Nice ride on beautiful Danube. But too short.

Took two rides - evening from 20 (perfect dawn time) and one from 13:30. What's a pitty: evening ship was small, short ride times, tourist prices at bar. Evening ship was really small with sitting on benches like in a bus. So if You wasn't so quick to got place right at "window" You'll see less. This is quite opposite to day ship which was perfectly ok. It is announced as one hour ride. In reality, one hour is time between rides. You have to subtract boarding time and time to get out. In result the ride is about 40 minutes (guess). During day You also subtract Margaret's Island stop. Problem is not the difference between what I payed and what I get, but especially evening You ends up with feeling "fine, but it should be slower...". If there is the option, 90min could be much better. Btw: one bottle of cider cost 1200HUF, in a shop it cost about 350HUF. Again, no problem with pricey local cocktail but small bottle I can buy everywhere...

Evening cruise, well attended, mix of passengers, reasonable value.

Winter tours probably atypical, but my first scheduled afternoon cruise did not take place as I was the only passenger! Pretty full however for the next, evening, event and proved value for money. NO safety briefing on life-jackets / floats / emergency stations. Boat was OK, but had clearly seen better days. Both (free) drinks served at same time early in one-hour cruise as 'bar is only open for first 20 mins' ! ? Comprehensive commentary, albeit disrupted by talkative groups nearby

I would like to highly suggest this! A great value for your money.

I booked tickets just 1 day before, and the process was really smooth. During the ferry trip, we took 2 times trip, as for the first time we did not get nice positions. In the 2nd time, we were sitting in the first row to enjoy a great view! I would highly suggest you enjoy night view when the city full of lights. Unfortunately, we booked a ferry trip in Prague as well, the experience was worse than this. I would say this trip really worth 5 out of 5, as it's 24 hours ticket

Great value (only £15.00 for 2 adults for an hour cruise).

Booked on the day online for only £15 for 2 adults. Printed off paper ticket at our hotel. Was a lovely hour long cruise along the River. So glad we did a night cruise as all the buildings were lit up and looked stunning.

Comfortable, enjoyable cruise with drinks

The boat was very comfortable, service was excellent and the cruise was very enjoyable. Audio guide attached to the seats gave good information about the city. Received two drinks - the lemon tea was especially great.
