Adam was simply amazing! He was so knowledgeable about his city now and its history. He taught us the ins and outs of the city transit and showed us ALOT during our tour. He kept a close eye on traffic and we never waited for more than a couple mins for bus/tram etc. His sense of humor is fantastic! He was so quick witted, it was hard to believe that English was a second language. Take a tour with Adam, you will NOT be disappointed. I highly recommend! Thanks for a great day!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lisa, thank you for taking the time to rate my tour! It was a pleasure to meet you all! Looking forward meeting you soon in Budapest! Regards, Adam M arot

Adam knows a lot of Hungarian history and his personal stories about his family made the tour even better! We learned a lot about Hungarian history and saw a lot of things that most people probably over look. Adam is very friendly and even treated us to some pastries and chocolate!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sarah, thank you for choosing me as your local guide in Budapest! I would also like to thank you for taking the time to rate my tour. I really enjoyed our day. Hope to see you soon in my hometown! Regards, Adam M.

In 4 hours Adam provided history overview- present day culture vibe- and thoughts on where Budapest is heading. He is smart, engaging, funny and speaks excellent English...plus provides hidden gems along the way. In 4 hours I learned more about Budapest than 4 days.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Maureen, thank you for booking an afternoon tour with me! It was a pleasure to introduce my hometown to the four of you and to show you Budapest illuminated with floodlights! Looking forward seeing you - or your clients - in Budapest! Kind regards, Adam M arot

We were a group of 6 that did Adam's Grand Budapest Tour by mini-van. Adam was simply the best in every way. Great personality. Very Knowledgeable and helpful. We had lousy weather but Adam made the best of it for us and it turned out to be a very memorable and fun day. If he is available, book him. You will not be disappointed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jack, thank you for picking me as your local guide in Budapest! It was a pleasure to meet all six of you! Indeed the weather failed on us big time, regardless of that it was a superb day! Kind regards, Adam

We booked a 4 hour walking tour of Budapest. Adam showed up promptly at our hotel and had a detail plan of where we would be exploring based on our interests. Adam was easy going, very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. Overall he made us feel comfortable and we learned a lot, including how to navigate the city on our own after the tour! We had a very enjoyable experience with Adam and would recommend Tours By Locals (ask for Adam)!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard, thank you for taking the time to post a review of my tour! I am glad to read that you've enjoyed spending half a day with me and I managed to make you feel comfortable in Budapest! Hopefully it went so well that you'll return some day in the future! See you soon! Regards, Adam M arot

Adam - very accommodating, as we ended up having a good tour of the Buda side of Budapest the day our ship arrived. He was informed of that the day before, so looked at an extended coverage of the Pest side in the 4 hours we had with him. He took us on the subway, tram & bus and suggested that we get a 24 hour group pass so that we could use it the next day, which we did. Great information on all the sights we saw, and we covered a great deal of ground - literally & figuratively. Very personable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Garry, thank you for picking me as your guide of your post cruise day and thanks for bringing so much joy to our afternoon! Keep a little piece of your heart for Budapest! Regards, Adam M arot

Adam did an outstanding job of showing us Budapest by Night - and it was a highlight of our trip. Adam was very helpful & flexible in ensuring that we were in the right place at the right time to see the city's sites at their evening best. Adam suggested a restaurant, picked us up there in a Mercedes van, showed us ALL of the great night lights, and returned us to our hotel. Adam also set up and took outstanding photos of our group...You MUST see Budapest at night..and Adam is the best guide to show you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Greg, thank you for booking two tours with me on the same day! It was superb to be able to show you the city illuminated with floodlights! All the best, Adam M arot

Adam, our "proud Hungarian," provided us an exceptional intro to Budapest. Adam showed us the key sites, moving us quickly around the city on public transport (after we decided to change from a bike tour). More than simply showing us the sites of the city, Adam provided an understanding of how the city and it's people survived and changed as they suffered through the years of Nazi and Soviet control. Adam's very personal tour made the city come alive, and made our tour all the more enjoyable & meaningful.

Adam was a fantastic tour guide. He took us on a tour of his native Budapest, and was extremely knowledgeable about the city and its history. He and our driver were both friendly and personable, and a joy to spend time with. He adjusted his pace to accommodate my mother, who has a walking disability, and introduced us to chimney cakes as a snack along our tour, as well as gave us good suggestions for supper that night. I would highly recommend Adam to anyone seeking a Budapest tour guide.

This half day bicycle tour led by Adam was one of the highlights of our recent family heritage trip to Budapest. Adam was informative and engaging for our whole family, including our young adult kids (in their 20's!) We all learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed our ride through parts of Pest, Buda, Margaret Island and Old Buda. And, to top it off, he brought us to a wonderful gelato shop!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Linda, thank you for choosing me as your guide in Budapest! I am glad I could show you some off the beaten track parts of my hometown, like Obuda and Margaret island! Looking forward having you back to Budapest! Regards, Adam M.

My husband and I were only going to be in Budapest for about 24 hours, so we booked a 4 hr. walking tour with Adam to start right after our arrival. We were immediately captivated by his warmth and sense of humor.He loves his country and the city, and that love shines through. He took us to all the beautiful sites and discussed the history and culture of Hungary (which we loved!) and made sure we could get to the airport efficiently and cheaply the next day.I felt I'd made a friend! Book Adam! And enjoy!

Excellent ! Adam is such a warm personality and highly motivated guide (recommendable!). I truly enjoyed walking all six (including Infant) of us through the area, knowing the history and discussing in details on each point. He was flexible enough to take us back to our hotel for small pit stop as well. The atmosphere he created was so special that it really felt like home to all of us. All respect for Adam who did a great job here ; A great example of excellent tour guide and an amazing personality !
