Julia K.

Budapest, HUN, Hungary

Welcome to my beautiful Budapest! My name is Julia and I'll be your guide in this wonderful peace of land I call home.

I adore Hungary. I was born and raised in Budapest, a city that has always been my home and my love. I'm a passionate and enthusiastic private tour guide with fluent English and French.

I started tour guiding in high school and I always knew I couldn't live without it. It's not just my job but also my passion. I'm convinced that the best way to explore a city's history and culture is through the eyes of a local. I also promise to reveal all the secrets and legends that only locals know about. Let me help you discover the most beautiful sights of Budapest and those of the countryside. Hungary has always been a fantastic melting pot of different cultures and people, and I'd be glad to show you all its different shades.

I organize the tours according to your preferences. I offer walking tours and tours in a comfortable car or minivan. In only a few hours you'll learn everything you want and need about Hungary, its people and culture and I'm also glad to share all the secret stories and legends hidden around our beautiful buildings and monuments.

I'm photo editor of Hungary's most popular food magazine, so feel free to ask me about the great Hungarian cuisine and our local traditions. I'd be happy to recommend nice places where you can taste our delicious food.

I would like to show you around my beautiful country that I hope you'll never forget.

A Recent Review of this guide

Julia was great. We walked throughout the city to the Jewish ghetto and then throughout the ghetto. She was informative, interesting and enjoyable. The great synagogue, cemetery and museum were moving especially with Julia's commentary.
