What You Can Expect

Budapest Late-Night Dinner Cruise on the Danube

Budapest Late Night Dinner Cruise

Your tour will begin at either the Danube Palace or Budai Vígado, depending on your departure date. (Please check confirmation voucher for details.) Your local host will then lead you to the Danube River, where your late night cruise awaits you.

You’ll be greeted on board with candlelight and a glass of Sparkling wine, wine or beer. If you’ve selected the dinner option, you can make your way to the buffet to sample a delicious offering of traditional Hungarian dishes. (A sample menu is listed in the Itinerary section.)

While you dine, take in the sparkling views of Budapest’s panorama at night, a noted UNESCO World Heritage site. Then grab your drink and climb to the upper deck for an open-air view. You’ll spot the glowing Chain Bridge, the Art Nouveau architecture of the Gellert Baths, the Freedom Monument atop Mount Gellert and the grand sprawl of Buda Castle.

We were waiting to start an organised tour in a few days and had free time. This was on our itinerary on the tour but decided to go with Viator instead, and we are so glad we did.
We had hotel pickup and drop off, an amazing late night cruise with champagne, live string quartet playing and hardly anyone one board.
A very relaxing cruise with stunning views of a very beautiful city. Thanks for this one Viator..

Great way to see this beautiful city at night. Get there early so you can make it to the upper deck and have a spot along the rail.

Simply stunning. We opted for the hotel pick up which was the right thing to do as we jumped the queue and avoided the walk. Great trip the buildings come to life at night.

The trip on the Danube to see Budapest at night was worth the cost. This city at night is spectacular. The two drink option was great to have while sailing along. There was outdoor seating as well as indoor if the weather cooperates. They even had live musical entertainment.

We did not do the dinner part. We had round trip pick-up from our hotel and did the 2 drinks with the cruise. Our pick-up from hotel was totally on time and the cruise was amazing with all the lights. We really enjoyed it. Someone was right there after the cruise to take us back to the hotel.

We had this scheduled on our last night. wonderful! The Danube in Budapest is beautiful and with the lights turned on the buildings...magical. The food was very good...and a lot of it! It was a perfect way to end our vacation.

This cruise was worth every penny! the boat was huge so though it was busy- you didnt notice. We instantly regretted not paying for the meal too as it smelt divine and was all laid out like a fancy restraunt on the lower deck. There was continuous knowledge coming from the speakers which was a plus!
