I am a Budapest-loving local and I want to share with you my enthusiasm for Budapest. Its special atmosphere that is a combination of history, the colorful culture, the people, and their love of our land. I studied art and history and have worked as a professional guide for years. Spending time with my grandmother, listening to her stories, learning to cook the the traditional recipes was a great inspiration for me. I'd love to show you my beloved city.

HIGHLIGHTS of the tours are :

  • The local multi-cultural neighborhood, with Szimpla Kert, the famous ruin bar.
  • The Memorial Garden of Wallenberg.
  • The most important Jewish communal places.
  • only localéy known hidden gems
