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.

We really liked the experience. The boat is spacious, the bathrooms are clean AND the tour is perfect. The view of the monuments is incredible. We were very lucky with the location because we went to the end of the boat, although I am sure that from the side you also have very good views. The only thing that I did not like is that we had problems with the meeting point, since what the GPS showed was wrong. Still we found it and everything went great The very nice musicians I would repeat

It was a romantic experience on a open boat. To see the shores of Budapest while the son was going slowwwly going down and the city get lit up was truly magical. There were choices in the menu and the food was of very high quality. Overall a very excellent 3 hours spent.

Delightful experience. Docking was right across from the Budapest Marriott- which I highly recommend. Service was excellent and attentive. Menu selection a little limited but food was very good. FANTASTIC VIEWS during the nighttime cruise.

Relaxing, scenic cruise with excellent service, food and music. Highly recommend taking this cruise.

Very good food - Weather very nice in the evening - Very nice skyline of Budapest from the Danube
