Budapest Parliament 45-Minute Guided Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 45 minutes
On this 45-minute guided tour you’ll visit the interior of the magnificent House of Parliament in Budapest. Built in the Gothic Revival style, it is the third-largest Parliament building in the world. The building was designed by the renowned Hungarian architect, Imre Steindl, whose inspiration was the Palace of Westminster. It stretches along the Pest side of the Danube River from the Chain Bridge to the Margaret Bridge, and is 268 meters in length. Your guide will show you the splendid session room, the richly decorated central staircase, and the great vaulted hall. You’ll have the opportunity to visit the cupola room as well, which houses the Hungarian Crown Jewels and the Hungarian Holy Crown.
Brilliant day out, lasted 45minutes, very knowledgeable. The parliament is breath taking!
Your 4-hour tour begins with a drive from Budapest to Gödöllö, site of the former summer residence of Queen Elisabeth, who was known as Sissi. This palace is the second-largest Baroque chateau in the world, and an estate that has preserved the atmosphere of 19th century royal splendor. Led by your knowledgeable guide, you’ll enjoy a tour of the renovated castle, and walk along the same hallways, on the same staircases, and through the lovely park as the Empress of Austria and Queen of Hungary. At the end of your guided tour, you’ll be transferred back to your central Budapest hotel.
Well organized bus trip to the palace but too much talking by the 3 guides in 4 different translations. The palace is a reconstructed and repainted version of the original rooms. Little is original. Not much historical information about her life

Overall it was an excellent experience, the best we have done in many cities. The host / owner is very knowledgable and professional but at the same time it was a very relaxed at ease experience. The wines were very nice (proper full glasses), especially the desert wine and the cheese and meat platter was done with a lot of thought and care and was very tasty. I no rush experience and we were actually there for 2 hours. You can also purchase the wines, oils and cheeses are available soon.

Cristian (sorry, I’m sure I’m spelling. It wrong ) was a wonderful guide. He took us through the history of the Jewish community of Budapest with some stops in the “street art” scene, local culture and politics, and how ruin bars played a major part in the revival of the entertainment district! If you’re ever in Budapest, even for just a few hours, this is definitely the activity you should be doing.
Lots of fun, great guide, and awesome views of Budapeste at night. Totally worth it.
