    Very much, actually.

    A: Did you enjoy your holiday?
    B: Very much, actually.

    Hi,
    Can I use really instead of actually?

    Thank you.

    Neither one is very natural. Why not just say "Yes, very much".

    Re: Very much, actually.

    You can say "I really did" to emphasise that you enjoyed it a lot.
    I would say "Actually, I did!" if I hadn't expected to enjoy it but I did.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Pay attention to emsr's post because it also pertains to your other thread about "actual". Had there been a previous discussion about the person not expecting to enjoy the holiday (the contrast), then "Very much, actually" is a logical response.
