Meet your friendly local host at the Danube Palace in central Budapest for a 5-minute walk to the riverboat. With a warm welcome aboard, get ready to enjoy your 1.5-hour afternoon sightseeing cruise on the Danube River, which flows right through the center of this historical capital city.
Relax as you take in the gorgeous sights of Budapest, admiring the UNESCO World Heritage-listed panorama as you sip a glass of Champagne, followed by your choice of wine, beer or juice. Pass bridges such as the Margaret, Erzsébet and Chain Bridge, and view cultural landmarks like the National Theatre, Parliament, Buda Castle Quarter and Gellért Baths.
If you choose the lunch option, enjoy a buffet meal of typical Hungarian and international dishes plus a glass of Champagne, a glass of wine and a bottle of mineral water.
