The virtual tour of Budapest was part of our online summer school's programme, organized for 35 participants from all over the world. In order to allow interactive discussions, the tours were held live with a maximum of 10 persons /tour. We visited virtually as one route the Heroes Square and City park, and as another route the Buda Castle District with the Royal Palace and Matthias Church. The Tour was engaging and filled with interesting facts and figures about Budapest, some of which not even a local would know. Julia always adapted the content to the context (real life happenings around her) and accommodated and answered all the questions and requests of the participants. We warmly recommend the tour and would like to thank for Julia for giving some insights to the Budapest architecture, culture, daily life etc. Thank you!

We spent four days with Julia in 2018 during our vacation to Budapest and were blown away with her personality and professionalism.

Add to that her entrepreneurialism! We immediately signed up for her virtual cooking class when she wrote to tell us about it. The tourism industry is devastated and we are stuck at home because of the pandemic so this “tour” is a way to relieve stress, make delicious food, and support our friend financially.

Julia helped us choose our menu, and emailed us a list of ingredients in advance, all readily available even during these trying times. Using FaceTime, we cooked in parallel. Even though Julia is an accomplished chef, we didn’t feel intimidated because she was so encouraging.

Now we have some wonderful Hungarian recipes, learned some new cooking techniques, and reconnected with one of our favorite people.

We discovered Julia Kravianszky from on-line searches for a tour guide to show us the highlights of Budapest. What she offered on her web site, she delivered. Julia was our guide for two days of tours in and around Budapest and we would highly recommend her. She is a great guide, very well-informed, speaks perfect English. She has a lovely friendly manner that instantly forms a bond with you. She is a happy person who spreads happiness. We are history buffs and Julia provided a comprehensive understanding of the history and culture of Budapest and Hungary. She has a deep love of her city and country and very importantly Julia knows how to adapt to the wishes and constraints of her customers.

During two days, Julia took us on a 4 hour driving tour of Budapest showing us all the main sights of the city. In the evening we toured Budapest to see the lights and the views including a delightful cruise on the Danube. On the second day, we undertook the gastronomic tour of the city on foot in the morning and then drove a short distance out of the city to enjoy tasting the local wines.

We had a marvellous time - thanks to Julia.

A group of ten of us visited Budapest last year, and were fortunate enough to share a day of wine tasting on a tour led by Julia. When we heard about the opportunity to visit her virtually for a cooking class, we jumped at the chance! Julia was very accommodating, and spent a very late night (for her) teaching us to make soup. It was a great chance to make something we’d enjoyed in Budapest at home, but it was also a great chance to “visit” with Julia. Soup turned out well, but it was also a great chance to see her again. Julia is very engaging and does an amaing job of giving people a perspective on life half way across the world. She is knowledgeable on the area, history, and current trends, and the time spent flew by in a fascinating discussion about soup, our trip, and current events. I can’t recommend this experience strongly enough. Julia is a great resource and our time spent was a wonderful break from the monotony of life under travel restrictions! We are already planning a second “visit” with Julia!

Julia was the perfect blend of knowledge, personality, and enthusiasm. WE LOVED IT!
If you have never been to Budapest, just go with what she recommends - it will give you a lot of the history, landmarks, and you will learn the layout of the city, recommendations for restaurants and sight to see. Highly recommend !

Budapest was a revelation for me and part of that was because of our guide Julia. Apart from her formidable knowledge of the history of the city she delivered it to us in manageable 'bite sized' pieces. There is always a lot to learn in a new city and she gave us the time line and examples of each era. It was fantastic. She is passionate about her country and I could totally see why. I will definitely return. As one of the reviewers already said she feels like a friend! We covered so much and there wasn't a dull moment. Well done Julia. You are great.

Julia and her driver met us at the river boat cruise terminal at 9:00 AM o start an amazing day of touring Budapest and the environs outside of it. Julia's first question was what have you seen and what do you want to see?

Since we had been in port and done a city walking tour the prior day, we explained what we had seen and that we'd put ourselves in her hands so she could show us her 'hometown and the area outside of it.

Neither she nor our driver disappointed. She truly knows the ins and outs of Budapest and was able to provide us with wonderful knowledge of the city. We were with them for the entire day and they dropped us off at our hotel.

She even suggested that a couple of additional sites to see on our own the next day, as they were within easy walking distance of our hotel the next day.

While it was not an inexpensive day, it was money well spent.

We booked Julia for three consecutive days and could not have been happier. Two days in Budapest and one day in Holoko. Her love of the city, the Hungarian history, and culture made the sites we saw take on more meaning than just a beautiful building, monument or view. Which there were plenty of! Having Hungarian roots she took us through the large farmers market shopping for us to have an incredible lunch picnic of foods I remembered from my childhood at the end of our second day. Highly recommend.

My husband and I had the pleasure of experiencing Budapest through the eyes of an exceptional tour guide, Julia. She 100% made our visit to this beautiful city unforgettable with her in-depth knowledge, enthusiasm, and warm personality.

We were greeted by Julia with a box of chocolates as she congratulated us on our honeymoon. Julia demonstrated an impressive depth of knowledge about Budapest's history, culture, and landmarks. She provided historical context and engaging stories at every stop. It was like having a living encyclopedia by our side!

It would have taken us 4 days navigating ourselves to see everything she showed us in 7 hours. We appreciated how she took us to some local spots and some great "photo op" stops as well. We cant recommend Julia enough!

When you look for a private tour guide in Budapest many names pop up. I’m a very experienced traveler and without knowing her decided to go along with Julia because something looked appealing to me in the way she described herself. My wife asked “who recommended her”and I said nobody it was just a feeling.
Well my feelings were right. Julia is amazingly knowledgable and above all an exceptionally pleasant woman. She adapted the tour to our needs and we spent an amazing day with her, a group of 5 in a cosy van.
It’s not important what we saw, the important is who takes you there. I highly recommend to book a tour with her, you won’t regret it.
I chose her by a hunch, you are lucky to have my review and know that you choose correctly.
