Full description
Hop on the evening cruise and discover the gorgeous Hungarian capital while sipping your favourite drink. Cruise under all 6 of the main bridges of Budapest, and explore many historically and culturally important sites. The unforgettable atmosphere will be guaranteed by live salon music performed by three musicians from the Hungaria Folk ensemble. Often cited as one of Europe's most beautiful cities, Budapest is even more stunning from the river. The Buda side is made of a string of World Heritage sites stretching from the Chain Bridge to the Technical University, and includes the Gellért Bath, Mt. Gellért with its Freedom Monument and the Citadella, the Buda Castle and the Fisherman’s Bastion. On the opposite side of the river, you can marvel at iconic buildings such as the House of Parliament and the St. Stephen’s Basilica. You’ll have plenty of time to enjoy drinks in the air-conditioned cabin and then head to the open-air upper deck to admire the panorama of Budapest by night. The performance also features a marvelous original Hungarian instrument, the famous “cimbalom”. The combination of string instruments and the cimbalom provides a uniquely Hungarian, unforgettable harmony and an outstanding atmosphere on-board. Wish to hear your favorite popular song in a whole new adaptation? During the performance, guests will have a chance to request their favorite songs.

The staffs and the ride were very nice. The view in the night was excellent and the live music was really good. The wines that were offered were good but nothing special, most of them you can find in the supermarkets. I was expecting to get at least one normal glass of wine instead of a small glass of wine. But in the end the ride really worth the money. The staff, the live music, and the the view made the difference.

one of the best river cruise ever. Everything was amazing: the boat, the service, the staff, the music. Really nice option, so, if you do not buy the buffet option, one can always buy food on boar that is delicious and very cheap. Also drinks are super cheap. It was my second time here, and always good.

We booked this event on line for my birthday. We were pleased we booked it before we travelled, it worked perfectly. We had a lovely evening, the beers were nice and we had a bottle of fizz. The music was great and the guys came round asking for requests. Would highly recommend this evening. The sights along the river at night are fantastic.
