Obviously I love traveling, but at the moment I spend most of my time with my two babies at home or guiding people around Budapest.
I 'm doing informative and entertaining walking tours in Budapest for Free Budapest Walking Tours Company.
Free Budapest Walking Tour is to learn about the history, society, architecture and what Hungarians are actually like.
Free Communist Walking Tour is to understand the daily life of the Communist and post-Communist societies and visiting symbols of the "Soviet friendship".
Free Jewish Quarter and the Best Pubs tour is to learn about the Jewish heritage and visit the hidden treasures of the area.
