We had the most wonderful time touring with Andrea. We spent 2 days in Budapest. The first day was a general overall tour of the city, which in spite of the windy, rainy weather turned out to be terrific!! Andrea's way of presenting the information and the order in which she showed us things made it very easy to understand the history and geography of this beautiful city. The second day was spent doing a Jewish Heritage tour which was exceptional giving us tremendous insight to the culture of this city
