Picked up at our hotel but taken to an office, not directly to the Parliament, where we waited for a coach to take us to the Parliament about 5 minutes drive away. The company's tour guide, Ingrid was excellent, giving us plenty of information about the building's construction, war time damage and importance to the Hungarian People. Magnificent inside.

The actual tour of Parliament was great. The organization of the tour was very poor. We were picked up at our hotel and taken to an office location where we boarded a bus. We waited about half an hour before the bus left. We could have walked to Parliament quicker than that. Then we got to Parliament, the guide had to buy our tickets and we waited again. I would highly recommend a tour of Parliament but not with Viator. Book in advance and you can buy tickets directly from Parliament.

Dear Sir,we found the tour of the parliament building interesting,but the coordination of entering the building and subsequent escorting through the building to start the tour I found fragmented.
The guide was proficient and the general dialogue was interesting,but too many people in the tour party,which meant you could not always grasp what the tour guide was describing if you were at the back of the queue of the tourists en route.
The escort to and from the boat from the riverside was successful too.
Sincerely

Very pleased with the pick up at our hotel and the tour of the Budapest Parliament Tour. The Parliament building tour is very popular and I was glad we booked a couple of weeks in advance via Viator. Architecture is amazing in this building completed in 1902. St. Stephen's crown is on display complete with military guards. Very impressive guided tour.

This was an interesting tour once inside the building, which was given by the official guide from Parliament, NOT the tour operator. I could have paid directly through the Parliament website for half the price. It was poor value for money because the tour didn't involve much more. We began by waiting for a long time on the coach before departing as people arrived late, then it was a very short drive to Parliament, we did have a short commentary whilst driving. We were given a 5 minute talk outside the building. Hardly worth the extra price, so my advice is book it directly.

Excellent tour. Pick up by cab from hotel. The hour tour of the Parliament building takes you through a guilded staircase, a view of the upper or lower - mirror image assembly chamber, the inner chamber with crown, orb, sceptre and sword, a view of the grand entrance. The guide Patricia was really helpful inside the Parliament building there's a very good audio guide and an official guide shepherds the group around - also very good. Recommended.

Rip off alert! This is NOT a 1 hour tour of the parliament. Once they gather you at a central location there is a lame tour of the city while the bus inches its way through traffic. At the parliament building you do skip the lines but you are passed off to a regular tour. Nothing special.

Very well organised- taxi picked us up on time, took us to tourist company office, and then we went by minibus with others to Parliament. Guide very good throughout and explained everything that was going to happen. She got us into the queue for the tour conducted by Parliament's own guides but came with us and explained some other details and took photos of us at the top of the grand stair case. Amazing building - particularly under the dome with chandelier and fascinating statues of import Hungarian people over the years. Lots of nooks and crannies in building and some of the vey old building bricks could easily be seen. Well worth the time although the amount of time we had to spend at the end where they displayed all the history of building/plans etc was limited.
