“Must do night cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Although the Danube isn't as blue as the famous song "blauen Donau" might make you to believe, the sides of the river through Budapest are build up with fabulous majestic buildings. Even if you walk the river sides and cruise the Danube during the day, do not pass by the opportunity to enjoy a night time cruise on the river. The buildings are lit up and their golden shine reflects in the water. Absolute best time is starting after sunset when the sky is multicolored and ending in dark. The night cruises take about one hour. There are plenty of options to choose from and you will be given ample chances to investigate those options as representatives of each company will approach you whenever you get close to the Danube. We found Dunayacht to be the cheapest and best value. If you use the daytime Dunayacht to visit Margaret Island, you should know that only every second boat, that is every two hours, the boat will dock on the island. So if you stop, you only have a boat back two hours later. The Dunayacht sells snacks and drinks on board, but is not a party boat, so it is nice and quiet.

“Blue when you are in love”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Last day of our river cruise. It's been fabulous. The river is so beautiful whatever the colour and lots of variety. I would like to do it again perhaps a different stretch. Highly recommended

“Beautiful river through a gorgeous town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

The river cruises start from as low as 1000 Forints and are very worth it. The river, bridges and the town are gorgeous!

“Amazing”

Must see the city from the river by a lot of boats where you can join on with just a little bit of forints!

“River cruised around the island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

We took an hour out of our day to take a short cruise on the river. It was peaceful and offered a different view of both sides of the river.
