Though Budapest, the heart-stealing capital of Hungary is my place of birth and I grew up here, I have lived in Coventry, U. K. and New York, N. Y. for a while, where I learnt my English.
As a tour guide, I have 13 years of professional experience with travellers mainly from the U. S. A. , Canada, the U. K. , Australia, New Zealand, India, Korea, and I hope YOU are going to be next!
Come with me and explore the best Budapest has to offer. From UNESCO world heritage sites, such as the Castle, the Parliament, Heroes' Square and St Stephen's Cathedral, through local music and art traditions to Hungarian food and drink specialties, I will ensure you get the most out of your Budapest stay.
I would be happy to show you Budapest's hidden treasures as well, such as the atmospheric Jewish Quarter, the shocking memorabilia of Communism and Cold War, magnificent spas and some really unique shops - the quirky details that make a tour memorable as you discover Budapest's past, present and future.
Travel like everyday residents of the city on the old underground, the legendary yellow trams or take walks - the best way to experience Budapest. However, if you prefer to explore the world in comfort, let's discover the sights in a private car/minivan together.
All my tours are fully customized to your interests and flexible on the day(s) to take account of any special events taking place or the weather. With me, as your own private guide, you will have the time to fully experience Budapest, stopping to take the perfect photo or popping into one of the historical cafés, covered markets or wine bars we pass.
If you have an extended stay in Hungary, join me and explore some of my favorite places on a half-day or day tour near Budapest. Castles, impressive countryside and unbeatable hospitality are waiting for you.
Be my guest. You will get a lot more in Budapest than you have ever imagined!
A Recent Review of this guide
Niki provided us with a wonderful tour of Budapest. Her English is excellent and she is very knowledgeable concerning her city. The vehicle she provided was clean, modern and spacious. She was very adept at guiding us through crowds. She is very personable and accommodating to ingeniously allow us to visit a tourist site that was not on the itinerary and where parking the vehicle was extremely difficult. I highly recommend her as a tourist guide

My tours are either light/moderate walking tours or very comfortable tours by private car/minivan. In the latter case, since I am not a driver, clean & comfortable A/C-d private cars/minivans with driver are organized for the tour.
