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.

It all started with our driver not showing up on time at our hotel. After calling the number on the email, another 15 minute wait, and he showed up. Little direction given as to the program. We were shown to a table and we sat...More

Rude waiter

Had to find our own way there, as we received no message, and were told on the ticket to go to a street 12 minutes walk away. We were caught up in a demonstration rally and when we did get to meeting point, the bus...More

So-so river cruise

Great views of the city at night with buildings all lit up. We didn't do the dinner based on other reviews; we just did the cruise with champagne and a second drink. The champagne was terrible; so sweet it tasted like carbonated apple juice. The...More

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.
