Budapest is a city that takes on a completely different take at night, and a cruise like this is the only way to see that. One could pay attention to the commentary or just take in the sights. It was a great thing to do.

I booked this in advance and turned up to find I was the only person on the tour that evening. BONUS! So I had a personal guide in Anita. She tailored the tour specifically to me and my interests (Communism, Holocaust, Occupation) as well as showing me some of the places I should revist later in the week. I'm sure if there were similar interests in any group she would add in the extra bits. She also took note that this was my second tour of the city, having been on a bus tour earlier in the day that took in many of the main attractions in the city - this was to be a more personal tour.
Anita showed me the places that don't always feature in the guide books - a cafe, situated in a book store but occupying a Baroque Ball Room that I would recommend to anyone who visits the city. She had her own stories and was happy to discuss the recent Internet Tax Protest. We stopped at various points that I hadn't known about and explained their significance and history, including monuments, statues, memorials and people/figures from Hungarian History.
The city looks totally different at night and gives some significance to different memorials and this was to be my favourite evening in Budapest.
