I hesitated to book any cruise as was not clear if the boats have a covered inside that is warm for winter. So I did book anyway, it was truly worth it. The bottom of boat is covered and warm and the top has a roof but open. You get a complementary champagne at the beginning and can buy more drinks or snacks if you want. The explanations of the sights is nice, clear and helpful. Above all , budapest has the most amazing river sightseeing places I have ever seen.. other than in Bangkok! Its a must tour, then in took 1 hour that traveling with kids it’s sufficient

Booked this 1 hour river cruise on line and the whole process was very straightforward. At £12-50 per person i felt it was good value for money. Got an E-mail reminder the day before the trip as well giving the full details of meet point and how to get there. Free glass of sparkling wine as you get on and blankets to keep you warm provided as part of the deal. (You will need them in December). Informative recorded information as you cruised past the many places of interest. Only criticism, which is very minor, was the recorded voice was a little bit wearing on the ears, (probably just me) But otherwise would recommend this trip.

Very informative trip, and we were running late to arrive for the cruise - the crew waited for us to arrive and assured us that they wouldn’t have left without us, which we were very pleasantly surprised about. Would 100% recommend to anyone visiting Budapest, a fantastic way to appreciate the beautiful buildings and history that the city has to offer.
