First in Europe!Budapest – as you can only see it with us Until now you could choose between touring our beautiful capital on four wheels or marvelling at the city from the deck of a pleasure boat. Now you don’t need to choose: RiverRide is a special sightseeing tour on which you can see the sights of Budapest from a comfortable seat, first along its busy streets, and then, from one second to the next – to the gasps of some of your fellow travellers – you splash into the lapping water of the river.

The taxi/boat is parked up just by the University of Pest and there is no need to prebook you can just show up, however if the tour is booked you will have to wait for the next tour. You are offered headsets set to the language of your choice and you have the option of a live feed in German... More

We tried this Riverride of budapest while on holiday in the Hungarian capital. Do make a reservation if you intend to take this trip as it could be that it will be fully booked if you just turn up on site. Our hotel reception took care of all this and we enjoyed this interesting trip with a difference !!

My then boyfriend (now fiancé!), enjoyed this tour. It was refreshing to opt for something a bit different and we were not disappointed. The bus takes you around some of the city, with commentary in various languages. The talented guide saying the information spoke in both German and English, which was very impressive. Her commentary was interesting and lively, providing... More

Saw this advertised and it looked a bit different to the usual bus tours of cities. Easy to book and very friendly staff greeted us upon arrival. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and was able to keep the group interested and involved throughout the entire tour. The obvious selling point is the portion of the tour down the Danube....

Have done similar in a number of cities. The bus is only a few years old and great, but you see not much of Pest, nothing of Buda and the river ride is not particularly inspiring, missing many of the key areas you would like to see.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
