Had a great time! Paid a little extra for hotel pickup which was totally worth it. Was well organized and the guide did a good job keeping us informed. The palace is beautiful of course and we didn’t feel rushed at all. Our guide split her time between English and German and I think it would have been better to have one dedicated person per language since there were long waits in between when she switched and we didn’t all get all the same facts and she was more comfortable speaking German. The guide did a great job though as switching back and forth would be difficult. Definitely book this tour as it was nice to get out of the city and see a little more of Hungary and to learn why Queen Sisi was so important to the Hungarians.

I loved this whole tour the guide was amazing and told us a lot of details. When we were riding the bus to the activities the guide told us everything about the things we passed. You'll enter the parliament by yourself but the guide will get you your tickets (tha guide got them for us) the parliament was goregeous and the guide was funny and talkative

Impressive inside staircase and hallways. Was not expecting the regal or grandeur of those red carpeted staircases. It doesn’t have the elegant decor like Versailles, but we’ll worth a tour to see the inside of this beautiful building.

Easiest way to see budapest and cover all the best tourist spots. Buses come very frequently so you don't have to wait too long.

Great tour. Very interesting and the Parliament building was stunning. Enjoyed it a lot!
