Hello! My name is Ildiko or Ildi. I'm a real traveler at heart, Zumba and tasty food lover. I studied International Relations & Intercultural Communication, and I'm a private local guide who loves this beautiful capital city. And I not only love it but I have discovered the little secrets of each district. I will make sure to show you the best spots that Budapest has to offer and to tell you the most interesting stories. The experience that I provide has a local feature because I believe this way you will get a true sens of the local culture and history. Also I look forward to meeting you and making you fall in love with the Pearl of the Danube, Budapest. Families with children are more than welcome on my experience! I will make sure that the walk is engaging for everyone.

Ildiko organized a great tour in Budapest. She told the old and rich History of the city. She shared her culture and her knowledge about Hungary. Ildiko is a kind and friendly person. I thank her very much for all of these discoveries. It was a fantastic experience.

Ildiko was a wonderful guide and left us both much more knowledgable about the history of Budapest, but also with a deep appreciation and admiration for its culture and people. I would highly recommend this as the first stop for those visiting Budapest to get an understanding of the city layout, it's history, and also to get amazing recommendations of what to do and see during the rest of your trip. It is a bit of a hike, so it wouldn't hurt to have a bottle of water with you, especially if you've had a late night at the ruins bars the night before. :)

Ildiko was a super knowledgable guide, we were able to learn a lot about Hungarian history, she included stories and took us to all the main attractions with great back stories. Ildiko is a super warm and friendly person and I felt like her love of the city was evident in the way she described everything for us. This was a very cool introduction to Hungary and we really loved this experience. I would highly recommend this experience! It was just my husband and I so we got to enjoy a private tour, but even if there had been some more people it would have been just as wonderful. She gave us great recommendations, and even took us to a local cake shop that was amazing!

The walk through Budapest with Ildiko was a really entertaining and interesting experience. We saw a lot and Ildiko shared her huge knowlegde with us about all the historic spots we met. Additionally we could ask her endless questions about everything and had interesting discussions about political life in hungary. We enjoyed delicious hungarian strudel together and at the end it felt like walking aroung with a friend.
