    Went on this cruise today. Had pre booked my ticket. Went along to the pier and we were allowed to board about ten minutes before hand. I recommend getting there earlier than they say, so you can get the front seats of the boat! Headphones provided, select the language and you have a very informative narration about how Buda and Pest became one. Hot drink offered at the start of cruise, then champagne or soft drink towards the end.
    Boat clean and staff pleasant. Lasts just over an hour. If you're going in the winter, wrap up because even though you're inside, it's still cold.

    Very good tour with a friendly, knowledgeable guide, Dahlia.
    Dahlia started our tour by asking what we might like to focus on -- history, architecture, arts -- then tailored her tour to include those things. It was very windy and cold when we toured (late December), so even warm rest stops were included! The tour was peppered with local lore as well as personal reflections and provided an excellent introduction to Buda and Pest!

    Our guide Andrea was a dream! Very knowledgeable and great attitude! Truly recommend this tour. You will get a quick view of the top spots so you can return later to explore in more detail.

    We booked a half day tour through our hotel to see as much as Budapest as we could.

    The driver, Zoli and the tour guide, Kristy were absolutely amazing and extremely informative. The passion that both of them have for the city made it all the more interesting. Kristy was well informed of all the areas and the great history of Budapest and we would recommend requesting them for your next sightseeing tour.

    Kristy spoke very good English as well and provided options of places where we wanted to see and the tour was very flexible and personal.

    Thank you so much for the best tour ever!

    Loved the way they share their frank experiences. It was bit rushed to move on quickly. Rather than that it's good.

    When I booked this tour I was expecting an open top bus tour but instead we were taken around in a mini- bus! A mini-bus is not the best way to see a city. Also, it was advertised as air conditioned but instead the driver just opened the windows!

    The guide was fairly good.

    We had also booked a river cruise as part of this package, but because of a road closure we were not taken to the dock to meet the boat but instead back to the pick-up point which meant we missed the 5:30 pm boat that we were supposed to catch. The next boat was not until 7pm which would have meant a lot of waiting around and a late finish to the day, so we did not have a river cruise which we had paid for and were not offered a refund.

    We took this early dinner cruise on 3rd December instead of a later dinner cruise has already been overbooked for the coming days we learned. Though it was winter the sights of the city - already lit up - were clearly visible from inside the boat as it has huge, I repeat HUGE windows. The food was really good and it was funny that they had no printed menu instead we scanned a QR to read it on our mobile. It was maybe a bit to early (4:45pm) for a dinner but we enjoyed every minute of it.

    We participated in the Jewish Heritage wAlking tour with Benjamin as our guide. Loved every minute! Benjamin provided us with a ton of information. He is so knowledgeable and personable, it was as if a family member was leading us around. Highly recommend this tour and Benjamin.

    I booked a private tour for my party of 8 girls to get the full tour experience. We had the luxury of a private minibus and being hosted for the day by our wonderful guide Susan who I had requested.

    We could not have hoped for a more knowledgeable person who helped us uncover the long, interesting and detailed history of Budapest and Hungary.

    We would absolutely recommend this as a good value option and highly professional. Any short city break needs a good tour to maximise time and help you to get to know the city fast, and this was a perfect solution for us.

    The lunch was also great. If we could have had the boat tour in the dark that would have added to the experience but starting at 9.30 as we had wished to meant it was in daylight. Maybe if you have the chance start a bit later.

    Good idea to do at the start of your break so you can familiarise yourself with the city and then revisit as needed anywhere you’d like to see again.

    Thank you Susan for being patient, taking loads of photos for us and keeping us on track all day. It was our pleasure to get to know you and your beautiful city. 😘🙏

    Our first time in Budapest and we are so glad we booked a private tour with this guide. He met us at our hotel and drove us around to the most popular sites and main attractions on both the Buda and Pest sides. His vehicle was clean and perfect for touring as it has an oversized double sunroof and sliding back doors for easy entry and exit. He's a great driver and extremely knowledgeable about the history of the city and passionate about sharing it with you. Very professional and pleasant man. He was able to cover an immense amount of ground in 4 hours. Since this was our last stop on a 10-day european tour where we did all walking tours, this driving tour was great! Also, we didnt have to deal with the nuances of being in a group tour which means we were able to cover much more ground than usual. Hands down would book again. Do yourself a favor and dont miss this. The BEST!!

    Getting the tour to the Parliament was an unexpected treat for the short time we were in Budapest. When making the selection for the city tour and Parliament it was stated on the form the tour was to be in English. For the Parliament tour it was in English. For the city tour it unfortunately not the best. Going back between (I believe) 2 or 3 languages which was not stated when I made the reservation, made it more than a challenge determining what she talking about to the area we were in. It was never stated there would be hundreds of steps to do for the Fisherman's Bastion, thus my wife could not do that part of the tour and stay on the bus. The highlight was the Parliament tour in the language specified on the advertisement.

    Aresh was our guide. He led us around on our Segway’s to see all the great / must see sights of Budapest. Arash was very friendly, responsive, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him as a guide. Five stars for Arash!
