Legenda City Cruises , Budapest, kikötő, es, Jane Haining rkp. 7, 1052 Hungary

Pier 7

This activity will end right where it started.
Book your desired departure time, and travel independently to the departure pier in central Budapest. Then, take a seat aboard the comfortable, glass-enclosed Duna Bella boat. The boat's glass cover is retracted in good weather, so you can enjoy the open air.

Then, view Budapest from the water as you sail along the river. Admire the UNESCO-listed Buda Castle district and Royal Palace, and float under the Elizabeth Bridge.

Learn about the landmarks from the onboard commentary (available in 30 languages), and enjoy the onboard WiFi and your choice of a glass of Champagne, wine, beer, soda, or mineral water, plus a glass of ‘Duna Bella’ lemonade.

Cruise under the Chain Bridge past the Hungarian Parliament to Margaret Island, set in the middle of the Danube. If you wish, step ashore on the island when your boat docks, and enjoy 1.5 hours’ free time before catching the next Duna Bella boat back to the starting pier. Perhaps stroll around the island's beautiful parks, admiring must-sees like the water tower, Japanese Garden, medieval ruins, or musical fountain.

Alternatively, stay aboard and finish your 70-minute cruise without disembarking, admiring the riversides again before your experience ends at the departure pier.

Buda and Pest from the river.
, Aug 2022
It was such a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. The boat was extremely comfortable, the audio guide both clear and informative. You are offered two drinks during the cruise, both served in real glasses - a nice touch. It’s great to see both Buda and Pest from the Danube.

Lovely boat trip. Nice sights and great service. 2 free drinks as we went around. And the audio guide was nice and informative.
Fantastic trip

Nice tour of Budapest

Great way to see the city...

Great way to see the city with a different perspective. You can also get out on the island and walk around for 1.5 hours and grab the next boat back.
Great way to see Budapest
, Jul 2022
Seeing all the buildings along the river with the excellent commentary will be really memorable. The guys who looked after us were great and served us complimentary drinks. The stop at Margaret Island was lovely, the short walk actually took us an hour and a half as we kept stopping for photos. A green shady oasis in the middle of the busy city was wonderful
Great way to see the city
, Jul 2022
Great way to see the city and learn about the history from the water. Audio tour could be a little longer and include more details but really enjoyed it and the complimentary beverages on a hot day!

Wonderfull, relaxing.
, Jun 2022
Found cruising on the river really relaxing and wonderfull. I was delighted to see the parlament close up, was my first time. Next time I'll book the dinner cruise for sure to see Budapest in the night.
Great Tour
, Jun 2022
Very nice tour. Get off at the Margaret Island and rent a bike (25% coupon offered by the tour guides). Bikes around the island. Got off to see what we wanted to see and hopped back on the boat at the next pick up.
Nice cruise plus Margaret island.
, Jun 2022
Good sites to see. You get to see the most iconic sites of Budapest in the boat. They give you a drink and take you to Margaret island.
Nice tour

River cruise

Great trip really informative audio guide a great way to see the sights of Budapest. Unexpected opportunity to visit Margaret Island well worth a visit . Free drinks included staff friendly on a well organised trip.
Great value, informative trip in large clean boat.
, May 2022
A large, quiet and airy boat with recorded information about the history along the Danube. A drink was included in the price and you could disembark at Margaret island if you wanted and get a later boat to return. Excellent value for money.
Great boat, but not what was expected
, May 2022
Great trip, however hosts were that enthusiastic, and we were given one free drink but thought we would be able to buy drinks more but weren't allowed.
Informative but go to island to explore if time allows
, May 2022
Very informative cruise. Interesting. We had a 5pm cruise in May and did not realise there was an optional drop off at Margit island. In hindsight we might have got off and looked round the island before getting our return boat back. However we had a dinner reservation to rush for. Tip - go to the island!
Beautiful boat trip
, May 2022
Great boat trip with beautiful views of Buda Castle and the Hungarian Parliament. It’s also worth getting off at St Margaret’s Island for a couple of hours
, May 2022

Highly recommended!
, May 2022
I thoroughly enjoyed this boat cruise. The audio guide was very informative without being too detailed. It was great to see the city from the Danube and the stop off at Margaret island was an unexpected bonus - worth a visit and 90 mins is enough to enjoy the whole island. The map with highlights was also very helpful. Two drinks are included in the ticket which was nice and if the weather is nice you’re in for a treat!
