Much of Budapest’s grand architecture and other landmark sites are located along the river, so a cruise along the Danube is an ideal way to get to know the city. Relax with a drink as you watch the city scenery go by through the large windows. You have the chance to disembark at Margaret Island and explore for 90 minutes until the next boat comes along, or stay on board if you wish.

Beautiful views and a nice way to cool off in 30C heat.
Some of the audio guides didn’t work so involved a bit of finding a seat so we could hear the information about the buildings.
There were a bunch of annoying people loudly talking and laughing, but it nice we moved downstairs was quite relaxing.
I didn’t realise the cruise included 2 drinks, a homemade orangeade and one of your choice such as wine which was really good value.

You can hop off on Margaret island and then get on a later boat, but we decided to just stay on.

Went on this cruise today. Had pre booked my ticket. Went along to the pier and we were allowed to board about ten minutes before hand. I recommend getting there earlier than they say, so you can get the front seats of the boat! Headphones provided, select the language and you have a very informative narration about how Buda and Pest became one. Hot drink offered at the start of cruise, then champagne or soft drink towards the end.
Boat clean and staff pleasant. Lasts just over an hour. If you're going in the winter, wrap up because even though you're inside, it's still cold.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time on this 90 minute cruise. The audio narration gave quite a bit of information on the first half of the trip. I would recommend sitting back a bit, so the glass doesn’t impede your view or photos. A relaxed pace, easy to find the dock, and entry on/ off the boat. We took the 11 AM cruise, which enabled us to have a group lunch right after in a nearby cafe.

Very nice all around! Location of boat was easy to find; using scan code and getting on boat was simple. Once on, the boat was clean and there were plenty of headsets on the chairs for people to use. The commentary of the sights in English was very clear and did not ‘drone on’ which was nice. The only point on this is that the commentary was out of sync with the view, ie, it told us about the sight before we got to it. However, this is not a complaint, the view was wonderful and it was a joy to relax, whilst enjoy our complimentary drink (nice touch). The trip was a total of 1 hour 10 mins. This was the perfect amount of time and I would definitely recommend this to start off before sightseeing on foot, it gives you an overview of places you may wish to visit.

There are a zillion sellers that want you to go with their boattour.
As a tourguide I have done most of them.
This company Legenda at dock 7 in front of the Mariott hotel is worth your money.

With the ticket you go on a 1 hour tour (it says 1 hour 10, but that is not the case, only when it stops at the Margaritat island and that is to let people go on or off).
You start with a warm tea with lemon or orange.
After that you can choose any drink you want: champagne, beer, wine, coke (no diet coke), water, etc.

The best thing? They have a great audio system! You put on the headseat and listen to the information in your own language. Even the music fits the different languages. I am Dutch and the way they came up with this idea? The Buda side is a man and the Pest side is a woman (or other way around, I forgot after hearing it so often).

You can get off the boat at the island if you want and only at specific times.
So if you were planning to visit it anyway? Go with this company.
Worth your money.

We got this tour for free through the "Budapest plus card", however the tour would definitely have been worth the money. The boat personel is very friendly and combined speak most European languages. At the beginning, you get served a glass of hot mulled "wine" and afterwards you are offered a complimentary drink of champagne, beer, wine or soft drink.

There is a prerecorded audio guide in several languages, but the earphones aren't the best.

We really enjoyed learning about the buildings and bridges and even statues dotted along the Danube in Budapest. The tour info on the headphones were really informative and easy to understand. So many languages to choose from too! The complimentary drinks were nice, the staff spoke English and were friendly. The Water Closet/Toilets were very clean, modern and easy to access by stairs. Our toddler fell asleep in his stroller 5 minutes before we arrived and slept until after we de-boarded. #winning - The only things that I wish were different were that the windows had less glare and less streaked. Most of our photos didn't turn out well because of this and... we never stopped on Margaret island as we had expected. Perhaps it was because it was February and cold. Not sure but no explanation was given. I would go on a night cruise next time just for contrast and because Budapest is even prettier at night with all the lights. I would recommend Legenda and just know that this is more of a sit down, relax and listen kind of tour than a photographers paradise kind of thing.

Loved this! Great sights, and fantastic commentary in so many languages. Learnt a lot about Budapest’s history, and we were given 2 complimentary drinks. Option to drop off at Margaret island is great, and I felt the cruise was just the perfect length and great value for money. Highly recommend!!

Great river cruise, provided with an orange tea at departure and prosecco during the river cruise. Views were beautiful. Headphones were of poor quality and alot of bird mess on the roof of the boat.
However really enjoyed it and worth the money.

The boat was lovely and clean, the windows at the sides opened up so it was a lovely temperature and wasn't stuffy, it was also easy to see both sides of the river through the guide. I was shocked to find that not many people were booked so we had enough room to move about if we wanted to have a better view of the other side. The drink was lovely on the way there and the lemonade on the way back was a great touch 👌 the guide headphones were comfortable and it was easy to understand - not crackly or low volume. Good history given and easy to understand which parts were being spoken about. We decided to take the 1.5h stop off at Margaret island and we definitely underestimated the size of the place. We ended up almost missing the boat back. There are also hire pedal bike carts to get around. We power walked most of it as a young couple in their 20's I thought that would have been plenty of time. 😅
I loved the boat trip and it was perfectly run, friendly crew, clean boat, lovely day. I would recommend this tour
