It gave much more as we expected. Everyone should try this amazing tour in different centuries. By the end you'll appreciate more the current era you live in it.
Every little piece has been developed in detail therefore result is so much enjoyable. Sound effects and 360-degree view boost the experience. And the fact we walk from one scene to the other while traveling back to the history on exactly the same place by VR enhance more the difference between now and the past.
Do not hesitate to try it out, you'll definitely enjoy it!

It was an amazing experience I really recommend to both Hungarians and non-Hungarians as well.
It is a good summary of Hungarian history in a nutshell, good overview before graduation. I would also recommend it to schoolchildren to bring them closer to history.
The tour reminded me to a lot of films seen earlier. My favorite part of the tour was the attack by the Turkish troop which was similar to "Stars of Eger". I was wondering how people get to the upper levels of that strange "building moved on wheels" they used for the attack.
1849 reminded me on the film and the book "The baron's sons" (A kőszívű ember fiai).
At the 1956 scene the broken star on the ground was a little bit strange how it can be lightening if it is already broken and is in parts.
The weather is unfortunately critical at this tour being an outdoor program, but we had the chance that it didn't rain.

Interesting visualization of different time periods with extra narration on Hungarian history. The Turkish time visualization has some really interesting features. The staff is nice, the tour is well organized.

Well organized and really nothing to complain. We were with group of children 10+ years old. This is a very good way to get acquainted to the history of the country. Despite the bad weather, both kids and adults were happy with the tour.

We received the tour as a birthday gift, and decided to pick the last warm weekend to attend. Milán, the tour guide was very patient and nice. The trip was very well organized, the equipment worked without a problem, and the VR stops were unforgettable.

The route of the tour is perfect for locals and tourists too, they have chosen the places nicely. The tour guide was a littly bit out of the mood, he could have been nicer, but I guess we just wasn’t lucky with him, the other employees at the office were really nice. About the experience: it was very unique, the grafics of the virtual world needs a lot of work and improvements, it is like an outdated video game, but still the story and the historical accuracy makes the tour really enjoyable. I would say it is not really for children, due to the heavy war scenes.

Wonderful trip back in time. Definitely recommended for anyone who interested in history. Kind and supportive tour lead.
One area for improvement: not all glasses are new enough to enjoy fully each video.

Even if I love history and I was excited for this tour in the end I feel that It was lacking. First 10-15 minutes were fun but then it was rather boring perhaps VR still needs some time as it is the new thing in the market. Also the "guide" or perhaps the person that was with us was not really interacting no side stories or anything when we were walking between locations.

As I own an Oculus Go, I was really curious what the tour would have in store for us. I must say I wasn't disappointed. There were about 6 or 7 locations where we stopped and watched scenes from the history of the Buda castle: starting with its construction, through the Ottoman siege all the way to the 1956 revolution. I loved the fact that they managed to perfectly blend reality with the VR scenes. After taking off the headset, you actually felt like having been there. I must point out at this point that these were animations. This wasn't like a CGI movie! In between the scenes we had our headphones on (mostly one) and there were brief stories about the history of the castle, Budapest and Hungary to keep us entertained. Overall it was an excellent experience, which I recommend to everyone. This is not a tour you'll be taking any time soon. If one doesn't want to forget what they've learned about Hungarian history in these 1.5 hours, the guys have an English book for sale for about 5 EUR.
