First in Europe!Budapest – as you can only see it with us Until now you could choose between touring our beautiful capital on four wheels or marvelling at the city from the deck of a pleasure boat. Now you don’t need to choose: RiverRide is a special sightseeing tour on which you can see the sights of Budapest from a comfortable seat, first along its busy streets, and then, from one second to the next – to the gasps of some of your fellow travellers – you splash into the lapping water of the river.

This is quite a short tour (about 1.5 hours) and the main selling point is that you see a little of the city from land and river quite quickly. We enjoyed the trip, which suited the limited amount of time we had available. The amphibious...More
