Thanks so much for your very comprehensive walking tour of Pest. We saw and learned so much about the buildings, the history and the politics of Hungary. We were all moved by your stories of the Jewish ghetto during WWII. It was not just a dry tour of buildings and dates in history, but about the people and the struggles of a country that sits in the middle of Europe. I highly recommend Julia for her private tours.

Knowledgeable guide to interesting points in Budapest. Julia was recommended by a friend who had previously toured with her. Julia pointed out key landmarks and provided information about places that tourists might pass right by. Her stories of Budapest history and the history of Hungary enriched the experience. Our walking tour started at the chain bridge and wound through the Pest side of the river. We were able to walk at our own pace, including a stop for coffee and strudel. Our tour with a small group of friends was a wonderful way to get acquainted with Budapest on our first day in the city. The background that Julia provided helped us plan out the rest of our visit in Budapest. I highly recommend Julia.

My wife and I met Julia two years ago when she gave us a tour on our first visit to Budapest. She turned out to be our guide on another tour outside of Budapest arranged for our tour group. We had such a good experience then that when we returned this May we made sure to book a tour with Julia for ourselves and two other couples we were traveling with. Everyone agreed it was the best tour of our trip (after a week with Viking River cruises).

What makes Julia’s tour so special is that she quickly connects with you on a personal level so that she can provide context and insights that are of interest to you. She could tell we related more to current politics and recent (20th century) history than to Hapsburg history, so she spent more time on her history growing up during cold war and her grandmother’s experience during WWII as well as today’s politics and the rise of populist candidates and the new nationalism. She has a wide range of knowledge of the history and can show you some special little places to visit as well.

I highly recommend her tours, but book early: we tried several months in advance for a particular day and she was already booked, but by being flexible we were able to get her one day earlier and were very glad we did. We hope to be back again for another tour with Julia in the future.

Mes amis et moi avons eu le plaisir de visiter Budapest durant 2h en compagnie de Julia (visite effectuée le 22/05/2016).
La visite de la ville s’est déroulée dans la bonne humeur et sous un beau soleil. Nous avons pu découvrir plusieurs monuments de la ville et ce, malgré le temps limité (2h). Les explications fournies par Julia étaient très pertinentes et le parcours bien choisi (Basilique, Parlement, monument des chaussures, quartier juif, quartier plus touristique).
Je recommande vivement Julia pour son professionnalisme et sa bonne humeur.
Encore merci Julia ! A bientôt.

January 28th 2016, Julia took me and my lady friend on a wonderful four hour walking tour of Budapest. This is my first experience with a personal tour guide, and to tell the truth I didn’t know what to expect. I contacted Julia via email about a week before I arrived to Hungary. Once the date and time had been agreed upon, Julia said she would be waiting in the lobby of our hotel. Not only was Julia early for our appointed time, but she also sent email reminders in the days leading up to the 28th.
The tour got under way and within minutes I was very please to have hired Julia as our personal guide. Julia’s enthusiasm, knowledge of Budapest, and willingness to answer all questions was nothing short of impressive. She was happy to tailor the tour to our liking, and it was perfect to have someone lead us around so we could focus on the beauty of the city as we learned about it, as opposed to getting lost or trying to figure out city transportation. After a wonderful stroll through the city the tour ended at Budapest Central Market, a marvelous building where Julia arranged to have us sample paprika infused Hungarian sausage.
The tour was great, Budapest is phenomenal and the sausage delicious.
I highly recommend Julia Kravianszky. Her email is jkravianszky@gmail.com.
Enjoy!

Thank you Julia. Friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating and patient. Very honest. Rang her the night before and she met me in my hotel foyer. Remember me Julia? David from Australia. We saw the law students on their graduation 🙂

Budapest was amazing thanks to Julia Kravianszky. We were a family of 4 at the end of a 10 day Europe holiday & a bit toured out. Julia was a breath of fresh air & such a great tour guide we booked her for another day. Julia has a wealth of knowledge about her city, the history of Budapest and it’s contribution to Europe’s history & she knows the current hot spots to visit. I highly recommend Julia for any age or business group. Julia’s enthusiasm is contagious & you will leave her tour wanting to spend another day with her. Julia was prompt, prepared for the day and had a great itinerary planned to best utilize our time with her.Many tours just take you to the outside of landmark buildings but Julia takes you in and gives you information you would otherwise miss. Ask Julia about a 2 day tour seeing both Buda & Pest. Julia’s tours are a great value & you will be so happy exploring the city with her!
