We spent two full days with Emily last September and I would highly recommend her. She is highly intelligent and speaks several languages. She is very professional and was punctual and was able to get tickets at short notice for touring Parliament. We wanted to see the Hungarian horses and she was able to arrange a private tour of their stables and to the exhibition building there. Finally, we watched an incredible performance of the Hungarian horsemen's skills in action. We also were able to visit a small city with traditional artisans actively practicing trades from the past as well as see how they lived one hundred years ago. While she drove us she continued to answer all questions and she provided us with information about the culture and history of both Budapest and Hungary. You will be happy you choose Emily to do your tour.

Based on recommendations from friends in our town, we booked three tours with Emily and each was outstanding. We walked through the Jewish Quarter, stopping at all three synagogues, learning about the history and stopping for coffee and Flodni (a delicious cake). We learned how the area is constantly changing. At night, we enjoyed a Gypsy traditional dinner with dancing and music, along with great food and wine. The following day we were treated to a drive in the country to a nearby town for an artisan chocolate tasting and a visit to a local winery. It was a memorable day. On our way back to our boat, we stopped for memorable night photos with many local buildings. Emily also helped us move our luggage from our hotel to the river cruise ship. We highly recommend Emily for any of her tours. She is knowledgeable and passionate about her city and country and the history associated with them.

We worked with Emily for over a year to tailor make our group tour of Budapest and the local country side. From the moment Emily met us on the AMALea river cruise to the last moment we were with her she was so full of information about her country. She took our group places that river cruise tours did not. We spent one day in Budapest and the rest of the time we toured country side tasting wine, tasting wine and chocolates, Shopping in an artist village. We had dinner at a Gypsy dinner theater. After we returned home my brother and sister in law were visiting Vienna and texted me asking which city I would recommend Prague or Budapest for a day tour and I said Budapest and I emailed Emily asking here if she was available to meet them at the train station and give them a tour. She did and my brothers comment was 'She was outstanding'. Thank you Emily for guiding us.

Emily is one of the best tour guides we have used. She is friendly, out-going and passionate about her city and country. From the moment she picked us up at the airport till we returned to the airport, she never stopped pointing out items and telling us about the history and culture of the country. We did a full day tour of Budapest and another full day trip to Vienna. She also offered a traditional Hungarian meal at her home. All three were worth doing. Emily was patient and allowed us to take our time on the sightseeing. She ensured we had opportunities to shop at the various Christmas markets as well. The sights we saw we magnificent and I highly recommend Emily as a guide if you go to Budapest. I felt her prices were reasonable and fair. Emily speaks several languages and was fluent in all. Overall, you cannot find a better guide for Budapest and Vienna than Emily.

Emily is an extraordinary guide. I went on a walking tour of the Jewish Quarter and the Parliament Building. Emily is knowledgeable, passionate, kind, and genuine. She went out of her way to make my introduction to Budapest extra special. I've already recommended her to those I met on my travels to Vienna and Prague who were on their way to Budapest. I'd hire her again in a heart-beat! Thank you Emily!!
