Description

Is it a bus? Is it a boat? Actually it's both! The River Ride is the perfect way to make a splash in Budapest as you see the sights. Board this flaming yellow fun bus and see St Steven’s Basilika, Hero's Square, Parliament, the Citadel and more from your amphibious vehicle!

Being a tourist has never been so much fun! The River Ride transforms from a bus into a boat, sweeping you around this stunning city for a sightseeing tour like no other.

This amphibious fun bus will make you see everything in a new light through giant panoramic windows! See the 150-year-old towers of St. Steven’s Basilika soaring into the sky. See the Academy of Sciences and the famed fortification atop Gellért Hill.

Drive past The Dohány Street Synagogue - Europe's biggest synagogue. Wave at the crowds outside the Opera House, designed by Miklós Ybl. Drive through Hero's Square, flanked by the Museum of Fine Arts and the Palace of Art and see the homage to Hungary's greatest leaders.

Then, just when you thought it couldn't get more interesting, lose the wheels and splash into the river at the quay. Now it's time to cruise the Danube!
