Budapest’s UNESCO-listed Danube banks are especially impressive at sunset and after dark, and this evening cruise lets you enjoy them in comfort, from the water. Savor unobstructed views of the main landmarks as they glide past and light up in their evening illuminations, and enjoy two drinks, including a sparkling wine, plus live music, on route. Upgrade to enjoy a 4-course dinner on board.
What to Expect
Book your preferred tour option, meet your guide in central Budapest, and stroll to the Danube River dock to board your ship.

Relax as you're served with two welcome drinks—a glass of sparkling wine, plus your choice of a wine, beer, or soda. Then, soak in the sights as you cruise by the UNESCO-listed embankments.

Gaze at the Parliament, Buda Castle district, and Chain Bridge, and watch the sights light up with their evening illuminations. Enjoy the live onboard folk music from the Hungaria Folk Orchestra, and if you wish, head to the open deck to enjoy the views.

If you’ve selected a dinner cruise, savor a traditional 4-course Hungarian buffet meal, made extra memorable by the glittering backdrop of sights. (See the Itinerary for a sample menu.)

Your cruise finishes back at the original starting point.

A nice nighttime view of Budapest

Our river cruise included a hotel pickup and drop off and the drink option. The cruise itself was nice with great views of the city at a nice slow pace along the river. The ship had ample restrooms and the wait staff did a great...More

Cruise was nice but you went around in circles for the majority of it. The food wasn’t great but wasn’t awful. Service was a little harassing at times and rushed. You do get to see the sights but enjoyed it more walking around

wonderful voyage on the Danube

admire the sunset while flowing with the river on board the boat. the dinner is nice but you can also enjoy the wonderful architecture with a drink or without anything - the spell is there and cloaks you into the mood

I don't know about October. If it's warm enough to be out on deck, it will be OK (I was there in June). There will only be one departure time per evening--check with the company.
