Katalin was very knowledgeable, personable and attentive to our requests. Because we travelled from Vienna our day started 3 1/2 hours before the tour started and we were a bit concerned about the length of the tour; however, our time with Katalin flew by and we enjoyed every minute. Budapest is a wonderful place to visit and Katalin is a gem.

Our tour with Katalin was excellent. She was prompt, professional, knowledgeable and friendly. We were able to see all the main sights and learned a great deal about the city and its history. She also picked wonderful spots to stop for lunch and coffee. It was a very enjoyable day.

Tour: #396755, Following the River Danube in Hungary Day Trip, Budapest, Budapest, Hungary    view tour
Date: Aug 28/19

Our second with Katalin, she created a tour for us as we had already seen the Danube Bend and Szentendre. We visited Sisi's palace in Godollo, had coffee and pastry at a delightful little out of the way shop, travelled to Vac to see the town and visit the mummies, then to Esztergom and the cathedral viewed inside and out and from Slovakia. On the way back we stopped to photograph the Roman ruins. A great tour during which she gave us all sorts of insight into the venues. What a great way to end a trip!

Date: Aug 27/19

We travelled with Katalin on the final two days of a two week trip that included a cruise on the Danube. She provided the perfect finale. On our first day together we got out of Budapest into the countryside with a visit to lovely Lake Balaton. Throughout the day she provided us with fascinating, encyclopedic insight into the attractions we visited in her warm and friendly manner.

I have limited mobility and Kati rearranged her normal routine to satisfy my needs and still made my wife, who can walk, very happy with the tour. Her knowledge of the history of Hungary and the beautiful buildings was extraordinary. Kati made our stay in Budapest very memorable.

Katalin is a super guide. Energetic, knowledgeable and passionate about her country. We spent an afternoon in the castle area and learned much about the history of Budapest. Katalin was VERY flexible. Our ship was late by several hours and she kindly rearranged her schedule to meet us. I feel enriched by the time we spent with her. Thank you Katalin for a wonderful tour!

Katalin was very accommodating. She took us to every site we requested as well as other "must sees" in the city. She was very knowledgeable and attentive to all of our needs. Both she and her driver were friendly and easy going and I would recommend them highly.

Katalin met us in our hotel and took us by driver to the Roman ruin, Aquincum. She spoke excellent English and when showing us around the ruins, made the Roman site come alive. We felt like we were walking down the Roman street with the chariots making their mark. We can highly recommend her.

Our tour of Aquincum was one of the best guided tours I've ever experienced. Daniel, our guide, was very knowledgeable about Roman life, the town of Aquincum, the excavations, and museum and lapidary artifacts. He answered questions, he helped us see and figure out what we were looking at and how things worked. The town itself allows you to see and experience walking through an ancient Roman town, and along with the artists' renditions Daniel showed us along the way really brought the town to life.

Katalin did a great job of showing us Budapest. We were on a river cruise, so we gave her what we would see with the cruise and she adjusted our tour so we did not duplicate things we were schedule to see with the cruise. She has a true love for the city and her knowledge was very informative for the history and special places to see and do. She made recommendations for places to eat and do for our extended stay in Budapest. We would highly recommend her if you want a fun and informative tour in Budapest.

Katalin went out of her way to accommodate the unusual requirements of our special project that called upon her skills as a translator and her knowledge of locations off the normal path for tours. She was very flexible in adapting to our needs, even in the face of some initial miscommunication. We appreciate the time she spent with us and recommend her services for any travellers to the wonderful city of Budapest.

Kathy was an incredible guide ! She was very personable and attentive to our group's wishes & always put us 1st. Her English was very good and she was very adept at explaining what we were looking. Kathy took as all over Budapest and you could tell that she really enjoys her work and that she loves her native city of Budapest. Her tour was the highlight of our stay in Budapest. I give my highest recommendation to Kathy for her outstanding job and it was a pleasure to spend 5 hour on her tour !

Our tour with Katalin through Tours By Locals was awesome. She corresponded with us about changes that we wanted to the itinerary and also what we might like to see on our own for our extra days we were in Budapest. Very good suggestions. Her historical commentary was so interesting and enlightening. My husband is not the walker that the rest of the group was, but she always found a nice coffee house where he could enjoy the sights. Very accommodating and our 8 hours with Katalin were too short.

Loved our time with Katy in Budapest. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable about her city and the story of the Jewish people there, she also has a personal history and was willing to share those stories as well. The driver was also very polite and a safe driver. Vehicle was new and clean. Would highly recommend Katy as a tour guide while in Budapest!

Watch out Pompeii, Buda has Aquincumi! Katalin was on time, professional, friendly, kind, and very knowledgeable about the history of Budapest, and of course she knew all about the Roman ruins. We really enjoyed this outing immensely, and we learned a lot about history, archeology, engineering, and the daily life of the ancients, and even some about the modern era. Our family says thumbs up! ��

Excellent tour along the Danube River. Enjoyed the locations that Katalin picked for us to see. She knows the history plus we enjoyed talking about the recent times, the people, culture, and her views and family experiences. Katalin took us to a great location for lunch in the forest with excellent food. She was also very flexible to modify the tour as we needed.

Fabulous tour to the paprika-growing area of Kalocsa. Excellent Guide Katalin took us to the Folk Art House in Kalocsa, St. Mary Cathedral, Archbishop's Palace, Paprika Museum, and Kalocsa Porcelain Manufacture. On the way back to Budapest, we watched a wonderful performance at Tanyacsárda Hungarian Horse Show at Lajosmizse with dinner afterwards at the ranch-owned restaurant. It was a day never to forget.
