We had 3 days in Budapest, engaged Melinda for all 3 days, and she arranged our morning arrival airport transfer with her favorite, and very helpful, driver Andras. On this, the first day, Melinda arranged a custom 3-hour afternoon walking tour of the historic area, and met us at our apartment one block north of St Stephen's Cathedral. This walking tour was most helpful to acquaint us with the general area. Melinda suggested, and we enjoyed, a fine dinner at Café Kör.

Four of us (all seniors) booked Melinda for two days, one day Buda and one day Pest. She is an excellent guide, very professional, with detailed knowledge of her city. We had lunch with her both days and truly enjoyed her company. Melinda also went out of her way to help us with Budapest hotels and transportation to Prague, our next stop. She has our highest recommendation! M. Vaughan

Melinda was great, very knowledgable and friendly. We had a half day in Budapest to get to see the highlights, and Melinda took us EVERYWHERE! We did so many different sites of this beautiful city in only 4 hours. We did not have a private car, we used public transportation (Metro and bus) and it was very easy. Melinda also gave us some recommendations to see the following day and suggest a spectacular night cruise on the Danube.

Fabulous! We learned so much from Melinda and enjoyed our time with her. To save time, she gave us the option of taking the subway, which was a great adventure.
Susan WauerGeneva, ILLINOIS, United States
If you are visiting Budapest; Melinda is the guide you'll want! From our first communication she was informative and helpful in arranging a customized tour that highlighted our interests and needs. Her encyclopedic knowledge of Buda, Pest, and Hungary is amazing and thoughtfully shared. She even went so far as to contact me prior to starting our trip to suggest a car rental instead of public transportation because it would be raining and cold. We could not have a better introduction to Budapest.

We had a great tour of Budapest with Melinda. Very knowledgeable. She went beyond showing the major sites and discussed life and living in Budapest. She also helped us plan the rest of our day. We would recommend her without reservation.
Ryan BogostaUnited States
I cannot say enough good things about Melinda and the tour. Everything was so personalized and laid back that it felt more like walking around a new city with an old friend than it did a tour. Especially coming to Budapest for the first time, it was really nice that Melinda arranges to meet at your location, so that there is no stress of needing to figure out how to rendezvous. I would suggest Melinda and the walking tour to anyone travelling to Budapest, first time or otherwise. Thanks again Melinda!
We arrived in Budapest December 18 with two 50+ couples.To make a long story very short: Melinda deserved the five stars for her services, and even more than that. She is a professional, proud to share her in depth knowledge and love for Hungary and Budapest. Her knowledge about the English language is perfect. Melinda also has a very nice personality. When we go back to Budapest we Will first check if Melinda is available!

Melinda was enthusiastic, helpful, fun and very resourceful. Her tour took us to many parts of the city, and also taught us how to use the public transportation system. We encountered some delays and roadblocks due to political visits, but she worked around these and came up with interesting alternatives. We learned a lot!
Thanks, Melinda, for a wonderful tour of your beautiful city. Excellent service, informative, and tailored exactly to our needs. Highly recommended - Melinda is knowledgeable, personable, flexible, and completely fluent in English. As it was so hot (37 deg C), we decided at the last minute to utilize a car. Kudos to our driver, Daniel, who is a calm, courteous, and safe driver.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan, thank you, I hope you had a fantastic holiday altogether and welcome back any time :)
This is a fantastic tour to introduce you to Budapest. Melinda gave us an excellent overview of some of the key historical events relevant to Hungary and Budapest and took us to all the major things to see. Melinda is the perfect guide. We enjoyed our time with her so much that we booked a follow up tour with her called "Off the Beaten Path" which is a natural extension to this introductory tour. Everyone travelling to Budapest should do these 2 tours with Melinda!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Matt, Thank you for the kind words, I enjoyed both tours a lot, and also the drinks at the end ;-) Warmest regards from the chilly Budapest, Melinda
Melinda was punctual, courteous and professional both before and during the tour. She emailed to confirm meeting point and time, was very careful with our safety on trains, buses and road crossings and modified the tour based on our particular interests. Her informative dialogue and friendly, open responses to our questions ensured that we saw both the built and human side of Budapest. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Phil, Thank you for your kind words! Warm regards from the chilly Budapest :) Melinda
Matt MacMillanUnited States
Arrived right on time, prepared, knowledgable, well-paced, flexible, kind. Many of the sites in Budapest are spread out, so we spent time learning the tram, bus & Metro to get around. A nice orientation tour and we accepted recommendations from her to see other sites on our own.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Matt, thank you, hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay, as well. Merry Christmas :-)
Maria LevyUnited States
Melinda was professional, friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We had booked a four hour tour but decided quickly to add two more hours. The six hour tour felt comprehensive, unhurried, relaxed and informative. It was exactly what we were hoping for, and we would gladly recommend Melinda K. to anyone who is considering a tour with a local guide. It's the best way to see the city and really feel the pulse of the place. Thanks!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Masha, I enjoyed this day a lot in your company, hope to see you back in Hungary one day :)
