What You Can Expect

Budapest Danube River Dinner Cruise

Budapest Szechenyi Chain Bridge

Your evening will begin at Danube Palace in the center of Budapest. From there, a guide will show you the way to the river where your dinner cruise will be waiting for you. You can toast your fellow shipmates with a glass of wine or Champagne as you gaze out the windows to view Budapest’s panorama, given recognition by UNESCO as a World Heritage site.
Many of Budapest’s notable sights are showcased along the river, and you’ll have a front-row seat to admire the glowing Buda Castle and the Freedom Monument. You’ll also pass the Gellért Baths, where Hungarians and visitors alike come to swim and relax, as well as the Chain Bridge, a suspension bridge that spans the river and connects Buda and Pest.
If you’d like to dine aboard your Danube River cruise, select the option at checkout to include a traditional Hungarian meal with your ticket, which will be served buffet-style. (Please check the Itinerary section for a sample of the menu.) Live music from the Hungaria Folk Orchestra will also be provided as you take in all the sights, history and culture that this sparkling city has to offer.

Views are great! Good ok. A lot of people, but all organized well - so you don and #39;t feel a crowd.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

Very well organised. Ours was the full bus version as too early in the year for the return by river. Recommended.

Beautiful evening cruise!! Highly recommend.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

Wow - what a night. The food was great. Very surprised how good it was, considering it was a buffet. The welcome and seating of guests was very well organised, but make sure you get to the meeting spot early so as it can be tricky to find. The cruise has one of the best nights we had in 6 weeks in Europe and a must must must if you go to Budapest. The view is superb. The staff are wonderful. DO NOT MISS this tour !!!!! It's great.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

This was a surprise for all of us. The food was wonderful - there was huge variety and plenty to try. An extra drink was pricey but there were three drinks included. The views were beautiful, especially once it was dark. The band were entertaining but we would have liked some commentary on what we were seeing.

Take your print out into Danuba Palota to be exchanged for a ticket. Good trip, all as described. Musicians played through out. No commentary, which we liked.
