Full description

Cruise under all 6 of the main bridges of Budapest and explore many historically and culturally important sites on this city cruise. Customize your experience with your favorite drinks by choosing the option that suits you, including wine, beer, cocktails, and soft drinks. The unforgettable atmosphere will be guaranteed by live salon music performed by three musicians from the award-winning Rajkó 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.

I would really suggest people take this tour . Nice place to sit outside and take pictures and enjoy the view. Nice atmosphere inside to enjoy the music and dance by some locals. we paid 14 euro per person for this tour with one free drink n we really enjoyed it. I must recommend it to other

We got there early anf sat outside. We were disappointed once we realized that we weren't going to even hear the music since we sat outside. Inside you can't get the great pictures. If I'm not mistaken you may have to pay extra for a window seat but If you sit outside to get the views you will not get the entertainment!The only time you can hear it is when you go to the bar. So it depends on what you want. If you get the unlimited drinks they are limited to only wine, champagne and beer.

We chose it because it said 120 ', but it lasted at least 20' less. Unfortunately, you cannot see both sides of the river at the same time, due to the configuration of the boat. But overall it was a great experience to do at least once if you are in Budapest.
