I used First Class Limo Service for a trip into Slovakia earlier this year. They did such a good job that we are hiring them to go back to Slovakia in June. Dont let the "Limo" scare you off, they have cars and vans. They are pretty good about responding to email. http://www.fclimo.hu/index_eng.php FIRST CLASS LIMOUSINE SERVICE BT. H-1133. Budapest Kárpát utca 42. Tel./Fax: +36-1-350-5595 Day&Night mobile: +36-309-421-844 E-mail: fclimo@chello.hu
Web: www.fclimo.hu For a lot more you can hire ANDREW ILLES. He is a tour guide but i know he does this sort of thing too. http://www.guideinbudapest.com/

Betsy....... A google search will find you several private guides/drivers who can help. We used one but I can't recall the company. They can provide the car. They will be/should be licensed as a guide. RS seems to use this one; www.privateguidebudapest.com/

A guide is a different service and isn't necessary for basic transportation but if you want to do some sight seeing along the way it might be a great idea. I am in favor of using every second wisely when having already spent thousands to get that far. But the cost for a trained and licensed guide is going to be substantially more than just a car and driver. I have used and known a gentleman named Andrew ILLES for almost ten years now. You can find him at http://www.guideinbudapest.com/contactme.php
