Adam is an excellent guide. He knows the history and the best angles of the places we wanted to visit in Budapest. Best of all, he likes his work and knows how to get the whole family involved. It was a wonderful experiece, the only problem was the time (The weather was delightful and we wanted more time to enjoy the view at every sight.)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Jose Trevino, it was a pleasure to meet all four of you today! I enjoyed the time we have spent together a lot! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of my tour! Kind regards, Adam M.

Adam is a tremendous tour guide. He combines knowledge with a sparkling personality that is sure to brighten up your day. We began by meandering through the Jewish quarter where Adam made sure to give us the downlow on how Hungary addresses its brief Nazi past. From there, we proceeded to the Opera House, the bathhouse, the ice skating rink, the house of terror, and then across the Danube to the Fisherman's Bastion. At the end of the tour, he treated us to delicious grandma style strudel. Can you say yum!

Adam M was an ideal guide. Knowledgeable, entertaining, considerate of our needs and totally accommodating. He went above and beyond to help us have a great tour and a smooth transition to our river cruise, even taking our luggage from the van to the ship! He hired an excellent driver which made our tour perfect. His English was spot on and we learned a great deal more about Budapest and Hungary than we imagined possible. I would use him again and highly recommend others to the same.

We also visited a vineyard, on a private estate in Etyek, where we had a fabulous wine tasting and al fresco lunch. We returned in time to see Fisherman's Bastion, Matthias Church and the House of Parliament. Adam has a world class knowledge of the history, culture and peoples of Hungary.

He explained in detail what the itinerary was going to be for the day but was very flexible with it, which my Mom and I appreciated.

The thought of visiting Hungary can be pretty intimidating for a US citizen. With a guide you look for someone that can speak English and help us understand the Hungarian history while working with our generally limited working knowledge of the country. Adam went above and beyond what one would expect from a guide. He was knowledgeable about everything, spoke perfect English, and brought a hilarious sense of humor. I highly recommend him.

Major sights portion - Adam was friendly knowledgeable and happy to answer lots of questions. Caving was surprising: we thought it would be light but it was quite intensive by which we were challenged and happy to accomplish. It was pretty tight and physically challenging in several places. Laszlo was a very patient and practiced caving coach. Even though they give you a coverall you should wear clothes that can get dirty especially if it has been raining (including shoes and gloves).

Fantastic Tour with a really knowledgeable guide. Adam and driver David picked us up at our hotel at 10am as agreed. The weather was amazing, really clear so we first went to the Citadel for a panoramic view over Budapest. Adam is obviously so proud of his city, it shone through in the stories he told us. He took us to see the Statue of Liberty; the Fisherman's Bastion and St Mattius Church, the lucky horse statue, the Chain Bridge, the Parliament Building and Heroes Square. Highly recommended.

Adam was the very best guide! If you need to research & find your 'roots" in Hungary, he is your man. This was a top experience in my life to find my Grandfather's birthplace and discover relatives I didn't know existed. Adam went way beyond to satisfy our needs! We visited Sopron, the pan European picnic site & Hungary's Versailles palace = all fabulous. A Most Perfect day!

We hired Adam for a private tour. This was out first experience with Tours By Locals, and we were not disappointed. Adam, and our driver, arrived on time. The vehicle was clean and roomy for the 6 of us. The tour was EXCELLENT. Adam is very personable, his English is excellent, and he is very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Budapest. He not only took us to the major tourist places, but also told us about off the beaten path places - or took us there. Would not hesitate to recommend Adam.

You won't find a guide as knowledgeable and personable as Adam. I was concerned that he would get frustrated with me because I had to take breaks because of my knees....nope, we sat and he took the opportunity to tell us snippets of smaller facts of the area. Adam made Budapest come alive for us and has created a desire to visit again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rhonda, Thank you for leaving a review while you are still travelling around in Croatia! It was a pleasure to meet the 2 of you in Budapest! Hope to see you again! Adam.

What a great experience. Adam had planned a very exciting walking tour of this beautiful city. He knew a lot of history even with some humor at appropriate times. It was the perfect way to start exploring a new city. We even finished it off with having a table reserved for us at a great bistro. We highly recommend Adam as a guide. He tailored the tour to our interests. We got excited about our tour for the next day. This was so worthwhile. Truly a memorable day.

During a short visit to Budapest we booked a half day with Adam to take us up the river on the public water bus and to explain the sights visible from the Danube. Throughout Adam was interesting and professional with a great sense of fun and, although our trip ran over time wise, he was happy to make sure that we were delivered to the Great Market Hall and found a great place for lunch. The trip was all the more interesting for Adam's knowledge of the city and his insights into current affairs. Great day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a great pleasure to take you and your group around in Budapest! Time flew when you are with a great group, I wasn't aware of the fact that we ran over time until we arrived to the Great Market Hall to have lunch. It might be the public water buses, which were slower than said in the schedule. Wonderful day!
