My family is originally from the countryside. My grandparents have a little plot of land and a country home where I used to spend my summers growing vegetables, meanwhile my grandparents were making salami and palinka. 😊 Budapest holds a special place in my heart since this is where I was born, grew up, and studied. It is my home and I would not change that, since I have fallen in love with Budapest’s night panorama. I studied at a bilingual high school and went on to study Hungarian language and grammar at university, while acting in theater productions. I truly enjoy being surrounded by people, be it my classmates or friends, so I decided to acquire a tour guide qualification. Ever since, I have been living my dream by leading walking tours. Everyone who attends my tours will see why I love the city as much as I do. JOIN US AND FEEL THE CITY!

Excellent tour and guide. Only issue was almost 60 people on the tour, he did a good job considering how hard it was to move as a group through crowded streets, but he did the best he could. Really should put a limit on group size.

The tour was cancelled at the time it was supposed to start (apparently due to the Chinese president‘s visit, but we did not know this at the time)! We went there and the police informed us that we couldn’t access the meeting polt. The guide wasn’t there and didn’t answer my messages. I am really disappointed. First, the tour guide should have been aware of the Chinese president‘s visit and should not have offered the tour at all. And second, if he/she was unaware of it, he/she should have responded to us or notified us! At the very least, an apology would have been appropriate.
