Lajta Ship Museum Tours in Budpest


I understand one can tour the Lajta museum ship on the Danube in Budapest. I am not finding the details online for September 2019. I have a number of questions.

  1. Is this available in September 2019?
  2. Is the dinner cruise on the museum ship or some other river vessel?
  3. What is the cost of the museum ship tour and of the dinner cruise?
  4. How far in advance should/can this event be booked?

Thank you!

I would definitely recommend Legenda Dinner Boat cruise . Make sure yo go in the evening to see the Parliament Building lit up at night. Hopefully, you are going in early September and they do not have to put up the plastic windows. We were so fortunate to have a warm early June evening.

Ive been on a couple of the river dinner ships. In cool weather they are good. In warmer weather they can be less enjoyable. Normally I would skip such things, but the views of the city are magnificient at night.
