Overview
Budapest’s UNESCO-listed Danube banks are especially impressive at sunset and after dark, and this evening cruise lets you enjoy them in comfort, from the water. Savor unobstructed views of the main landmarks as they glide past and light up in their evening illuminations, and enjoy two drinks, including a sparkling wine, plus live music, on route. Upgrade to enjoy a 4-course dinner on board.
What to Expect
Book your preferred tour option, meet your guide in central Budapest, and stroll to the Danube River dock to board your ship.

Relax as you're served with two welcome drinks—a glass of sparkling wine, plus your choice of a wine, beer, or soda. Then, soak in the sights as you cruise by the UNESCO-listed embankments.

Gaze at the Parliament, Buda Castle district, and Chain Bridge, and watch the sights light up with their evening illuminations. Enjoy the live onboard folk music from the Hungaria Folk Orchestra, and if you wish, head to the open deck to enjoy the views.

If you’ve selected a dinner cruise, savor a traditional 4-course Hungarian buffet meal, made extra memorable by the glittering backdrop of sights. (See the Itinerary for a sample menu.)

Your cruise finishes back at the original starting point.

Great tour but lacking organisation

Transfers to the tour was brilliant and so friendly! And we were then introduced to the guide, given our tickets and shown to the boat! Sadly this is where the organisation of the tour stopped! Got a glass of champagne as we got on the...More

Well-organized

I lowered my expectations a bit because of some negative reviews but I’m glad we had no negative experience. Everything was smooth. I came with two friends. We chose the dinner option. The pick-up from our apartment was on time (driver even got there earlier)....More

Beautiful Evening

I loved this cruise on the River Danube. The meal was ok, the entertainment was great. I was serenaded by the performing artists and my own friend! Gorgeous. The sights along the river are breathtaking.

Fantastic outdoor and indoor views!

I don't know about October. If it's warm enough to be out on deck, it will be OK (I was there in June). There will only be one departure time per evening--check with the company.
