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!

We had had a great time with Claudia who gave us a lot of information, about history and everyday life of Budapest. The guide was fun, professional and kind. Although it was a very hot day, thanks to Claudia we enjoyed the tour. We recommend it to everyone. We will surely join some of the other tours.
