Budapest is known to be one of the most scenic and beautiful cities. It's charm attracts people from all around the world. Now it's your turn to discover it. It's really a "breath of fresh air" among other capitals more advertised. A foreign friend of mine believes that the city still is rather underrated, so she has become an ardent "promoter" of the Budapest overseas. About the tailor-made walks : I have opted for organizing personalized sightseeing walks instead of large-scale tours in order to provide quality service. While the routes may also lead to well-known sights, they will eventually venture into areas located off-the-beaten path - to give you a chance to glimpse behind the touristic scene. The walks are thus tailored to your needs and enable you to gain insight into everyday life, the arts, and architecture of Budapest. You will be able to explore the most authentic aspects of Budapest, as if shown around by a local friend.Guiding is also available in Italian & Spanish.
