Pour votre première visite à Budapest, je vous propose une visite toute complète et personnelle. Je voudrais vous montrer la Budapest où j’ai grandi, la Budapest qui est selon moi la plus belle ville du monde.

Nous débuterons le tour sur la place des Héros, la place principale historique de la ville, où en présentant les statues, je peux vous donner un bref aperçu de l’histoire hongroise. Nous nous promenerons autour du Bois de Ville et visiterons le petit château de Vajdahunyad.

Nous retournerons au centre-ville au long de la  fameuse avenue Andrássy, entourée par les splendides palais du 19ème siècle, tous classés au Patrimoine mondial de l’UNESCO. Nous visiterons le foyer principal de l’Opéra d’État. Puis nous observerons la Basilique Saint-Étienne, la plus grande église catholique de Budapest, construite pendant 55 ans. En montant au sommet du dôme de la Basilique, vous profiterez de la vue magnifique sur Pest.

Nous nous baladerons sur la place de la Liberté. Je vous montrerai ensuite les monuments les plus contertés de la Seconde Guerre mondiale et les plus beaux exemples de l’architecture hongroise Art Nouveau. Nous verrons le deuxième plus grand édifice du Parlement de l’Europe.

Après avoir traversé le Danube sur le Pont des Chaînes de 170 ans, nous découvrirons les rues pavées Quartier du Château de Buda. Je vais vous montrer des petites maisons colorées datées du Moyen Age et la vue extraordinaire depuis le haut du Bastion des Pêcheurs. Je vous présenterai l’église la plus ancienne de Buda, l’église Mathias.

Puis nous conduirons au sommet de la colline Gellért de 235 mètres de haut, vous pourrez prendre des photos exceptionnelles de Buda et de Pest de la terrasse de la Citadelle. Je vous montrerai les célèbres thermes Gellért et l’église de la grotte de Budapest.

Nous reviendrons à Pest pour explorer le Marché Central. Je vous présenterai les vendeurs locaux et vous pouvez acheter du paprika et des vins hongrois. Nous y pouvons également déguster du saucisson, du fromage ou du strudel.

Enfin, nous découvrirons le quartier juif. Je vous ferai voir le célèbre triangle des synagogues et des monuments poignants commémorant le ghetto de Budapest.

Julia was fantastic! She picked us up promptly at our cruise ship and showed us around her beautiful city. One of our group is handicapped, and Julia was very patient and accommodating. It was a cold, rainy day but Julia brought us sunshine! She changed the tour to suit our needs and took us to a wonderful lunch spot. Highly recommend.

Julia is a fantastic tour guide . She knows Budapest inside out and has a lot of knowledge about the history, the culture and all the monuments. Her English and French are superb and she is a very nice person . We had a great day touring Buda and Pest with her .

Booked a full day tour with Julia and a driver. They met us at the hotel just as promised. The vehicle was a brand new Merc people hauler and very comfortable. Julia was able to customize the tour on the fly as things came up. Julia was very knowledgeable and curious. A great introduction to Budapest.

We spent four 8 hours days with Julia with a goal of seeing the best of Budapest and the surrounding areas. She did the planning for our adventure and we were delighted with the sites and all of the information she provided. She was prepared to deal with changing weather conditions so we were always on the move. We highly recommend her service!

The first day was a walking tour. We visited the local market where we ate fresh sausage/shopped, went to the local finest chocolate shop, along the way visited many beautiful parks, stopped in the Jewish Quarter, went to a pub followed by tasting some local food and finally ended the afternoon on a speed boat ride on the river. Julia was personable and answered a LOT of questions for us.

The next day, we did a walking/driving tour of Budapest. I had NO idea we would accomplish seeing so many sites in one day. In reality, in less than 12 hours I felt like I saw the highlights of Budapest and met a new friend. Julia made us feel so comfortable and answered so many questions regarding history, culture and economy. She is quite knowledgeable of the history of Budapest. I must not close without saying Julia was very trustworthy. If you are looking for a tour guide, look no further. You are not going to find anyone better.

I liaised with Julia in the organization of a birthday trip for 11 guys. Julia gave invaluable advice, suggestions on activities based on the criteria I gave her, booked all the tours, transfers and even sourced the most amazing restaurants for them. My list of questions over the weeks were always answered quickly and gave me great confidence in the trip we were pulling together. On their return, they could not speak more highly of Julia. The tours that she organized and accompanied them on were all enjoyed tremendously and they thoroughly enjoyed her knowledge of Budapest. Highly recommend anyone that is arranging a trip to Budapest to use Julia.

Julia is about the best of the best tour guides. She is the sweetest and so knowledgeable. I usually get very bored with guided tour guides but she has the ability to keep you interested and entertained. She also knows history and weird facts about everything!! 100 percent recommend and you won’t regret!

Four of us, two couples, happily toured Budapest and several other small towns with Julia for 2 days. She was so informative and obviously loves her city. She was completely flexible in terms of where we went and had lots of suggestions for us based on our interests.

We also hired a driver to enable us to maximize our time in Budapest as we wanted to do more than we had hours for!! Oh, and I guess some of you might be interested to know that the car was VERY clean and comfortable. Water was provided which was nice.

Our first stop, completely a surprise for Julia, was the Jewish quarter and synagogue. She gave us the full history of what we were seeing and made the whole experience so much more personal than just seeing a sight. I walked away just in awe of all she was able to explain and make come to life.

Julia was able to recommend wonderful restaurants. Try goose ragout if it’s on the menu!!

If you have the opportunity to go to Budapest, maximize your enjoyment and understanding by hiring Julia to take you around to the things that interest you. You won’t regret it at all.

We enjoyed a great private tour with Julia. She’s so sweet and full of the little details that you want to hear when you visit a new place. Thank you very much, highly recommended!

We traveled with our son and daughter-in-law through Central Europe and took a day trip to Budapest with Julia as our tour guide. This was one of several tours we took in various cities. We all agreed that Budapest was the high point of our trip and that Julia was our favorite guide. She went above and beyond the call of duty during difficult circumstances to get us in and out of Hungary. She is knowledgable, professional and friendly and obviously loves her city and wants her guests to love it as well. She’s fun to be with and she made us wish for more time in Budapest! It was just the four of us, which allowed her to tailor the tour exclusively to us. I highly recommend Julia for anyone who wants to tour Budapest.

Not only was Julia extremely knowledgeable about the history, customs and many beautiful places to visit in Budapest and it’s surroundings, she also has a very warm and sincere enthusiasm in communicating them. We visited many out of the way spots that only a true native would know about. What really sets Julia apart is her ability to share and relate her own life story and experiences to the recent history of Hungary, particularly the impact and effects of the German and Russian occupations on several generations of her family. We were very fortunate to spend two days touring Budapest and its surroundings with her. Thanks Julia….!! Tim and Leslie
