1-Hour Sightseeing Cruise with Welcome Refreshment included

Experience the stunning city of Budapest like a true local with a sightseeing cruise along the picturesque River Danube. Sip on a complimentary welcome drink as you glide past some of the city's most notable landmarks, including the majestic National Parliament, the iconic Buda Castle, and the charming Várkert Bazár. Onboard, you'll have the option to head to the open deck for breathtaking views of the illuminated Vigadó Concert Hall or to relax in the comfort of the air-conditioned deck with panoramic windows. And, with the boat functioning as a floating coffee house or pub experience with its own bar, you can enjoy a refreshing drink or hot beverage as you take in the beautiful scenery.

Know before you go: 

  • 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
  • Seats are taken in the order of arrival; there are special seating options, but there are no assigned seats
  • The boat you'll be riding on is the M/S Neptun. Other boats may be used occasionally

Move on board the delight boat at the wharf of Budapest's Szent István Park and accept the welcome refreshment. Then take a cruise down the Danube, passing landmarks like the National Parliament, Buda Castle, and the recently restored Várkert Bazár.

View the floodlit monuments between the Margaret Bridge and the Rákóczi Bridge from the comfort of an air-conditioned deck with panoramic windows, or head to the open deck for stunning views of the Vigadó Concert Hall.

Though there is no audio or live guides on board, it functions as a floating coffee house or pub experience with its own bar. This allows you to experience the city more like a local.

I would definitely recommend this! The journey lasts an hour and you have the option to sit inside (great in the winter, as they have heating) or outside, which is perfect for pictures and have also a nice seating area. The welcome you with a glass of prosecco or a mocktail, I choose the non-alcoholic drink and it was really nice. The boat has free wi-fi, and you can order more drinks from the bare if you want.

It was a nice experience. The only bad thing was that we had to be on the lower part of the boat and look through the windows that were a bit dirty, so I suggest to get there early to get the best seats. For the price I would still recommend it though. You get to see all of the main buildings illuminated at night and they are very beautiful.

This experience was incredible and worth every penny! The only con unfortunately is something out of the cruise operator control but could somehow be addressed with potential guests: the queue jumping. It was very disrespectful. We were 2 and chose the last cruise of the day (08:40 pm), we arrived before 8pm to be able to go in first and chose seats. There were already 6 people in line, divided in 2 groups. As dozens of more people started arriving everybody just started jumping the queue and...

Very nice experience, especially in the evening in the dark. The only drawback is the music that you turned on in the middle of the trip. Much too loud and much too quick-tempered. This disturbed the calm atmosphere.

The Danube cruise is a great experience to do in the evening hours when the evening lights begin to turn on. The welcome drink is a glass of prosecco. The seating is divided into 2 floors both indoor and outdoor. There is background music but not a guide.
