About RiverRide
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 was ok i suppose. The novelty of travelling very slowly in a floating bus soon wears off. It was a bit overhyped and the fanfare of music before and after "the big splash" just made it seem more boring. Something to do while stuck...More

Crazy and innovative idea to combine bus and boat. Nice normal tourist tour which ends to an unreal experience in river Donau. Nice!

Fabulous experience! We took the last bus of the day (17:00), which made it possible to see the sunset in Budapest from a totally different point of view (from the bus in the Danube). It doesn't seem to be a very long ride actually (roughly...More
