Evening Cruise on the Danube with Optional Drinks

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Admire the breathtaking night view from the open air balconies of the boat while sipping on your favourite refreshment.

In the inner deck of the boat you will be serenaded with live music by three members of the Rajkó Folk Ensemble playing popular favourites as well as local classics for your amusement.
  • Combine sightseeing and wine on an evening Danube cruise in Budapest
  • Taste seven Hungarian wines, including Tokaj, as you view the city sights
  • See the Parliament, Chain Bridge, and Gellert Hill draped in lights
  • Snacks, hotel transfers, and onboard bar (own expense) for full experience
What to Expect
Book your preferred departure time and travel from your Budapest hotel by air-conditioned vehicle to the dock on the Danube River. Take a seat on the open upper deck or beside the picture windows on the lower deck, and absorb the UNESCO World Heritage Site Danube riverbanks as your boat sets sail. Then, enjoy tastings of seven local wines, such as Tokaj and Szajki, all produced additive-free by some of Hungary’s leading organic winemakers. Savor each variety and nibble on snacks to cleanse your palate between each glass. As you sip, watch the sunset (depending on selected departure) and view Budapest’s landmarks bathed in evening lights. Admire the illuminated Parliament, Gellert Baths, and Fisherman’s Bastion, and have your camera ready as you pass under the floodlit Chain Bridge. If you wish, purchase additional onboard drinks, such as sweet dessert wines, before your experience ends with a hotel drop-off. Alternatively, choose a craft beer or cocktail cruise to suit your preferences. Soft drinks are available on request.

We were seated at a table downstairs for the craft beer tasting, the heaters were on and it was too hot. There was very minimal commentary.

Dear Lancastc! We will keep in mind that in the future we will make another wine tasting package which would contain cheese and fruit as you mentioned, not only snacks. Thank you very much for your feedback.
