Book your preferred departure time, and travel independently to the departure pier in central Budapest.

Admire the glass-topped Duna Legend and step aboard. Find a seat in the cabin and enjoy your first views of Budapest from the water as you set sail along the famous river.

Cruise southward past the UNESCO-listed Danube riversides, absorbing the lamplit waterfronts of Buda and Pest, and sailing under the floodlit Elizabeth Bridge and Liberty Bridge.

Admire the panoramic views of the Buda Castle district, making out the twinkling Royal Palace, and learn about the sights from the onboard film and recorded commentary (available in 30 languages). Along the way, sip on your choice of a glass of Champagne, wine, beer, soda, or mineral water, and if you wish, use the onboard WiFi.

Have your camera ready to capture the floodlit spires of the Hungarian Parliament building, and glide under the Chain Bridge, its archways and suspension chains aglitter with lights.

Finally, see Margaret Island before enjoying a second chance to take photos of the Chain Bridge and Parliament as you cruise past them again.

Your 60-minute experience ends when boat arrives back at the departure pier.

Will return!!

Good because it was a decent price - but hard to see some of the lights through the plastic protective coverings to prevent wind and cold. If this was better weather time of the year I can see this would be lovely. Nice length at one hour and beautiful to see the city lights from the river.

This is a must do. Although the weather was not great, the boats are fully covered.

Relaxing hour on the Danube - very pretty as all the buildings were lit. Commentary could have been a little clearer. Complimentary drink included!
Very enjoyable.

I had a terrific time on the Danube Legend Cruise. The only thing I'd change is next time I'll opt for an open-air boat. My pics were a little blurred because they were taken through glass. Otherwise it was great. I recommend.

A highlight of our Budapest trip. The views were amazing, the service efficient and friendly. They even switched us at short notice from the 8.30pm trip to the next one, once we called in about an hour ahead to let them know we would not be able to make the original sailing. The seats and views were fine, nothing to complain about at all. A lovely experience!
