Traveling with my elderly father, I looked to find a private tour guide who could take us to the top things to see, plus give us a good dose of Hungarian history and culture. Gabby completely exceeded our expectations with her knowledge of her city, people and traditions. She has a roomy comfy new car which whisked us about town over two days. She tailored our visits to places where we could walk around a bit and take plenty of pictures, while receiving her nuggets of folklore and history about each sight. We really appreciated her interest in our own curiosity about Hungary and the beautiful city of Budapest. If you are looking for personal insight and guiding about this city, Gabby is delightful.

Through her charm, passion and command of Hungarian culture, this amazing lady has provided us with an experience that we will remember for the rest of our lives. It is not something that we could have achieved ourselves. With teenage kids in tow, we set off on a quest to find our roots in Hungary and Slovakia, Gabbi was able to question locals, use a patient driver and physically get us into villages and houses which belonged to our family 70 years ago. We spoke to amazing folk along the way enabling us to piece together our past. Back in Budapest Gabbi took us on walking and driving tours to show us the inside story of the city and its history through the eyes and passion of a local. She is flexible to individual needs and makes suggestions beyond the touring she conducts. Do not hesitate to use Gabbi. You won't be sorry.

We visited Budapest in December 2013 with a group of 19 persons for a sports competition. We had 9 children with us. We contacted Gabriella but she was not available. She arranged another tour guide (her friend Katalin) to pick us up from the airport by bus. We had a quick city tour which all the kids and we loved :) Katalin was very friendly, warm and helpful. Her Turkish was excellent, the kids loved the candies and good luck cards she gave them for the competition. She was also very helpful for finding our hotel, she even waited for us to check-in so that we wouldn't face any problems. She also gave us a few tips which were very useful for the rest of our stay. We thank both Katalin and Gabriella for their kindness and hospitality and we highly recommend their tour services.

Gabriella fulfilled all our expectations of a great guide in Budapest. She is very knowledgable and passionate about her country. She has a very nice car and drove us around to all parts of Buda and Pest. We enjoyed spending time with her and would recommend her to anyone going to Budapest.

We spent a day with Gabriella primarily visiting Sentendre and the nearby marvellous open-air Village Museum.

She was charming, efficient, and hugely knowledgeable on a wide range of subjects - the whole experience being enhanced by the infusion of her own and her family's experiences over generations during which the country has seen enormous change.

We felt we spent the day with a friend, not just a guide.

When we think of Hungary we shall always think of Gabriella
