Katalin took us on a half day Communist tour, showing us the impact of both Naziism and Communism on the city. She was a terrific guide, wholly engaging and entertaining, answering all our questions enthusiastically and knowledgably.

My husband and I engaged Katalin for 2 half day walking tours. She really gave us an insight to the history and culture of this beautiful city. She has the knowledge as well as a pleasant personality. The time which we spent with her flew by and we were filled with interesting facts and stories. I would highly recommend her.

We had the most wonderful tour of the Jewish Quarter with Katalin She truly brought us back to the time and situation that faced the Jews of Budapest during the Nazi alliance. Her knowledge of the situations leading to the local pogrom was enhanced by her firsthand knowledge of her own relatives’ situation. It even included the papers provided by... More

Katalin was easily one of the best tour guides we have ever had. She was friendly, arrived on time and made the tour a pleasure for us. We booked her for the Budapest Communist tour. I would not hesitate to recommend her. The four hours we spent with her just flew by.

We toured the Jewish Quarter of Budapest with Katalin and found her to be an outstanding guide. She has intimate knowledge of this critically important aspect of Budapest's history and introduced us to such places as residential courtyards and a small synagogue that fall outside the typical tourist trail. Our stop at a small bakery for flodni and coffee was... More

I had the very good fortune to be put in touch with Katalin for a personal food tour of Budapest. She tailored the tour to my preferences and thus we visited chocolate shops, the central market and the best bakery in all of Budapest. Her knowledge of everything (not just food) was most impressive and I can not recommend her... More

We spent 6 hours+ with Katalin touring Buda and Pest. Her husband kindly chauffeured. This tour was outstanding, definitely a highlight of our vacation. Katalin was immensely talented in tailoring the tour to individual interests, while providing much insight into past and present Hungarian life. Our day certainly exceeded our expectations. Katalin was skilled, very personable and obviously a woman... More

We did a private tour with Katalin of Buda and Pest. She and her driver provided us with a magnificent tour of an amazing city. We spent 9 hours with them touring the area and learned of the history and life in Hungary. Our afternoon lunch was eaten at a local restaurant and the food was amazing. Can't thank them... More
