Take in the illuminated highlights of Budapest during an evening cruise on the Danube River, which gives you some of the best opportunities to snap photos of the city's top landmarks lit up. Float past the UNESCO World Heritage–listed riverbanks in a glass-enclosed boat, toasting the sights with an included beverage (alcoholic or nonalcoholic). Highlights include the Chain Bridge, the Buda Castle District, the Hungarian Parliament, and others, which are all put into context with onboard film and audio guides available in multiple languages.

Just perfect in my opinion. Nothing fancy. Just well run sightseeing cruise. Just enough info. Includes all interesting spots in good pace, in plenty of language choice. I recommend bring your own headset to plug in. They give a free welcome drink which is good. No need to line
