Enjoy a beautiful and relaxing introduction to Budapest on this 1-hour, evening sightseeing cruise. See the many famous buildings along the river (the Banks of the Danube is a UNESCO World Heritage Site) with a beverage in hand. Not guided tour, but brochure available. Audioguide as extra available. 
  • Admire Budapest’s skyline and landmarks on an Danube River evening cruise
  • Sit back on the open or inner deck to view the Parliament, bridges, and more
  • Enjoy a welcome drink when you embark
  • Choose from departure times to see the sights at sunset or lit up at night
What to Expect
When booking, choose between departures times, with timings dependent on the season. Head to the river dock near Pest’s Szent Istvan Park to board the comfortable boat and enjoy a seasonal welcome drink or orange juice. Then, settle on the interior deck, which is heated in winter and air-conditioned in summer, or the open deck, where blankets are available. The boat also offers complimentary Wi-Fi and a bar where you can purchase drinks at your own expense. Then, admire Budapest’s UNESCO-listed Danube embankments while you cruise. Glide by the Hungarian Parliament, Buda district, and Chain Bridge, and on later evening departures, view the night-time illuminations. Your elegant evening experience finishes back at the starting dock.

They have different times throughout the day and evening for different departures. Check with them for times, but I believe they adhere to a strict schedule.

Hi, I have no idea, didn't see any onboard. I think you should call and ask. Each cruise service has a phone number you can call or ask the clerk at your hotel to call them
