Couples seeking a romantic activity for some quality time together will love this evening cruise on the Danube River. After a busy day of sightseeing, sit back and relax as you cruise past some of Budapest's most beautiful attractions, lit up at night. Enjoy a 4-course dinner by candlelight, and be entertained with live Hungarian music.
