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!

The tour and the guide were very nice! The guide is very prepared. To improve the tour, I would suggest to have more stops (with quicker explanations). Also, not only the very touristic points, but also some tiny local spots (that only locals know)! Still, overall a very nice tour :)
