What You Can Expect

Budapest Sightseeing Tour with Parliament House Visit

Budapest Sightseeing Tour

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.

We were picked up promptly from our hotel and taken to a central meeting area where our guide Ingrid showed us to our bus with another couple. After a short drive around the city with lots of information we headed to the parliament building for our tour there. This lasted for around 40 minutes with an English speaking guide who was very informative. Once over Ingrid waited outside for us to escort us to another bus to meet with another guide and more couples.

The next part of our tour lasted a couple of hours with lots of information given and included visiting various parts of the city including Heroes Square, Geller Hill and Castle Hill, great area for pictures.

Would definitely recommend booking a tour like this, you could go on one of the hop-on hop-off bus tours but wouldve get as much in-depth information.

This day trip is a must for anyone visiting Budapest. It is an incredible experience that I would recommend for the early stages of your trip. Its so insightful you can go ahead and make a short list of the places you want to go back to in your own time. I do however have to complaints about the trip: 1) The woman talking to us didn't seem very happy to be with us that day, but the gentleman that came along for the second half of the trip was completely different. And 2) The bus wasn't really up for sightseeing per se, more like a pick-up coach, since taking pictures required some effort in the none panoramic views.

Other than that, the city of Budapest is so magical these two minor (very minor) setbacks weren't much of a problem. Definitely would recommend.
