I highly recommend going at the end of or after sunset, the city is all lit up at night and the views were beautiful. Excellent champagne offered as the free drink and the audio guide gave interesting historical details, though many of them didn’t work. You can see the landmarks from anywhere on the boat, though I would recommend arriving a bit early to get a seat beside the window/railing if you want no one in between you and the view. Great value for money

The boat trip was a favourite experience of ours whilst in Budapest and ie oils definitely recommend. We went on the 21:30 tour as we wanted to see the city lights of an evening- it did not disappoint.
The boat tour company seemed very organised and it was a stress free, simple experience booking / finding the dock and boarding.
The headphones were a bit dodgy but I just swapped them out for another pair.

Highly recommend if you’re visiting Budapest.

For the most part, the sunset river cruise with Legenda was good. The cruise itself was perfectly fine, with an audio guide and interesting commentary about the city, the architecture, etc., complimentary drinks (beer, wine, and juice), and pleasant onboard staff.

I suppose the only irritating aspect wasn't really about Legenda itself but rather the other sightseers. I know by now that people are rude and inconsiderate everywhere in the world, in all situations, and I really shouldn't continue to be surprised by this. But people, if we're passing by, say, the Parliament Building, and you didn't arrive onboard early enough to get a "good" seat, it's quite rude to stand in front of those people seated in the good seats (I'm talking the outside seats) to take photos--and stay there basically the whole time the ferry passes by the building. Anyway, not on Legenda, but maybe they can have a "stay in your own darn seat" policy :)

Well..at first we arrived and thought wow..what a great experience.
We took the 2.5 ours cruise with romantic dinner that cost us 65 euros! (With only one welcome drink..got to pay if you want more drinks)
The sights we saw a long the cruise were pretty poor since the boat goes back and forth all the time just to let you “enjoy” the terrible food in the meantime! The only beautiful sight we came across is the parliament building which looks beautiful at night but that you can watch also from land.
First dish was very small! The soup was cold and tasted terrible! The main dish was poor as well. The desert was the only nice thing to eat there.
Not worth the money nor the food!
We finished the cruise and went to eat in a restaurant.
Felt like a tourist trap that we fall into.

This was the first thing we did when we got to the city! What a fun way to see the city for the first time. We took the night cruise and it was absolutely gorgeous. The view of the city lit up at night is gorgeous - the city gleams golden and seeing it across the water is spectactular!

We stayed outside even though it was cold. The audio guides are tied down to the seats; the headphones are quite worn out. This doesn't make it easy to listen to the commentary if you want to get up and take pictures while listening to the commentary. They serve two drinks during the cruise. The quality of the boat itself is average but the cruise is magical, simply by virtue of being on the Danube.

This tour delivered as promised, the only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the audio equipment with commentary is in very poor condition. My seat didn't have any headphones so my husband found a set on an empty seat. Even so, I had to physically hold the headphone jack into the speaker for the entire time. My husband had the same issue.
Other than that, it was just the right length and the complementary beverages were a nice plus.

Brilliant trip down the Danube. Budapest looks absolutely amazing by night and I would recommend this tour to anybody that’s visiting the city. The Audio for the tour was brilliant and we came away having learnt a lot about Budapest and it’s history.

Loved this boat cruise, very comfortable, clean and warm. Video and narrative really informative would highly recommend, well worth paying a bit more. Staff were nice and complimentary drink was a nice touch.

Other than the wasted time caused by the misinformation about departure time, it was a great trip managed well by this cruiseline. Our ship was modern and clean, the video and narration well-done, and the crew warm and efficient enough. And, even were none of that true, it's something one must do in Budapest. We've traveled the world for decades but agree that nothing compares with the beauty of the sites of this city at night from the river perpective. So, reserve your spot, call to check the departure time on the day of your trip, and enjoy the view.

After reading reviews online decided on this company even though it was a long walk from the parliament building, right at the opposite end of the Danube, that will teach me to check before! We went to reserve tickets for later in the evening as I’d read that the evening cruises can be very popular. We came back about 30 minutes before our cruise time hoping we could sit somewhere as we were getting tired and the temperature was dropping a bit. Unfortunately, all of the seating in the waiting area was already taken so we had to wait around outside until the boat was ready to board. The boarding process was very easy, just scanning of tickets and straight onto the boat. You can sit wherever you like and each place has a set of headphones and a controller for your chosen language. There are small tv screens displaying images that accompany the audio guide too. There was a general introduction given by the staff in loads of languages, we were totally amazed by one girl who seemed to switch from one language to another with ease and knew about 10+ languages! As this was an evening cruise once the boat got moving staff came round asking what drink you would like as it was included. We found the audio commentary was really informative without going into too much detail, the buildings were lit up amazingly well and the whole experience was generally fantastic. For us, it was one of the highlights of our honeymoon in Budapest!
