What to Expect
Book your preferred departure time and travel from your Budapest hotel by air-conditioned vehicle to the dock on the Danube River. Take a seat on the open upper deck or beside the picture windows on the lower deck, and absorb the UNESCO-listed Danube riverbanks as your boat sets sail. Then, enjoy tastings of local wines all produced additive-free by some of Hungary’s leading organic winemakers. Savor each variety and nibble on snacks to cleanse your palate between each glass. As you sip, watch the sunset (depending on selected departure) and view Budapest’s landmarks bathed in evening lights. Admire the illuminated Parliament, Gellert Baths, and Fisherman’s Bastion, and have your camera ready as you pass under the floodlit Chain Bridge. If you wish, purchase additional onboard drinks, such as sweet dessert wines, before your experience ends with a hotel drop-off. Alternatively, choose a craft beer or cocktail cruise to suit your preferences. Soft drinks are available on request.

If you want do to a cruise to see the buildings and take pictures, try someone else. We were given a table in the middle of the rather big boat, as most of the other tables were reserved for groups. We couldnt really see much and asked if there were no better seating available

A nice introduction to Budapest, you get to see a lot of beautiful buildings from the boat and the live music was very good. The drinks and food all seemed reasonably priced. 2 hours is a long time to be sat just looking without knowing what anything is as there is no guide so

Thank you for your kind words. We can not have a guide on the boat because of the live music. Next time try our daytime cruises where audioguide is available. Gabriella

This was a last minute trip and it was well worth it (booked online), not over price for the travellers, drinks and live Hungarian music included or for a bit more you could have a meal as well (we didn't this time). There was a bit of a walk to get to the boat from the meeting
