This activity will end right where it started.
Book your preferred departure time, and travel independently to the departure pier in central Budapest.

Admire the glass-topped vessel 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 Wi-Fi.

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 experience ends when the boat arrives back at the departure pier.

Unable to locate dock
Daniel_B
, Jun 2022
As instructed on the description we used a bolt taxi to Portum Lines we attempted to put dock 42 into the search for the taxi but wasn’t successful so we just got dropped off at the Portum Lines. From there we couldn’t find dock 42, we found 0 1 and 2 then found 6 after a 10 minute walk and gave up that we were far away from where we should be

we took the night cruise which starts at 10:15. Always try to get seats on the upper deck. We didn't know this, so by the time we reached the upper deck, almost all the seats were occupied. Anyways, it was just an unforgettable experience

Must go if you are in Budapest. If you don’t want to spend too much, this trip without the dinner is good option else the one with dinner will also be a great experience.

Seeing the amazing architecture of Budapest all lit up at night from the river is just magical. I can’t think of a better way to introduce yourself to the gorgeous city.

The night view from the cruise boat was amazing and made me speechless. I could see all the historic building beautifully lit up in front of my eyes. The audio guide was nicely synched with the view as we go along and very informative. I learnt a lot about Budapest history on this cruise. All the staff are very friendly and efficient too. I would definitely recommend this night cruise.

Tickets not valid on the boat.
Amelia_H
, Apr 2022
We booked 7 tickets for this river cruise for 8pm on 6th April. We arrived at the correct dock at 7:35 as we wanted to be early. We waited until 8:15 and no boat had arrived so we started trying to contact the boat company (Portum lines). We rang their phone number and they told us that no boat had arrived yet as it was due at 8:45. We were annoyed at the time being incorrect but we waited anyway. Once the boat finally arrived we presented our tickets but were refused entry as out tickets “were not valid for that trip” as our tickets said 8pm and this was an 8:45 boat. As previously stated, no boats arrived at 8pm. We were told by the people that worked on the boat that they don’t know why we were sold those tickets as they didn’t even have an 8pm cruise that day, only 8:45. So our tickets were not valid at all, despite us paying over £15 for them in advance. We then had to pay full price for new tickets for the boat as they did not accept the ones that we pre purchased, despite it not being out fault that we were told the wrong time. We also paid for taxis to the port so didn’t want to just leave without seeing the cruise. If someone could contact me regarding this issue that would be great as we would like a refund for the fake tickets we were sold. Thanks.

Nice view, but average experience

The sights were beautiful. Blankets against the cold. Champagne. But no Dutch or English audio, which made the tour just sitting and staring outside, instead of listening to a guide. That was disappointing.

Was an amazing boat ride! Do the golden hour cruise (just see when sunset is) as you’ll get both pictures with the beautiful sunset and then be able to see everything at night. Best tour!!
