An absolutely first class tour with a guide who knew her subject inside out. It was a small group (7) in both English and German - which presented her with no problems at all. She brought together all the facts and figures we had no completely understood after a visit to Vienna a year earlier, plus all the additional information she provided on the bus there and back. We cannot compliment Clara enough! And of course the palace really is worth seeing - especially with snow all around!

Great trip to Gödöllö

We had a great trip to Gödöllö and although there were only two of us, we got the full program. Our guide already started the tour in Budapest and since we had the meeting point in the city center, it was already a small, separate city tour. There was an extra stop shortly before the actual destination, we were taken to a beautiful park with a statue of Sisi. The tour of the castle was also correspondingly individual and personal, questions were answered in detail and individual time requests were also taken into account during the entire excursion including the return journey. We would book this excursion again at any time via GetYourGuide and can absolutely recommend the organizer. We also booked 2 other events, which also went smoothly and were well organized.
