Private Driver AND tour guide in Budapest

Recommended Posts

We are interested in a driver who is also a tour guide in Budapest.  I should have clarified this in my previous post.

Can anyone recommend one?

We used Emily at Tours by Locals. She was one of our best ever.

Would you by any chance have any contact information for them.

We really would appreciate it.

I also endorse tourguideemily. Had her for a day in Budapest last May and felt like I got an "authentic" local tour.

She is good to reply via email about bookings and to answer your advance questions.

we used Gabriella about 5 years ago for 2 days...she was wonderful..we were a group of 8 spent one day touring the city (she knew what we would see with Viking) and another visiting Eger and some wineries....these days were one of our BEST tours ever!

After a Viking cruise this past December, we spent two extra days in Budapest.

On one of the days, we used Andrea Makkay for an 8 hour tour of Budapest. With her, we had a private van and driver and she was absolutely fantastic.
We had contacted her a few months before our trip, and she was very easy to work with online in making our arrangements. Her responses were always prompt. She was extremely helpful in making our plans and yet was always amenable to our wishes.

Her knowledge of the country and the city is unparalleled. We learned so much and in those  8 hours saw everything that we wanted to see.

We were two couples and by splitting the fee, our cost was extremely reasonable considering we had private transportation and our own guide.

I highly recommend her.

email her at andrea.makkay@gmail.com
