  • Soak in the festive atmosphere on an evening cruise
  • Admire the city lights and seasonal illuminations from the water
  • Enjoy a buffet dinner or a tasting of seven Hungarian wines

Select your tour option of dinner or winetasting at checkout, and then travel independently to Budapest’s Danube Palace concert hall on the River Danube in time for departure on the day of your tour.

Step aboard your cruise boat, and enjoy a welcome drink on the scenic open deck. Then, absorb the festive atmosphere and Budapest’s lights and Christmas illuminations reflected in the water as you sail along the legendary river.

If you have chosen the dinner option, savor a candlelit buffet dinner with a glass of wine, water, and additional drinks (own expense). Choose from dishes prepared by a well-regarded chef, enjoying everything from classic Hungarian foods and international entrées to yummy desserts.

If you have chosen the winetasting option, sample seven of Hungary’s top wines. If you wish, pair them with dishes (own expense) from an à la carte menu.

As you relax, listen to salon music from three members of the Hungária Folk Orchestra, a troupe awarded the coveted Kodály Zoltán prize. Sway along to the rousing melodies, which features the zither-like cimbalom, Hungary’s national folk instrument.

After two hours, your experience concludes at the departure point, leaving you to enjoy the rest of your evening independently.
