Our group really enjoyed our day tour with Rashad. He was very informative about the sights we saw, without information overload. He was cheerful with a good sense of humor and he kept us moving all day. We stopped at a unique food truck area for lunch, one which we likely would not have found ourselves. We covered all of the major sites, and some we would not have seen on our own. All in all, a great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dolores, Thanks a lot for your kind review! It was a great time with you! I am happy that you left with nice memories! Much much greetings from Budapest and best wishes! Rashad
Harvey RubensteinUnited States
Rashad was the best of all the guides that we have used by Tours By Locals, as well as by another tour company on a different tour. He was most knowledgeable, personable, pleasant, giving us the feeling that he was a friend. He presented throughout the tour historical background, placing each site into a contemporary prospectus. His enthusiasm created an environment which piqued our curiosity and desire for more knowledge of Budapest. He tailored the tour to our liking and was able to fully address all
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Harvey, Thank you so much for your kind words! I am very happy that you left with nice memories! Thanks for gave me the chance to be your guide in Budapest and for the great day we spent together! Much much greetings from Budapest and best wishes! Rashad

Fantastic day. In addition to a complete tour of the city's landmarks and districts, what we learned from Rashad about the history and culture of Hungary, Budapest, and it's people from the 9th century to today was outstanding. The tour's combination of walking and use of public transportation gave us an excellent sense of the city and enabled us to be very efficient in continuing our visit to Budapest. Would recommend Rashad and his tour to any first time visitor to Budapest.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Chris, Thank you so much for your great review and kind words! I was more than happy by it! It was very nice to meet you! Best wishes and I hope to meet again! Kindest regards, Rashad

Rashad was a fantastic and very friendly tour guide for our first day exploring Budapest. He packed a lot into 8 hours which was great because the day ended with us really feeling like we had seen and gained knowledge about several key parts of Budapest and its history. He knew they details and the history behind every big and little sight that we visited at his fingertips. He was patient with all our questions and photo taking and also led us to some really great spots for food and drink!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Regeru, Thank you so much for your great review and I am so happy that you enjoyed the tour! Honestly it was my pleasure to be your guide in Budapest! Wish you all the best!

Jeffrey BerryFort Myers, FLORIDA, United States
Rashad made Budapest a blast! This guy really knows history. The tour touches on all of the highlights. It is a packed 8 hrs using the friendly public transportation system. Rashad was able to accomodate our youngest at 13 and the mother-in-law at 83. I highly recommend a tour with him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jeffrey, Thank you so much for your kind words! It was my pleasure to meet with you and your nice family! Thanks for the great day and I wish you very nice travel and holiday! I wish you all the best!
David HeinUnited States
Rashad was an excellent guide. We learned a lot about Hungarian history just at our first stop at Heroes' Square. He had a great tour set up and modified it based on our interests and our walking abilities, since we had a group of 10 people ranging from 75 to 8 years old. Extra thanks for agreeing to take the remaining group up to the top of Gellert Hill at the end of the tour. It's a good hike up, but the views make it worth the effort.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, Thank you so much for your review and I hope the tour was enjoyable for all of you! Thanks for gave me the chance to be your guide in Budapest! I wish you all the best!!!

Katrinka ScaliseUnited States
He is absolutely a 5. He was very professional and polite. He was always concerned about our comfort and the comfort of others. He gave his seat to several strangers on the train and bus. His knowledge of history was impressive and his passion for his work showed when he was telling us about the Jewish camp. His stories were very detailed and we could visualize the events. He should receive a 10 if possible!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Katrinka! Thank you so much for your nice words and giving me the chance to be your guide. Honestly it was a wonderful day for me also and I am so happy that you liked the tour. Best wishes!

Richard ZornUnited States
Rashad is an outstanding tour guide! His tour is a bargain! He is a very likeable and enthusiastic person whose knowledge of his hometown is unsurpassed. If you are Jewish, just know that Rashad has your history covered. He enriched the time we spent at the Dohany Street Synagogue. We covered so much ground during the tour -- first on the Pest side and then finishing on the Buda side. You will be tired after 8 hours, but you will also know that Rashad's tour was comprehensive, as promised. Bravo!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Zorn! Thank you so much for your review! I am so happy that you liked the tour and enjoyed your time in Budapest. Thanks much again for your kind words and to gave me a chance to be your guide! Best wishes and greetings from Hungary for All!
Claude CheneUnited Kingdom
Rashad was extremely knowledgeable and a good guide to the city. He took us on an 8 hour tour that covered all the key spots and was able to discuss both recent and more ancient history. A few knowledge gaps on more arcane matters but overall a very nice man to spend the day with, well prepared and very accommodating with what we wanted to see.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks much for your review! It was very nice to meet you! Best wishes!
Robert WillerUnited States
We were a little concerned setting this up over the net without really knowing who and what we were getting into. Our concerns dissolved when Rashad walked into our hotel lobby to greet us exactly on time. Our 8 1/2 hour tour was great. His historical knowledge of Budapest and Hungary was incredible. He did everything advertised for the tour and besides that is a very nice person. We loved Budapest and Hungary and will be returning again - next time will book two days with him. Rob and Stephanie in NH
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rob and Stephanie, Thank you so much! It was a pleasure to be your guide. Hope to meet again. Much greetings from Hungary, Rashad

Laila LindbladUnited States
Rashad was absolutely amazing! He gave my husband, two month old baby, and I a private tour of Budapest and the level of his knowledge regarding the history, culture, and society of Budapest left us all in complete awe. We walked away feeling great and with a much greater appreciation for Budapest and Hungary, and we can't wait to come back. Rashad was also friendly, engaging, and intelligent, and we recommend him to any and all English speaking tourists. Thank you very much, Rashad! -Lindblad Family
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. and Mrs. Lindblad, Thank you so much for your kind review. It was much pleasure and good experience to be with you and Camilia, the smallest and the most beautiful guest I ever had. Much greetings for all the family and see you again in Hungary!
Paula MichaudUnited States
Rashad as a former history teacher was a perfect tour guide for a full day in Budapest. His knowledge of the history of Budapest, Hungary and the context through time was extensive. He was sensitive to individual needs. He paced the day to our level of fitness and inquired about our interests so he could tailor his commentary. He demonstrated obvious love of his country and of his work as a tour guide. The day passed quickly, and Rashad remained energetic right to the end. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paula! Thanks much for your dear comment. As you said the time went so fast with you, it was very joyable. Wish you the best! Rashad
Mary BeattyUnited States
Rashad was very professional. Before we left he made sure we had the appropriate gear. He was flexible with our physical needs and individual preferences for places to see. His presentation of Hungarian history was engaging and linked to the historical sites we visited. We would hire him again for the 8 hours any time because his presentation style invited questions and discussion which made for a day of engaging conversation. He was kind, considerate and even took us to a grocery story. Five stars!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks much for your nice review, i was really good day for me too, wish you nice travel and happy holiday. And much greetings to Lee
