We had a marvelous time virtual touring with Julia. We 'walked' around with her as she told us stories about the city. The best part was being able to interact with her as we went. When we can we will go to Budapest and hire Julia for a 'real' tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David, it was a pleasure to show you virtually around my beautiful Budapest.

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Daniel!

Julia was fantastic! She picked us up promptly at our cruise ship and showed us around her beautiful city. One of our group is handicapped, and Julia was very patient and accommodating. It was a cold, rainy day but Julia brought us sunshine! She changed the tour to suit our needs and took us to a wonderful lunch spot. Highly recommend.

Tour: #492428, Eger and Wine daytrip by car, Budapest, Budapest, Hungary    view tour
Date: Dec 14/19

Whenever I visit a large city such as Budapest, I try to balance it with time in the countryside. This day trip to Eger is a good way to do just that. Julia was the perfect guide for us with her enthusiasm for her country's history and willingness to share it. She also knew exactly which of the wine caves to take us to for samples of the sweet varieties my wife and I enjoy. By all means, take this tour with Julia and try the Bull's Blood. You won't be disappointed!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Ronald!

Booked a full day tour with Julia and a driver. They met us at the hotel just as promised. The vehicle was a brand new Merc people hauler and very comfortable. Julia was able to customize the tour on the fly as things came up. Julia was very knowledgeable and curious. A great introduction to Budapest.

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.

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.

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!

We really enjoyed this tour. Julia took us to all of these different shops and cafes to sample the different foods of Hungary. Every place we stopped she furnished a sample of the foods for us to eat. By the time we finished the tour, we were stuffed. I think our favorite places were the market, the Gelarto Rosa and the butcher shop Belvarosi Disznotoros with all of the different meats. Julia is a lot of fun and knows the places to go for you to sample the best of Budapest.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Gene, it was a pleasure to show you around the best Budapest foodie places.

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.

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Elizabeth!!
