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 (alcoholic or non-alcoholic).

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

Cruise was very enjoyable, and reasonably priced, the river is really pretty especially at night. Only criticism would be there is no queue system in place, it’s a total free for all as soon people are allowed onboard. We arrived early but boarded the cruise last as we weren’t prepared to push in, there’s not enough seats for everyone outside and extremely warm inside at this time of year.

We found the meeting point without any problems, everything was on time, the welcome drink served in glass, not in plastic, so it's a plus, the cruise itself is very pleasant, the lights are turned off, the music is playing, it does not last long but it is a very good option to see beautiful Budapest illuminated at night . I believe that such a trip is worth taking.

Overall it was a good activity. The ride is smooth and with a great staff and views. The only thing they should work on is that the company that's giving the service should do something regarding the waiting line. It was a chaos to enter the boat and the people that arrives early to grab a good seat gets runned by all other people piling up in the entrance.
