“Good way to go to Vienna”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Visiting Bratislava you may want to take the boat to Vienna for a day. The hydrofoil takes around 90 minutes each way. This Russian boat is good, but a bit noisy and does not offer much of a view when you go along (you sit quite low in the boat). There is a small shop on the boat, but the choice is quite limited, but cheap.
It is suggested you buy ticket beforehand as the number of seats are limited. Alternatively you can take the train to Vienna. That will probably save you 30 minutes each way.

“Fun and easy trip to Bratislava”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We took the hydrofoil to and from Vienna and Bratislava. The boat was on time and immaculate. We spent a day in Bratislava without wasting time on buses or trains. No need to make reservations. Make sure you take your passport.

“Don't listen to people who tell you to take the train- this is better!”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

As long as you are not in a huge rush, this is an amazing way to get between the two cities. I had read some reviews on here saying take the train, really pleased I didn't listen. We took the train on the way back and while it was 5 euros cheaper, it's just a train and in terms of pick up and drop off it isn't as convenient.

The view from the ship was amazing- the best bits being the view of Bratislava castle, of Devin castle, and my favourite bit of all, along the canal in Vienna with cute little fishing houses on both sides. It would have made a special pleasure trip, let alone a convenient way to get between two countries, have never experienced anything like it anywhere in the world.

“Something different”
Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

We were recommended this trip by our hotel and it was excellent. We caught the 10:30 hydrofoil to Vienna, it only takes 90 minutes and there's plenty to see on the way. Boat was comfortable with bar and toilets, good view from all seats so don't spend extra on reserving the front ones. Had a walk around Vienna and some lunch and caught the 16:30 return boat, back in Bratislava for 18:00.
