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

Overall it was a good activity. The ride is smooth and with a great staff and views. The only thing they should work on is that the company that's giving the service should do something regarding the waiting line. It was a chaos to enter the boat and the people that arrives early to grab a good seat gets runned by all other people piling up in the entrance.

It was really great, though the ship was 15 minutes late and we had to wait. The waiters were kinda slow too so it took almost whole cruise till the waiter asked us what will we drink and also till the waiter got our order to us. We almost didnt finish our drinks and had to leave already. But overall it was a great experience!

We were on the 20:30 sailing in August so it was just getting dark. The buildings and bridges all along the route are illuminated and you have a great vantage point on board the Neptune to take as many photos as you want. Very well organised with three evening sailings, a must trip if you have the time.
