Budapest Super Saver: Private Entrance to Széchenyi Spa with Optional Massage plus Danube River Dinner Cruise
Begin your day in Budapest by skipping the line at the Széchenyi Spa, the city’s largest and warmest thermal spa with a stunning neo-baroque interior. A host will lead you to a private changing cabin so you can suit up for your day of relaxation.
Explore the 18 pools, filled with spring-fed waters at varying temperatures. Dip in the large outdoor swimming pool with a temperature of 84 degrees Fahrenheit (27 degrees Celsius), sit in the steam rooms indoors or enjoy a shower with your included Széchenyi Spa gift of shampoo and shower gel. For an extra treat with this all-day pass, upgrade to a 20-minute aromatherapy massage.
Budapest Danube River Dinner Cruise (1.5 Hours)
After a relaxing day at the spa, continue your evening with a romantic cruise along the Danube River. Enjoy soft candlelight on board as you sip Champagne and wine, beer or a soft drink. Then, when the time comes, help yourself to a hot buffet of traditional Hungarian dishes (see the Itinerary for a sample menu).
Then, take in views of Budapest’s UNESCO World Heritage–listed panorama. Pass the historical Chain Bridge, Buda Castle and the stunning Parliament Building, set aglow at night. The Rajko Folk Orchestra will keep the mood festive with live music.

This was a good tour . It would be best if the tour group organizers inform where to go once you reachSzechenyi (there is a Help desk on the main entrance). I needed to call and ask where I should go and if the voucher is as good as the ticket itself. For the dinner, they should give direction/address for the meeting point. The cruise and dinner was fun and entertaining.
The spa is a great way to spend a few hours or even a day, busy but spacious enough to not feel crowded out, the ticket provides a changing room which is recommended, the evening Danube cruise was great, good service and a good selection of food, which whilst basic traditional fayre had enough variety to keep it interesting and there was plenty of it.
Excellent value. The baths are a wonderful experience. You need to wear a swimming cap to use the swimming pool, but the other pools allow you in without one. The private changing cubicle was a much nicer experience than using the communal changing areas. Worth the extra money to hire a robe too! A little more info on the cruise would have been useful. The 6.30 start to the evening means that you either have to walk to the venue, which is actually a theatre and not the dock, or take a taxi which is a lot more expensive and takes longer at that time, due to the heavy traffic. You then walk on some uneven ground, with a hostess, to get to the boat. However, once inside it is a lovely evening of music, sightseeing and good food. I would certainly recommend it.
We had a wonderful day and went early so had good seats and lounged all day with massages booked a little after midday. We took in some crisps and drinks we brought on route but there is a bar by the hot baths outside to purchase from also.
The outdoor spa was nice. Not overcrowded. I would definitely suggest securing your valuables. We had a changing room to store our clothes.I caught someone trying to steal my towel off the lounger with my belongings. Bring your own towel, flip flops and hair dryer if you can. Massage was nice. The best part was the Danube River cruise. We did this on a different day than the spa. Th meal was buffet style and the food was good. There is a strolling band which goes from table to table. Beware, dont get caught and end up giving them a tip just for talking with them. Overall a good experience.
This is one of those bucket-list tours to take a look at some major attractions. We went on Christmas Day, and the crowds at Széchenyi and on the cruise were overwhelming. Food was fine, but you have to wait in line for it. The price makes it good value. Next time, Id prefer to pay up for a more personal experience.
Great tour, the meeting point is fairly easy to find and there is someone outside to guide you..the cruise itself takes you past all the highlights and plenty of room on the boat to move around. The food is not al a carte but nice enough with plenty to choose from. As for the Spa this is s must do!
The spa was terrific, five stars. However, we missed our dinner cruise because we had a difficult time finding the meeting point and got there too late. Two taxi cab drivers did not know where the Budapest Palace, the meeting point was.
