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. At the end of your guided tour, you’ll be transferred back to your central Budapest hotel.

    Well organized bus trip to the palace but too much talking by the 3 guides in 4 different translations. The palace is a reconstructed and repainted version of the original rooms. Little is original. Not much historical information about her life

What people are saying about Gödöllő

Fabulous ! Better than my expectation . I always take “get your guide “ cause it is a guarantee, but this was better . A taxi took us from our apt to the group meeting point where the best comfortable bus was waiting for us . Raws of 3 seats instead of 4 so they were large as in business class .heater on during the way and our path to the palace was matched with the guided explaining of the contexts we were passed throw . Once there all was easy and illustrated buy GILDA . A Lovely Ungheria lady who dedicated her full morning to us . At the end she left us free to buy souvenirs and a very good as cheap local cake in their patisserie . The tour is HARDLY RECOMANDED

Hotel pickup worked great, was even on time at the hotel. Very nice and competent guide. You can tell that he enjoys his job. We were very well informed with little jokes in between. The tour in the castle lasted almost 2 hours. Unfortunately there was no time left for a visit to the café or to take a closer look at the gardens. But all in all a highly recommended excursion. On the way to the castle you get a small view of some of the sights.

Everything very well organized. Pick up by taxi from the hotel worked great. The trip was very nice and interesting, since the sights that were on the way were also explained very precisely. Gödöllö, a must for all Sissi fans. In the footsteps of Maria Theresia, Sissi and Franz Josef.

Arrangement like transportation etc. good, punctual. The subject is suitably lively, not congested. Guided by excellent and pleasant; the guide knew a lot about things.
