Make the most of an evening in Budapest and save your feet with this Danube River sightseeing-and-wine cruise. Admire the city’s riverside landmarks, including the Parliament and Buda Castle, from the comfort of a boat, and enjoy tastings of seven Hungarian wines, including Tokaj, as you sail. Choose from two departures to suit you, with snacks and hotel transfers included for added enjoyment and comfort.
What to Expect
Book your preferred departure time and travel from your Budapest hotel by air-conditioned vehicle to the dock on the Danube River.

Take a seat on the open upper deck or beside the picture windows on the lower deck, and absorb the UNESCO World Heritage Site Danube riverbanks as your boat sets sail.

Then, enjoy tastings of seven local wines, such as Tokaj and Szajki, all produced additive-free by some of Hungary’s leading organic winemakers. Savor each variety and nibble on snacks to cleanse your palate between each glass.

As you sip, watch the sunset (depending on selected departure) and view Budapest’s landmarks bathed in evening lights. Admire the illuminated Parliament, Gellert Baths, and Fisherman’s Bastion, and have your camera ready as you pass under the floodlit Chain Bridge.

If you wish, purchase additional onboard drinks, such as sweet dessert wines, before your experience ends with a hotel drop-off.
