Rashad led one of the best tours we've ever taken: authoritative and assured on content but also accessible in presentation. He has a plan and a point of view—he has a deep sense of place and knowledge of history—but is fundamentally human and works to create a connection with his guests. We peppered him with lots of questions and remembrances and he would both answer the questions and keep us on track (intellectually and in terms of time). Five stars for sure. Even 6!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Scott, Thank you so much for your great review and kind message! It was my pleasure to be your guide! I am very happy that you enjoyed your time in Budapest! All the best and very happy, successful new year!

We chose Rashad as our guide from a referral by a friend. He did not disappoint. He was able to give us a comprehensive understanding of the history of Budapest in our 8 hour tour. We are so glad we chose to have a separate driver, Atilah was great, as we never could have covered all of Buda and Pest without. Rashad was passionate and extremely knowledgeable. We would highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jonathan and Monique, Thanks a lot for your great review and kind message! I am so happy to know that you enjoyed the tour! It was very nice to meet you! I wish you all the best! Much greetings for Jay and Karen!

We had a great day touring Budapest with Rashad - effective, educational and fun! Although we were a group of ten, also eager to just socialise, he kept us on track, shared his many stories and gave us several recommendations to explore after the tour. We would gladly go again and we highly recommend Rashad for your tour.

Rashad was an absolutely fantastic guide. We Highly Highly Highly recommend him. He is super knowledgeable, interesting, and passionate about his topics and his country, offering a compelling mix of statistics and stories. We wanted to see quite a lot and Rashad made it work with trams, busses, metro etc in a way that we could never have managed to figure out . Rashad was also super flexible based on our interests. Thank you Rashad for making history and current events come to life in Budapest

We used Rashad as our tour guide on two different tours. We couldn't have made a better decision. Our first tour with Rashad was a general view of Budapest. I wish I could have copied my comments that I left on that tour to this. To say we were satisfied with Rashad would truly be an understatement. He is knowledgeable, friendly, and a great listener. He wants to please you and conducts his tour as a memorable experience and not as a job. He is truly the best! By the way, we are not related! Jerry K.

We have never been more happy with a tour guide as we were with Rashad. He was very knowledgeable, extremely friendly, and most importantly he wanted to make the experience memorable. He did not try to overwhelm you with facts and was interested in your questions. He had a great sense of humor which made the experience even more enjoyable. By the end of the tour, you did not feel as if you hired a tour guide but was shown the city of Budapest by a friend. He was truly the best! Jerry K.

He has an incredible fund of knowledge on Hungarian history. Exceptionally knowledgeable about the Holocaust. Gave an informative and honest portrayal of the Hungarian Jewish experience, particularly during World War II. Very empathetic about Jewish persecution. Request him for your tour of the Jewish Quarter. You will not be disappointed.

We were in Budapest celebrating our 50th anniversary following a river cruise. We had several excursions with tour guides, but Rashad, hands down, was by far the best guide we had. We thank him for the time and attention he gave us while visiting Szentendre and surrounding area. Rashad S is an asset to Tours by Locals.

Rashad's previous experience as a history teacher was clearly helpful in the way he threaded narratives about different sites and people in a fun and engaging way for us during the day in Budapest. He had an excellent itinerary planned and was flexible to accomodate our interests and preferences as well. We feel fortunate to have had an easy-going and incredibly knowledgeable guide to this wonderful city. Thank you Rashad! Logistics could not have been easier. We also enjoyed taking public transport

Rashad gave us a very insightful and memorable tour in Budapest. We did the Budapest Jewish Heritage Tour and his depth of knowledge is extremely amazing. He gives you the good and the bad of the history of Jews in Budapest. I felt it was quite emotional and extremely important. I think this is an important tour that you should take while visiting Budapest. I was extremely impressed with his English and his care of this important part of his countries History. Don't miss out insightful tour!

We would highly recommend a tour with Rashad for anyone with limited time in Budapest. We had him as our guide on his 8-hour city tour. He is extremely knowledgeable, accommodating, flexible, and patient. His English is excellent, he has a great sense of humour, and is passionate about his city and country. We not only saw most if not all of the major attractions of Budapest, but also some gems that one would miss out on if sightseeing on one's own.Thanks again, Rashad, we had a wonderful time with you.

Rashad is an excellent guide. He is a genuinely nice guy and is very knowledgeable about the history and buildings, statues, points of interest of Budapest and Hungary and surrounding countries. We learned a lot in our 4 hours and got in most of the main historical sites with a combination of walking and public transportation. We had been to Budapest previously and had taken a tour but learned and saw so much more with Rashad.
