Budapest with a historical power boat

Boating and Sailing tour in Budapest

Tour Price : €99 Duration : 1 hour Languages: english Discount: The price is the total price for the group.

It is an hour long tour down and up on the river from the Ujpesti bay to the Szabadsag bridge. If it is windy and the Danube is to wavy we should slow down. In this case the tour is a little bit longer but the price is the same.

On the river I can show you everything what could be seen: the bridges, the castle, the parliament, the Gellert hill, the liberty statute, the Fishermen Bastion, the Matthias church, the universities, the Margit island.

In fact you can do the same round with an average sightseeing boat for half price, but traveling with and oldtimer gives you a special chance to feel the history.

I do advice this tour as a part of a business trip, or if you spend only a day or two here in Budapest. I am usually asked to show Budapest to VIP guests. There was nobody who was not satisfied with it.  


I have a quite rare oldtimer wooden powerboat from the early 40's. She was a race boat until the 60's. When I bought her in the 90's the river police still had not the chance to reach me. She is 134 kgs and 4,1 meters (300 pounds and 13 feet 5 inches). She could use a 80 horsepower engine on a race but for a daily cruise we will use a 25 HP engine because of the carrying capacity limit.

If you cruise with this historical boat, you will never forget it. 

It is a perfect tour for two, or for two with one or two little child. 

The carrying capacity of the boat apart me is 200kgs (441 pounds). If you and your friends/family sum is more I do advise two shorter tours. The tour depends on the weather. If it is too windy or stormy we adjourn the tour. If you are not familiar with small boats please do not hesitate to ask for advices. Do not afraid, she is a safe boat but you should wear the right clothes for your comfort.

Depending on the weather we can cruise from April to October. If you prefer adventure we can travel with a sliding rigger boat as well or with a kayak.
