    2. Budapest: Gödöllő Royal Castle & Pest City Park Private Tour

    Head out on the path of Queen Sissy, and stop at Godollo Royal Summer Castle for a private guided tour of the interior.  This was the favorite countryside castle of royal family, nobles and aristocrats. Walk along the renovated castle with historic and original furnitures, and learn about the splendor of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. The palace became the symbol of independent Hungarian statehood, and, as a residential center it had a political significance of it own. It was Empress Elisabeth (1837-1898) who specially loved staying here, and the Hungarian personnel and neighborhood of the Palace always warmly welcomed her. Following her tragic death, a memorial park adjoining the upper garden was built. Visit the newly opened section and exhibition of the castle, the nice castle park and the surroundings. On the way back stop at Budapest City Park and walk the courtyards of Vajdahun...

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.
