“Recommended Experience”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Montevideo, Uruguay on December 24th, 2012
Great way to start our Christmas Eve. We enjoyed the cruise, the food and the live music. The cruise gives you great views over the highlights of Budapest, which you cannot get from anywhere else; we specially liked the Parliament building. I suggest getting to the meeting point 10 minutes before the given time to avoid the big queue. The only thing I would have liked to get is one more drink included in the price. Overall a great evening, very recommended.
