We paid £82 for this tour with Viator a taxi picked us up from our hotel and literally drove us round the corner to the Intercontinental Hotel where we waited at least 15 minutes. We then boarded a coach and were driven 5 minutes round the corner to the Parliament Building. We were given our tickets and put in a queue. Our Viator guide then left and that was that!!?? We then joined an English tour provided to everyone and anyone by the building itself. The building is beautiful and a "must see" for sure. We paid £82.00 for this with Viator - if we had simply booked the same tour that we went on with the English speaking guide at the same time via the Parliament Building website directly it would have cost us £36.33 !!!!! We literally have no idea what we paid the extra £50 for??? Evrything is so close and we could have walked there in 5 minutes ourselves. Please book this attraction directly and save yourselves a lot of money!!! You cannot go round on your own and must join a tour but that is all provided anyway for less than half the price.

Staff was friendly. Prepared you for the tour that would be provided at the parliament. Easy way to start tour.

This was a beautiful building to see inside and out. We were able to see the change of the guard which was fun. The tour was informative and our guide was interesting and allowed plenty of time for questions.

The tour did get off to a rocky start as we had signed up for a hotel pickup which did not happen. There seemed to be mass confusion with the local guides at the pickup point. For the start of the tour I would have only given this a 1 star. Once we got to the Parliment, the local guide that took us through the actual building was fabulous, very professional, explanations were clear, English was very good. Next time I would check out just buying the tickets online.

Although this does not probably come up on most people's lists as a great tour stop, it is a must see in Budapest. I have done it several times and enjoyed it each time.

Another great tour. Crowded at the Parliament House, but our tour guide hustled us through the crowds and we saw the entire building in a reasonable time. The building was impressive and well worth a tour if you have never seen it before.

This was a great tour. We learned a lot about the Budapest Parliament. The tour was the right length, nd our group was not too big. We could her everything the tour guide told us and enjoyed the tour immensely. I recommend this tour.

Amazing tour! Stunning view inside the golden parliament! Also, great thank you to the quick city tour we have before reaching the parliament, we were also given a great history by the bus tour guide too!

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We were picked up at our hotel to meet up with a bus that took us to the Parliment. Seeing the inside of this beautiful building really made our trip to Budapest complete. Highly recommend this tour. Book early I think it sells out!

This was a very good way to tour the Parliament House. They pickup us up at our hotel right on time. Introduced us to our guide who gave us a tour and information about the Parliament House from the outside then got our tickets and helped us join an English speaking tour. It was a seamless way to be sure you got to tour this important site in Budapest.

An impressive building that is a bit over the top for a parliament house. I was a beautiful monument to behold. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and receptive to questions.
• Submitted 09 Oct 2017
Since you cannot get inside and roam around on your own, highly recommend this tour. However, our guide at the central meeting point and who took us to the entry point was rather disorganized. She handed us off to an official guide inside, who was excellent. This is one of the outstanding highlights of any first-time visit to Budapest!

Not to be missed. We had an excellent tour guide and were given plenty of time to take photographs. An amazing building.

If you think it looks spectacular from the outside, you should see the inside! I had a 9.15am pick-up for the guided tour of Parliament House. It is the second largest in Europe and third largest in the world and well worth the admission price. The building is a magnificent example of gothic architecture. Décor is very ornate with hand-made silk carpets, stained glass, wood carvings, elaborate woodwork, murals, tiles, lots of gilding and chandeliers. Truly a WOW experience. We were allowed entry into the lower house chambers, and had an excellent commentary. Under the main dome is the only place that photography is not allowed because its where the Hungarian crown is stored the crown itself is rather underwhelming but the guards put on an impressive show and every now and again, shouting and twirling their shiny silver swords. Enjoyed the walk back along the Danube afterwards and passed the shoes along the Danube memorial. It honours the people mainly Budapest Jews who were killed by fascist Hungarian Arrow Cross militiamen during WWII. They were ordered to take off their shoes, and were shot at the edge of the water so that their bodies fell into the river. Make sure you also see the building illuminated in the evening.
