She was very informative and provided additional information that helped us with the remainder of our visit. We hit the high points... More

Budapest Guide tours provided us with a lovely and very knowledgeable guide Aniko. We spent two mornings with her as she and her driver shuttled us around Budapest to all the major sights. Aniko also suggested additional places of interest and restaurants and cafe for us to try after our morning tours ended. We simply could not have absorbed the... More

We recently hired Barbara, her driver and van, for a full day tour of Budapest for two couples. We all had an absolutely wonderful time. Barbara adjusted the tour to fit our specific preferences. Having a dedicated local guide with in depth knowledge of the country, the people, and their long history and how everything tied together was great. Barbara... More

Susan was our private guide for 2 days and the only thing I can say is book her if you can. Her knowledge of Budapest is unbelievable and she knows how to convey it without sounding like a recording. You can tell she loves her city and you will too. I highly recommend her as a guide.

Based on the Rick Steve's Budapest book we contacted Andrea Makkay. She was busy for the day we were interested but she arranged a tour with her known associate... Katalin KÜRTI.. The tour was excellent and quickly tailored to sights we didn't see through Viking. Andrea also gave us travel suggestions and recommendations for Budapest (taxi's, metro, etc.). Katalin had...

We were put onto a very large bus and then waited. And waited. We left 20 minutes late because there were so many people on the bus who arrived late. At each stop, we waited. And waited. We got further and further behind schedule so at one stop we were told that we only had two minutes to get off.... More

My US travel agent contracted to DiscoverBudapest for our multi-day tour of Budapest with trips to Lake Balaton, Eger and the Tokaj region. The trip was for 10 adult relatives researching our Hungarian roots. We were so fortunate to have been assigned Jozsef Zombori as our private tour guide. Jozsef absolutely made the trip amazing! He is very personable and... More

My wife and I spent two wonderful days in Budapest with Barbara Szabo and her driver Frank. We have traveled the world with many guides but Barbara was far far and away the best in all catagories, from history, efficiency, perfect english, and recommending the absolute best restaurants. She tailored the two days to our interests and we had a... More

We enjoyed our driving tour, even though we got stuck in traffic and thus lost some of the time we should have been seeing sites, but that's city life. Magdi was very knowledgeable and very pleasant, and we learned a great deal of the history of Hungary during the tour. She was very helpful and responsive to our requests.

We picked Barbara Szabo as our tour guide after reading wonderful reviews, and we were not disappointed. We found Barbara (and her driver Ferenc) to be warm, kind, interesting, and extremely knowledgeable about Budapest and its history, its architecture, and its many interesting stories! Barbara is a very energetic guide and has great knowledge about the culture of Budapest. She... More
