What people are saying about Gödöllő

An interesting tour.

it was an interesting tour, but the destination is maybe not that spectacular as compared to other things in Hungary. The horse show was also pleasant, but maybe not that spectacular. A fine tour, but not spectacular.

Very well organized! Great car, responsible driver, very nice and well informed guide. Individual questions were answered and walked through the castle at our pace. Coffee and cake were delicious.
