The personal connection is the most important! The greatest reward of my work is the recommendation of the past, satisfied clients.


You are more than welcome to read the opinion of clients I have guided in Budapest or Hungary in the past!


I had the pleasure to welcome guests from several countries of the world - among others - from United States, Australia, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Israel etc.

Hi Andrea,

Thanks so much for taking us on the wonderful tour of Budapest last week! We can't imagine how we would have made it without you. You have a rare gift for conveying the story of a place and its peoples in a fun and friendly way - I'm sure you will achieve any success you reach for!

Once again, many thanks for making our visit to Budapest a wonderful experience.
Let us know if you ever want to visit the United States!

Dear Andrea,

You are THE BEST!  Our choir and chaperones all felt you gave us the best tour of Budapest and surrounds we could have ever received.  Your concern to satisfy the diverse interests of our group was impressive and the variety of places you took us was a perfect mix for us.  To end our tour with a gourmet dinner on our own private boat sailing down the Danube was pure genius!  We loved every thing about Budapest!  (And the kids loved your melodious voice coming over the bus' microphone!) Until we return: áldás, békesség!

All best wishes to you,

Beth P. McCoy and the Highlands Youth Ensemble of the Mountain Empire Children's Choral Academy -


Thanks again for being such a professional, informative and personal guide.  We learned so much from you about your beautiful city, your culture and your old and modern history, and we are certain that our Budapest experience would have been much less if we had tried to see Budapest on our own or with a large guided tour group. Also I will be sending a note to Rick Steves about our travel experiences and you can be certain that we will be giving him glowing remarks about your service.

Thanks again from the Bells and Karlins, Vern -


Dear Andrea,

We thank you so very much for meeting us and taking us all around your wonderful home.  It was the highlight of our trip.  I got my picture prints yesterday and we remembered each place vividly again. You made our trip a very special one and we thank you and wish all the best for you and your husband.  If you ever find yourself in our part of the world, here are our address and phone number and we would like to show you our city.

Dear Andrea,

We wanted to thank you again for your wonderful tours. They added greatly to our understanding and appreciation of Budapest. Please feel free to use us as a reference. Be well and thanks again.

I wanted to take this opportunity again to thank you for your splendid tours, full of historical information and personal insight.  Never have any of us, I believe, been quite as impressed with someone as you.  Budapest, for me, proved to be the most wonderful city that we visited, and I hope to be in touch with you, granted my future visit to your city.

My husband, daughter, and I have wonderful memories of you and your beautiful city.

Thanks for making our visit to Budapest so informative and interesting.

You are thought of frequently and mentioned each time that we rave about our time in Budapest.
Budapest is now one of our favorite cities, which in large part is because of you! You immediately made us feel at home in your wonderful city and provided experiences that created pleasant memories of our visit to Hungary.

Andrea, Thank you again for your wonderful tour of Budapest last Tuesday. We also had a great time the rest of the week, thanks to many of your suggestions. We enjoyed the thermal baths, the "artichoke" restaurant, and many of the museums you suggested. When it came time to come home, we didn't want to leave--we could've spent another week in your beautiful and interesting city.

Dear Andrea.

We are back here in the states and are still glowing from our wonderful experience.  Thank you again for taking such good care of us during our stay, especially with regard to changing hotels.  Our trip would have been much different without your kind assistance and enthusiasm.  Please let us know if you ever travel to Los Angeles or Las Vegas.  Warm Regards,

Jeff and Nancy -

Dear Andrea,
We want you to know you are the best guide we have ever had.  You know so much about Hungary and speak perfect English!  The kids loved being with you as well.
Thank you so much!

I just want to thank you for responding to my request a couple of weeks ago. It was my son and my last day in Budapest and if it hadn't rained - we would've enjoyed the kayaking trip. I am sorry the weather did not cooperate. Please know that I had asked my concierge, several outfitting stores, etc. if they knew of anyone. I had then gone to the internet cafe to try that. I got a couple of what I would call "rude" responses - telling me to contact my concierge(which I had) and that they did not respond to inquiries on short notice. Anyways - I just wanted to tell you thanks again for trying to set something up for us.

Hello, Andrea

Thank you for your guidance during our visit to your lovely city. We appreciated your flexibility in responding to the differing interests of our group, getting us comfortable with the transit system, as well as explanations that were more like conversations with friends than “scripted”. Lasting memories of our visit include the touching moment with the woman at the statue of Imry Nagy and the incredible folk music and dance performance later that night.

Best regards,

Ron Friend -


Dear Andrea,

How are you? We arrived back in Hong Kong today. Once again, I must thank you for your lovely informative introduction to your beautiful city. There are still things and places that we did not get to see on this visit and we look forward to revisiting Budapest in the near future!

Best regards,

Hi Andrea,

Just a quick note to let you know that we made back home.  We got home about 2 weeks ago, but we are still tired from our trip.  The rest of the trip went well. We bumped into Rick Steves in Rome (he was leading one of his tour groups), and spoke with him for a few minutes.  We mentioned what a great time we had with you as our guide in Budapest. Anyway, we want to thank you for all your help.  We truly enjoyed visiting your country, and you made our experience that much better.  We saw more than we expected, and look forward to visiting  Hungary again in the future. If you are ever in Florida , please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thanks again,

Hi Andrea

I thought that I would simply pass on our thanks again for the very interesting tours of Budapest . After you left us we spent the rest of the afternoon in Szentendre.The next day we decided to stay in the city and walked in the Gellert Hill park and to the castle district where we visited the House of Hungarian wine and returned with a few bottles of our favourites. So we have left Lake Balaton for reason to visit Hungary again in the future!

Thanks again and best wishes.

Budapest made a very definite impression on us--- and was certainly one of the highlights of our 2004.  We will certainly be back.....and look forward to the evolving Hungary.
