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.

A lovely way to see the city sights of the Danube at night with live Hungarian music and drinks. The atmosphere on the boat was great , staff very helpful, and the live music made it fun! Even though it rained and it was quite misty, we could still see a lot of the important buildings from the river; and when the parliament building was lit up that made it more special! The extra drinks that we bought on board were fantastic value.

It was good, I booked the cruise without the restaurant and when I got there I was offered a free white wine, and they gave me a menu with cheap prices. I wanted to book the restaurant cruise but it coasts a lot more and you can find the same food on the cruise without the restaurant.

It was a cold night so we spent the time inside. We received the drink and there was nice music on board. We could not take pictures from the inside as there was a lot of reflection from the light. But you could go outside. We didn’t order food but this was available.
