This is not the first time I have used Tours by Locals and again they did not disappoint. Andrea was not only a delight but informative and an encyclopedia of information. She gave an excellent tour with personal touches. She was in tune with our needs, answered all our questions and tailored the tour to our expectations. Having a car was also quite a plus, especially in the winter. I could not have asked for a more perfect fit. Anyone using her services is lucky indeed. We felt that way!

Andrea was charming and knowledgeable. When we told her, during our tour, we had seen a particular memorial she made certain we understood the history behind the memorial (apparently we passed the test) and then adjusted the tour to add a different site. Also, she had access to locations that we would never have seen on our own as well as assuring that we had a sense of the present nature of the Jewish community. I certainly would hire her again.

Andrea M was the perfect tour guide to do the historical Jewish Tour of Budapest. She is incredibly intelligent, informative, passionate, compassionate and knowledgeable about the subject of Jewish history from the Austrian Hungarian empire until the present day. Our focus was on the late 19th century through World War I and II until present day Hungary. Her family dates back generations and she was able to give us personal perspective as well. We highly recommend this tour.

Andrea met us at our hotel and right away we new we were in for a wonderful tour. She is extremely knowledgeable, passionate, and immediately made us comfortable. We probably could have spent days with her just listening to her talk about the Jewish Heritage of Budapest and Hungary. I would highly recommend Andrea as a guide who will provide a special understanding of her city and country. A terrific experience.

This was a wonderful tour of Jewish Budapest. Andrea was so knowledgeable and so in tune to what we were wanting to learn. We would absolutely recommend her as your tour guide. We met two lovely ladies on our ship that coincidently also used Andrea for their tour of Jewish Budapest. She had been recommended to them and she had been recommended to us. We live in Florida and they live in California! So from one end of the US to the other, she is known and highly recommended. That says it all.

Andrea is an amazing guide! We learned so much from her deep knowledge about Jewish life in Hungary, her articulate and nuanced descriptions about recent and past history, and her enthusiasm for her subject. Andrea gave the sights we saw invaluable context. She also is warm and friendly, and she shared her personal history and experiences as well—just what one would wish from a local guide. She left us with so much to think about.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was nice meeting you today! Best regards and enjoy your cruise! Andrea m.
Andrea provided an exceptional tour of Jewish Budapest, providing a complete history and covering all the important sites, including the Glass House. She also provided a driver, which was great for seeing everything, especially in the steamy weather we've been having. As a Jew herself, we were able to discuss the current Jewish community, not just history, which we found very interesting. Highly recommended.

She is one of the best tour guides we have had. Andrea is exceptionally knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the Hungarian Jewish community and of Hungary in general.
