Melinda was a phenomenal tour guide. She was super pleasant, knowledgeable, flexible, and fun to spend the day with. We couldn't help but love Budapest after a day of touring with her. She introduced us to all the highlights in a short period of time. Her English is top rate. I would highly recommend her to anyone travelling in Budapest. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Melinda was a fantastic guide; I am food and beverage motivated - she had great restaurant and coffee shop recommendations and was even better company over lunch and coffee. And, in between, she gave me a Wikipedia x10 of the history of Budapest. Most important, she was unfazed by issues related to my traveling with a teenager that might have shaken others. Guides like Melinda are the reason I keep coming back to Tours by Locals when visiting a city for the first time.

We saw so much in one day but it never felt rushed. Melinda was very informative with her personal touch of the history. It was a great day. Highly recommended her!

We did two day tours with Melinda. She was a wonderful guide and representative of Budapest. Melinda really made us fall in love with Budapest. It is a larger, more spread out city and Melinda showed us all over the city and really educated us on the sites. She provided recommendations for dinner well before we arrived and actually helped change some of our reservations at the last minute for us. I highly recommend her services and hope we get to visit Budapest again soon!

Melinda was a terrific guide that was very knowledgeable and she tailored our tour to our requests. It was like being shown around a city by your friend whom was passionate about where they live rather than your stereotype tour guide. A fabulous experience. Thank you Melinda and George.

Melinda and driver Andrew maximized our day in Budapest with efficiently managing the highlights and some of the hidden secrets of the city. We appreciated the balance of seeing the sights, hearing the history, walking to some places and then having the van pick us up to avoid retracing steps, and being willing to satisfy our photo desires. Matthias Church and the view from Fishermen's Bastion were some of our favorite memories. We also appreciated recommendations for restaurants and a Danube cruise.

Fabulous experience. She and Andrew were the best! We had such a full and wonderful day in Budapest AND we parted with a plan for our next 1 1/2 days on our own. So glad for the match with Melinda. Thank you

Melinda was wonderful. She made us feel welcome, listened to our desires & modified our tour to meet our expectations. Her overviews of history were excellent & her early career as a teacher stood out. Her pace was fantastic for us and she made sure we really understood the human side of Budapest, especially how the events of the last 20 years impacts life today. She & our driver got us quickly to an area & then spent the time needed walking. She was great fun and most interesting. Lunch was great.

We have used Tours By Locals numerous times in the past and I must say the very best to date was with Melinda. We spent two days with her in Budapest and both tours were simply outstanding. She is extremely knowledgeable, very professional, flexible to our requested changes to the itinerary and fun to be with. I would highly recommend Melinda if you want to see Budapest, learn about the history and culture. She was the best!

We had 3 days in Budapest, and engaged Melinda for all 3 days. On this, the second day, Melinda and her favorite driver Andras met us at 9am at our apartment. Since we had had a private walking tour of the Pest central area the previous day, we were able to focus more on the Buda heights with the Citadel, Castle district, Matthias Church and Fishermen's Bastion, and the Parliament and Central Market in Pest. Melinda also arranged, and we enjoyed, a Silverline Dinner Cruise and Folklore Show.

Melinda communicated regularly during pre-trip planning and was very flexible when we asked to modify the pre-planned agenda. She was informative and good at answering questions when we needed more. We went to some very unusual locations and being at the end of our trip appreciated some sites that not everyone would have seen. We would highly recommend Melinda for your next tour in Budapest.

Melinda was an excellent guide for a full day Budapest tour. Her overview of Hungary's history was crystal clear and helped us put what she showed us for the rest of the day into context. Melinda was personable, sensitive to our interests and highly informative. Thank you!

We booked this tour for two, and then at the last minute added four new friends we met on our cruise. No problem, said Melinda, and she and her driver were friendly and fun and flexible and totally unruffled by the change. We had a great time hitting all the city's highlights and learning a lot of Hungarian history in the process. She was just terrific and accommodating and friendly and our day-and-a-half with her were the highlights of our trip. Highly, highly recommend!

If you enjoy encyclopedic knowledge of a city, one with a long and often tortured history, you will be enchanted by Melinda. Her intelligent, engaging presentation rolled effortlessly between Budapest's pivotal characters and events (including the consequences), architecture, dynastic successions, and even touched on cuisine. Our group of four finished the two-day tour with a deeper understanding of what went into creating this fascinating and beautiful city. We're past ToursByLocals users, and she's tops

We were very pleased with our tour with Melinda. She was informative and obviously knows her 'stuff'. I have a knee issue and she was very careful to pace the tour to make it comfortable for me. We would recommend her highly to anyway interested in touring Budapest.
