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.

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.

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.

Thank you, I am happy that you enjoyed the ride. Budapest is always beautiful, the private boat tour gives a bit of a different angle to it.
