Highlights
    What to Expect
    Make your own way to the departure jetty on the Danube River for your private cruise, arriving at the time agreed for your departure.

    Then, meet your expert guide and be shown aboard your boat for your cruise. Small and elegant, the polished mahogany cruiser accommodates up to 10 passengers, and boasts an outdoor seating deck and indoor cabin with comfortable leather seats.

    Settle on board and hear about the wine you’ll be tasting and your cruise route. Then, with an expert skipper at the helm, start your cruise. Your boat is smaller and nippier than the typical tourist boats, so you’ll be closer to the water and speed past the bigger vessels, so you can tick through even more sights.

    Learn how Budapest’s riverbanks boast UNESCO World Heritage status for their beautiful architecture, and waft past top Budapest attractions such as the Hungarian Parliament Building, leafy Margaret Island and the National Theater.

    As you cruise, sample four good quality Hungarian wines specially chosen to complement the views. Enjoy a glass of each variety as your guide explains how and where they’re produced. While you sip, swap notes on their flavors, and nibble on savory pogácsa.

    During your journey, keep your camera handy for the mighty Chain Bridge and Castle District, with the fairy-tale turrets of the Fisherman’s Bastion, Buda Castle and Matthias Church. Other must-sees include the poignant Shoes on the Danube sculptures commemorating the Hungarian Jews shot by the river here in 1944.

    After toasting the sights, enjoy the last views from the water as your boat returns to dock. Your 1.5-hour cruise ends when you say goodbye to your guide and step back ashore.

    Our group of 9 had a really fantastic time cruising up and down the Danube while tasting four Hungarian wines with our expert guide, Barbara. It's an amazing way to see the city from a different angle, and with your friends tasting lovely Hungarian wines....More
