    Hello,

    On September 27th, I ordered a voucher for a full trip of this kind and paid the price of 32 EUR via the Internet with my credit card, but I have not received any voucher or anything of the sort, just an email saying that I had indeed been charged 32 EUR and by whom, as well as stating my purchase confirmation number. What should I do now

    • Hello Zbigniew,
      I would like to confirm that your booking has been made successfully, and an automatic confirmation email has been sent to you already. This confirmation email acts as your digital voucher (no voucher is attached to the email). Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at info [at] budacastlebudapest [dot] com

      • Hello,

        Thank you for your fast response. Do I have to go to a ticket counter at the Castle to swap this voucher for a ticket, or should I simply go to the meeting point at Disz ter with this email and show it to the guide ?

        Thank you in advance.

        • Hello Zbigniew,
          yes, you can simply go to the meeting point, and show the confirmation email to the tour guide. Have a nice time in Budapest!

  4. Hello,
    I am visiting Budapest with my son (11yo) in December. I would like to book the Castle Tour with Funicular Ride and River Cruise but would also be interested in the Labyrinth programs. Is it possible for us to include this stop during the tour then join the group back to finish the tour?

  5. Hello,

    I would like to make an inquiry about the Castle Tour & Funicular & Cruise.
    I would like to book the tour for 3 people, must it be between 4 to 8 people?

    • Hi Dick Sun Leow,
      My wife and I are also interested in the same tour, but unable to book, as the minimum number of guests to start the tour is 4. Would you like to join so that we can make a group? If yes, then could you email them at budacastlebudapest@gmail.com, so that they can put us together in a group. We will be in Budapest 16 December (Friday) – 18 December (Sunday).

      Thank you,
      Bobby

      • Dear Bobby,

        thank you for your interest in the Buda Castle District Tour with Funicular ride and Danube Cruise.

        We are glad to let you know that we have made the tour package available for groups smaller than 4 people. For mini groups the price per person is higher of course as the guide fees are divided by fewer people, but should there be more people joining the tour the extra costs will be reimbursed.
        The tour is available with 2 starting hours (10.30 am or 4pm). The morning tour is cheaper for 2 persons (total of €110) than the evening tour (€120).

        I would like to accept the offer but I am sorry but we will be in Budapest from 20th onwards.

  6. Hi I would like to book Castle Tour & Funicular & Cruise for 16 December 2016 for my wife and myself. However, when I tried to submit the request online, it is indicated that the number of guests must be between 4 and 8. Is there a way to book this tour for a couple? Thank you.

  7. Hi! I am just one person wanting to take the tour, is that possible? I want it for 3rd March for the morning time.

  8. I’m looking to book the 11:30 am tour for 2 people on March 20th. Under prices of tour it lists 55 euros per person for a group of 2. However, when I try to book the tour for 2 on the website, the website quotes me 130 euros, which would be 65 euros per person. That’s even more expensive than the afternoon tour. Is the information listed in the prices wrong or is the booking system incorrect?
