We were very pleased with the tour provided by Andrea and her driver, Ursula. Andrea was personable, knowledgeable and very proficient in English. It was enjoyable seeing the areas that tourists would not necessarily see -e.g., the Hilton Hotel in Buda built on Roman Ruins. It was also fun going through one of the larger Ruin Bars. Andrea seemed an expert on History, Architecture, and Food. We highly recommend her for a wonderful, fun and informative day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Linda and George, Thank you very much.I am so happy to hear, that our tour was a good experience for you. It was lovely to meet both of you.I was amazed to hear, that you were cycling on this long way and ornanized the whole trip on this professional way.I got to know 2 kind and cheerful people,and a very fit lady plus a real iron man at the same time. I will also tell Ursula,what you wrote,and I am sure,she will be happy too. I am wishing you all the Best and many other great trips. Andrea

Andrea was great! She had a wealth of knowledge regarding local history, helped us get to know the area and how to use public transit, and did some great extra research to help us find some very good, obscure venues. She tailored her tour to our interests and abilities and kept in touch with us during the rest of our trip. Could not have been happier!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dan,thank you very much for your kind words. It was nice and interesting to meet all of you.I visited your website and I found videos at Youtube. I am sure you create a very good atmosphere,when you play. See you tonight at the Folk song club. Andrea

Andrea was fantastic and speaks fluent English. We had a 7 hour tour for 4 people & we were all thrilled with our experience. Budapest is a lovely city with a complex history & Andrea knew all her history facts. She was an absolute delight and we all recommend her highly. Our driver Ursula was equally friendly. We spent a wonderful day & worth having Andrea guide us around fabulous Budapest Would love to return someday. Thanks Andrea for a lovely day

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lynn, Thank you very much. : ) I am also thrilled to hear you were having a great time with us in Budapest. It was wonderful to meet all of you. I wish you a beautiful trip, and I am sending my Greetings to Steve, Norma and Loren. I am wishing you All the Best: Andrea

Andrea was very kind and also very knowledgeable. We enjoyed our tour. The tour lasted a hour longer than scheduled because she was enthusiastic about getting all the sites in. She was a little soft spoken and sometimes had to find her words. She took us to everything we wanted to see and her directions were spot on. Thanks Andrea for a fine day.

Great tour and knowledable guide. We had booked 2 half day walking tours of Budapest with Andrea and she did not only give us the highlights of the city, but also was able to give us deeper information about each site. We enjoyed her deep knowledge and company.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Thomas, Thank you very much. I liked your whole Family very much, and I am happy to hear that you were having a nice time on our tour. I hope you had a nice time at the Danube bend too. I am wishing you All the Best. Andrea

While a very nice person, our guide was not very good at transmitting the information to our entire group and did a poor job of time management. It was our feeling she needed more training and a better understanding of projection when speaking to a group and maintaining eye contact.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Karen, I hope you had a pleasant journey, and you feel better now. About timing: To tell you the truth, it haven't ever happened, that a visitor felt unwell on the tour, and I was really worried. Obviously we adjusted the plan, because of this unexpected situation. Regarding my skills, I am always happy to learn, so I consider your advice, thank you very much.I respect your judgement.

Andrea was exceptional and I highly recommend her. We had a half day tour and could have easily spent a full day with her. She was knowledgeable about the history, the culture, the food, and more. She told great stories that brought the city to life through the ages. What's really special is how comfortable she is as a guide, knowing how to customize the tour for you, when to stop and take in the view or the history, when to walk or take the metro or tram or boat. We are grateful for the experience!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Linda, Thank you very much for your review. I am happy to read it. : ) It was a pleasure to meet Ryan and You. You are not only fit, but also kind, well-informed, and open minded people. I hope you liked the restaurant. I wish you pleasant evening and another great day for tomorrow.

Our group loved our short tour with Andrea. We had initially visited the city without a guide and had a lot of questions. The time with Andrea gave a lot of color to the city and its history. In addition to all of this, Andrea just seemed like a fantastic person, whom we felt lucky to get to know.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Fenton, Our tour was a special experience for me. Thank you very much for coming and many thanks for sharing your opinion about the tour. You can see your picture in my gallery at half day tours, or I can send it to you personally, just let me know your e-mail address. Please send my Greetings to your sister and your cousins. It would be nice to meet your brother too, when he is in Budapest. Warm Regards: Andrea

Andrea is a knowledgeable guide with education in history and the political changes over the centuries. She knows her stuff. Very pleasant experience visiting Budapest special features with Andrea as our guide for 9 people. Only flaw was the PA system in the van. The a/c overpowered the front only speakers making it difficult to hear at the back. Driver was cooperative and Andrea was able to vary the tour to meet our wishes. Especially loved visiting the boots monument by the river, and cosy restaurant.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Percy, Thank you very much for the compliment. I am happy to meet all of you. It was very interesting to talk to you and learn more about the life in your country. I am sorry for the inconvenience, I tried to solve the problem on the tour, and right after we met, I asked the bus company about it. They checked and fixed it. I am wishing you All the Best Andrea

Andrea was delightful to spend the day with! She met us promptly at our hotel and customized our day around our location and interests. She gave a very good overview of the history of the sights that we were seeing and interjected some historical connections between Hungary and the USA. Andrea also shared her own background growing up in Hungary which was very interesting to us. Knowing that I like to take lots of photos, she helped get us in great position for camera shots and took some photos of us

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Grant, Thank you very much for your kind words. I am very happy to read that you liked the tour and you were having a great time in Budapest.It was lovely to meet both of you. I hope you had a pleasant (although long) journey back. I am wishing you all the Best and billions more steps : )

My wife and I enjoyed our walking tour of Budapest with Andrea very much. She is exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly and she took care to make sure what sites we wanted to see, and check periodically to see how we were doing and ask if we needed a break (we walked a lot, so while we didn't need any breaks, some people would have). Finally, she went out of her way to give us a tour on New Year's Day, a holiday, which many guides would not. We highly recommend Andrea as a tour guide in Budapest!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tim, Thank you very much coming. It was great to start the Year with You. I am happy to hear that you liked the tour and you were not too tired. I wish you a Joyful Happy New Year and Good Health ! Very Best Wishes: Andrea
