Often cited as one of Europe's most beautiful cities, Budapest is even more stunning from the river. The Buda side is made of a string of World Heritage sites stretching from the Chain Bridge to the Technical University, and includes the Gellért Bath, Mt. 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.

The performance also features a marvelous original Hungarian instrument, the famous “cimbalom”. The combination of string instruments and the cimbalom provides a uniquely Hungarian, unforgettable harmony and an outstanding atmosphere on-board.

Wish to hear your favorite popular song in a whole new adaptation? During the performance, guests will have a chance to request their favorite songs.

A really lovely way to see Budapest. The music a nice accompaniment. Drinks were very reasonably priced. We didn’t bother with food. Had a great night.

Mine was the night cruise with just welcome drink @10PM. The whole programme was well organized and I see few reviews saying that there's not enough space (two dining areas and a top deck) or not more than one drink provided for free. Well, it depends on how much you pay. It's clearly mentioned while booking. Moreover, it's not a "long" walk, around 500-600m only. Overall, it was a superb experience! Keep up the good work :)

Very good, in the offer is included a glass of tokay and then another glass of your choice (soft, champagne, wine, water) I advise you if it is not too cold to take outside because the places near the windows are reserved or take if late arrival. I advise you to come early

Absolutely astounding. A short walk to the Dock led us onto one of the most luxurious boats I have ever seen. I paid for dinner and the cruise and my partner and myself were led up to our own table and given champagne. Once the cruise was underway the food was opened up and all of it was lovely. Traditional Hungarian dishes and a cold desert table. Despite it being a buffet there was more than enough food and it was all cooked well. We were more than happy with everything presented. The music...

I was really disappointed by this evening which is a shame because all of the reviews were really good. I don’t enjoy massive boat trips so wasn’t aware that what seemed like at least a few hundred people would be onboard. You meet at the Danube and then are briskly walked to the boat ( this was a complete shambles, no on the tour group had a clue where they were going or what the location of the boat was) would have been much easier to just meet at the boat. The cruise itself was fun for the...

The offer with the drinks at the entrance is very value for money (there is an extra free drink included) . If you want an extra drink , the prices on board are great. The lights inside the boat were too strong though, and the duration of the cruise was too long (maybe half an hour shorter would be good). Overall it was a great experience and very value for money.

I booked the trip on the Danube for my daughter’s ‘hen’ treat with her sisters, friends and myself. The crew were so courteous and welcoming. The complementary drinks were very thoughtful and much appreciated. The actual cruise on the river was calming and absolutely magnificent, especially in the evening with all the buildings and surrounding area lit up beautifully. My daughter, as well as all of us ladies, have a amazing and fantastic memory to remember and hang on to, forever. Thank you s...

one of the best river cruise ever. Everything was amazing: the boat, the service, the staff, the music. Really nice option, so, if you do not buy the buffet option, one can always buy food on boar that is delicious and very cheap. Also drinks are super cheap. It was my second time here, and always good.

We went for the cheaper option which excluded the food, so I cannot comment on that aspect but the live music was exceptional. What a fabulous violinist! Fun and familiar tunes played, so your toes will be tapping along. The boat is quite lovely. Clean, attentive staff, good drinks, immaculate toilet facilities and a lovely large open deck on top so passengers can get those fantastic nightime shots of the city at its best. Happy to highly recommend.

We had booked a driver from and to our hotel, perfect solution when it finishes late. The lights and monuments were amazing, and we could take very beautiful pictures. The boat is quite long and you can circle all around on the deck and sit if you want to rest, outside or inside. The Hungarian orchestra is lovely too. A wonderful night!
