    I highly recommend this tour. This boat tour was a great introduction to Budapest. We enjoyed the audio guide that was provided on the headsets -- it was entertaining and informative. One could easily just skip the audio guide and have a peaceful ride. We started out on the open air top deck, but it started to rain. No worries, there was plenty of room on the covered first level area of the boat with just as good of a view. The welcome drinks were nice, too.

    A great sightseeing experience. Will recommend seating on the upper floor in the middle, near the open windows. As promised, 2 drinks were served: 1 of your choice from their list, and the 2nd one a lemonade. The only downside is the audio guide. Some were not working at all and the information was not interesting. If chosen again, maybe would choose the cheaper option in the app.

    Very good experience. the audio guides in French are very appreciable. Suggestion: from a COVID point of view there could be distribution of simple personal headphones rather than reusing those of previous travelers) it is recommended to come at least 30 to 50min before. Without crowds, the waiting time is a bit long. Suggestion: It would be necessary to set up a true manage-file because the last arrived which go up in 1st it is average. especially if you want seats on the upper deck. The subject of the stopover was not very understandable, especially with the last cruise. The drinks offered are very nice. finally the announced time of 70min was in fact only 60 short minutes maximum…. therefore to be vigilant.
