This is a family run business. Dominic, Mona and Zsuzsanna were fantastic. We had a very warm welcome and felt at ease with them. They were punctual when picking us up and were delightful people. The canoeing is good fun on the river taking you out into what seems like isolated beauty but is really in the heart of the city. Very bizarre. We were a group of ten. Dominic took us into the water and he was well up for a laugh. I would recommend. An awesome way to spend an afternoon.

Outdoor activities, especially paddling, is a highlight of any trip for me. The first time I was in Budapest, I was lured by the river, but it was winter, and no paddling options were available. It took a return trip during the summer to find Budapest Canoe ... but it was worth the wait! We signed up for a private half-day trip on a Saturday, including transportation to and from our hotel, but the trip was rained out. Budapest Canoe accommodated us by adding us to another group on that Sunday instead. Before the trip, the guides instructed everyone on basic canoe techniques and provided life jackets for everything. During the trip, Mona, our guide, was so personable and knowledgeable, and she seemed happy to share her love of Budapest and Hungary with us -- particularly the amazing Little Danube River on which we paddled. The paddling was not difficult, and the pastries/fruit/veggies and champagne at the midpoint were a nice treat! Booking a trip was easy. Szuszanna was quick with replies and any information we requested, and the prices for the various options were easy to find on the website. The only drawback was that we had to wire money for our deposit in advance, and that cost an extra $45 on the trip; a PayPal or other less expensive option would be helpful for travelers from the U.S. But it was worth it to us to be sure that we were able to book the trip we wanted.

The staff were extremely nice and helpful. The venue was just incredible and the instructors were very informed when it came to information about the city and the river itself. Pictures and videos were taken which serve as great memories. The food they brought along was very good and fresh. The instructors were also patient when the group got tired. Definitely worth the money.
