Full description
Climb aboard a pleasure boat at the pier of Budapest's Szent István Park and get a welcome beverage of a seasonal cocktail (mulled wine during winter) or soft drink. 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 
  • 1-hour boat cruise through downtown Budapest
  • Glass of seasonal cocktail (mulled wine during winter) or a soft drink

The dock that we were told to report at was changed and we were not informed until last minute. The announcement was also not made for everyone to hear, we saw some tourist beside us walking away and they informed us that the dock was changed and we also had to tell others that were still waiting in front of the dock that was officially indicated

1 Hour boat ride to enjoy the beautiful view of the illuminated city at night. It was a big boat with friendly staff, orange juice or mulled wine as a welcome drink. However, there were no blankets provided so it was a little cold to sit on the outside deck. Also there was no Audio commentary or other information on what we saw which I experienced on other boats.

Amazing experience. Would highly recommend if guides aren’t for you. Complementary drink given on arrival and great bar on board. Heated in winter time (when we done the trip) which added to the experience as you could enjoy it more. There is an option to go out onto the open deck if you wish.
