I have done river cruises in a few cities and this one is right up there for interest and originality.

after spending all day walking around we enjoyed the chance to sit and see the spectacular views as we cruised along with a nice seat and a cold beer.

This was a good take for tired feet at the end of a day of touring.

2 Free Drinks on the River Cruise
“They provided one beverage on the way to Margaret island (water, soft drinks, beer or wine) and then on the way back they provided their “lemonade”, which was basically sprite with lemon, but very refreshing. Both drinks hit the spot on a hot day. We were able to see more Budapest sights than we had just walking around. Would highly recommend their sightseeing cruise!” / Tourist from USA

“Never had a better boat cruise, top notch! Not the most expensive either which is always good for someone budgeting their travels.” / Tourist from UK
“We enjoyed our night cruise with legenda, one hour. It was more expensive then other cruises but a nice boat, good commentary and staff spoke several languages.” / Tourist from New Zealand
“Boats are an awesome way to get an overview of Budapest, but the price was a bit on the high side. Nice boats though, very clean, crew professional.” / Tourist from US
Guided Tours with Audio Commentary in 30 Languages
“Legenda does and excellent job with video screens at easily viewed points throughout the boat, showing the interiors of the buildings you are passing without obstructing the views. Headsets provide the audio describing the architecture and history in a multitude of languages – just select your language, adjust the volume, and you are ready to enjoy. ” / Tourist from US
Helpful Crew on the Sightseeing Boat
“This is a wonderful way to see Budapest as it is truly beautiful from the water. The crew on the boat were very helpful coming around to serve drinks and making sure our headset was set on the right language.” / Tourist from USA
