Tickets to Parliament in Budapest

What is the best website for ordering tickets to visit the Parliament Building? Some of the ones I have found are not secure, so hesitate putting my credit card number on them.

Thank you for confirming that website. I had seen that, but wasn't sure about it.

Should I also buy Opera House tickets ahead on their own website? Or can we just purchase them when we arrive?

Mister É is right that a performance tickets go quickly and the sooner the better for those. Tickets for just the 30 min tour don’t go as quickly - I just did a random check and today I can buy tickets for tomorrow. So if you are planning your days and know when you need to go, I would buy now. If you have flexibility and aren’t sure yet, you might be able to wait. But I am a planner…..

I can't figure out how to book an English speaking tour. We will be there in November. What am I missing? And open to suggestions!

I don’t see them listed as available. All I see are the tours with an audioguide (and you can choose English). But why I don’t know. Maybe too early?

Texas Travel Mom, that's what I saw too. Which is why I"m soooo confused about the English tours "selling out early". I will look again as we get closer

We leave for our trip to Vienna and Budapest tomorrow. I was finally able to purchase tickets for the English Tour for the Hungarian Opera House about 5 days ago (I've checked the site off and on for the last month). They only load the tour tickets about 3-4 weeks in advance.

We just returned from Budapest yesterday. On Thursday, Sept 21 we toured the Parliament with tickets we had purchased ahead of time at the site mentioned in the above response.

They have apparently changed their tours and now have listening devices and ear pieces they give you when you arrive. You scan the device on a chart to chose your language. There must have been at least 20 different languages to choose from. As you walked along with a guide you listned to the device explain what you see. It seemed to work well and we had no problems understanding.

So, Birder49, are you saying we do not have to purchase a specific English tour? Sure does make things easier.
