Andrea gave our foursome a delightful and informative tour of the Jewish quarter in Budapest. She was informative, had a great sense of humor and showed us many things we wouldn't have seen on a cruise tour. Thank you Andrea!!

What a great first experience with Tours by locals. Despite a airline delay Andrea was very accommodating to our schedule change. Andrea did a great job in showing us everything that we wanted to see as well as things we didn't even know about. Throughout the tour she was very good at adding the related history to the places that we were visiting as well. Overall, we had a GREAT tour with Andrea and would highly recommend her Tours by Local services if you are going to visit Budapest!
Andrea was incredibly knowledgeable and eloquent, and spoke extremely good English. She incorporated other aspects of the city as we moved between the Jewish heritage points of interest. She was also very kind to get access to and introducing me to the people in the Jewish Records Office. I had a very informative morning, Andrea never lost my interest and suddenly we were at the end of the 4 hour tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Peter, Thank you very much for your kind words. I throughly enjoyed touring with you and introducing you to our fascinating Jewish history and heritage. Thank you for sharring the story of your family. I hope you'll be successful in your research. Please let me know if I can assist you in Budapest. Thank you again. Warm regards, Andrea
This was not just a Jewish heritage tour. Andrea is a wealth of knowledge in so many areas. She is enthusiastic, entertaining, patriotic, she went above and beyond to try and assist us in our search for information. I would highly recommend Andrea to everyone, she is really amazing. You will not be disappointed!

Andrea was amazing!!!! Knowledgeable, interesting, and with a sense of humor. I must say that the 4 hour tour went so fast (she was even generous with her time and it was close to 4.5 hours). If you want an accurate tour with good historical and actual information delivered in a superb way, Andrea is your tour guide! I highly recommend her

My husband and I did the Jewish history walking tour with Andrea. The tour was excellent and Andrea is a fantastic guide who speaks fluent English. We visited the historic synagogues,relevant sites/memorials/statues and walked through the Jewish quarter. We learned a lot from Andrea about the Jewish community in Budapest over the past few centuries as well as the history of the Jewish community and Jewish ghetto in Budapest during the Holocaust. Would highly recommend this tour.

I had back to back tours with Andrea on Oct 29, 2017. What wonderfu tours she presented filled with historical data, personal insights and sharing her love of Budapest. One of the best tour guides I have ever had. If you want to tour Budapest, touring with Andrea is a must.
Lisa DavisUnited States
Andrea was a fantastic guide! We learned so much about both the history of Jewish Budapest as well as more current events. She tailored her comments to the interests of my family. Our 3 children were not excited about a 4 hour Jewish history tour, but they ended up loving it and saying they wished we had more time with Andrea. I would highly recommend her as a guide.
Joel PadowitzUnited States
Andrea was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! She took my family (kids ages 4-17) on a Jewish heritage tour of Budapest and kept them engaged, fascinated, and entertained for 3 whole hours. We all loved her and learned so much! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Barbara MorrisUnited States
Andrea is very knowledgeable and we saw quite a bit with her in the Jewish quarter and much of the city. In a short time we covered alot of ground and learned quite a bit. She has an extensive knowledge of Hungary, past and present and her love for the culture and the country are quite evident. Her Jewish heritage and her deep links to the Budapest Jewish community are a plus.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Barbara, It was a pleasure introducing our rich and colorful Jewish heritage to you. I hope I was able to add a little extra to your visit to Budapest and took good memories from Hungary. Thank you for your feedback. Best regards, Andrea

Wow! We learned so much and she was so engaging. We had just travelled 20 hours, had 30 minutes before she arrived to get ready. She kept us awake and showed us much more than we expected. Could not have asked for a better introduction to Budapest.
Andrea was a great guide. She was knowledgeable and explained about the history of the sites and what life was like today. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Great tour! Our group of 4 adults spent the afternoon on the Jewish Heritage walking tour with Andrea. She is very knowledgeable(she is like a walking and talking Hungarian history book)and gave so much interesting background information. She answered our questions and listened to our comments which she used as a guide of what to show us and talk about. She is very friendly and her English is great. Would recommend Andrea as a tour guide!
Sheryl S.United States
Andrea was so informative about the past history and more recent history of Hungary. The walking pace was good and I was amazed at how much ground we covered in our time together. She continually pointed out architectural details we would not have noticed on our own and was excellent at linking these details to their significance in Hungarian history. Andrea also gave us tips on navigating Budapest on our own enabling us to explore the city safely and with a solid background of the city and people.
Nancy S.United States

Rebecca LeibowitzUnited States
Andrea is a wealth of knowledge and an excellent guide! We learned so much and got the opportunity to appreciate Budapest on a much deeper level than we expected. Andrea took us not only to the Jewish sites, but also taught us about broader Budapest history and relations with the USA. We got much more than expected, and she was flexible with our changing needs (we kept changing the number of people and had some walking issues, but she adjusted the tour to meet our needs). I highly reccommend Andrea!

The Budapest Jewish Heritage tour given by Andrea was one of THE best tours I have taken in nearly 20 years of international travel. Andrea is the consummate professional, extremely knowledgeable and astute, an excellent communicator, sensitive to the interests of her clients, and has a wonderful sense of humor. She is one of THE most interesting and delightful tour guides I have had the pleasure of meeting. She greatly enriched our visit to Budapest.

Our walking tour was everything we expected and more. Andrea was knowledgeable, informative and charming. She gave us sufficient information without overloading us. The length of the tour (about 4 hrs) was just about right. I have already given her details to my sister who's visiting Budapest in September and would happily recommend Andrea to anyone else.
