Full description

Your 4-hour tour begins with a drive from Budapest to Gödöllö, site of the former summer residence of Queen Elisabeth, who was known as Sissi. This palace is the second-largest Baroque chateau in the world, and an estate that has preserved the atmosphere of 19th century royal splendor. Led by your knowledgeable guide, you’ll enjoy a tour of the renovated castle, and walk along the same hallways, on the same staircases, and through the lovely park as the Empress of Austria and Queen of Hungary.

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.

A taxi picked us up directly from the hotel and took us to the meeting place outside the Intercontinental hotel, where the excursion departs from. The guide Cristina speaks Italian well and was very good she knows the history of Budapest and Sissi well, it was not a mere exposition of facts, which were told to us in a participatory way, even with anecdotes that the official history often ignores. In 30 minutes you arrive in Gödöllo, after a tour of the park the visit of the Castle began at 10 and lasts about 2 hours. The castle for Sissi lovers is a must! A must see.

All of 10, with one exception; - The person who called me by phone to specify the date and place of collection did not speak Spanish. As my knowledge of English is not good, it was difficult for me to enter the place and now a couple of calls. The guide in Spanish picked me up at the company headquarters.
