We are the Behind Budapest Guide Team!
I've finished my studies in April 2011, and I've been working as a qualified guide ever since. If you are interested not just in the facts and figures but also the way locals live their life, I'm your man! I was born and raised in Budapest so I have been an eyewitness to a sleeping beauty's transformation to a multi-cultural metropolis. I can be your insider man to understand the Hungarians better, and to have some experiences with the local life.
I truly believe that the basis of this profession is the accurate, exciting and detailed information. Since I prefer books over the Internet, I can spend whole days in a library trying to find one single piece of information someone managed to sweat me with. I’m dangerously talkative, I’m an avid fan of Hungarian water polo and a huge admirer of Robert Capa. I love literature, legends, sport, mythology, music, history (especially modern history) and Art Nouveau architecture. And food…lots of food. I had a nice, two year long ’detour’ in Barcelona, where I perfected my Spanish. In 2012 I…
I'm a 3rd generation" Budapester" :) I have always loved spending a couple of hours on the Margaret Island or taking a nice walk up to one of our "hills". :) I finished the licensed guide course in 2008 and almost immediately I started working as a tour guide - in Turkey, where I spent 3 summer seasons. In the wintertime I traveled back to my beloved city, Budapest, and provided guided tours by bus. Almost 3 years ago I decided to fully dedicate my life to guiding. I really do enjoy walking everywhere and every time, so why not…
I am a licensed guide, a very lucky one as my job is still my passion – even after years of guiding in the city. I would like to show you this city and Hungary through a real Hungarian’s eyes. Where the streets tell you stories about the past, where you can bump into amazing buildings on every corner, where there is always something interesting going on. I don’t want to show you a city: I want to show you the place where I live. Hungary is a lot more than goulash, and Budapest is a lot more than just…
I am the guide, who didn’t want to be a guide. I’ve finished guiding school and still wasn’t interested in the job. But one day – Whoa! – I became a tour guide. And I loved it! If you are looking for a guide who is funny, amusing, and whose tours are not similar to any other guides’ tours then you are definitely looking for me!
Budapest is a special place, the colors and shapes are diverse, like a basket of summer fruits. Every piece is unique and different – it always surprises me with something. You have to be curious and brave to taste it all… I love walking through the hills of Buda, breathing in the fresh essence of the river Danube on the warm breeze. I like discovering the sculptures and statues, having a nap in the parks and seeing all the different opportunities Budapest has to offer to make people smile every day. Love Budapest, and Budapest will love you back even…
