What people are saying about Gödöllő
An absolutely first class tour with a guide who knew her subject inside out. It was a small group (7) in both English and German - which presented her with no problems at all. She brought together all the facts and figures we had no completely understood after a visit to Vienna a year earlier, plus all the additional information she provided on the bus there and back. We cannot compliment Clara enough! And of course the palace really is worth seeing - especially with snow all around!
Our guide André has a deep knowledge of Hungary. I learned a lot about the past and present of this beautiful country. His French is impeccable, to the point that I asked him at what age he arrived in Hungary, he replied with a smile that he was born in Hungary. The time spent with him was a great part of our trip to Budapest. He made the visit to this castle very informative. If you are offered their services, say yes.
Beautiful palace, and kind staff.
We enjoyed the loan of a wheelchair that allowed our elderly parent to visit too. I had to help the person controlling the tickets to scan my ticket-mobil, but it was with a smile and good will.
The collection looked very nice and was clearly exhibited. Only outside the castle there were many buildings that had fallen and were due for a restoration. That was very unfortunate.
Easy access from Budapest to Godollo (Metro + train). Too bad the stables and the theater are closed. Very nice site, only downside prohibited photos in the palace.
