The Basics

A Danube River cruise is a highlight of many Budapest sightseeing tours, and options include lunch or dinner cruises, wine-tasting cruises, and moonlight cocktail cruises. Alternatively, head out of the city to explore the scenic towns of the Danube Bend, including Esztergom, Visegrad, and Szentendre, before cruising back to Budapest along the river.

Budapest Danube River Sightseeing Night Cruise by Legenda City Cruises
Lovely evening with gorgeous views of important Budapest landmarks! The boat was well maintained and the views were very good from both sides of the boat. We appreciated the headphone commentary in different languages so you could know what you were looking at.

70 minutes Budapest Danube Sightseeing Cruise
Budapest in night was beatiful. We were out of the words. I think the time should be longer. But 70 minutes is also OK. Sight seeing was wonderful.

Budapest Danube Bend Full-Day Tour with Lunch
The tour was one of the best tours i have been since exploring Europe in 2019. Mr. Attila was very knowledgeable and very professional in all aspects. The views were magnificent and unforgettable. The tour was very educational in terms of history and architecture. I would certainly return for more opportunities to see more tours with Mr. Attila.
