“River”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Covered a vast area. Water was very high and fast flowing. Not many cruises on the Danube at the time of visit. Many impressive bridges to cross from one side to the other together with impressive buildings.

“A Must see-especially at Night”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

The river separates the two cities-Buda and Pest and is incredibly beautiful with all the buildings lit up. The best view is from one of the many cruise boats.

“The Heart of the City”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Anyone who goes to Budapest cannot but help be drawn to this beautiful and picturesque waterway.

For so many thousands of years it has flowed and given beauty and life to the area. One can't stop and think of the history it has seen.

Whether you cruise on it or choose to walk along it's shores the Danube is something not to be missed especially as it flows through one of the most picturesque city's in the world.

Great by day or night.

“Best view in Budapest”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Cruising down the Danube at night is the best way to see Budapest lit up like Christmas. Parliament house, the citadel and the castle can all be seen and are stunning.
