed with the good quality food and drinks for a very reasonable price!
