Julia was an incredible guide. We only had four hours to see the major sites in Budapest and she arranged everything for us, got us around the city, and explained everything. She was attentive, informative, and extremely professional. I would recommend her to anyone traveling to Budapest. In addition, I needed some help with a cake for my fiances 40th birthday and she gave us a great suggestion.

We just returned from our Eastern Europe trip and met a lot of guides. Although everyone was excellent, Julia was definitely our favorite. She really tailored the tour to make it personal, picking up on our interests and the pace we desired. She was willing to make extra stops that we asked for and never rushed us. Julia was interesting, knowledgeable, fun and personable. She made us very comfortable and really educated us on the past and present of Budapest. I would recommend Julia to everyone.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Ian!

My family (myself,my wife and two teenagers) spent a full day in Budapest with Julia. She was a wonderful tour guide and was able to show us all the highlights of the city in one day. Her expert guidance helped us to see things we never would have seen from a book and she also kept the tour fun for our whole family. I would highly recommend her as a tour guide to anyone looking to tour Budapest.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Bruce for the review, it was a pleasure to meet you all!

We had a great tour with Julia. She took us all around Budapest, showed us the main sites and had a great knowledge of the city's history. It was fun to discover all these different areas, and to get the perspective of a local. She tailored the tour to our needs, and gave us some good recommendations for things to do later. Thank you Julia for showing us your city!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Meredith for your kind words!

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 fun and knowledgeable guide. We did a full day walking tour grand Budapest and Jewish history. She really organized and navigated the day well with walking and public transportation which was an excellent way to enjoy the city. We learned a lot of history and was very easy to talk to and open to a lot of question asking. Thank you for a wonderful day in Budapest

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Caryn, I hope you’ll keep nice memories from my beautiful Budapest.

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Melissa!!

What a wonderful day! We visited so many sights with Julia's knowledge of the public transportation system. At each venue, we saw not only what was on display, but had the insight of someone who actually lived through some of the history. We asked for the best goulash place and we got it. Fantastic.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Susan, it was a pleasure to meet you and to show you around my beautiful Budapest.

Excellent tour and our best tour of our vacation! Saw all the highlights of Budapest and more!!! When I first contacted Julia to arrange for our two half day tours of Budapest, she was very flexible and attentive to our wish list. As a native of Budapest, Julia customized two perfect half days for us to see all the sights via local transportation (very little walking). Her English is perfect and I would highly recommend her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Doreen, it was such a great pleasure to be with you and to introduce you my beautiful Budapest. Kindest regards, Julia

My wife and I travel frequently and have had experience with guides all over the world. This was our first time in Budapest and the 8 hours that we spent on a walking tour with Julia greatly exceeded our expectations. Her knowledge of Hungarian history and culture was extensive. She made the history and features of the places that we visited come alive, and our day flew by quickly. Her knowledge and friendly demeanor, as well as her sensitivity to our needs made her an outstanding guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mark for your kind words, I’m very pleased that you enjoyed the tour, it was a great pleasure to show you around Budapest.

Julia nous a accompagné dans sa ville qu'elle sait parfaitement valoriser. un tour rapide dans cette grande ville sans s'attarder sur les choses que l'on peu découvrir soit même. accueillante , souriante , Julia nous a raconté avec beaucoup de détail et de passion l'histoire de son pays et de sa ville. sans elle nous n'aurions certainement pas imaginé se qui ce cache derrière les magnifiques monuments de cette ville surprenantes. Nous aurions aimé découvrir un peu plus les choses insolites, backstage.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci beaucoup, je suis tres heureuse d'avoir eu la chance de vous présenter ma belle Budapest.

Budapest was the highlight of our time in Europe and that is largely due to the two days we spent with Julia. Julia's knowledge of the history, architecture, wine, food, her willingness to share her personal experiences and incite into current political and social challenges facing her city and country was what made our time there so enjoyable and rewarding. We asked a lot of tough questions :) Julia was understanding of our groups needs and flexible to make sure we got the most of our time together.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tim, Thank you very much for your kind words! It was a pleasure to meet you all and to show you around my beautiful Budapest. I’m very happy that you enjoyed the tours and that you’ll keep nice memories from my city. Again, the pleasure was all mine. Kindest regards, Julia
