  • Budapest: 1-Hour Sightseeing Cruise with Welcome Drink

    1. Budapest: 1-Hour Sightseeing Cruise with Welcome Drink

    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 

    Little cruise in the beautiful views, great value for the money. Inside the boat is a really classy bar with its big windows, but the drinks are actually cheap.

Very nice cruise, decent boat, watch out for the mist on the windows on the upper deck which never leaves and which prevents you from seeing. We got off and the cruise was magical. Welcome drink offered.

Little cruise in the beautiful views, great value for the money. Inside the boat is a really classy bar with its big windows, but the drinks are actually cheap.

Excellent view of the main monuments of Budapest, the hour flew by with our glass of champagne in hand.

The address is difficult to find. Just refer to DOC 42 (illuminated sign). Nice cruise. I recommend

Wonderful tour and optimal explanation of the sights. Highly recommended!
