This was really disappointing considering Istanbul... Boat was good but there was no explanation by staff which resulted in mix up of buffet... Definitely not worth to spend 2 hrs

Buda is gooda but pest is the best

The only reason this did not get all 5 stars is that we only received 2 courses (dinner and dessert) instead of the advertised 3 unless you count the additional drink course that you need to pay extra for. Still, I felt it was a better deal than the buffet option other travelers chose. The cruise was comfortable, the staff friendly, the food good, and the views wonderful.

Driver good. Guide knowledgeable but could be more polite. Forcing me to write more is not very nice. No cruise for us but price is still the same.
