When booking, choose between two or three departures, with timings dependent on the season, and pick a cruise length.

Head to the river dock near Pest’s Szent Istvan Park to board the comfortable boat and enjoy a seasonal welcome drink or orange juice. Then, settle on the interior deck, which is heated in winter and air-conditioned in summer, or the open deck, where blankets are available. The boat also offers complimentary Wi-Fi and a bar where you can purchase drink at your own expense.

Then, admire Budapest’s UNESCO-listed Danube embankments while you cruise. Glide by the Hungarian Parliament, Buda district, and Chain Bridge, and on later evening departures, view the night-time illuminations. If you’ve upgraded, savor a Hungarian charcuterie-and-cheese platter with a glass of red wine.

Your experience finishes back at the starting dock.

Best experience in Budapest

Best thing you can do in Budapest, especially during evning 19:30-20:30. You can see Budapest during day and night with stuning lights of Dunav river coast. Highly recomended :D

Beautiful by night

A great way to see the city. Good detail on what you could see delivered over PA not headphones, particularly good for me as a hearing aid wearer.

Budapest by night was great!

Very nice cruise. The boat was small but we got on board first so we managed to seat at a good spot and enjoy the ride.

Not exactly what expected

So the picture is misleading. But the cruise is what it says it is. It is a cruise on Danube. There is no one pointing out the sites and telling you what you are looking at. You get on the boat, pick a seat and...More

I don't know. I know that certain trip stop there in the afternoon, not at night though. Most night trips are just floating along the river (up and down for 30 minutes each leg).

We took the 8:45 which was perfect for dusk and evening photos. There was a 10pm cruise after ours.
