Full description

Discover Budapest at night on a boat trip along the Danube River. Sip unlimited champagne, mimosas, or lemonade as you admire the Hungarian capital's top sights from the water. Learn about the landmarks from the audio guide. Choose whether to include a local food platter in your cruise experience.

Board the boat on the Pest side of the river. Check in, choose your seat and settle down with a welcome drink of Törley (Hungarian sparkling wine), spritzer, or homemade lemonade. Take in the amazing views of Budapest's key attractions from your seat as you listen to the recorded English commentary.

When you get thirsty, visit the bar for unlimited free refills on your sparkling wine, spritzer, or lemonade, or buy other drinks if you prefer. Head to the top deck to capture incredible photos of Budapest from the water or you on the boat. Relax as you enjoy the views, drinks, and lounge music. If you choose the option with food, tuck into an assorted platter of Hungarian specialties: cured Mangalica ham, two types of homemade sausage, handcrafted hard cheese, marinated fresh goat cheese, grilled red peppers, pickled vegetables, and ciabatta bites. Once you've indulged, return to the dock.

We chose the Evening Cruise (21.00) and it was a great choice due to the beautiful views and atmosphere. The most important buildings of the capital are beautifully illuminated and it can be delightful :) The meeting point is well marked and there is no problem to get to it. Our cruise was slightly delayed (approx. 15 minutes) due to the ship being tidied up after the previous group. On the downside: huge crowds in front of the entrance, travelers crowded to take seats. The number of people was too large and only half of the people (including us) got on the cruise planned for 9.00 p.m., and you could see the irritation of the others waiting. We bought the option with a meal and unlimited wine. Plate dinner with local specialties - all fresh and tasty. The staff made sure that no one was short of wine, you could also try two types of non-alcoholic lemonade. Music was playing in the background, and the English voiceover told about the most important attractions. Seating options inside an

Great value!!! We just missed our reservation (7pm) because Google Maps showed us the wrong way, but they were very kind and let us go on the 21 boat instead.

The food was absolutely good, but you weren't particularly full. Highly recommend!!! I would have brought food if I were you, it looked a bit "empty" on the other people's tables and not as pleasant

Highly recommend! Beautiful sights along the Danube at night. Your glass is never empty. We arrived 25 mins early, joined the queue and got the last table on the top deck so definitely arrive early if you want to sit outside! We had the food, it wasn’t bad but wasn’t really worth it and it didn’t arrive for almost an hour.
