We had a wonderful time seeing the best of Budapest during our Viking river cruise. The only disappointment was that we did not have more time to spend in the city and with our wonderful guide, Nikolett.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind words, Cliff. It was my pleasure to spend the day with you. Hope you will be back! ;)

James MuraUnited States
Had a great tour with Nikolett, I am a history nut, especially WWII history. Nikolett led me through Budapest and I really learned a lot. What I am not is someone who is good at writing reviews. But Nikolett was really fantastic and I would highly recommend her. She even treated me to a great piece of cake in a nice Cafe. Next time I am in Budapest, I would definitely book her again, I just hope it isn't another 11 and a half years! Thanks Nikolett!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, James. You are most welcome anytime you return to Hungary! The sooner the better. Take care!

Tom StorrsUnited States
Nikollet's tour was phenomenal even during a day long snow storm. She explained exactly what we were going to do in the hotel lobby before we left. We used every form of public transportation with the passes she had purchased to scoot all over the city. Her knowledge of the city and its history was extensive, and she was personable and fun to be with. And despite the weather, we accomplished everything she promised. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Tom, once again, for choosing ToursByLocals and my guide services. I myself enjoyed touring snowy Budapest with you and your lovely wife. I hope one day you will be back and we can further explore the city. Until then, take care and Merry Christmas!
From our first contact to the end of our tours in Budapest, Nikolett proved to be exceptional! She provided a detailed email initially with ideas on what to see and do during our 2 days in Budapest. Her responses were always prompt. As a tour guide, Nikolett was extremely enthusiastic, knowledgeable and professional as well as interesting and engaging and seemed to know exactly how much detail to provide on the sites visited. I would highly recommend her services - she is an excellent guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Sherry. It was my pleasure to be your guide and I hope you will be back!!! Take care!
Larry S.United States
Thank you, Nikolett, for your lovely presentation of Budapest. You clearly relayed historical high points and connected them with what we were seeing, and helped us start to understand your country. A lovely visit and we look forward to returning.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Larry and I look forward to your return!
Frank OttUnited States
Nikolett perfectly 'nailed' everything we wanted. We communicated often via Tours and Email so she was familiar with our requests and was also ready with a couple nice surprises. She was on time and ready with a wealth of knowledge of her town as well as its Nazi and Soviet and current history, We wanted to walk and us subways and trams - perfect experience. Monuments, churches, strudel, food market, Baths, wine tasting, Chain Bidge, Fisherman Bastion and Buda Castle. Excellent lunch stop and dinner rec.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Frank! It was my pleasure to be your TBL guide in Budapest. Take care and all the best to you!!

Henry Clifford BaggettUnited States
Nikolett's Summer Royal Palace Tour was simply outstanding in every way!!! Not only did she show us a beautifully restored summer palace, but she imparted such incredible knowledge of the history of the palace from its beginnings in 1774 through to its modern day renovation, along with the information about the personal lives of the palace's inhabitants. Not only was it a tour of a royal palace, it was an excellent lesson in Hungarian history. Many, many thanks, Nikolett, for a fantastic tour!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Mary and Cliff! It was my pleasure to be your guide! Safe and happy travels to you!!
James PaluchUnited States
Nikolett is by far one of the most knowledgable tour guides I have been in contact with. She knows this city from front to back and practically answered any question I had about the city. She also was able to put a customized tour together for me. I would highly recommend her for her services and would use her again if I ever return back to the city. A+++++ all the way.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, James! I look forward to your return and will be happy to be your guide again. :)
Moanica CastonUnited States
Amazing tour, even more amazing guide! Our river cruise suffered the fates of a low Danube like so many others. With that came lots of schedule changes. I emailed Nikolett to let her know we would not arrive in the morning (as we'd booked), but in the afternoon. I thought we'd have to cancel, but she worked her magic and we had our tour after all! We fell in LOVE with Budapest and are already planning a return trip. Nikolett has been a guide for 15+ years and makes Budapest come to life!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Moanica & Henry, thank you for the kind words and your review of our tour. It was my pleasure to be your TBL guide in Budapest and I can hardly wait to welcome you again when you return. We will discover more of Budapest together then! :)
Very knowledgeable tour guide especially regarding historical and cultural aspects of Hungary since its beginnings. Very good English, excellent to understand also for non-native English speaking guests. And a very nice person, too.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Henry for sending me such lovely guests as your friends Birgit and Jens. :) It was my pleasure to be their local guide!
Charles T.United States
Niki provided us with a wonderful tour of Budapest. Her English is excellent and she is very knowledgeable concerning her city. The vehicle she provided was clean, modern and spacious. She was very adept at guiding us through crowds. She is very personable and accommodating to ingeniously allow us to visit a tourist site that was not on the itinerary and where parking the vehicle was extremely difficult. I highly recommend her as a tourist guide
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Charles!
Kerry SimsUnited States
Nicki is outstanding! She adjusted our tour based on things we had already seen and she made it so interesting! She planned our visit so we would not have to increase the amount of travel we were doing. She is SO knowledgeable on the city, history, and any other areas you might have questions about. HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind words. I feel honored indeed. It was a great day with the four of you! And... see you next year!!! ;)
Gladell P.United States
I did the Budapest Top Attraction tours with Nikolett and it was amazing. The tour was well organized and very convenient covering multiple scenic places and sights in Buda and Pest on board a comfortable van, and then strolling around the spots to further see the details. We started with the awesome panorama view of the city. Nikolett was extremely knowledgeable and nice. Especially for first timer in Budapest who wants to make the most on your first days in the city, this is the tour is for you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the review and the kind words. It was my pleasure to be your guide. :)

Guide's knowledge of Hungarian history is good. Some rooms of palace are "replicas", but tour of Palace is very interesting. Guide's effort to place tourist at ease- noted.
John BurkeUnited Kingdom
Nikolett's love of her country comes shining through. She is a wonderful, informative guide sharing her thorough knowledge of the subject in a warm, professional and thoughtful manner. It was a pleasure being in her company - we learned so much and cannot praise her too highly. J&A (UK)

David F.United States
Nikolett provided an excellent overview tour of Budapest covering both the Pest and Buda sides of the river along with informative dialog about the history of Budapest. The private car used allowed us to see a great deal of the city in a 4 hour tour. A highly recommended tour.
Lynne M.United States
April 19th and it was snowing and raining in Budapest! Nikolett did a wonderful job adapting to these adverse conditions. A big bonus of her tour over coach tours is that we could be driven up to the Fishermans Bastion, which is a long uphill hike for seniors. Nikolett is also very knowledgeable about the history of her country and made it interesting for us as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Lynne. Enjoy the rest of your stay in Budapest and safe travels back to your home country!
Mark HoganUnited States
Nicolett is a superb guide, very knowledgeable, extremely articulate and exceedingly interesting. This is a fabulous tour. We had seen Budapest during the day, but the Budapest by Night Tour was the highlight of our visit to this beautiful city. Many of Budapest's signature places are illuminated so viewing them by night is quite an experience. Additionally, going to the top of the Citadel at night and looking down on all is Budapest is spectacular. We highly recommend you take this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mark. I was honored to be your guide. Good luck and safe travels!
Sheena KimUnited States
Nickolette our tour was a wonderful knowledgeable tour guide. It was a very pleasant experience, she was detailed and marked all the map where we can visit next day on our own. We would love to come back for another tour with Nickolette and will definitely recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind words, Sheena. It feel honored to be your guide and happy to get to know you and your lovely family. Looking forward to welcoming you back in my city Budapest.
