This was fast paced tour of both walking and by bus so you see a lot of sights in a short time. The Parliament house tour is incrediable and not to be missed. Our guide was very good and had grown up during the communist era and had many interesting stories on the history of Budapest. Unfortunately the weather that day was cold and rainy so we had to move in and out to avoid the rain and wind.
This tour was conducted by three different people. Someone took us over to the Parliament. Then someone from the Parliament did the interior tour of the Parliament. During this we wore earphones, which did have static at short times. As I understand it only people from the Parliament can conduct this tour. Finally someone else gave us a tour of the rest of the city. All personnel were professional and informative. I would recommend this tour.
I had a short holiday due to work but able to see most things memorable around budapest during this tour.Guide Estelle who accompanied us in parliament was very friendly and knowledgeable.After the parliament tour,city visit started with Francis.Despite his arthritis,he took us up and down hill and give good information about BUDA and Pest.Thank you for making this short trip memorable.
A very well operated tour.. Our guide Agnes and Ferenc were terrific.. Especially Ferenc is such a wonderful gentleman.. He took us on a lovely walking tour of the Buda side and is so well informed.. The Parliament Building is stunning.. But it definitely looks better in pictures or in videos.. A tour not to be missed..
Picked up at hotel which was great. On time. Two guides. One took us to Parliament House where we had an English tour. Another guide took us on the city tour. Most of us left the tour near the end at St. Matthews to do some shopping. Good tour.
Great tour. The Parliament House was so beautiful! It was definitely my favor building in Budapest. The other sites were great too. However, it was a cloudy day and we weren't able to get the best pics.

The easiest way to see the parliament. The tour lets you to bypass the big line and get in first.
The city tour introduces you to all major sites .
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.
Perfect. Very impressive and complete tour. I did enjoy it to the max
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.
Was good tour. Nice intro to viator, thought other tours would be as good. Was wrong.

It was great to visit most of the popular attractions in Budapest.
Excellent all round. Guide was very knowledgeable and spoke good English.
Visit to Parliament House a highlight of Budapest visit. Guide, Susannah, was knowledgable and thorough. Recommend to anyone as good overall orientation to city's best attractions
A nicely paced tour of Budapest that included most of the main attractions. Our main tour guide was very knowledgeable and easy to understand; a local guide was provided for the Parliament sub-tour. Since the weather was clear that day, this tour was a complete success.
First rate introduction, overview of the city with an inside tour of the Parliament House. The Parliament House should not be missed with its exceptional workmanship and architectural detail.
Excellent tour around the parliament building, well worth a visit. And also the sightseeing tour which was very informative, could have done with a little more time at the castle, but we understand a schedule has to be kept
the tour was very good and enlightening. Fery well organized
I will recomend every turist to take this your.
A great tour of the Parliament. Tour guide at the Parliament was very soft spoken. Needs to speak louder to groups. City tour was nice but would have been nice to include St. Matthias from the inside.
