What to Expect
When booking, choose between departures times, with timings dependent on the season. 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 drinks 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. Your elegant evening experience finishes back at the starting dock.

This trip was put back 30 mins so we did not leave until 8.45 but this was ok. The drink was a too sweet cocktail of sorts - not nice- but the trip was good and value for money at only £16+ for two of us. It lasted 1 hour and the Parliament building was the best lit building.
