Budapest Wine Tasting Cruise

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
Combine the riverside sights of Budapest with wine tastings on this relaxing 2 hour early evening cruise! Sail along the Danube and watch the landmarks as you taste delicious numbers from some of Hungary's renowned organic wineries such as Szajki or Tier Tokaj. Treat your tastebuds to seven tastings of Hungarian wines as you enjoy magnificent views over Parliament House, the Chain Bridge, Royal Palace and other monuments. With further drinks available to buy from the onboard bar, it’s the perfect start to a magical Budapest evening!
  • Combine sightseeing and wine on an evening Danube cruise in Budapest
  • Taste seven Hungarian wines, including Tokaj, as you view the city sights
  • See the Parliament, Chain Bridge, and Gellert Hill draped in lights
  • Snacks, hotel transfers, and onboard bar (own expense) for full experience
What to Expect
Book your preferred departure time and travel from your Budapest hotel by air-conditioned vehicle to the dock on the Danube River.
Take a seat on the open upper deck or beside the picture windows on the lower deck, and absorb the UNESCO World Heritage Site Danube riverbanks as your boat sets sail.
Then, enjoy tastings of seven local wines, such as Tokaj and Szajki, all produced additive-free by some of Hungary’s leading organic winemakers. Savor each variety and nibble on snacks to cleanse your palate between each glass.
As you sip, watch the sunset (depending on selected departure) and view Budapest’s landmarks bathed in evening lights. Admire the illuminated Parliament, Gellert Baths, and Fisherman’s Bastion, and have your camera ready as you pass under the floodlit Chain Bridge.
If you wish, purchase additional onboard drinks, such as sweet dessert wines, before your experience ends with a hotel drop-off.

Dear Lancastc! We will keep in mind that in the future we will make another wine tasting package which would contain cheese and fruit as you mentioned, not only snacks. Thank you very much for your feedback.

It just doesn't get much better than riding on the Danube, drinking local Hungarian wines and photographing the gorgeous night lights of Budapest.
