Private tours in Budapest/Hungary I am a native Hungarian, born in Budapest and have worked as a licensed, private guide since 1995. I have a University educational background in economics, but my real passion is guiding. I love my work and I am very enthusiastic to show people all the beauty in Budapest and Hungary, which was forgotten for almost 50 years! I was growing up during the communist regime, but by the time I grew up, it collapsed almost overnight. This gives me a special view on our recent history, but I am also a member of that generation that already had the chance to travel and see other parts of Europe and the world as well. I am very proud to be recommended as a private guide in Budapest and Hungary in Rick Steves' Travel Books! Let me be your private guide while in Budapest and discover much more with me than you would ever be able to do on your own!

We were part of a small group visiting Budapest, and saw the sights with Andrea. She was excellent and we saw the sights we were targeting and learned the history of each.
