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.
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.
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
English is our first language and we also speak some Spanish. We signed up for the English tour but found the English guide very difficult to understand so joined the Spanish tour. It was well done and interesting.
Value for money. Tour guide very educated and enthusiastic. Tour of baroque Palace was thorough. Horse show was exciting and unmissable. Will do it again next year.
