My wife and I so enjoyed our time touring Budapest with Julia! She is so knowledgeable about the history and sites of the city, and does it with such ease and grace! She also has a great and subtle sense of humor which we really appreciated. Having a driver allowed us to cover a good amount of ground. She also gave us some terrific restaurant recommendations. We highly recommend using Julia!
