“We took a trip to Budapest, Hungary, to visit our daughter who was studying abroad. I was very interested in learning about the rich history of Budapest. Our tour guide, Ildiko, was wonderful! She provided us with a plethora of information about Budapest, as well as taking us to some of the most beautiful places. She was knowledgeable in every aspect of the Budapest culture. I highly recommend a tour with Ildiko if you ever have the pleasure of visiting this beautiful city!”

“My family and I took the Buda tour with Ildiko and we’re so impressed. She is so personable: upon meeting her, she makes you feel like you’ve been friends you’re whole life. Her knowledge of Hungarian history and politics is unbelievable. She’ll show you the most beautiful buildings, monuments and views of Budapest while explaining their relevancy. I would recommend this tour to any foreigner visting Budapest, your stay will not be complete without it!”

“I worked with Ildiko for over 13 years. She planned and led the field excursions for my students and I had the privilege to travel with her on dozens of excursions throughout Hungary. Ildiko is exceptionally knowledgeable, has extensive contacts, an unerring sense of what will prove to be both fun and educational and she is one of the best people I know in any country. I recommend her as a tour guide in the very highest terms. Like the great Bob Dent, her love of Hungary is infectious.”

Charles, USA

“Ildiko was a wonderful host. The tour was very informative. Ildiko is very passionate about history of Budapest and Hungary. The tour took us through beautiful areas of the city, with many places to stop for photos. Ildiko also took us to a wonderful pastry shop for an authentic taste of Hungarian delights. The balance of history, views, a pastry and Ildiko’s personal touches made this a wonderful experience! She also suggested other things to do and places to eat during our visit. A great experience!”
