About
Much of Budapest’s grand architecture and other landmark sites are located along the river, so a cruise along the Danube is an ideal way to get to know the city. Relax with a drink as you watch the city scenery go by through the large windows. You have the chance to disembark at Margaret Island and explore for 90 minutes until the next boat comes along, or stay on board if you wish.

Very nice all around! Location of boat was easy to find; using scan code and getting on boat was simple. Once on, the boat was clean and there were plenty of headsets on the chairs for people to use. The commentary of the sights in English was very clear and did not ‘drone on’ which was nice. The only point on this is that the commentary was out of sync with the view, ie, it told us about the sight before we got to it. However, this is not a complaint, the view was wonderful and it was a joy to relax, whilst enjoy our complimentary drink (nice touch). The trip was a total of 1 hour 10 mins. This was the perfect amount of time and I would definitely recommend this to start off before sightseeing on foot, it gives you an overview of places you may wish to visit.

There are a zillion sellers that want you to go with their boattour.
As a tourguide I have done most of them.
This company Legenda at dock 7 in front of the Mariott hotel is worth your money.

With the ticket you go on a 1 hour tour (it says 1 hour 10, but that is not the case, only when it stops at the Margaritat island and that is to let people go on or off).
You start with a warm tea with lemon or orange.
After that you can choose any drink you want: champagne, beer, wine, coke (no diet coke), water, etc.

The best thing? They have a great audio system! You put on the headseat and listen to the information in your own language. Even the music fits the different languages. I am Dutch and the way they came up with this idea? The Buda side is a man and the Pest side is a woman (or other way around, I forgot after hearing it so often).

You can get off the boat at the island if you want and only at specific times.
So if you were planning to visit it anyway? Go with this company.
Worth your money.

We really enjoyed learning about the buildings and bridges and even statues dotted along the Danube in Budapest. The tour info on the headphones were really informative and easy to understand. So many languages to choose from too! The complimentary drinks were nice, the staff spoke English and were friendly. The Water Closet/Toilets were very clean, modern and easy to access by stairs. Our toddler fell asleep in his stroller 5 minutes before we arrived and slept until after we de-boarded. #winning - The only things that I wish were different were that the windows had less glare and less streaked. Most of our photos didn't turn out well because of this and... we never stopped on Margaret island as we had expected. Perhaps it was because it was February and cold. Not sure but no explanation was given. I would go on a night cruise next time just for contrast and because Budapest is even prettier at night with all the lights. I would recommend Legenda and just know that this is more of a sit down, relax and listen kind of tour than a photographers paradise kind of thing.

Loved this! Great sights, and fantastic commentary in so many languages. Learnt a lot about Budapest’s history, and we were given 2 complimentary drinks. Option to drop off at Margaret island is great, and I felt the cruise was just the perfect length and great value for money. Highly recommend!!

The boat was lovely and clean, the windows at the sides opened up so it was a lovely temperature and wasn't stuffy, it was also easy to see both sides of the river through the guide. I was shocked to find that not many people were booked so we had enough room to move about if we wanted to have a better view of the other side. The drink was lovely on the way there and the lemonade on the way back was a great touch 👌 the guide headphones were comfortable and it was easy to understand - not crackly or low volume. Good history given and easy to understand which parts were being spoken about. We decided to take the 1.5h stop off at Margaret island and we definitely underestimated the size of the place. We ended up almost missing the boat back. There are also hire pedal bike carts to get around. We power walked most of it as a young couple in their 20's I thought that would have been plenty of time. 😅
I loved the boat trip and it was perfectly run, friendly crew, clean boat, lovely day. I would recommend this tour

This is a full on trip going a long way up the river and back again which gives you a great view of the city. Comfortable seats and some free drinks. Headphones worked very well and the English commentary excellent.

We actually did the early evening cruise as we wanted to see the city under lights. The boat we were on was spacious and had both inside and outside areas. Inside was nice and snug and warm! The price includes a drink onboard but steer clear of the sparkling wine!! The commentary was a little bit basic and didn’t really explain some of the beautiful buildings we were seeing very well. The highlights were the Parliament Building (stunning) and the Royal Palace area high up and dominating one of the hills on the Buda side. The staff were really nice and welcoming. Our cruise was for an hour which we thought was the right amount of time for what we needed. Highly recommend

Just over an hour long in a fully enclosed panoramic boat with comfortable seating and really good audio commentary via headphones in multiple languages. Also a drink is included in the price.

Felt very professional and well organized. Boat was smart and staff were smart and helpful. It was a clear but very cold day when we went but with the lower deck fully enclosed with a glass canopy you are warm and comfortable and still get great views.

A good way to see the city from the river and learn about the many interesting places to visit. Not too expensive either at around €12 per person albeit one of ours was @ child so slightly cheaper

My family and I took the 70 minute daytime cruise in late December and loved it - it's a great way to get a brief overview of the city, and learn a bit of history. The headphones available in different languages is an excellent way to cater to the needs of all travellers.
I'm very glad we did the tour, and next time I visit Budapest we'll probably do a longer cruise with Legenda.

This is such a nice way to see the city and stay warm too during the winter months as the boat has panoramic windows all over so yiu can see from any angle and it’s well heated. The seats are comfy and as the boat is so big it wasn’t crowded at all. It’s an just over and hour long and the commentary is really easy to follow and detailed which is great for kids too. Really recommend!
