This activity will end right where it started.
Book your preferred departure time, and travel independently to the departure pier in central Budapest.

Admire the glass-topped vessel and step aboard. Find a seat in the cabin and enjoy your first views of Budapest from the water as you set sail along the famous river.

Cruise southward past the UNESCO-listed Danube riversides, absorbing the lamplit waterfronts of Buda and Pest, and sailing under the floodlit Elizabeth Bridge and Liberty Bridge.

Admire the panoramic views of the Buda Castle district, making out the twinkling Royal Palace, and learn about the sights from the onboard film and recorded commentary (available in 30 languages). Along the way, sip on your choice of a glass of Champagne, wine, beer, soda, or mineral water, and if you wish, use the onboard Wi-Fi.

Have your camera ready to capture the floodlit spires of the Hungarian Parliament building, and glide under the Chain Bridge, its archways and suspension chains aglitter with lights.

Finally, see Margaret Island before enjoying a second chance to take photos of the Chain Bridge and Parliament as you cruise past them again.

Your experience ends when the boat arrives back at the departure pier.

Nighttime Cruise on Danube River

Lovely evening with gorgeous views of important Budapest landmarks! The boat was well maintained and the views were very good from both sides of the boat. We appreciated the headphone commentary in different languages so you could know what you were looking at.

Beautiful tour. It is not the cheapest you can get in Budapest but it's worth the money. Beautiful modern boat, we felt very safe all the way through. Nice documentary in your language of choice, We sat on the upper deck with the windows widely open, it was great.

I took this river cruise on the Danube at 8:30pm on July 30. The perfect time because the sky was beautiful and the buildings were lit up and stunning such as the Parliament, Buda Castle & Fisherman’s Bastion. You’d be crazy not to do it

The trip is worth every penny. I recommend the night trips as the sights and audio guides, which are included in the price, make for an overall good experience.

Beautiful Budapest at Night

A good value for the money and very centrally located to our hotel, which was a nice surprise. Audio system was confusing and often not syncing with where we were. It was average, but nice that it was provided in so many languages.

Great views
Rakhee_S

The tour it's self was great. You were told to sit when entering so everyone picked their seat and then told me to move to another boat so it was a little cashos there. Ours had a free drink included, softs drinks look a while to come. I had orange juice but it seem to have gone to someone else and every time I was asking for mine this man with his family kept ordering second rounds and were catered to, compared to my self. So the service was not 100 percent. Just a tip, bring spray with you, as its in the river you get bitten easily.

Some of the audio guide...

Some of the audio guide equipment on board was out of order. It felt like the drinks were watered down. The beautiful views of the city were the saving grace for this activity.

It is nice because they have a waiting area. I liked that there are headphones for everyone and even in Romanian language. The glass is dirty and is hard to see through it.

Unable to locate dock
Daniel_B
, Jun 2022
As instructed on the description we used a bolt taxi to Portum Lines we attempted to put dock 42 into the search for the taxi but wasn’t successful so we just got dropped off at the Portum Lines. From there we couldn’t find dock 42, we found 0 1 and 2 then found 6 after a 10 minute walk and gave up that we were far away from where we should be
