OMG...Magdalena was not a tour guide but a friend we had not seen for awhile...My 20 yer old daughter said she was like her as an older sister and that just says it all...she is a young mom and super hip and cool...everyone would be happy with her but especially great on the younger side with nightlife and restaurant recommendations...thanks to Magdalena we had the best meal ever on our European adventure!/

Tour: Budapest Christmas Markets and Mulled Wine Tour, Budapest, Budapest, Hungary
Date: Dec 13/19

What a wonderful introduction to the beautiful Christmas Markets of Budapest! Magdalena was so sweet and considerate of our interests. Her English is excellent, as is her knowledge of Budapest and its history. She gave us great tips about which vendors were of the highest quality, and explained the overwhelming amount of food choices, which was a great help when we returned on our own for a meal. I especially appreciated knowing which mulled wine booths used the highest quality wines! So yummy!

Magdalena was outstanding. The tour coincided with a national holiday so many buildings were closed. She adjusted the itinerary and showed us several neighborhoods and historical sites ending in a trolley ride. We visited a cathedral and toured its gallery and rooftop balcony. Photos from the 10th floor are memorable. I was impressed with her adaptability, knowledge, upbeat spirit and genuine passion for her city. We had a great time!

Wonderful. Magdalena did a great job of showing us Budapest. We went to the top of the cathedral and to the rooftop 360 Bar for spectacular views. Magdalena was able to show an amazing amount of Budapest in only 3 hours and even squeezed in time for coffee and strudel. We had a great time.

We had a great custom tour with Magdalena on the Pest side. She took us to the major sites (Parliament, the Jewish quarter, etc.), but also some off the beaten path places as well. We had lunch in the market hall, coffee in a cute coffee house, and rode the trams and bus. It was great hearing her perspective on the city's history and current life, and we felt like we got a more local flavor of the city. Definitely recommend!

We did the Exclusive Budapest Private Tour by Minivan. Magdalena was great. We had seen some of the city the day before our tour with her so she modified her itinerary. Everything - pre-tour communications, sights seen (with some hidden gems), minivan and driver, local restaurant she took us to for lunch - all were excellent. We could not have had a better day and highly recommend Magdalena as a guide.

We had a wonderful experience getting to know Budapest guided by our excellent guide Magdaléna. She was more than a guide, but a friend, that got us into a deep incursion in the city, and had us walking all around, not only in the more turistic sights, but even in nooks and crannies not very frequented by tourists, but more by locals. We walked, went on buses, metro and tram. We highly recommend this tour, Toursbylocals, and dearest Magdaléna!

This was the best experience. We requested a bike tour of the city. Magdalena was super accommodating and planned it perfectly. She even hired some real nice bikes. We had the opportunity to visit all the important sites in 5 hours. Besides the tour, she is super nice, knowledgeable and speaks perfect Spanish. Can't think of a better way to visit this beautiful city and I can't imagine a better guide.

Magdaléna planned the perfect itinerary for our trip and made our time in Budapest magical. She made some adjustments upon learning that several in our group are artists. I peppered her with questions relating to history, politics, economics, linguistics and culture throughout the day and she always knew the answer as well as lots of additional information for context. I hope we have the chance to visit Budapest again and tour with her once more.

Magdalena was excellent. We knew nothing about the history of Budapest yet in a day we came away loving the city and it's past. Knowledgeable, funny and a pleasure to spend the day with. Highly recommend.

Our family of 5 totally enjoyed our private tour with Magdalena. She is a great host,very knowledgable, and a pleasure to talk to. We covered all the major sights in Buda and Pest and moved at a pace that suited our group. It was great way to make use of our limited time there. I highly recommend Magdalena for your tour of Budapest.

It was a wonderful experience for our family to have Magdalena as our tour guide. She was a true professional and her personality is very likable. We immediately felt at ease and she built up our interest in each and every places we toured. We will definitely recommend her to family and friends as we talk about the lovely and enchanting city of Budapest. Magdalena introduced us to Budapest in the best way and we will leave Budapest with eagerness to continue learning about it. Thanks Magdalena!!

Magdalena is very knowledgeable and very pleasant lady. Even though we had terrible weather (Raining heavily for hours) she picked and showed very good sites and gave us a very interesting tour. I would recommend her happily to anyone.
