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

It was totally worth it to do it at night bcs the city and the building were glowing, something really spectacular! I got a welcome drink (Champaign or a juice) and went out on the deck right away with two blankets bcs is middle of September and is chilly here. And I enjoy my drink with that amazing view. The ride is about 1h back and forth to dock 42. The place was easy to find on google maps like they say In the details use dock 42 and google guide you. So for the price it was really a highlight for me :D

Positive experience. It is worth spending 9 euros to spend 1 hour on board where you will have the opportunity to see the city in a different light. The sunset time is recommended because you will have a range of shades of the sky that will color the city and then finish the tour by turning on the lights of the main monuments.

1 hour cruise on the Danube which allows you to see all the monuments that line the river. Tables at the back of the boat on the terrace perfect for seeing everything well. The route allows each side of the boat to have a good view of both shores between the outward and return journeys. Arrive well in advance, because the boat leaves right on time. Glass of champagne or glass of homemade lemonade included. So very nice activity to visit Budapest without getting too tired.
