The cruise was nice. It was an hour and you went up the Danube passing all the main sites. the boat did a loop and turned around and passed by on the other side. It was no frills but you were able to see the Parliament building and the Castle On the hill. There was a bar where you could purchase drinks. All in all for the price, a pleasant cruise.

It was nice to see Budapest from the boat and during the evening time, with all the lights. All my family enjoyed that. The possibility of small refreshment on the boat was fine (bufet), but it is not on all selected boats. 1 hour ride was sufficient in cold October weather.

Excellent trip on the Danube, boat was very clean and modern, staff were helpful and informative, the trip lasted 1hr and 10 mins, sailed past the parliament building which was all lit up, went as far Margrit Island and back down past Buda castle again all lit up. This was our 2nd time in Budapest and this is definitely the best way to see the best sites, and they are very spectacular when viewed from the river at night. I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Budapest for the first time.
