Budapest Night Walking Tour and River Cruise

The city of Budapest sparkles at night and this evening tour is the perfect way to experience it. Explore the streets first with your local guide, who will pass on stories of illustrious Hungarians and the surrounding architecture. You’ll hear about where the first Hungarians came from, and the facts behind the famous Attila the Hun. As you walk through the city and admire the buildings illuminated with light, you’ll have the chance to ask questions and take photos of the glowing Buda Castle District and the Danube Promenade.

Then give your legs a rest and climb aboard an evening cruise on the Danube. Enjoy a free welcome drink and the chance to see the top attractions from the water.

Excellent. I had a personal tour as I was the only one. This is a good tour to take when you arrive in the city to gain your bearings. The river is magical and teh boat ride offered wonderful perspectives.

This is a must do here. This city glows at night and you will be able to take the best pictures while walking on this tour and on the river cruise.

Our guide Christina was very sweet and informative. She led us around the best parts of the city and then showed us to our boat. The boat had an informative video and commentary in many different languages for everyone. The Danube lights up at night. You will not regret the boat cruise. It goes by pretty quickly.

Excellent tour. 2 hours walking seemed daunting but it went by very quickly. Laszlo was our guide and he paced the tour to participants fitness level or lack there of. He was very knowledge and nice. Highly recommend the tour. Boat cruise on the Danube a must at night.

Our guide was Brigit and she was fantastic! Her delivery entertained even my two kids who aren't easily entertained! She was very knowledgeable and humerous. Highly recommend her and this tour.

Peter, our very knowledgable and personable guide from Discover Budapest led us on a night walking tour of Budapest. Our group was very small, 4 of us, so questions and insight could be easily shared. We really felt like a local was showing us around this beautiful city. Eventually we made our way to the Danube River where we boarded the Legenda river cruise. Seeing the buildings, particularly the Parliament Building, lit up is unforgettable.

This was a very personalised tour because there were only two of us, so we were able to ask George lots of questions about stuff that interested us. He is obviously passionate about Budapest's history and had excellent knowledge. The cruise was a lovely way to finish the evening.
