Wanted to admit a river cruiser and the was a rep for the company selling tickets (9 euro each). Seemed decent so we bought two. The boat was basic, few seats in front with more seating in back. If you sit inside you'll smell the...More

Quite reasonably priced (compared to alternative options) if on a budget & the full day ticket does include a hop on hop off service. We just went on the evening 7pm tour - recorded commentary was quite interesting, but the boat went faster than the...More

Dear Dennis P, Thank You for Your review. We are glad that You liked our tour. The audio guide system is always a problematic issue. For someone ( who is interested in the sights) it is quiet, for someone (who just want to cruise along)...More

Great offer you get an hop and off boat, for one or two days. The ideal to let you closer toseveral points of interest, and you got also a cruise in Budapeste Danube during the day and nigth (at nigth no hop on hop off).

We travelled with two young babies. Its hard to find info online about whether tours are suitable for babies / buggies etc. This was around an hour. Up and down the river. Steep walkway onto boat but managable. Staff on board very friendly and helpful.More

Dear Sarellard, Thank You for Your review! Unfortunately the low water level made our bridge very steep, usually, we are easily accessible, but since it depends on the Danube, we can not state it. But we try to give more info at the next update...More
