Saw this with our family and absolutely loved it. Smart to buy tickets on line and print them out before you come, but beware of credit card fraud. We bought tickets 4 months ago, walked in with our tickets five minutes before the tour and...More

The coronation Crown of St Stephen is on display and seeing the change of guards is in itself worth the tour !!

Must see landmark in Budapest. We saw it from afar, by boat, and up close. See it at night also if possible.

Over the last few years there have been many improvements to the area surrounding Parliament and it is now a very pleasant place to wander around. The tour inside is also very good, get there early though.

Parliament building was gorgeous! The entire area is full of lovely statues and there are guards/officers present who patrol the area, and sometimes they display parades. The area is so clean and tidy complete with fountains and places to sit. It’s also very near the...More

This is the most beautiful building! The tour was great as well. It's amazing how cheap it was to visit such an important political buidling. The tour was super informative and it was fun to just walk around outside and take pictures.

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention

I would check with the tour operator. I booked ours via TripAdvisor (Viator) and they were good about answering email questions. See if they have a link for questions by email or a phone number you can call.
