This was our favorite tour in Hungary. The Palace tour was quick but really covered all we would want to see. The farm was wonderful and the horse show truly amazing. We had plenty of time to look around. Don't miss this great day trip.

I had a 5-hour tour along with another American couple with our guide Marta to Godollo. Marta is simply fantastic, a living history book of Hungary. She was the driver/guide. On the way out of the city, she pointed out so many interesting buildings and told so many stories. Then we got stories about the Soviet era in Hungary before the fall of Berlin Wall and her personal experience in this terrible time. Once we were inside the castle, she had an interesting story on almost every ordinary looking object that I would normally quickly walk passing by. I learned so much about Sissi's life and Hungarian history in general from her. Afterwards we had a very entertaining local horse show 10 mins down the road don't miss this one either. I absolutely enjoyed my time with Marta. She is so caring and considerate that she offers additional/essential information other tour guide wouldn't bother to tell. Thanks a lot Marta!

We LOVED this visit. Godollo Palace is lovely. The horse show and farm trip not on the palace grounds but nearby is really in a beautiful spot, and the horse show is amazing! Our guide was the absolute best - so personable, warm and friendly. We recommend this!

It was a really enjoyable tour which I would recommend to learn more about the history of Hungary. It was short and concise and the tour guide was really knowledgeable.

The Godollo Palace was extraordinary! The palace is in excellent condition. Beautiful!
But the great pleasant surprise was the added visit to the horse farm. The horse show was outstanding! Fantastic exhibition of horsemanship!

What a very pleasant way to spend 5/6 hours in Budapest. I thoroughly enjoyed this outing. I was collected by a taxi at my hotel and driven in to town to meet our guide for the day. There was only two of us on this trip. Myself and another young lady named Megan from the USA. Our guide/driver was Marta and she was wonderful. She was such a nice, kind lady. Her knowledge of local history and storytelling was wonderful. The tour of the Palace was interesting and very informative. We had time to sit enjoy a cuppa and a slice of traditional cake which was yummy! Onward to the Horse Show. This was again great to see. The horsemanship and show was magnificent. We also got to taste a local drink down the hatch in one!!... and a traditional savoury scone. We then toured the stables and a museum. Marta then, very kindly dropped us off wherever we wanted. I would highly recommend this tour.

After several phone calls thanks to the concierge at the Marriott Hotel and when they rang the local number, as provided on the documentation, they were given another number to ring etc, once over that problem transport did arrive at the hotel and eventually we left on the tour. The tour guide took us through Godollo Palace but it was rushed at the end due to time constraints. The traditional Farm Trip with Horse Show and Carriage was entertaining. The documentation stated that we would be dropped back to our hotel but this was not the case and we were dropped back in the middle of the city centre and left to find our own way back to our hotel.

This was a great trip and our guide was very informative. I'm so glad I went. I loved learning about Queen Elizabeth's time spent at Godollo Palace. The Horse Farm was beautiful, they greeted us with Palinka and scones, gave us a carriage ride around the farm and then a horse show demonstrating skills Hungarians are known for. It was a nice retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city. I just wish it had been a bit longer. We arrived back in Budapest around 2:00pm and had to figure out what to do from there. Also, the tour company leaves you off in central Budapest vs. taking you back to your hotel where they picked you up, so you have to figure out how to get back on your own.

This tour was very enjoyable and it gave us the opportunity to see some of the countryside outside of Budapest. Both Godollo Palace and the horse show was worth it. The tour guide did an excellent job.

This tour was well worth the visit but spoilt by bad pick up arrangements and not enough time given to the palace visit before dashing off to the farm visit. Also a little time for refreshments would have been nice at the fatm trip. Would be worth doing both as seperate trips for more time at each.

The Palace was lovely and The Horse show was interesting with beautiful grounds. For the length of this tour, we should have had more then just a savory scone to eat.

I was collected from my hotel at 8.30am, making sure I was down in the lobby with time to spare. When we got to the meeting point, where the guide joined us, the rest of the group was waiting bar 2 people. We then waited 40 minutes for these people who never turned up. This was beyond annoying as that was 40 minutes we lost on a tour we had paid for. When we got to Godollo Palace we only had about 45 minutes to see it and as the guide had a group of English speaking and Italian speaking people everything had to be told twice so this held the group up further. We had to leave to get to the farm at 11am so basically the trip to the palace was a non event. The horse show was great and the cart ride fine, not very long. If you can get the train to Godollo go to the palace on your own. I certainly wouldn't recommend this tour to anyone.

Mediocre guide. However, an interesting tour. The palace was the highlight of the tour. The farm trip and horse show were so so.

We're collected at correct time, tour guide was informative but unfortunately we missed most of the trip as were left behind by the tour at the first stop in the middle of nowhere completely lost no one could speak English and we had no idea how to get home. No response from viator for 3 days :((
