Passing under the bridges and seeing the city from another perspective. I missed the tour around the island of Margarita. The audio guide explained things about the monuments and buildings although the translation into Spanish was a bit poor and the person who narrated it sometimes could not be understood well. I would have preferred the audio guide to be on a separate device and not have to use my smartphone and install an app.

Staff was very helpful to reschedule the booking for the next day due to flight delay, decent size vessel with all safety measures, the tour lasted for about an hour, went past the Hungarian parliament building, the chain bridge and more. We did the evening tour, the natural light fading added to a nice experience overall... Strongly recommended!!!

Tour emozionante in notturna: occorre arrivare ben prima di 30 min dall'imbarco visto il grande afflusso di persone. Una delle più belle esperienze a Budapest

Clear directions to get to the sight. Unfortunately we were running late so went directly tp Purpleliner, showed ticket and was able to get on. It was relaxing way to start our visit to Budapest. The weather and views was magnificent.

Cruise Along the Danube

Marvel at the wonderful sights of Budapest on the Danube as you enjoy this 1-hour cruise. See the hidden nature of the riverbanks from this sightseeing cruise that one can only see from the water. Bridges over the River Danube were built in many rounds. Take in the fascinating architecture of the Chain Bridge and the Margaret Bridge. Passing by Margaret Island will allow you to see locals walking and jogging on this calm and relaxing favorite getaway within the city.

Sail Past Famous Bridges

The evening sightseeing cruise will continue under two famous bridges, including the Chain Bridge with illuminated guardian lions on either street side. See the beauty of the Buda castle, the residence of Hungarian Kings, and the opulence of the Matthias Church, characterized by its neo-Gothic style. On the Buda side of the river, you can see the statue of Szent Gellért after whom the hill was named. On top of the hill, you will see the beautiful Hungarian woman, Citadella, standing proud with her arms open. Imagine these sights in the soft glow of the lights at night.
