Full description

Enjoy this daytime sightseeing cruise on the legendary blue Danube and sail between the Buda and Pest sides of magical Budapest.

Board the boat directly at the pier in central Budapest, and sip a drink of your choice. You can choose a glass of champagne, wine, beer, a soft drink, or mineral water along with a complimentary special Duna Bella lemonade. During the cruise, you’ll see the majestic Chain Bridge and Elisabeth Bridge, admire the massive Budapest Parliament Building, see the Buda Castle on the hill, and circle Margaret Island. You’ll learn about the main sights from the 30-language audio guide. In the summer, you can make an optional stop at the cool and green Margaret Island, if you like. You’ll receive a free map of the small island with recommended walking tours and information about sights to see. Afterward, you’ll board the boat for the return trip to central Budapest.

    It was very good, directions to the location were good and we had no problem finding the boarding point. A free drink as soon as you were on board was very welcome. The commentary was helpful to pick out the buildings, with a male voice for the Buda side and female for the Pest side. The bonus was that Margaret Island was open, which was closed when we booked up. All in all it was a really enjoyable experience.

    We had a really lovely hour on the boat. There are headphones on the boat guiding your tour in multiple languages. You get a choice of beverages, I had wine and my partner had apple juice. The boat is covered so the weather does not prevent the tours from taking place.

    A very informative cruise thanks to the audio guide, on a boat perfect for this tour, wherever you are you can see everything! Warm welcome with a warm welcome drink (December 25), we are delighted with this walk, we are a couple of 60 years old, with young adult children.
