Detailed description

We drive from Budapest to Gödöllő to visit Sisi’s favourite palace in Hungary. Sisi was the wife of Francis Joseph, the Habsburg emperor and she loved staying in Gödöllő. The Palace was given to the royal couple as a gift from Hungary for their coronation. The visit to the palace brings you back to the 19th century, walking along the elegant rooms you will learn about the history of the building, and its most famous residents.
We will walk in the peaceful and beautiful garden of the Palace. You can drink a coffee or eat some cake in the café of the palace.
We take a walk on the main square of the small town and before returning to Budapest we visit the nicely refurbished Royal Waiting Room.
We drive back to Budapest.

    About me

    My name is Magdi Pelech. I am a licenced Budapest tour guide. Would you like to have a unique private tour experience? Do you feel like having a Budapest sightseeing tour with an entusiastic guide?

    “A friend and I visited Budapest in May of 2015 when we were there for a conference. We took a couple of extra days at the beginning to see Budapest, so looked for a tour guide and found Magdi. Her profile was intriguing and we booked a private tour with her. Magdi was sensational!! She picked us up at the hotel and we spent 8 hours each of the next 2 days seeing first the Buda side of the river and then the Pest side. Her personal experience growing up, being educated in and working in Budapest was shared with us as we visited so many, many sites. It was though she knew us and was so in tune with what we liked and wanted to see, we simply walked along with her and enjoyed her vast knowledge of the city, the country and it’s complex history. She has enormous energy, exudes a lively spirit and we learned while having fun. Magdi took us to local places and knew exactly where to go and what to do to see everything. We rode buses and trams and underground trams and the Metro. My friend and I both have rheumatoid arthritis and without saying anything to her she slowed our pace or picked it up and always made sure we were on firm footing while we walked. Anyone considering a trip to Budapest will get so much more out of the visit if they see Budapest with Magdi. You will never regret it and you will have wonderful memories. We’ve since done other tours, and no one can hold a candle to what Magdi offers, because she gives of herself. Budapest will always have a place in my heart because of her!!”
