We have only a day and a half in Budapest and we wanted to get the most out of this time, so we looked for a tour and found Andrea Makkey at Private Guide in Budapest tours. When we travel to Europe we always start our preparation with checking Rick Steves' videos and books and he recommended Andrea on her... More

Contacted Andrea Makkay regarding 2 half day driving tours of Budapest. She set us up with Eszter, and a driver to take the five of us around Budapest over two half days. - This was extremely productive in that we were able to see more sights and gain more knowledge of the History of Hungary and Budapest, than we ever...

My husband and I contacted Andrea for a tour and we were met by her knowledgeable colleague Zsuzsanna. She was extremely thorough as she guided us to the important historical and architectural locations across the city. It was as if we had a true scholar with us and we were very grateful for her attention to detail and depth of... More

Found Andrea's name in Rick Steves book. Emailed her and she was really very helpful. Since she's busy, she suggested another guide Kati. We got Kati for two half days and we had fun. It was educational and entertaining. It was a walking tour plus public transportation. We were not in a rush and that's the advantage of having a... More

We contacted Andrea Maacky for a half-day city tour when we arrived in Budapest. Aniko met us in the lobby of our hotel and took us on a wonderful tour round the city to help us better understand its history, culture, and landmark buildings. In four hours we saw and learned a lot! Thomas was our driver and he patiently... More

Helped my wife mail a postcard to our daughter and allowed us to linger at places we loved( many!)...Agnes helped us fall in love... More

This was my third hiring of Anrea Makkay' s company. On previous trips i used her guides for walking tours of the City, and a day long trip on the Danube Bend. This trip, in Nov 2013, I was accompanying 5 other friends, and I wanted them to experience the best of the best. With limited time for my friends,... More

Rick Steve's recommended Peter Polczman on his video and tour books of Budapest. I would highly recommend him. He speaks English fluently, has a good knowledge of history and Budapest. He met us at our hotel that was a little further from the center and we toured through the rain on the Pest side. It was a 4 hour walking... More

We contacted Andrea Makkay of privateguidebudapest.com a couple of days before our arrival in Budapest, and she responded quickly with lots of information and options from which to choose. We decided a half-day walking tour would fit our timeframe and interest, and asked to focus on Pest, which is where we stayed. Our guide Magdee met us right on time... More

We booked two 4-hour half-day tours with Andrea Maakay's brother Janos. There were 6 of us in a private SUV with Janos and a driver. Janos was a wonderful guide and we would never have seen or understood as much as we did without him. Budapest is larger than expected and spread out. Having a guide helped us maximize our... More
