Full description

Discover Budapest on a sightseeing cruise along the River Danube. Relax as you pass by some of the city's most notable landmarks as you sip on a complimentary welcome drink (a glass of prosecco, a seasonal welcome drink, or a soft drink).

Climb aboard the pleasure boat at the pier of Budapest's Szent István Park and receive your welcome beverage. Then, cruise down the River Danube, and pass monuments such as the National Parliament, Buda Castle, and the Várkert Bazár, recently restored to its original splendor. Head to the open deck for perfect views of the illuminated Vigadó Concert Hall, or look at the floodlit monuments between the Margaret Bridge and Rákóczi Bridge from the comfort of an air-conditioned deck with panoramic windows. Experience the city more like a local - although there are no audio or live guides on board the boat, it functions as a floating coffee house or pub experience with its own bar

A short trip through the Danube with jazz music. You can see the Parliament, The Gellert Hill and the Royal Palace. We went on the first available tour so it was too early to see the Parliament with the lights on but it still looks beautiful either way. It doesn’t matter at which side of the boat you sit you’ll see enough since the boat is turning. Overall it was a great and romantic experience. Thank you!

Boat trip was great! it was easy to locate, just follow your google maps it will lead u there, but u can also find all information here on get your guide app/website. Boat trip itself was great, they welcome us with a drink, u can choose alcohol or non alcohol. Views were awesome especially with the effect of lights! Just a bit pity, no audio guide, i mean it would be nicer if they have a recorded guide, and play using a speaker so everybody can just listen while enjoying the trip so everyone knows whats that building, and so on even just a short information. Be there on time, we were there 30 mins before, so we could have a nice place infront. Budapest is a touristic area so expect a lot of tourist will do this boat trip. In general its a nice experience, evening boat trip is a must to do when u visit Budapest. I bought my ticket here and its worth! hope my reviews helps, book yours now! and Have fun ❤️

I would definitely recommend this! The journey lasts an hour and you have the option to sit inside (great in the winter, as they have heating) or outside, which is perfect for pictures and have also a nice seating area. The welcome you with a glass of prosecco or a mocktail, I chose the non-alcoholic drink and it was really nice. The boat has free wi-fi, and you can order more drinks from the bar if you want.
