Budapest: City Highlights Cruise with Welcome Drink

1. Budapest: City Highlights Cruise with Welcome Drink

Discover Budapest on a romantic sightseeing cruise along the River Danube. See the old buildings - depending on the time day - lit up and get the best views while sipping a complimentary glass of welcome drink (alcoholic/non-alcoholic). Climb aboard the boat at the pier at Dock 42 port next to Budapest's Szent István Park and receive your welcome drink upon arrival. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride as you cruise along the calm Danube River. See the stunning city of Budapest from a whole new perspective and admire the skyline. Sail down the river and marvel at passing monuments such as the National Parliament, Buda Castle, and the recently restored Várkert Bazár. Head to the open deck for perfect views of the illuminated Vigadó Concert Hall, or look at the floodlit monuments - depending on the time day - between the Margaret Bridge and Rákóczi Bridge from the comfort of the deck either with panoramic windows or open air. You are free to change places at any time (since Budapest uses the illumination to commemorate certain events like Earth Hour, Fight Against Breast Cancer, and national events, the light may vary in color and intensity). The tour is not guided, experience the city more like a local - the boat functions as a floating coffee house or pub experience with its own bar available during the cruise. Feeling thirsty? No worries, treat yourself to another drink from the pub onboard or have a hot cup of coffee from the coffee house if you like. Finally, end your cruise sailing back to the pier with long-lasting memories and great pictures.

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.

Budapest: Guided Downtown Electric Bike Tour

Explore Budapest, the so-called "Paris of the East," on a comfortable and innovative e-bike. You will either use our bikes with wooden frames from my-esel or Kalkhoff Berleen e-bikes. Please note that an e-bike means a bicycle with electric support and still requires you to pedal. First up, take in the full length of Andrássy Avenue passing the Hungarian State Opera House, the House of Terror, and arrive at Heroes' Square. You can be sure your guide will have all the stories along the way. From Heroes' Square, continue into City Park where you’ll be surprised by a fake castle and the Széchenyi Thermal Bath, the largest and most popular in the city. The trip continues with highlights like the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music and the Jewish Quarter before diving into the downtown area.  See and learn about St. Stephen's Basilica, the largest church in Budapest. In the heart of the financial district lies Liberty Square with a bloody history and a disputed Holocaust memorial. From here it is not far from the Hungarian Parliament Building, a landmark in Budapest. Next, reach the Danube River with a breathtaking view of the Buda side of the city. You will pass the Monument of the Shoes, but please note that direct access cannot always be granted. Cross the newly renovated Chain Bridge now closed for private cars and arrive at Buda, from where you will start to climb Castle Hill. Here the electric support of your bike will show its strength. Admire Matthias Church and the Fisherman's Bastion before returning to the Danube Bank and passing the historical Rudas Bath. At Gellért Hill, see the famous Gellért Thermal Bath cross back to Pest via Liberty Bridge, the most popular bridge in Budapest. Do not miss the Central Market Hall and the Hungarian National Museum before you reach the Dohány Street Synagogue, the final stop on the tour before you return to the starting point of the tour.

What people are saying about Gellért Baths

Overall rating

4.2
(4,070 reviews)

The price is cheap and there is a free welcome drink (you can choose juice or wine). You can line up 30 minutes early to choose a better seat. The overall CP value is very high but there seems to be no English guide (it should be okay because everyone is looking at the scenery) )

A Budapest must do! I recommend getting there even earlier than 15 mins before departure time as the queue is big. The boat turns round so sit on the side by the dock/where you board as when the boat turns half way you get parliament right next to you which is stunning.

Splendid experience, accompanied by a glass of prosecco or a good non-alcoholic drink if you are a teetotaler, this small cruise allows you to have a breathtaking view of the beautiful Budapest, simply to contemplate, I really recommend it wholeheartedly.

The city looks gorgeous at night, and we had a good glass of wine to sip on while enjoying the views. You can choose to sit inside or on the deck, but the views are great from inside too, if you pick a table near the window.

A beautiful evening, romantic atmosphere. Nice city view
