If you're looking for someone that knows Budapest and specifically it's history Andrea is your gal! We had a whirlwind tour as we were only in town for the day and I felt as though we now have a Doctorate in the history of Hungary and Budapest in particular.

Andrea did a awesome job. She gave us insight into the lives of the Hungarian people, their cities, and political situations. We had 4 on our tour and all where very impressed, and we all confirmed at the end of our vacation, that Andrea by far was the best.

I booked a tour with Andrea very last minute (48 hours before) on the internet and wasn't sure what to expect. I needn't have worried - it was excellent. Andrea was friendly, informative and a short email exchange beforehand meant she covered my particular interests (photography) by showing me the real Budapest. She met me punctually at 9am at my hotel and from there we walked for 4 hours exploring Budapest - the familiar and the not so familiar. It was a brilliant tour and the highlight of my week.

Our tour with Andrea was fantastic and gave us a great appreciation for the city. We loved that Andrea had us use mass transportation—it was the fastest way around and really helped us understand the city. Andrea's pride in Budapest came through and made the tour that much more special. I would recommend her and Tours By Local to anyone.

Got a call at last minute that another associate would give tour. Panka gave us a great tour and was very good. Got plenty of information.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: In the unusual case where a guide can't personally deliver a tour, the traveler is notified in advance and given the opportunity to cancel or accept the substitute - in this case Panka, the guide's daughter, and another ToursByLocals guide.

In some countries you're invited to spend the night at the indigeneous's but when you have explanations & testimony from the inside living native, you're on a step higher! Enriching, a panel of focuses, we realy found the tour useful & interesting during a short stay.
Andrea was wonderful! Very knowledgeable, very easy to understand, and a really nice person! She made the tour interesting for us and in spite of the downpour when we started our day, she was able to make the day a really good experience for us. I highly recommend doing a tour with Andrea!!

Andrea was very knowledgable and let us direct her to some of the places of interest. Excellent review of the old Jewish quarter but also a trip over to the Buda side. Also, she provided us lots of ideas for our own tours and information about various places. Budapest was excellent!.
Michelle BrowningUnited States
Andrea was fantastic! She really knew the city and the culture. Andrea gave us amazing recommendations and tried to customize the tour as much as possible to what we wanted to see and our schedule. She has children, so she was aware of what young adults would like and places that are popular. Even with the rain, she was absolutly fantastic.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Michelle, I hope you are doing great. It is already becoming spring here that we really appreciate. Thank you for taking your time sending your comment on our tour. Although it turned to be a rainy day we could cover a lot of Budapest. I am glad to add a little extra to your stay here. Thank you again. I am looking forward to seeing you again on an other occasion. Warm regards, Andrea

She was a special lady. Accommodated our needs in the heat. Gave us the information we needed. Made us feel at home in this beautiful city. Highly recommend her. This was our first time using tours by locals. We will use again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: A big hello to the Maheimers, I hope this finds you well. Budapest is still boiling, actually it has been the way ever since you visited here. In spite of the heat I hope you took good memories from our beloved city, Budapest. Warm regards, Andrea

Wonderful tour with Andrea last year. We really enjoyed our time in Budapest and having Andrea alongside to explain her countrys culture, history and architecture made all the difference. She is warm and pleasant company and we would highly recommend her. Even our 11 year old daughter was kept entertained throughout the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Linda, I hope this note finds you and your family in the best of health. It's been a year this week you visited Budapest with your family. I really appreciate your comment on our walking tour. You were my very first guests through ToursByLocals so I would never forget meeting you and of course your lovely daughter. I wish you had great travel plans for this summer. When ever you plan a visit to Hungary again I would be happy to show you more of our country. Have a great summer! Warm regards, Andrea
