A bit awkward at first, as you first have to exchange the voucher for tickets in the office in the city, then you go to the boat with a guide and then crowd around the next boat with a hundred other guests. The table is then assigned to you. The explanations in English via loudspeakers are also difficult to understand, since it is quite noisy inside due to the bar operation etc. Nevertheless it is a very good offer for the price, you can see a lot of the city, the journey takes 90 minutes, the drink prices on board are ok and there is space at the round tables, the toilets were also ok. You could also go to the outside deck at any time to take photos.

The cruise itself was fine and it went past all the main sites of Budapest and was great for taking photos. The boat seemed a bit cramped upstairs with not many seats though and some of the passengers from India on our cruise were on video calls the whole time talking loudly which spoilt the atmosphere of the cruise.

Easy to find meeting point through the app. Outside the building there is a sign indicating the meeting point. I went in and they gave me tickets for the tour. At 3.30 pm our guide arrives and accompanies us to the pier for departure. A beautiful 1 and a half hour tour that reaches the last bridge. Suggestive is to see that from the light of day, the buildings and bridges around 4.30 pm begin to light up giving a breathtaking sight. The speaker explains only in English. There is bar service available. I highly recommend booking this visit which has excellent value for money. With other tours I would have spent 20 euros per person. Thanks Get your Guide
