Important InfoInfo
You'll tour inside the magnificent neo-Gothic Parliament building, home of the Holy Hungarian Crown. Your guide will lead you through the splendid Session Room, the impressive central staircase and the wonderful Great Vaulted Hall. Along the way, you'll be entertained and informed by your guide's anecdotal and historical commentary.

The Parliament building was built between 1885 and 1902, and was for a time the largest parliamentary building in the world. With 691 rooms and staircases stretching for more than 12 miles (20 kilometers), the building is topped by an elegant dome soaring 226 feet (69 meters) into the sky.

After your visit to one of Budapest's finest architectural achievements, sit back and relax on your city tour. You'll cross the Danube via Margaret Bridge and take a drive to the Royal Castle on the Buda side of the city. Here you will take a walk along the Fishermen's Bastion and step inside Matthias Church.

After a photo stop at the Citadel, you'll cross Elizabeth Bridge and drive by City Park to take a walk at Heroes' Square. Passing by the Opera and St. Stephen's Basilica, the tour concludes at the Hotel Intercontinental.

Our guide was amazing, patient and allowed plenty of time for photos and questions! This was a great tour around an amazing city, and included a very fun guided tour of the inside of the Parliament. Don't hesitate to book this if you're only in Budapest for a few days and want to see as much as possible!

Visited a lot of places and the guide was good and knew her stuff. A multilingual guide is not as easy to follow as they switch between languages, but nevertheless this was an excellent tour. It would have been difficult to cover so much ground on ones own.

Great tour and very well organised. My hotel booked the pick up for me and it was a private taxi that was there early waiting for me. The parliament house visit was great. The sightseeing tour was also good but the guide was slightly annoying - was trying too hard i think bless him!! Would recommend.

Great tour if you dont have much time in Budapest .Not only do you see Parliament House , a must see in itself,but also all the major points of interestaround town. I took this tour primarily to see parliament hose as I had been in town for a couple of days already and had seen a lot of the major sites but was impressed with the coverage of the site seeing part of the tour. Highly recommend it to anyone going to Budapest.

It was a hot day, we did not spend much time to know the outside of the Paliament house much during walking toward to the entery. We had hard time to catch the English words from the English tour guide whom was provided by the government.

The main tour came after the Parliament tour, which was handed over to the guides working for the Parliament. After the Parliament tour, which is mostly following around a tour guide speaking into a sort of one-way walkietalkie, it was time to get on the bus and get off/on when there were sights to see. People were free to leave the tour to go on their own ways at any time. The tour was a bit rushed, but was able to see and hear about the main historical sights.

If you're on the fence about which tour to take, this one definitely highlights a lot of the main attractions. Parliament is beautiful and has a great history...the city tour includes riding on an air-conditioned bus thank was very hot that day between stops at places like Heroes Square, Castle Hill, etc. Everything you see on this tour is worth your time. It makes for an enjoyable day, packing in loads of sights, but not overwhelming you. It's like the perfect taste to get you excited to do more walking around on your own.

A very organised and informative afternoon,the tour of Parliament was excellent.The sightseeing minibus tour around both Buda and Pest was comprehensive giving us on our first day a real overview of the attractions of Budapest. All the guides were engaging and informative and their level of English was excellent.I would highly recommend this tour.

We had a taxi pick us up and take us to our coach bus where we were met by our guide. Went straight to the Parliament House which was amazing inside and out. The Parliament House is huge and is one of the most beautiful buildings I have even seen especially at night when it is lit up. After the Parliament tour we did a nice scenic driving tour of both Buda and Pest.

Could not have wished for a smoother transition from our hotel to the tour coach. We were picked up on time and rode in a very comfortable coach with a very informative and witty zsa zsa like tour director. Had ample opportunity to see the sights as well as taking photos. Can highly recommend this tour !
