A taxi picked us up directly from the hotel and took us to the meeting place outside the Intercontinental hotel, where the excursion departs from. The guide Cristina speaks Italian well and was very good she knows the history of Budapest and Sissi well, it was not a mere exposition of facts, which were told to us in a participatory way, even with anecdotes that the official history often ignores. In 30 minutes you arrive in Gödöllo, after a tour of the park the visit of the Castle began at 10 and lasts about 2 hours. The castle for Sissi lovers is a must! A must see.

Very nice tour, a must for Sissi fans. Very small group of 4 people, great tour guide, everything works great. Great

Phenomenal tour by a very charismatic and knowledgeful tour guide, would recommend 100%!

Klara was a wonderful guide with so much passion for Sissi. Well spent tour.
