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 while sipping on a complimentary welcome drink (a glass of Prosecco/sparkling wine, 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, including the National Parliament, Buda Castle, and the recently restored Várkert Bazár. 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. While there are no audio or live guides on the boat, it functions as a floating coffee house or pub with its own bar.

I didn't have a guide for this tour. however, if you are just interested in the sight seeing of the wonderful iconic buildings, this is a definite yes. Please opt for late night cruises after 8.30 pm to enjoy the night life. we were welcomed with a sparkling wine drink to those who drink or mango juice to those who don't drink.

An absolute must when you come to Budapest. Strongly recommend going in the evening as seeing the Parliament building lit up at night is truly magical- far better than the Instagram pictures. And such value for money with you getting a welcome drink also.

It was a good experience exit it’s money definitely. The only pity part is that it is the latest point, just after entrance 0, which is quite long from the public transportation, so consider youll need to walk ~20 min to reach there. In general, this was a quite good experience and worth trying!
