The Hungarian state company operates 1-hour sightseeing cruises on the Danube. Boats depart from Vigadó tér (on the Pest waterfront, between the Erzsébet Bridge and the Chain Bridge, near the Budapest Marriott hotel), daily and hourly during the high season from May 1 to the end of September. From the end of September to November 1 and March 21 to the end of April, they are daily, but the frequency is less. Rates are 2,990 Ft for adults, 2,490 Ft for students with ISIC card, and 1,490 Ft for children 14 and under, free for children 2 and under. For something different, MAHART also offers evening cruises with or without dinner included from 7:30pm to 9:30pm. If this floats your boat, they sail daily during high season; in low season October through November, sailings are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Buffet dinner and cruise is 6,990 Ft for adults and 3,490 Ft for children 15 and under, children 5 and under are free. Cruise only 2,990 Ft for adults and 1,490 Ft for children 15 and under.
