Full description
Enjoy the views of the Hungarian countryside on a 30-kilometer drive that takes you from Budapest to the Royal Palace in Gödöllő. This was at one time the summer residence of Habsburg Emperor and Hungarian King Franz Joseph and his beautiful and charismatic wife, Sisi. On this half-day private tour you’ll have the opportunity to see the interior of the palace, and experience the opulence of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. You’ll also visit a traditional farm, where you’ll be welcomed with a pogácsa (scone) and pálinka (a special Hungarian spirit). After enjoying a traditional horse show, you’ll take a pleasant carriage ride through the woods.

Hätte mehr aus dem Leben der Menschen vor Ort erwartet, und aus dem Leben der Sissi hier in Ungarn, und nicht aus welcher Fabrik die Kacheln auf dem Dach kommen, wer denn Stuhl für das Museum verliehen hat oder was hier alles Nachbildungen sind. Wir haben schon viele informativen privattouren gemacht, diese würde ich nicht mehr machen

An interesting tour.

it was an interesting tour, but the destination is maybe not that spectacular as compared to other things in Hungary. The horse show was also pleasant, but maybe not that spectacular. A fine tour, but not spectacular.
