What You Can Expect

Danube River Lunch Cruise

Budapest Danube Lunch Cruise

Your tour will begin at the Danube Palace, where a friendly guide will escort you to your cruise boat about a 5-minute walk away. You’ll be welcomed aboard with a glass of Sparkling wine as you take off on a 90-minute excursion across the water. The Danube is renowned for its world-class views, flowing straight through the center of Hungary’s capital city.

Your glass of Sparkling wine will be followed by a choice of wine, beer or a soft drink. Then sit back and admire the panorama of the city, listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Along the way you’ll spot landmarks like the Hungarian House of Parliament, the Gellért Baths and the National Theatre. Don’t forget to snap a photo of the grand sprawl of the Royal Castle on the Buda side of the city.

If you select the lunch option, you’ll sample traditional Hungarian dishes, served buffet-style on board. (A sample menu can be found below in the Itinerary section.) The chef, a world-renowned food sculptor, adds a creative flair to the meal.

This was an excellent tour,
We were collected by a private taxi on time and was given a great commentary whilst on the way to the vessel.
We were given a glass of champagne on boarding and was shown to our table.
Once we set sail we were offered a free drink either Beer, Wine.
The buffet was quite extensive with varied food on table .
Lots of salad, fresh food and chicken, beef, pork.
The sweets were really good and a great selection.
The tour lasted approx. 1.5 hours and went through 6 bridges with great views of the Parliament buildings, Citadel, Churches etc with running commentary.
I would thoroughly recommend this tour.

Excellent trip, we were lucky to have fantastic sunshine which made for some fabulous views of the sites from the boat. The buffet was far better than I had expected, good standard of food which was hot and plentiful. The hosts that guided us from the meeting point to the boat were not overly friendly and did not provide much information however once on the boat our waiter was excellent. There was some commentary in English but this was difficult to hear as they continued to play music at the same time. The cruise was roughly 90 mins in duration as the 20min walk from the meeting point to boat seemed to be part of the 2hr trip. Definitely worth including to get some great views of Budapest.

Wonderful cruise through downtown on the Danube and enjoying a wonderful Hungarian buffet. The city takes on a completely different look from the water. Not to be missed.
