Our group really enjoyed our day tour with Rashad. He was very informative about the sights we saw, without information overload. He was cheerful with a good sense of humor and he kept us moving all day. We stopped at a unique food truck area for lunch, one which we likely would not have found ourselves. We covered all of the major sites, and some we would not have seen on our own. All in all, a great day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dolores, Thanks a lot for your kind review! It was a great time with you! I am happy that you left with nice memories! Much much greetings from Budapest and best wishes! Rashad

Rashad was fantastic. He met us right on time at our apartment. He had an excellent plan for us and is a wealth of information which he gives in a very interesting and entertaining manner. We were two couples and he was very flexible with our questions and our timeline. He gave us a lot of good tips about what to see after the tour. He familiarized us with the public transportation system which we used for the rest of the weekend. I highly recommend him for your Budapest visit.

I highly recommend Rashad as a guide. I had requested a highly special, single day tour with pick up in Slovakia, visit to the remote Kekes mountain top and drop off in Budapest. Rashad corresponded with me to understand my requirements and he made the detailed arrangements. Two days prior to my tour, he kindly helped me reschedule, due to weather. Rashad has a vast knowledge of Hungary's history and culture. We had great conversation - in several languages! I very much enjoyed Rashad as my guide

Rashad was the best of all the guides that we have used by Tours By Locals, as well as by another tour company on a different tour. He was most knowledgeable, personable, pleasant, giving us the feeling that he was a friend. He presented throughout the tour historical background, placing each site into a contemporary prospectus. His enthusiasm created an environment which piqued our curiosity and desire for more knowledge of Budapest. He tailored the tour to our liking and was able to fully address all

Rashad is an amazing tour guide; perhaps the best tour guide we have ever had! If you get the chance to take a tour with him, book it quick before someone else has the chance. While traveling in Budapest with 4 adults and 3 children (11, 9, 7) Rashad kept us interested and engaged for over 5 hours. Not an easy feat! His wealth of knowledge was expansive. He was able to answer random questions thrown to him by my children. He was very flexible and personalized our tour. Next time, we will be calling him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lisa, Thanks a lot for your great review and your kind message, it made me more than happy! Really it was so nice to meet with such a beautiful family! I did feel as though I spend my day with very kind friends. I hope we will keep in touch! I wish you all the best and I hope we'll meet again!!! Much much greetings! Rashad

Fantastic day. In addition to a complete tour of the city's landmarks and districts, what we learned from Rashad about the history and culture of Hungary, Budapest, and it's people from the 9th century to today was outstanding. The tour's combination of walking and use of public transportation gave us an excellent sense of the city and enabled us to be very efficient in continuing our visit to Budapest. Would recommend Rashad and his tour to any first time visitor to Budapest.

Rashad is in one word outstanding!!! If you want a guide that is enthusiastic a wealth of information and serious about giving you the facts in an unvarnished way, then he is your man. Rashad was able to answer all our questions, he was informative not only on history but current events. We had been in Budapest for a few days and seen some of the main attractions and Rashad in 2 minuts gave us many alternatives. Rashad is one of our all time favorite guides.

Rashad provided one of the best tours I've ever had. He exceeded all expectations! His knowledge of Budapest is phenomenal and he provided honest insight into Hungary's history. Rashad planned the day to make the most of our time in Budapest but he was accommodating when we wanted to make unplanned stops (lunch in the market!!!). Hiring Rashad + car/driver will provide the best tour possible. His goal is clearly customer satisfaction. You'll never do a group tour again! I definitely recommend him!

Rashad was a wonderful tour guide, we had just flown into Budapest from the states and had no sleep. Rashad altered our plans slightly and made a stop at the famous New York Cafe so we could have coffee. The building was absolutely beautiful. He was able to cover a lot and keep us laughing and smiling the entire time. He has a wealth of knowledge. I would definitely take him tour again and would recommend him to anyone. Thanks again Rashad for making us feel so welcome!

Speaks perfect English, showed up even before scheduled time and after the tour gave us great tips on what else to see, including the famous bath. In short 4 hours we saw and learn so much.

Rashad was truly exceptional. We travel the world and have had a number of tours. We covered a lot of ground in 4 hours and what made his tour particularly interesting was we went to a variety of places. If you tour a lot, it's easy to get tired of churches and it's nice to see some areas that aren't as touristy. Rashad did that, and was very generous with his time and energy. I highly recommend you engage this talented tour guide!

MUST DO THIS TOUR! Rashad's tour is our 7th ToursByLocals tour in Europe this year, and he deserves more than a 5-star rating! His detailed knowledge of Hungarian history spans from Roman times to the current day politics. He expanded on Austro-Hungarian Empire factoids since we currently live in Vienna. He accommodated our group of 4 adults, including 1 in a wheelchair, and 2 toddlers. This was not our first visit, yet Rashad made this trip so special that it sparked a renewed love for the city.

We cannot recommend Rashad more highly. Rashad is extremely knowledgeable of Hungarian history as well as the role of Jews living in the interesting land. Rashad was sensitive to our particular limitations and went the extra mile to enhance our tour. I often, regrettably, don't take the time to leave feedback , but if you are fortunate enough to book Rashad while in Budapest, your visit will appreciate his character and disposition.

Rashad was an excellent guide. We learned a lot about Hungarian history just at our first stop at Heroes' Square. He had a great tour set up and modified it based on our interests and our walking abilities, since we had a group of 10 people ranging from 75 to 8 years old. Extra thanks for agreeing to take the remaining group up to the top of Gellert Hill at the end of the tour. It's a good hike up, but the views make it worth the effort.

Rashad is an outstanding tour guide! His tour is a bargain! He is a very likeable and enthusiastic person whose knowledge of his hometown is unsurpassed. If you are Jewish, just know that Rashad has your history covered. He enriched the time we spent at the Dohany Street Synagogue. We covered so much ground during the tour -- first on the Pest side and then finishing on the Buda side. You will be tired after 8 hours, but you will also know that Rashad's tour was comprehensive, as promised. Bravo!

I would like to convey my many thanks to Rashad for a excellent and wonderful tour today. Rashad is very knowledgeable in history and his presentation is in perfect English. I would rate Rashad at even higher than the 5 stars to at least 100 plus stars. I will recommend Rashad to my friends who come to Budapest and should I return, hopefully one day, Rashad would be my tour guide again. I am so happy that Rashad was my perfect tour guide and very attentive! Thank you so much and thank you again, Rashad

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Margie! Thank you so much for your kindness! Really it was very nice day! I hope to meet again and of course till that time we keep in touch because as I said you have a friend in Hungary and really wish you the best and greetings to all your family! God bless You!

Rashad was extremely knowledgeable and a good guide to the city. He took us on an 8 hour tour that covered all the key spots and was able to discuss both recent and more ancient history. A few knowledge gaps on more arcane matters but overall a very nice man to spend the day with, well prepared and very accommodating with what we wanted to see.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks much for your review! It was very nice to meet you! Best wishes!

Having the privilege to travel again after overcoming a health challenge cannot be understated. Life is good! Rashad provided an amazing, flexible and informative tour of Budapest. We learned so much in a friendly, collaborative style that the time flew by and we left simply with a very positive experience. Thank you Rashad for doing a great job for my wife and I and ensuring we saw everything we could including places that very few will see! We'll remember this day for the rest of our lives!

Today we had a walking tour of Budapest. Our tour guide was Rashad. We have had many walking tours in many countries over the years. This was our first with ToursByLocals. We found Rashad to be an excellent guide. He was prompt, courteous, friendly and exceedingly knowledgeable. His English was impeccable. Of all the guides that we have ever had Rashad stood out as the best. We would recommend him to my friends and anyone else considering tours by locals.

We were a little concerned setting this up over the net without really knowing who and what we were getting into. Our concerns dissolved when Rashad walked into our hotel lobby to greet us exactly on time. Our 8 1/2 hour tour was great. His historical knowledge of Budapest and Hungary was incredible. He did everything advertised for the tour and besides that is a very nice person. We loved Budapest and Hungary and will be returning again - next time will book two days with him.

Rashad was wonderful! He was early to meet us at our hotel and stayed later to be sure we didn't miss anything he wanted us to see. We asked him to change the itenerary a little as we had already seen some of the sights, and he changed it without hesitation, so we were able to see many interesting things and learned a lot. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Budapest and Hungary. We asked many questions about current events and issues and he was very good at that also. Bravo!!

Rashad as a former history teacher was a perfect tour guide for a full day in Budapest. His knowledge of the history of Budapest, Hungary and the context through time was extensive. He was sensitive to individual needs. He paced the day to our level of fitness and inquired about our interests so he could tailor his commentary. He demonstrated obvious love of his country and of his work as a tour guide. The day passed quickly, and Rashad remained energetic right to the end. Highly recommended!

As our chosen guide was unable to take us on our Budapest tour we were very pleased when Rashad was able to step in at the last minute. We were also happy for our day to become a full day tour rather than the original half day that we booked as there was so much to see. Rashad was enthusiastic, knowledgable and a great ambassador for his city. We are now really keen to come back to Budapest and spend more time in this lovely city.

Rashad was an incredible guide! His knowledge of the Budapest history was like a true storyteller. With my medical health he was so conscious of what we could do even providing an umbrella for shade. In 4 hours he made sure we saw what was important to us and filled in the time with great panoramic shots and more history. In the one day we had in Budapest he left us wanting to come back! Loved him!! He even gifted us a bottle of local wine.

His presentation of Hungarian history was engaging and linked to the historical sites we visited. We would hire him again for the 8 hours any time because his presentation style invited questions and discussion which made for a day of engaging conversation. He was kind, considerate and even took us to a grocery story. Five stars!

Rashad is a passionate, knowledgeable, delightful and great story teller. Rather than try and pick and choose what to see or not see in only four hours, suggested we combine the evening nightlife tour with the half day tour and make a day of it. And. We. Did! We fell in love with the city and learned so much more about Hungary and history than I ever imagined. Definitely book Rashad!

History buffs please take note that Rashid will have an answer to every one of your questions! We booked Rashid in Budapest and had an amazing day filled with unique information. Rashid is an educator, in fact he is a history professor. There is so much to see in Budapest that it's a great idea to have a guide and separate driver which we had in this tour. Often it's hard to park in Budapest, so keep that in mind when booking your tour. Wear comfortable walking shoes!

Rashad is a very knowledgeable tour guide. We got to see all of the important sites in Budapest and his knowledge of Hungarian history is impressive. We had a mix up with the date of the tour (our fault, not his) and he was very accommodating with rescheduling. We like to take our time when we visit sites and he did his best to ensure we got to see all of the sites on the tour. He even stayed with us beyond the allotted time (for the driver) and allowed us to finish our tour.
