Enjoy this 70-minute-long daytime sightseeing cruise on the legendary blue Danube and sail between the Buda and Pest sides of magical

The cruise itself was great value for money, 70 minutes long with an optional stop-off at Margaret Island, decent commentary in a variety of languages and a free glass of alcohol and lemonade. Only downsides were that they had the heating on for the entire duration of the cruise, and everyone was having to fan themselves from how hot and stuffy it was! There also wasn’t enough clear signposting for how to get on the outside deck in my opinion!

Good experience, got to see a lot of sights however I found the audio a bit hard to understand so missed a bit. You also only get the one drink and you cannot purchase anymore so I was left with a horrible tasting sparkling wine that I couldn't even drink.

Jízda lodí trvala cca 70 minut, k dispozici byly sluchátka, kde si navolíte jazyk - čeština je výběru z asi 30 jazyků. Výklad je hezky udělaný - jednak vás upozorní na to, co vidíte, ale také seznámí aspoň částečně s historií jak konkrétních památek, tak města Budapešť. Loď byla vytápěná, WC k dispozici. Na uvítanou jsme dostali horký čaj a pak ještě byl na výběr jeden nápoj - pivo, víno, nealko, šampaňské. Pohled na památky podél Dunaje je zajímavý jak za denního světla, tak za večerního osvětlení. Aktivitu doporučuji.
