Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your host meets you in central Budapest before leading you to the boat awaiting you on the Danube. Head to the upper deck for fresh air or take a seat by the large viewing windows of the deck down below.

As you take off along the water, you are poured a flight of Hungarian wines. Each tasting promises the flavourful notes from the country’s best organic winemakers produced without additives.

As you sip and sample, lookout to enjoy the view of Budapest’s panorama. See the majestic domes of the Gellért Baths, the Parliament Building, and the regal glow of the Royal Palace. Snap some photos as you sail under the Chain Bridge, and spot additional landmarks like the arcade of Fisherman’s Bastion and the Citadel. Then continue to wine taste, cleansing your palette with a serving of Hungarian snacks, included with this ticket.

After you've sampled all of the wines, you’re welcome to purchase additional drinks on board. Sweet dessert wines are available, among others. Then make your final toast as the boat returns to land at its original departure point.

Alternatively, choose a craft beer or cocktail cruise to suit your preferences. Soft drinks are available on request.

Lovely cruise. Booked for an hour and we were on for over 2. Likely due to boat change due to virus. Excellent entertainment. Lovely welcome drink and a very cheap bar on board.

Friendly staff very helpful. The quartet very good. Actual cruise for us could have been a bit shorter (about half an hour less) but for those doing wine tasting and dinner probably about right

We had an enjoyable evening on the cocktail river cruise. The 2 cocktails we had a Mojito and a pina colada were pretty good. Scenery lovely. We sat in the top deck for the best view as didn’t want to sit inside. Maybe nice to have some blankets upstairs as was pretty cold.

Outstanding deal on a very nice boat. The views were amazing! Dress warmly in the winter/spring because it will be cold at night and you’ll want to be able to go out on deck.
