Très intéressante petite croisière sur le Danube qui nous a permis d'en apprendre un peu plus sur cette très belle ville de Budapest

Bokade båtturen på Donau via nätet där de lovade audioguide på flera språk bl a svenska samt fri drink i priset. När vi anlände var det ganska ovälkommet mottagande. Ingen audioguide fanns på svenska så använde engelska, bristfällig uppkoppling så missade en hel del info. När vi skulle hämta vår "fria" drink fick vi veta att det inte gäller nu utan det var förra året:-(. Känner mig lurad på denna upplevelse.

I highly recommend this tour. This boat tour was a great introduction to Budapest. We enjoyed the audio guide that was provided on the headsets -- it was entertaining and informative. One could easily just skip the audio guide and have a peaceful ride. We started out on the open air top deck, but it started to rain. No worries, there was plenty of room on the covered first level area of the boat with just as good of a view. The welcome drinks were nice, too.
