Adam provided an energetic and highly informed tour for fourof us on our first full day in Budapest, as we hit the hidden gems of Buda and Pest by foot and subway. Not only is he a student of Hungarian history and culture, but he is an outstanding student of people as well, as took our measure and sensed our interests and where we might find the most enjoyment along the way. Recommend him highly!
Lori DewetterEl Paso, TX, United States
As we used Adam 2 days in a row, I wrote my review from our first of two with him. He is an amazing guide and anyone visiting Budapest should use him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lori, thank you for taking two tours with me! I have fully enjoyed both days we have spent together! Regards, Adam M arot
Lori DewetterEl Paso, TX, United States
We have been fortunate enough to have had many excellent guides from this company. But touring with Adam was amazing. We spent 2 days with him, one driving and the other walking. Both were informative, entertaining, and delightful. Not knowing what to expect in Budapest, Adam enlightened us with its history and issues, past and present. We visited so many areas of the city that had we not toured with him, we are certain we would have missed so much. What a beautiful and exciting city. Thank you Adam!
Belinda BloxsomUnited States
Adam is delightful! A day in Budapest would not be complete without the pleasure of his company and knowledge of his home city and country. Belinda, US
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Belinda, thank you for letting me substitute my colleague! It was a pleasure to meet you! looking forward meeting your family as well, the next time you are in Budapest! Regards, Adam M
William McCoyUnited States
Adam thanks for an outstanding day ,not only did we learn about Budapest but we learned so very much about your culture. We were lucky to find you and feel we have all made a new friend who clearly is not only entertaining but loves good food and wine like we do ! Thank you for such a great start to our journey . You took hundreds of years of history and after 5 hours allowed us to walk away with Respect and a little knowledge of your country.
Marion McGovernUnited States
Adam is one of the best guides we have ever had. He designed our time to get the most out of it, and was happy to pivot when we had other ideas. We used public transport to maximize our time, which was key, given the size of Budapest. Once he knew the interests of the group, he made pains to point particular things out to specific individuals. He had a great sense of humor and told amazing stories. We had 4 different guides on our trip to 4 cities and he was by far the best.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marion, it was a pleasure to meet and show around all four of you! I am glad to read that you had a great time with me in Budapest! Thank you for the movie and book recommendations! Hope to see you all soon! Regards, Adam M arot
Sandra CallaghanUnited States
We had a relaxing and enjoyable day on the Danube Bend tour with Adam as our guide. Adam is an excellent guide - able to field virtually any question that I had, from history to politics to culture. He's energetic and clearly has a passion for Hungary and for guiding tours. I wish I could give him 6 stars! -Sandy Fort Worth, TX
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sandra, thank you for choosing me to introduce you to the Danube Bend! Indeed it was an enjoyable day and a lovely conversation! Thank you for the experience! Kind regards, Adam M arot
Candy BagleyUnited States
We had a wonderful tour. Adam made changes to our tour so not to overlap with what we had already seen and what we would see in a couple of days with a riverboat tour (he would also be a guide on that tour). He had good suggestions of things to do and places to eat. Best of all he explained the 100 year old apartment we had rented. He told us about what it used to be and about our neighborhood and restaurants.
Aimee FriedmanUnited States
Adam is charming and knowledgeable. We learned so much about this beautiful city. Thank you so much Adam! We highly recommend this tour and felt it was a highlight of our trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Brian Friedman, thank you for choosing me as your guide to Budapest and for taking the time to leave a feedback! Hope to see you soon in my hometown! Regards, Adam
Claudia R.United States
Looking for the perfect guide in Budapest? Look no further - Adam is your guy. 3 "active" senior couples spent the day in Budapest with him. Adam is knowledgeable, personable, friendly, FUNNY, flexible, and very professional. He is passionate about his city and made us all fall in love with Budapest. His English is perfect and his restaurant recommendations were a hit. His driver, Daniel, was excellent. He added depth to the SHORT city overview we had already had. Don't miss the baths and Lake Park.
Darren VincentUnited States
If I could give Adam more then 5 stars I would. He was the perfect guide. We had a wheel chair bound guest with us and he pushed her around all day. He never complained! He was knowledgeable on all subjects and made us feel as though we were part of the history. Even though we were taking longer at each spot he made sure we saw the entire itinerary. He is a credit to your company!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Darren Vincent, thank you for choosing me to introduce Budapest to your group! I am glad we could tour the city in the afternoon and during the early evening! Hope to see you soon in my hometown! Regards, Adam M.
Adam has been an excellent guide for our group of 6. He was very knowledgeable and delivered history and fact in a very fun and interesting way. His love of Budapest is infectious. We all learned to love the city as well. His tour is well organized and does not overlap our city tour covered by our river cruise on the following day. We got to see the most beautiful sunset and experience the turning on of the city lights that was most spectacular.
Maryann A.United States
Our first evening in Budapest was stellar thanks to Adam's guiding us throughout the city for the most spectacular viewing of Budapest's historical buildings, memorials, and cultural sites. Adam's comprehensive knowledge of Hungary's past and present socio-economic-political history coupled which he fluidly shared with us was impressive indeed. Our group of six enjoyed his Budapest by Night tour immensely and we highly recommend Adam as your tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Maryann, thank you for choosing me to introduce you and your group to Budapest! It was a pleasure to meet you all! Kind regards, Adam M arot
Mark HowellUnited States
Since my daughter is a budding photographer, this tour was just right for my family. Adam is an expert tour guide and an excellent photographer. With Budapest as the backdrop, Adam took us by van and by foot to the best vantage points around the city. Not only did he get us there, but he interacted with my daughter seamlessly about the best camera advice and tech talk along the way. He also brought his camera bag with multiple lenses that allowed my daughter to take some amazing photos! Amazing night!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mark, thank you for taking the time to leave a feedback of both tours you booked with me! We were very lucky with the conditions that evening and I am very glad that you all enjoyed the tour despite the fact that only Megan took photos! You have a lovely family! Thanks for letting me accompany you for day! Kind regards, Adam M.
Mark HowellUnited States
Adam's Hidden Gem Tour was wonderful! He met us promptly at our hotel and took us to some fascinating out-of-the-way sights. We had already been on an overview tour by our cruise company and this gave us much more depth into the life of Budapest. His knowledge of the history of Budapest is excellent and he was able to impart that to us. My family enjoyed his excellent English, his sense of humor, and his ease of discussing the difficult topics of the recent Communist past of Hungary. Great tour!!
Lisa ChapmanUnited Kingdom
This was our first time in Budapest and Hungary. We cannot recommend Tours by Locals enough and our fabulous guide Adam. Adam introduced us to his beautiful historical city. We had history, culture, fun and hospitality. Keep up the good work.

I cannot say enough about Adam. We came from the US as a group of 14 of various ages, from 12-80 years old. His English was impeccable, and he was extremely knowledgeable and kind. He was able to present Budapest in a way that was interesting and relevant to everyone in the group. He went out of his way to help us with all aspects of our trip so we could fully experience and enjoy "his city" - and enjoy we did! Highly, highly recommend! Thanks, Adam!

Another great tour with Adam. He knows his stuff and makes the tour enjoyable and informative. He was also helpful telling us about some great restaurants and shops to go to on our last day. We thoroughly enjoyed experiencing Budapest with Adam.
Richard HeydelUnited States
This was our highlight. Adam knew the best places and times to get great photos and helped us learn how to set them up. Weather was very cooperative so that helped also. Highly recommend Adam. He's very knowledgeable and easy going and thoroughly enjoyable to be with. He also follows up - I messaged him a week later because I couldn't remember the name of the place and he got back to me immediately. Very nice guy!

We spent a great afternoon walking and riding public transport around Budapest with Adam. His knowledge and passion for his city is commendable. His historical information and personal insights added to out tour. Thanks!
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.

Randall Weber-LevineUnited States
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 can highly recommend Adam, his knowledge was fantastic and he is very personable. His English is perfect and his history stories are not only factual but interesting. He took us to all the main sights and was more than willing to share information with us in relation to our upcoming trip to Vienna. A+ Thank you so much Adam

I had given Adam an ambitious list of things I hoped to see during my full-day tour, and he managed to get them all on the itinerary!

Adam took me on a walking tour of Buda at sunset and early evening.

Adam put everything into the right perspective for us and helped our group to understand also many aspects of the social and cultural life in Hungary. In addition Adam has a great sense of humor.

Very informative, very amusing and good company. Highly recommend Adam.

Heather WinnieUnited States
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.
Sidney FrankUnited States
A definite must whether you are on a short or long visit to Budapest. Adam is an incredible source of information. He is enthusiastic but still sensitive to all needs of the group. He is flexible which allows for input and focus changing. Our group only wished he did not have to leave for another job.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sidney, thank you for taking your time to write a review of my tour! It was an honour to meet both you and your family! It was very interesting to talk to someone who have seen my hometown prior to its transition.
Adam and driver Daniel were excellent. We covered most of the city sights we wanted to see. The historical context provided was very good.

Carlos Sepulveda-RamosUnited States
This is the tour I would like to do if visiting Budapest again! Adam is such a great guy with lot of knowledge of the city, very pleased to answer questions and open to adjust the tour according to what you want to do or not. He is also a good photographer and took pictures of us every time we asked him. Gave us tips on what to do and visit in Budapest and even in Vienna which was our next stop! Thanks Adam!!!
Adam is a great guy with lots and lots of information about the city. He makes the tour very personal and enjoyable. All my family members (young and old) enjoyed it immensely.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for choosing me to introduce you and your family to the Hungarian culture and to my hometown!
Richard GaughUnited States
We learned of ToursByLocals from an article in the New York Times travel section and decided to give them a try for the Budapest segment of our river boat trip. We were not disappointed! Two of our trips were guided by Adam whose enthusiasm for his work is infectious. We hit all of the high spots not covered by the tours included in our trip package. Neat kid!
Richard GaughUnited States
We took this tour within 1/2 hour of checking into our hotel after an 11 hour trip from Boston. We needed something on the light side, Adam seemed to know the majority of the shop keepers in the Great Market Place and we sampled enough for a small army, At tour's end we knew how to find the market on foot from our hotel and what local favorites to enjoy on another visit. What fun!
Jodene RichardsUnited States
Adam was excellent. He was knowledgeable and very accommodating. Adam was able to add both recent history as well as the more historic aspects of all things seen. I recommend Adam without reservations. Adam was able to show his pride in his city which was contagious.
Roger WilliamsUnited Kingdom
Prior to arriving in Budapest I had not had time to read about the city. Adam did a great job in explains everthing It was a wonderful tour around the city. It is a great city. I was really surprised by its history and the great care they have taken in rebuilding it and how clean it is. Great job by Adam. I would recommend him to anybody. The use if the public transport was so much better than getting on an off a tour bus.
Elizabeth B.United States
We thoroughly enjoyed the day we spent with Adam. He loves sharing his extensive knowledge of his country with visitors. He took us to a beautifully renovated bookstore/coffee shop that we would not have found on our own. He is also very personable and accommodating. It felt like we were seeing the town with a friend. Highly recommend him.
Alexandra CadburyUnited Kingdom
We were a group of four 65 year olds and Adam was a wonderful person to show us his beautiful city. He was fun to be with, extremely knowledgeable, was able to assess our needs and pace and knew Budapest so well. We had lots of different questions ranging from history, Jewish customs and community, food, restaurants, wine, photography, cycling and so much more. Nothing seemed to phase him and he gave us lots of tips and ideas for our week in Budapest. I would definitely recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alexandra! It was a pleasure to be with you and with your friends,to show you around and maybe help you a little to feel as a local in my hometown. Thank you for being so interested in our culture! I truly believe that a guide can not ask for a better company than yours!
Paul PereaUnited States
Adam was awesome - aside from arranging and dealing with logistics, he is so knowledgeable about Hungarian history and culture. I was thankful we had Adam as our guide - it made our experience and introduction to Hungary, and specifically, Budapest, all the more enjoyable.
Paul PereaUnited States
Adam was awesome - aside from arranging and dealing with logistics, he is so knowledgeable about Hungarian history and culture. I was thankful we had Adam as our guide - it made our experience and introduction to Hungary, and specifically, Budapest, all the more enjoyable. I highly recommend using this company to book tours.
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).
Steven LeBlancUnited States
Adam was interesting, well informed and cheerful. I would definitely use him again, and hope to do so next time I visit Budapest. He is very knowledgeable and helpful as well.
David O'ConnellUnited Kingdom
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.
Khether RabyUnited States
adam was enthusiastic knowledgeable and a delight to be with. we saw Budapest as we could not have using just generic guides
Nancy BeckleyUnited States
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard! Thank you for sharing your time with me and booking two tours with me! It was a pleasure to accompany the two of you! Regards, Adam

Adam was very knowledgeable and personable; friendly, animated and passionate about the history of Budapest. There seemed not to be a question we asked that he wasn't totally informed on and enthusiastic to answer. Having grown up in Budapest, Adam had numerous personal anecdotes to share. Be sure to ask him about the King's ring!

Adam is very knowledgeable about the history, current events and culture of Hungary. He gave a great tour (even providing umbrellas for us in the pouring rain!) and was flexible to all our needs. I would not hesitate to use his service as a tour guide while in Budapest. Everyone was quite pleased with the amount of information he provided during our limited time together. Also, his English is excellent. Thank you, Adam!

Adam gave my wife and me a wonderful introduction to his city: Budapest. His warm, friendly nature made seeing the sights and learning about the culture and history a joy. Even a light rain all morning did not diminish our enjoyment of his tour. His English is excellent and we highly recommend him. Thanks, Adam, for your tip of Szimpla Kert on Sunday morning.

We had a wonderful experience on our recent trip to Budapest and our tour with Adam. Budapest is very beautiful at night and our bicycle ride was the perfect way enjoy it. Adam is a charming young man with a solid knowledge base. His insights kept things interesting and entertaining. He did an excellent job and gets a "5" rating from us. We feel like we have a new friend in Adam.

This was an excellent tour and we considered it to be excellent value for money. Adam was highly informative and passionate about his home city. The tour met all our requirements and a more insightful tour than any of the more commercial mass group type tours could ever do. We would highly recommend toursbylocals on the basis of this tour.

Adam took good care of my son and myself. He knew where to take us to really understand the city and the culture. He had some interesting political views and shared them in a friendly, educational way. He truly loves his country and city. It is beautiful, and he helped us appreciate that.

Adam was a great guide. Very knowledgeable about so many subjects, Budapest History, politics, culture. With a multigenerational local personal history that just added to the tour. Very good English skills. I would strongly recommend him.
