Welcome! I'm Cathy, and tour guiding is my passion and chosen profession. I want to show you how we live our life in this great (but small) country: Hungary.
Born and raised in the capital Budapest, I used to be a professional musician (classical music) and played the cello in many orchestras. With my string quartet we performed and did recordings in North America and Europe. Having spent 7 years in Canada, I settled again in Budapest and decided to become a tour guide.
Besides my private tours, I've also been working with the following international travel agencies: Uniworld, Grand Circle, Tui, Gate1, Tauck, AMA Waterways, APT, Alsace Croisičre. I stayed faithful to the fine arts in my guiding: music, painting, architecture. While showing you "the best of" Hungary, I will tailor your tour to your particular interests.
I am happily married and the mother of two son, so family life inevitably taught me how to put together a fun program even for your 6 year old kid. . . !
If you take a tour with me, please, let me know any interests and hobbies, so we can plan your tours accordingly.

Since 1993 I have been working actively as a Budapest private tour guide, leading sightseeing tours in four languages: Hungarian, English, French, and German: city-tour, customised tours, Budapest walking tours, Budapest and Hungary bicycle tours. I am also a driver guide, tourist guide for Jewish Budapest, Jewish Heritage and children’s tours. I am enchanted by Arts: music, painting, architecture - I used to do inner guiding in the Budapest Opera, Hungarian Parliament, Museum of Fine Arts, Hungarian National Gallery, and the Palace of Godollo. I also teach languages and tour guiding. I am happily married and mother of two sons, so family life inevitably taught me how to put together a fun program for your 6-year-old kid...
