What You Can Expect

Budapest City Tour with Danube River Sightseeing Cruise Ticket

Enjoy a relaxing cruise along the Danube River after your city tour

Begin with a pickup from your Budapest hotel by your guide, and then travel by air-conditioned minivan toward the famous Chain Bridge, the first structure to connect the two sides of Buda and Pest.

Admire the Hungarian Parliament Building, home to the Holy Crown of Hungary, before heading across the canary-colored Margaret Bridge. From there, travel up to the Buda Castle District, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Explore the hilltop district as your guide fills you in on the rich history of the neighborhood. Walk along the cobblestone pathways and see the bright, tiled roof of Matthias Church and, of course, make a stop at the Royal Palace. Then head to the arcade of Fisherman’s Bastion, which boasts some of the best views of the Danube River and beautiful Pest below. 

After pausing for photos at Gellért Hill, travel back over to Pest to the Central Market Hall, a culinary hub offering delicious spices, meat and cheese all local to Hungary. You’ll also pass the Budapest Zoo and Dohány Street Synagogue. Learn about the iconic statues at Heroes’ Square before heading down the bustling Andrássy Avenue, with glimpses of the Opera House and St Stephen’s Basilica.

Once you’ve wrapped up your 3-hour city tour, leave your guide and travel to the river to hop aboard your cruise at the selected time.

Soak up the incredible views from the fresh air of the upper deck or rest your feet down below in the main cabin as you travel past the citadel and other famous landmarks from the water.

Your cruise will return to its original departure point after an hour, concluding your tour.

good guide on tour - was a cold and windy day but the guide made sure we all were taken care of. A great
way to get acquainted with city so you know what to go back to on your own. Cruise was nice also
however due to weather a little foggy but still a good day. Guide on morning tour had bus take us right
to pier as we were only 2 taking the cruise also. Kind to do that.
