Very well organised tours. We just showed up thinking we could go in. The only tour we could get was two hours later but it was well worth it! Amazing architecture, interesting history, incredibly clean, and a wonderful tour guide who had lots of stories, facts, and a few jokes to tell along the way. Beautiful setting as well. Plenty...

We were there just a week in to the new visitor's center opening. Although the tour costs a fair amount of money for just a 45 minute tour, seeing the inner workings of another country's government, especially one with a history of both communism and democracy, was worth it. If you can't do a tour inside, make sure to look... More

We visited the parliament building on a city tour. It's an amazing building visible from many parts if the city but perhaps best seen from a boat trip on the Danube. Our guide said it was modelled on the British Houses of Parliament. Make sure you get to see it.

We have not being inside the Parliament, but both, City Bus Tour and boat tour take you past it. It is a beautiful building with some unique molding and sculptures. Can’t say enough about the splendor of the building.

Truly impressive building on the bank of the Danube. Walk around it during the day and to see if lit up after dark is a must.

Really amazing building.Located directly on the bank of the Danube and it is the first thing that catches your eyes when you come in the city. Unmatched outside and even more amazing beauty inside.

I had no idea how ornate it would be on the inside. The tour is definitely worth doing. Check for tour times/languages before you go. If you have to wait for your tour, it is a short walk on the Danube to see the shoe memorial.

I saw parliament on my first day at Budapest. It's quite a marvel - on my last night while we were looking for restaurants we happened to see it from afar and just had to go back there. The place is so beutifully lit after dark that it's almost like a whole other building.

Maybe being British I'm simply desensitised to the Houses of Parliament and I'm doing them a disservice with this, but to me it seemed that the Parliament was a stunning building without real equal from any similar building I've seen. Situated on the Danube, at sunset with the light shining on it and glimmering off the water in front it's... More
