Full description
Visit the second largest Baroque Palace of the world in Gödöllő, only 30 minutes from Budapest. You'll be picked up from your hotel and whisked away to the favorite residence of Elisabeth Sisi and Francis Joseph, 19th century King and Queen of Hungary. Enjoy wandering through the opulent interiors as your guide tells of the secrets of the private life, the hidden doors, bedrooms, and lovers of the royal couple. Tour the huge leafy gardens of the Habsburg Chateau, as you imagine times under the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Next, relax and check out the scenery on a drive through the countryside to a traditional Hungarian farm. You will be welcomed with a Hungarian delicacy pogácsa, the special savory scone and with a shot of the national welcome drink, pálinka. Meet the horsemen and experience the landscape at a gentler pace onboard a magical Carriage Ride. Finally, watch a traditional Lipizzaner Horse show before you return to downtown Budapest.

We were a bit disappointed with the palace exhibits. Not much about Sisi except for the gift shop. Didn't get to tour "the huge leafy gardens". Beautiful Hungarian farm and horses. Nice welcome with the national drink and scone. The Carriage Ride was fast and far from "magical". The traditional Lipizzaner Horse show was interesting.

Great experience. Royal palace and horse show both very good.

The Royal Palace was very interesting, enhanced by the good explanations from our guide. The entire visit to the horse facility very enjoyable from the welcome refreshments, carriage ride through to the excellent show showing the use of horses through the ages to the stable visit. This tour also gave us the chance to see a little more of Hungary than the city of Budapest. We recommend this tour to any others visiting the area if they have any interest in these topics.

WORTH THE EXPENSE AND THE EFFORT

We were picked up from the hotel on time by the organisers and taken to the meeting point. The trip to Godollo was a pleasant experience, as well the visit itself to the Palace. Explanation by our Guide was fine. The visit to the Horse Farm was also something worth experiencing as was the show. All in all the event was worth the expense and the effort.
