Our tour with Katalin through Tours By Locals was awesome. She corresponded with us about changes that we wanted to the itinerary and also what we might like to see on our own for our extra days we were in Budapest. Very good suggestions. Her historical commentary was so interesting and enlightening. My husband is not the walker that the rest of the group was, but she always found a nice coffee house where he could enjoy the sights. Very accommodating and our 8 hours with Katalin were too short.
