We took the day trip an the night trip with this boat. The boat is basic,but it does the job! They have a 2 days unlimited cruising package at a reasonable price, and you can also get coupons for two boat rides for free if you buy the ticket for the green bus hop-on hop-off tour. The views of the... More

Find a restaurant either literally on the water or nearby to sit and watch all of the various kinds of boats go by. Or even better, take a cruise on the river, day or night, for amazing views of the city. Many cruises offer various types of meal options, entertainment, and slow rides for those sensitive to boat and water... More

Hi! Is not our first trip to Budapest, but anytime we are influenced by the river! You can see the nice bridges on the Danube! Buda side is great as well. A lot of nice restaurants in the area .

We took a night cruise with dinner which was excellent. Parliament looked absolutely stunning from the river, as did other buildings all lit up. We also cruised in the daytime where you could see Margaret island all green and peaceful.

Great way to see the city, illuminated at night. Worth every penny, or HUF. 90 minutes and a good buffet meal cam be found on many cruises.

The Danube is very beautiful. It is worth going to the Buda side to get a sweeping view of the Danube. A cruise down the river is also worthwhile especially at night.

I was so looking forward to the blue of the Danube, it was not. It was more like a milky gray color. Then it turns a different shade when the clouds go by. It however is a wide and fast moving river. We enjoyed the ride from the Main to the Danube into Budapest.

I was so looking forward to the cruise and day spent in Sentendre after reading all the hype but was pretty disappointed. Again a lot of souvenir shops selling the same stuff. There was some art to be bought and handcrafted items but nothing extraordinary. One of the restaurants would not take a credit card. Not many restaurants to choose... More

Big huge river, great selection of different bridges across it. Definitely recommend going on a night cruise, everything's lit up and it really does look smashing.
