your experience

Marvel at the wonderful sights of Budapest on the Danube as you enjoy this wonderful 70-minute cruise with a welcome drink. Travel on a newly renovated boat that also offers you free WiFi and an audio guide.

See the hidden nature of the riverbanks from this sightseeing cruise - things that one can only see from the water. Bridges over the River Danube were built in many rounds. Take in the fascinating architecture of the Chain Bridge and the Margaret Bridge. Passing by Margaret Island will give you an opportunity to see locals walking and jogging on this calm and relaxing favorite getaway within the city. A smooth turn around the Island will take you to a part of the city that can hardly be reached by foot.

The sightseeing cruise will continue under two very famous bridges, one of which is the Chain Bridge with the guardian lions from the street sides, beautifully illuminated during the evening hours. Passing the Danube Promenade on Vigadó Square is truly enjoyable and will take you to the next modern bridge over the river Danube - Elisabeth Bridge.

The dominant white color of the bridge connects the city into one. Above the bridge on the Buda side of the river, you can see the statue of Szent Gellért after whom the hill was named. On top of the hill, you will see the beautiful Hungarian woman, Citadella, standing proud with her arms open. Imagine these sights in the soft glow of the lights at night - how beautiful and mesmerizing.
