How does one connect with a reputable private tour guide in Budapest, outside of TripAdvisor and/or Viator? Thanks!
We used Timea Tarjani when we were there in May. She was very good! Google her to get her info.
Ive known this guy over 15 years. Used him a few times, reccomended him often, always gets good reviews: http://www.guideinbudapest.com/
Another vote for Timea Tarjani! We have hired her for a 4 hour walking tour next month. She was highly recommended by relatives and friends. She specializes in Jewish history and provides classic walking tours as well. She will tailor a tour to your interests. She does small group or private tours. www.budapestjewishwalk.hu
We also recommend Timea. We did a walking tour in Budapest as well as a daytrip around the Danube Bend with her. She is so sweet and knowledgeable. If you'd like more info on what we did, I did a blog post on our excursions with her. Here is the one for our walking tour of Budapest https://sunsetsandrollercoasters.com/private-guide-walking-tour-budapest/ and here is the one for our daytrip outside the city. https://sunsetsandrollercoasters.com/wonderful-day-trip-to-the-danube-bend-hungary/
Just a follow up with our experience with Timea Tarjani in Budapest. We had our walking tour with Timea 2 weeks ago. She was everything we had heard about and more! We spent 4 incredible hours filled with important history from this knowledgeable, passionate guide. We highly recommend her. Special thanks to Joanne who shared her experience with Timea.
