Rita is wonderful. She made our trip almost magical.Her grasp of languages, history, culture, business, architecture and how she stitched them all together was truly amazing. She planned everything perfectly, from tram tickets to 3D showing, and handled children so well.Even if one does NOT want to see Hungary,just invite Rita and she will change one's mind with a most memorable experience of a lifetime. Extraordinary tour,beautiful historical city, great food,exceptional guide.The best place in the world

Rita was spectacular!! Very nice, personable, very knowledgeable of the history and geography. We felt like we were locals when we were with her. Showed us stuff that was off the beaten path that was very enriching. Rita was on time with all the travel tickets we would need so no wasting time in any lines. What more can we say ? If we ever come back to Budapest we will absolutely be contacting her to be our guide. And if we lived in Budapest , I am sure that she would be one of our close friends.

Rita took care of everything, even buying tickets ahead of time. She was knowledgeable, interesting to talk to, and very flexible in accommodating out interests. I would take any tour she offered because she is the best I ever had.
Bradley JayUnited States
coordination was easy with Rita. She was professional and prepared. Besides showing us the standard tourist attractions, we saw sites that matched our interests and not available to everyone. She was very knowledgeable and easy to engage with for 4 hours. We will definitely recommend her to friends Brad Jay

Took a short train ride out to the scenic Hungarian countryside with Rita, and it was a great time. Got to see some awesome ruins, some beautiful country and had a close encounter with an amazing hawk. Rita is wonderful and I would recommend her to anyone. I learned a lot from her about Hungary in general. The Visegrád/Danube bend area has become a leading contender in my quest to find a place to retire abroad in the future. Thanks Rita!!

Rita was extremely knowledgeable of the city, it's history, it's culture, it's food, and it's architecture. I think she must be a "closet" archaeologist. She was excited to guide us through the city's history. Not only did we see the city as it is, she included a personal library of photographs from the past, giving us a deeper appreciation for the changes that have occurred throughout history. I highly recommend her and tours by locals. The process and the person were both amazing.

Great tour with Rita. Loved our tour. Thanks very much.
Karen BoehningUnited States
This was our second tour with Rita. We loved seeing the countryside, the Basilica, and the Marzipan museum. We had a fun, informative day and highly recommend Rita as a tour guide.
Karen BoehningUnited States
Rita was a wonderful guide. She provided an insightful overview of Budapest—at a nice pace. She showed us how to use public transportation. We saw things that we wouldn't have gotten by ourselves and she gave us lots of tips for better using the days we were there on our own. We had a lot of fun. She was informative and prepared. We appreciated hearing about the history of the country. Our group of six adults would highly recommend her.
Definitely a must see when visiting Budapest, an amazing area rich with history from the country's beginning. Rita was terrific, on time, easy to talk to & knows the country's history. We had a wonderful lunch in a medieval restaurant, great fun. Worth the trip out of the city.
Linda PutnamWindsor, CO, United States
My group and I have done many private tours over the years and this was one of the very best. Rita is fantastic and has a love and passion for this tour. There were so many things packed into our day. The restaurant she took us to was wonderful and such a fun experience for us. If you are going to be in the Budapest area, don't miss the opportunity to plan a day with Rita. You will not be disappointed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for choosing me to guide you in the Danube Bend. It was my pleasure to show you a bit of the beautiful Hungarian countryside. I wish you all the best.
Jeff RobinsonUnited States
We enjoyed our tour with Rita very much. She has extensive knowledge of Budapest and Hungary and we learned a lot by listening to her narrative and asking many questions. She was very punctual (actually early) as to our start time and helped us negotiate the public transit system in Budapest making it quite easy to cover a lot of ground in our 4 hours. We prefer to use local guides when possible as it allows us to tailor the tour to our needs and cover the places we want to see. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for joining me on this tour. It was my pleasure to guide you in Budapest. Wish you all the best.

Rita was excellent!! We had a private group of 3 for a 6 hour Budapest tour. We came in knowing nothing, and left with a plethora of knowledge about the city and it's past! I highly recommend Rita!! Thanks Rita!!

We gave used many guides in the past - many of whom were very good. But Rita T! She sets a new standard. Our experiences with her far exceeded our very high expectations. She not only knows what she is talking about but presents information in an interesting and even entertaining fashion. But — best of all she is a great person with a wonderful sense of humor and real desire to tailor her tours to your interests. You will not be sorry having her as your tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for Jeffry, it was my pleasure to guide you in Budapest. Wish you and your family all the best.

Rita was a wonderful guide and very knowledgeable. We toured a lovely town with a medieval castle and history, Visegrad, which is on the Danube Bend, and then back to Budapest to visit the Buda castle area. We thoroughly enjoyed learning the history of Hungary and post WWII.
Julia RiceUnited States
This was a wonderful tour. Just the right amount of information and tailored to our interests. Rita is charming and incredibly knowledgeable. If you are coming to Budapest I would strongly recommend a tour with Rita!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Julia, Thank you for joining me on my tour. It was my pleasure to guide you and show you my city. Best regards, Rita
Stacey ScanlanUnited States
5 out of 5!!! Rita was an amazing guide for our 16 people who had just landed and were tired and hungry and only had an afternoon to see and learn about the city. She was knowledgeable and patient and made our day perfect. Thank you!!!!
Solomon KernoshUnited States
Rita's extensive knowledge of the city's history as well as current developments meant we received an excellent overview of Budapest. The mix of walking the streets and catching public transport (including the fantastic old tube line) gave us a feel of being a local while continually learning about the interesting evolution of one of great cities of the world. Without a true local like Rita we would not have had the truly excellent experience that we did.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Neil. I hope to see you again in Hungary and show you more of my country. Take care
John JamarikKemah, TEXAS, United States
Rita was fantastic. Very thorough and paced the tour in accordance with our needs.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, Thank you for joining me on my tour. I wish you all the best.
Richard SchulerUnited States
Rita was warm, engaging, considerate and incredibly knowledgeable. She made the tour feel fun and educational, doubt you can find a better guide! This tour was excellent in that it took us out of the city and into the countryside to see more of Hungary than just Budapest. It involved taking a train, ferry and micro bus which all were enjoyable and added to the "local" experience. Rita's detailed knowledge of the Castle and its place in Hungarian history make the tour, a must see.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard, Thank you ever so much for your kind words and for choosing me to be your guide. Have a safe journey home and I hope I'll see you all again in Hungary. Take care and let me know when your first Hungarian meal is ready. I might just pop over to check it :) Wishing you all the best.
