Many famous opera solist take different parts in Budapest national opera. Awesome experience if you like such stuff. Personally I liked it more then Wien's one, since it's much more stylish and much less touristy.

So sad that we are not able to visit the concert hall as it is now under renovation. But the tour is still recommended to join. The guide can speak in fluent and clear English. And there is a mini Opera concert included. It is an interesting experience.

Despite the fact that we couldn't visit the concert hall due to the renovations, I found the tour of this magnificent building to be very interesting and certainly worthwhile. The guide was very pleasant and spoke very clearly at all times. The short aria performance at the end of the tour was a real treat for the eyes as well as the ears.

My wife and I on holiday went to the Opera House and bought tickets for the 4 pm guided tour and mini concert with two opera singers. It was wonderful. The guide was extremely good with excellent English and a good sense of humour. The opera singers were sublime. This is a must visit place for anyone on holiday in Budapest!

Stunning music in a beautiful setting, highlight of a lifetime. Hearing Mozart in a chamber he had played in was awe inspiring, perfect sound,
