Julia is an extremely knowledgeable guide, and passionate about Budapest. She conveys the beauty, history, tragedy, and vitality of the city in an unforgettable way. The very poignant aspects of our Jewish walking tour were balanced by her enthusiasm, humor, candor, patience, and her incredible insight. Julia is a truly outstanding tour guide, and I can't imagine a better way to be charmed by Budapest!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, it was wonderful to be with your family and to show you around the Jewish Quarter of Budapest. Thank you for your kind words!

We had the most wonderful tour with Julia! To start with, she is very personable and warm so we felt comfortable immediately! Julia is very knowledgeable about all things Budapest and shared so much information with us; from Jewish history to overall Budapest/Hungarian history to life in Budapest today. We walked alot and felt invigorated with every step! Julia was open to our every request & took us to a few off the beaten path places. It was our pleasure to share such a memorable day together.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for sharing your review, I’m really pleased to see how much you enjoyed the tour. I hope you’ll keep nice menories of Budapest.

Julia was fantastic. We spent 4 quality hours learning all about the Hungarian Freedon Fighters (my name for the tour). Julia could answer any question we ask, not only about Budapest, but also Hungary in general. One thing we especially liked is Julia's obvious love of her country and her city, it's contagious! Her personal insights added a lot to the tour. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: A huge thank you for your kind words, I’m very happy I had the chance to meet your family and to introduce you Budapest and its communist past. Have a wonderful time in my beautiful city!

Our group hired Julia for two days, the first being the Danube Bend, which I already reviewed, and the second day touring Budapest and vineyards outside Budapest. Again the attention to our interests and her dedication to see that even the smallest request were not only met but exceeded make for an unforgettable experience. Julia is knowledgable, personable, and yet open and an instant friend. Wonderful guide, highly recommended. Thanks again, Julia. You made our trip. Robert D and group
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, I'm happy that I had the chance to meet you and to show you the hidden gems of the city that I love. Kindest regards, Julia

Julia worked with my wife and me and another couple to custom plan our full day Danube Bend excursion. The experience could not have been better. From prompt pick up at our hotel to even the smallest details Julia exceeded our expectations. Her knowledge of and passion for her home country were evident throughout our time together. We HIGHLY recommend Julia and will request her services again should we visit Budapest in the future. Thanks, Julia, you were the high point of our trip. Robert D and group
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much it was an honor to be with you and to introduce you the Danube Bend. I'm very pleased to see that you enjoyed the experience. 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 was absolutely fantastic. We did the Art and Architecture talk - my husband and I and 18 year old daughter. 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. One of our favorite events of the whole trip! Book this!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words, I’m so happy that you all enjoyed touring with me. It was a pleasure to show you around and I hope you’ll keep great memories of my beautiful Budapest.

Julia was fantastic! We were provided a perfect day in Budapest complete with history, lots of fun and great food. Thank you for a wonderful day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the great view, I’m really happy I had the chance to introduce you my beautiful city.
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
