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.

I literally have never seen anything like this. Ever. The idea is genius, to see an already beautiful area (Buda Castle) and then even to see it in 7 different historical times? Are you kidding me? It felt like I got a present, I would recommend it to everyone who's visiting Budapest, let these talented, wonderful guys amaze you!

Very unique experience and a realistic history lesson for the whole family. The staff was very friendly and very well prepared. This was by far the best virtual reality experience I have ever had, much much better than those roller coaster things.
Would definitely recommend!

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.

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experience: it was very unique, the grafics of the virtual world needs a lot of work and improvements, it is like an outdated video game, but still the story and the historical accuracy makes the tour really enjoyable.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.
