Andrea has been a great guide. She was accompagnied by a driver so that she was fully dedicated to us. We saw and learned more in a four hours tour than exploring the city by ourselves during a whole WE. Definitely worth the money.
Suzy MeekUnited States

We had three half days with Andrea and enjoyed them thoroughly. She is a wealth of knowledge. Five stars--I know so much more about this country and its history than I thought possible to absorb in three days.
Frank CushingUnited States
Andrea is a FABULOUS tour guide and an even better person. Extremely knowledgeable, informative, friendly and she has a great sense of humor. The customized itinerary she set up was perfect. Her tours were the highlight of our 12 day European vacation. If you are in Budapest and don't book with Andrea, you will have missed a tremendous opportunity to learn about and experience Hungarian culture and sights in a short time with the best guide in the area.
Shari LevitanUnited States
We transferred to Budpest on the morning of our late afternoon tour with Andrea. Our four hour orientation tour (in a chauffeur driven, luxury car!) was the perfect way explore and learn about the history and sights of both Pest and Buda. Andrea's extensive knowledge and personal family stories made our tour even more meaningful, particularly when she spoke about the periods of anti-Semitism, WWII, and the Communist era in her hometown.
John JeffreysUnited States
Andrea and her driver Josef were punctual and delightful. They both spoke excellent English. Traffic was heavy due to all of the upcoming events but Josef knew how to maneuver through Buda and Pest efficiently so we could complete the tour. Andrea took us to places the average tourist would not have seen. She provided an excellent insight into Hungary, its history, culture and everyday life. She was very patient in answering our questions and had a good sense of humor. We highly recommend them both.
Richard KyptaUnited States
Andrea was very knowledgeable and provided a tour with an excellent mix of major historical sites and areas frequented by the locals. The vehicle and driver were also excellent and the tour had a good ratio of walking to driving.
Virginia BurkeUnited States
Andrea was the best. My daughter and I had just arrived in Budapest a day early for a Danube River cruise. We were severely jet-lagged from our red eye flight, but Andrea kept us alert and happy for our 4 hour private tour, with a car and driver. She tailored the tour to our interests and gave us so much information in a friendly, conversational style. It was absolutely the best way to get introduced to Budapest. I recommend Andrea to anyone who wants a professional,personable tour guide.
Caitlin RohdeUnited States
Andrea was a great tour guide. She accommodated our group when we ended up being an hour late for the tour, and even paid to use the restrooms before we had gotten out money! This is the perfect tour if you want to get a general overview of the whole city and are tired of doing full walking tours. This tour definitely made we want to visit Budapest again. Andrea and her driver were great! I would recommend them to friends.
Jack StoughtonUnited States
Outstanding. Andrea is very obviously proud of her country and her home town of "Pest-Buda" and demonstrates it as she weaves her stories as a young girl growing up here with the present. There were new adventures for us at every turn - and yet Andrea would be greeted by or greet friends everywhere. It really made you feel like you were part of this rich culture, at least for the day.
Jack StoughtonUnited States
Amazing tour, Andrea did not miss a beat, sharing the historical story of Budapest (Pest side) while weaving her own personal account into the story of her native country and city. Cannot wait to get back home to recommend her to others.
Heather BoardmanUnited States
What a delight! Extremely knowledgeable and extremely flexible, Andrea made the most of our time in the beautiful city of Budapest! It was a magical day and one that will always be remembered. Andrea will be part of our family history forever. Can't wait to go back!
Eliza GoodeUnited States
Andrea was a phenomenal tour guide who showed us all in just about 3 hours and then took us on a caving tour. She picked us up at our hotel with her great drivers, and customized the tour to our interests and time constraints. We loved that she talked the whole time because we learned so much about the history and lay out of the city! The information she shared was very interesting and really resonated with us. She dropped off us at one of her favorite restaurants at the end of the tour which was lovely.
Barbara MorrisUnited States
Andrea is very knowledgeable and highly enthusiastic. She is passionate about Hungary, but also wants visitors to have a clear understanding of the history as well as current political climate. The tour of The Terror House was a huge highlight. Very sobering, and without her we wouldn't have really understood what was going on. The visit to the Memento Park was well worth it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for thanking the tour with me on that very windy and clod day to the Memento Park and to the House of Terror. After this communist tour we can appreciate our freedom. Thank you for your feedback. Best regards, Andrea
Peg GantUnited States
My sister and I decided to forego the traditional Texas Thanksgiving hooplah and travel to a place we've never been - we picked Budapest and are more than pleased with the choice. We only had three days to see the sights and opted to go with Tours by Locals. Our choice was Andrea Because of her great tour choice. We hit a gold mine! Andrea filled our four hours with history, beauty, humor, and political and social insights. She loves her country but is candid about past missteps and bad judgments.Loved it
Dave DrohanUnited States
Wonderful tour with Andrea. She was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to listen to. We would highly recommend Andrea to other tourists.
Wendy SegallUnited States
Andrea was beyond perfect for us and our tour. We had requested MANY different things and She was beyond accomodating... We loved the day with Andrea and would recommend to anyone who asked. She is smart, fun, speaks perfect English and gave us a very memorable tour...thank you Andrea!!!!
Danielle de BruijnNetherlands
We were on a business trip and had a private tour with Andrea. Everything was perfectly arranged! She knows a lot about the city and its history and she will tell you everything about it. She knows the nice hotspots of the town. Everyone liked the tour, it was just perfect!!
Patricia SykesUnited Kingdom
This is great little half a day overview of Budapest. Andrea's knowledge was outstanding and her personality made everything come alive. This is a brilliant tour to take, if time is limited and you would like to see all the major sights. The transport was exceptional, with a very courteous driver. All the places Andrea recommended e.g. to eat and sights to see not covered on the tour, were spot on. We would thoroughly suggest Andrea as a guide to anyone who would like to see Budapest.
Chris MeiklejohnUnited Kingdom
Andrea was very knowledgeable. Our 4 hour tour was delivered in perfect english and full of interesting facts and stories. we would not hesitate to recommend her. we will visit again and Andrea will be our guide.
Alvin SchoenbergerUnited States
Andrea was excellent. She gave us a great introductory tour as we had just arrived. She was able to give us an objective interpretation of the Hungarian view of history, politics and culture but mixed in with her own opinions and often accompanied by a keen sense of humor. Our group of 4 all give her our highest ratings.
Byron ThompsonUnited States
A delightful 2days was spent with Andrea. Her choices of locations and places was spot on. Her knowledge of history and present was very informative and interesting. Would not hesitate to recommend her her to anyone!!!!!
Joseph KernerUnited States
Juditt was our tour guide for Budapest, and she is excellent. She is very knowledgeable about Budapest, very interesting, and packed a terrific tour in 4 hours. We had a great sense of the city after her tour. Juditt is very friendly and communicative. This tour was well worth the price.
Thomas KreilickUnited States

We had a wonderful tour with Andrea today as she showed us the many beautiful sights of Buda and Pest along with great historical information. She is very professional, yet very personal as well. We were able to see and learn so much and the pace of the tour was great. Thank you to Joseph for driving us and to Andrea for a very memorable day!
David TysonBolton, LANCASHIRE, United Kingdom
Andrea was the perfect guide- knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. We deviated significantly from the standard tour and that caused her no problems at all. She turned a good stay in Budapest into a great one
Er Luen LimSingapore
Gives interesting and humorous commentary. Knowledgeable and answers questions candidly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Er Luen Lim and family, I thank for taking the tour around in Budapest with me at the other day. I loved the company of the youngest, little member of your company. I wish I was able to give you a small sample of the spirit of our city and culture. I also hope you had a great experience at the dance event in spite of the weather conditions on Thursday night. In was nice meeting you all. I wish you all the best. Warm regards, Andrea Magyar
Andrea gave our family of 6 a van/walking tour thru Budapest. It was excellent. Andrea gave us information for all age groups stopping at monuments, markets, castle area etc. She even recommended a cave tour in the hills the next day which was very fun for the kids. Very informative and well worth the time. It allowed us to go back to places and explore after our tour. Her restaurant suggestions were also appropriate.
Jorja FeldmanUnited States
We found Andrea's tour very informative and enjoyable. She is both professional and easy to spend the afternoon with. She also was flexible when my husband wanted to take time to stop for a pastry and coffee. We would definitely recommend her.
Julie ChristopherUnited States
Andrea is perhaps the best guide we've ever had. We had a great day with her Andrea is extremely knowledgeable and shares that knowledge in an understandable way. We felt Andrea went the extra mile for us. The next day we had a lovely picture she had taken of us waiting at our hotel front deck. She made the city and it's history come alive. Julie
Neil HollowayUnited Kingdom
Andrea is amazing. Cheeful, helpful, flexible. Budapest is a wonderful city but Andrea's guiding made this a very special visit. There were four of us on the tour and she was able to cope with all our needs, including that one of our party has limited walking abaility. We shall cerainly be looking for her on our next visit in January.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Neil, Thank you so much for taking your time and writhing a nice comment about your tour to Budapest. I take it as a complement for Budapest, my home and for myself as well. I am looking forward to meeting you in the future again. Kind regards to all of you, Andrea
