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. ūüėä 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‚Äôs 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!

The guide, Sophie was extremely knowledgeable about the history and made the experience engaging for everyone. One highlight was a quiz that our guide prepared, which was a fun way to test our knowledge. Overall, I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area as it's a fantastic way to explore the city and learn about its history and culture in a fun and interactive way.

I had a lovely time on the tour and learned a great deal about the Buda side in just a few hours. The tour guide, Karoly/ Koraly (apologies for not remembering the correct spelling) was quite knowledgeable, passionate, friendly and made the tour fun. He asked the group about their individual interests as we visited the different sites to give us personalised information and detailed answers about the region's history, architecture, culture and gastronomy. We also got lots of interesting trivia about Hungarian life. At the end of the trip, he recommended several local eateries and attractions we could visit and how else to enjoy the whole Budapest experience. Great experience overall and one I would definitely recommend!
