Julia is an exceptional guide. We had two tours, a 1/2 day food/market tour, followed by a full day walking tour. That's a lot of time to spend with a "stranger " but Julia's personal warmth & charm, excellent English, & engaging style will quickly have you realising you've definitely picked the right guide. She's passionate about her country & her culture but also honest an open about its history. She is informative without lecturing & happy to converse on many topics. Just book her, you won't regret it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Stephen!!

Julia is a wonderful guide and this tour is highly enjoyable not only for the food but also the insights into the Hungarian way of life both now and 30 years ago. A food tour is a great way to experience a city and it's people, the way they shop, socialise and celebrate. Julia certainly brings a great deal of warmth to her tours and we thoroughly recommend her to you.

Julia is an amazing tour guide! Punctual, educated, passionate and fun—-perfect combination. Our first half day tour was a discovery of Pest with Julia providing excellent commentary. At one point, Julia lead us though a nondescript door that lead to a courtyard full of history, at another point we ventured into a Ruin bar for a peek at modern Pest. Our half day Buda tour was equally informative and amazing. Julia knew the paths that avoided tourist packed sections but still provided incredible views.

I highly recommend Julia! Unfortunately, it rained all day in Budapest-but she made it delightful! Her knowledge of her city is both informative and interesting. She had all the little shortcuts that a tourist could not know to get around both in Buda and Pest. She showed us so many amazing sites. She took us to wonderful gems of restaurants-making our trip in Budapest memorable. Julia went beyond our expectations. She gave us directions and suggestions after our tour was over to further our experience.

Julia was our guide. She showed with her driver in a Mercedes van. We saw a ton of stuff but did not feel rushed. She really has a passion for her heritage and hit the highlights enough to get a good understanding of Budapest both culturally and historically. We returned to 3 of the highlights and know that there is enough to keep us coming back maybe 3 more times. If it is possible we will be looking to have Julia accompany us again.

Julia K. was excellent on our Budapest "foodie tour". It was delightful to visit the various small food shops and local vendors in the city. But most important was the obvious enthusiasm that she had for sharing her knowledge of her city. Just delightful to hear of some of her childhood memories of the city, such as when the first McDonalds opened in Budapest. Also as Americans, we enjoyed hearing her impressions of a first visit to New York City. In the end, just a delightful experience - Köszi

I can not imagine having a tour guide better than Julia! We learned so much about the history and important places to see in Budapest. Julia not only knows her history, but she is a very pleasant woman to be around. And she has a great sense of humor. Julia was punctual. She kept us on track so that we could visit and see all of the places she had in mind for us. Yet we never felt rushed. Then, as a bonus, she sat down with us afterwards and marked more important destinations on a map. Great recommends!

We wound our way through coffee shops, pastry shops, restaurants, and even a new soup take-out joint! We were shown a local grocery store with treats! Who knew we would all like the varieties of sausages and paprika?! We ended up on a rooftop bar drinking traditional drinks! It was a great tour of food in Budapest!

We toured the city in an air conditioned van and on foot. She introduced us to areas on both the Pest and Buda sides of the river. She gave us information that would benefit us on our 2 and half more days in the city. She advised us on public transportation and checked opening hours of places we wanted to visit.

Our guide adapted to an unexpected situation. My camera had broken shortly before the tour. As I planned to shop for a new camera the next day, my guide said, "we will take you to a shopping mall, and I will help you purchase a new camera." We did without loosing too much time. My guide also found a place, as we visited a one of the tour sights, to charge the new battery. The overall tour was great, and I no longer had to worry about purchasing a new camera at a business that didn't speak my language.

My husband and I booked a private "communism" tour with Julia on July 9, 2018, which we really enjoyed! Julia met us in the lobby of our hotel and we spent a half-day walking around the city seeing the sights related to the communist period. Julia grew up in Budapest in the 80s and 90s so she provided very interesting insight about the communist period and the transition to democracy. Julia speaks fluent English and was a very engaging guide. Would definitely recommend this tour to a friend.

Julia's tour was fascinating - we learned so much from her both in terms of art and architecture, but also in terms of Budapest's rich history and current political climate. It changed the way we enjoyed Budapest from that point forward, because we just looked a little more closer and with more understanding at everything around us.
