Budapest: City Highlights Cruise with Welcome Drink

1. Budapest: City Highlights Cruise with Welcome Drink

Discover Budapest on a romantic sightseeing cruise along the River Danube. See the old buildings - depending on the time day - lit up and get the best views while sipping a complimentary glass of welcome drink (alcoholic/non-alcoholic). Climb aboard the boat at the pier at Dock 42 port next to Budapest's Szent István Park and receive your welcome drink upon arrival. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride as you cruise along the calm Danube River. See the stunning city of Budapest from a whole new perspective and admire the skyline. Sail down the river and marvel at passing monuments such as the National Parliament, Buda Castle, and the recently restored Várkert Bazár.

Naturally, you are free to change places at any time. (As Budapest uses the illumination to commemorate certain events(, like Earth Hour, Fight Against Breast Cancer, national events, etc.) therefore they might appear in different colours or can be dimmed at certain times.) The tour is not guided, experience the city more like a local - the boat functions as a floating coffee house or pub experience with its own bar available during the cruise. Feeling thirsty? No worries, treat yourself to another drink from the pub onboard or have a hot cup of coffee from the coffee house if you like. Finally, end your cruise sailing back to the pier with long-lasting memories and great pictures.

Karen was an absolutely amazing guide! She was passionate and knowledgeable, and calm, despite missing Austrians, noisy children and drone attacks. she is worth her wait in gold and whoever hired her deserves a medal. I work in tourism management, so I've come across many great tour guides and Karen is one of the very best I have ever seen.

Sara and Bodi were amazing guides! They made sure we were all comfortable and having a good time. They were very nice, personable & shared facts about the history of Hungary throughout the tour. I would highly recommend this tour as it is a great way to meet people, have some delicious drinks, and experience the nightlife in Budapest! 🥰
