Emily was our private guide during our 1.5 day trip to Budapest. She picked us up on time from the train station (though we had to inform her last minute we were delayed by 2 hrs, as we missed the train from Vienna).
She is a very sincere, friendly and nice person. Thoughout our time with her, she took special effort to watch out for my mum (in her 70s), and was always flexible in making impromtu changes along the way.
Emily made reservations for our dinner boat cruise, and helped called the boat company to let us board direct at the pier when we were running late.
She checked out whether places and restaurants we wished to visit were open (as it was the Easter weekend), and gave us good advice on how best to plan our iternary.
Emily places a big emphasis on ensuring her guests are well taken care of, not hesitating to go the extra mile many a times.
For example, she instructed the Borsso Restaurant waiter to help us book a cab, after we had dinner there one evening.
And she accompanied us to the train ticket office to buy our return tickets -who was a great help as the ticket officer wasnt proficient in English. In fact, she ensured we got onto the right train at the right platform, before she left.
As a guide, Emily is very knowledgeable about the history and meaning of the sights we went to. One of the main reasons we chose Emily is because she is the official guide to the Parliament House.
The Parliament House is magnificant externally and especially internally - more beautiful than many of the palaces we visited during our 17 days Europe trip and strongly recommended for any visitor to Budapest.
In 1.5 days, we covered the Parliament House, Heroes Square, St Stephen's Cathedral, Great Synagogue, Fisherman Bastion n Castle Hill, Gellert and the other famous thermal baths, Szentendre, and other interesting sights.
We are very glad to have Emily as our private guide for Budapest- she is like an old friend showing us around the city, not a commercial guide.
We would strongly recomnend Emily as the private guide to go with, for any visitor to Hungary. She is really the Best - Go with her!
