Lovely river cruise
Dec. 2021 • Couples
Brilliant river cruise, exactly as described. 1 hour, indoor or outdoor seating, heating provided inside. Drink on arrival. Only real improvement would be to potentially let you know what you’re actually looking at when the boat goes past, but google maps helped me with that so no big deal! Would highly recommend this experience, well worth it!

Thank you. As you noted the boat tour is non-guided, as per its description, it is rather a floating coffee house/pub experience than a touristic hop on/hop off bus.

Freezingly astonishing lack of thoughtfulness
Heaters were broken, it was very cold inside. On top of that barista said their coffee machine is broken so they can’t make any warm drinks (not even tea). Oh yeah, and the drink included in the price is cold.

Unfortunately technical problems might occur and that included the heating for a time, sorry about that. Still, the boat was much warmer than the surrounding, so you were not sitting outside in a wind.

Amazing
It was an spectacular experience and it’s definitely a must do. You have the choice of sitting inside or outside. There are drinks offered upon arrival but I didn’t have one so I can’t comment. The areas inside is very nice, warm and pleasant with a lot of seats and tables near the windows. I’d you are going for an outdoor sitting area make sure you wrap up warm (hat, gloves and proper long jacket) as it can be quite cold.
The staff are polite and welcomed us on board.

Mohammad there is nothing wrong with our staff, far more with your and your friends' attitude. YOU HAVE MISSED THE CRUISE, the boat was leaving with the gate closed when you arrived running late. Though it is FORBIDDEN to step on the pontoon when the boat is arriving or leaving for SAFETY REASONS you forced the gate open and wanted to step on the boat. The pontoon is a private property, therefore you were trespassing when entered without permission. As this is not allowed our staff did not allow that, I need to add that you are lucky that they did not call the police for your trespassing or press charges for the damages. Leaving such a review when you did not experience the cruise is also a mirror of your attitude.

Night cruise in Winter
Nov. 2021 • Friends
There’s good view and tasty wine.
It’s really beautiful for the Hungarian Parliament. I would recommend to choose a warmer time eg 5/6pm since 740pm is a bit cold and I could sit outside in winter time

Thanks, as you may understand the weather is beyond our or anybody's control, still we offer blankets to keep you warm. Also, the boat is heated when you are cold outside. It is really up to you where you want to stay, inside or outside, you can even change places.

Jean, some more honesty would help the world rolling. Should the guide service be important for you you could have gone for a tour that offers such. No, despite that you went for one that has no guide - clearly indicated with some large friendly letters - everything was fine (actually not just fine, PERFECT as you say) - apart from the service you haven't paid for - and therefore simply provide a mediocre rating. Some massive contradiction, but no worries. Guess you also expect first class service with a low cost carrier.
