All through the trip we will keep you company in the car where we can chat really about anything in a relaxed, casual atmosphere. It is important to understand that we are not trained tour guides by no means, but since both of us were born and raised in Budapest we know plenty about this city.
The longer the trip is the more stops we can include. In case of a 3 hour tour the recommended stops are Heroes’ Square and the Citadella on top of Gellért Hill, so you can visit Pest and Buda as well.
It is also possible for us to take you for a night drive. People are fascinated about night time Budapest and its lights, and we definitely understand why. See it for yourself! It is a pleasant program for the evening with photo possibilities at several stops. Recommended length is 3 hours.
It was the best introduction and overview we could ask for. He covers everything you need to know – layout of the city, Hungarian foods to try, landmarks not to miss, what to avoid, delicious restaurant recommendations and even a basic language lesson!

Our transfer with Tamás was great. After just arriving in Budapest it was lovely to be informed of the best places to visit, eat and drink during our stay. Even after our flight was delayed Tamás waited for us. I would definitely recommend this experience.
Kind, professional and safe
Great airport transfer! Tamas and his staff have been very professional, on time and safe. They were easily contactable and avilable. During the trasfer they delighted with information about the city.
What a lovely journey from Budapest airport to our destination, Tamas was very informative showing us the sights and history of them. Tamas also gave us a lot of good advice for our stay in Budapest. We would recommend Tamas and his company to all visitors.
Airport transfer to central Budapest
Although we were both tired, his short presentation of significant and important sites, buildings and tours available to us, was very engaging and informative.
We actually booked an evening cruise on the Danube via Tamas which was excellent. We also booked our transfer back to the airport. We wish him every success with this new venture and would certainly recommend him.
Great service. Would use again
Our bags were thirty minutes late but Tamas was polite and pleasant and helped us with the bags to the car. From there, he gave us great information on Budapest and the do’s and don’ts of the city with a nice slide show presentation. He answered all of our questions and even tried to teach us some Hungarian but also suggested which foods we should try (which we did).

Excellent transport service
Tamas was the consummate professional. I have not had better airport transfer service. His tips for site seeing around the city were spot on. His restaurant advice put us on some of the best meals we had during our stay. Most importantly we did not have to deal with taxi drivers, who in our previous experience can be difficult. Would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a great service at a fair price.

Best introduction to a city possible
From the moment of booking this transfer to when we said our final goodbyes the service has been fantastic!!! In constant contact in the weeks and days leading up to your journey and when they finally pick you up from the airport it is a most friendly and enjoyable welcome.
Tamas has an excellent knowledge of Budapest and provided us with a great insight in what to do during our stay and where to eat etc. He also went out of his way too book restaurants and bars for us throughout our stay. Fantastic service and great price. Can’t recommend enough!
We, however, arrived on a cruise ship and Tamas was able to accommodate that as well. He arrived promptly, driving a very clean and comfortable car. Enroute to our Airbnb apartment, he answered our questions and recommended a restaurant, which was outstanding(!), shopping districts and other attractions. He then highlighted on the map places we had discussed. This was so helpful as we struck out on our own in Budapest.
Tamas is very personable and was able to converse with us in English very well. He offers a unique presentation on his iPad as you travel into the city to help guests become acclimated to Budapest. I plan to recommend Tamas to my friends who will be traveling to the beautiful city of Budapest. His love of his city is quite apparent!
It is always nice when somenone is waiting for you at the airport to pick you up.
But Tamas is more than just somenone – his service is absolutely excellent.
He shows his passion about his city and although we arrived at night and were tired, he made us so curious and excited about the coming days. He had very good tips for us and answered all of our questions.
We definitely will come back and we definitely will book his service again!
Thanks again Tamas!
’More than a Transfer’ is a great and trustworthy service
For those who, just like me, had just landed in Budapest and are looking forward having a wonderful time. Tamás is very kind, polite and has a very good level of English. It’s like having a friend picking you up at the airport when you get to their city. He is very passionate about Hungary and will give you hints about the culture, history, what to see and what to eat during your stay. As soon as you get home, you receive an e-mail from him with the opening hours of everything he had just mentioned! It is indeed more than a transfer as Tamás will answer any question you might have during your stay.
’More than a transfer’ is a must for any person visiting Budapest
It saved me a day or two that i would have otherwise wasted in trying to find my way around.
Though my flight was delayed, he came to pick me up on time when i eventually landed.
While in the car to my apartment, i assisted to a comprehensive presentation on everything i needed to know during my stay. Thanks to this service, the following day was so stress-free that you would think i was in my home city.
His English is excellent; but most importantly, he is kind and genuine.
Perfect way to start your trip to Budapest
We were picked up by Tamás a few minutes after our arrival. He offered us two bottles of water and off we were to Budapest. As soon as we were on our way, we got to see all the highlights of Budapest on a tablet while Tamás told us lots of tips and tricks. Before we knew it, we were at our destination with tons of information to start our weekend.
And all this for a very reasonable price.
I can highly recommend everyone that looks for a fun way to get from the AirPort to the city to contact Tamás!
That was one of my greatest experiences in Europe thanks to Tamas
Starting from the airport till the end of my journey. I’ve never found such service in Europe, from a person who is capable of arranging everything in the city, helping you with very important helpful information and makes you feel at home.
Very energetic, educated, helpful and detailed person.
Totally recommend to anyone who is looking for excellent service, affordable price and memorable stay in Budapest.

After graduating from college I worked in the best hotels of Budapest for more than 10 years, for the last 5 years as a leading concierge. I have encountered the widest variety of people and situations. My guests came from all over the world, ranging from families, couples, singers to well-known musicians and Hollywood stars.
The growing number of visitors, the love for guests, my knowledge of the city and my good organizing ability have led me to create a business of my own. 'More Than a Transfer' has since become the best airport transfer service in the city.
As a concierge, my most important goal is to help my guests to enjoy their vacations hassle-free. You do not have to search for and make reservations or bookings. As one dear guest of mine wrote on Tripadvisor: “Like you have a friend in Budapest”. That is exactly what I want to give everyone.
I firmly believe in the theory that we have to do what we love.
Originally, I am a teacher of English as a second language. I loved teaching, and though I still miss it and some parts of me always will, after 7 years in a secondary school and some other factors pushing me I felt the time has come to make achange. You don’t know what else you’re capable of until you see it for yourself, right? So I quit my job, and jumped into the unknown, thinking I will end up behind a desk somewhere, which was a thought I loathed as I don’t think I’m suitable for such thing, but hey… Then things took a turn.
We’ve known each other with Tamás since we were four. We went to kindergarten, elementary and secondary school together, and we still hang out with our old buddies. I remember one time when we were out together with the guys and he told us about starting up this business, I jokingly made a remark that if he ever needs an ex-teacher, just yell. I still had my old job then.
Well, two months after I quit, he did. Did I accept the offer? You bet! Teaming up with one of my friends and doing things I love is not really a job anyway. I love speaking English and meeting new people. Many friends of mine told me after seeing me communicating in English that it’s really apparent that I enjoy it very much. I agree. I love driving and cars. Doesn’t matter if it’s a van or a regular car, being behind the wheel is something I can’t get bored of. No wonder, my first word was a combination of the words “daddy” and “car”.
I love car detailing. Being in a clean car is a hundred times better than driving a mess. That’s why I always kept my cars clean as a whistle, and I still do, especially now.
The bottom line is that ‘Welcome to Budapest’ is not something we forced on ourselves just to make a living out of it, but something we do with love and passion, and put all our heart and soul into it. I truly think you’ll feel the same way after we met.
Thanks for your trust and confidence, and see you at the airport!
Our goal is to reach the highest level of comfort. To keep the car cooled/heated we need to stay in the car with the engines running, thus we would like to ask you to contact us as soon as you get out of the terminal. In the answer we will let you know the type/colour/plate number of the car and will get there within a few minutes.
