Discover why Budapest is called the Pearl of the Danube aboard the exclusive Gróf Széchényi ship. The boat takes you beneath six bridges of Budapest while introducing you to Budapest's most famous sights.

Hop on board and set out to see sights like the mighty House of Parliament, the Chain Bridge, the Buda Castle, the Fisherman’s Bastion up on the Hill of Buda, and the Gellért mountain, crowned by the majestic Citadella.

The ship's wooden interior, designer carpets, and on-board bar add a sense of comfort and luxury to your cruise. Don't forget to explore the lower floor for the engine room during your time on board.

Clear recommendation, as it is very good value for money. The actual tour did not start at 7:00 p.m., but only at 7:30 p.m., but covered all the sights in 1.5 hours, so there was ample opportunity to see the hotspots that were illuminated when dusk fell to photograph. At night, the already magnificent buildings appear even more magnificent. The drink prices on board are also moderate - I only paid €2.50 for a 0.5 l lager beer (= 990 HUF on 03.06.22). All in all a clear recommendation and gladly again at any time! PS: The online voucher was also the ticket for me, ie I didn't have to exchange it, as another participant wrote.

I use your service for the first time. I liked the price, the same tickets are sold twice as expensive at the pier. We were afraid not to find the place of departure and explain that we have an electronic ticket, because everything is very bad with English, and I had no connection , I took a screenshot of the destination, it contains the berth number and the carrier's company, the most important thing of course is to screen the CODE, everything went well, they approached the pier there are large signs with the berth number or a letter, we had BERTH number 3, next to the monument to shoes , the route is also in the application, if you look closely. we arrived early 40 minutes before departure, we started launching 15 minutes before departure, it’s better to come up like this if you want to take places on an open holly, the waiter at the entrance reads your code from the phone and everything;) we bought without champagne) for beautiful photos, buy a ticket with it;) or you can buy at

A bit awkward at first, as you first have to exchange the voucher for tickets in the office in the city, then you go to the boat with a guide and then crowd around the next boat with a hundred other guests. The table is then assigned to you. The explanations in English via loudspeakers are also difficult to understand, since it is quite noisy inside due to the bar operation etc. Nevertheless it is a very good offer for the price, you can see a lot of the city, the journey takes 90 minutes, the drink prices on board are ok and there is space at the round tables, the toilets were also ok. You could also go to the outside deck at any time to take photos.
