BUDAPEST, HUNGARY, Hungary

"Discovery consists of looking at the same thing as everyone else and thinking something different. " Albert Szent-Györgyi* Hello!

Just a little bit about me:
When I was a child I wanted to be an adventuress exploring interesting and beautiful places, or even strange new worlds. I dreamed of being an architect unearthing hidden artefacts and forgotten treasures and finding answers to all the questions of humanity.
When I grew up I found a whole new sense of discovery, the sharing of ideas, history, values, meaning, perspectives, the ways in which people from all over the world connect and yet are seemingly very different because of where they are from.
Travel has always given me new ways of seeing things filling me with a buzz of inspiration.
When I meet new people and guide them around my fascinating city or beyond, I want them to relate to the experience, get an understanding of what the place is about and what the people are really like. My hope is that by the time they leave I'll have helped make the place feel a little less 'foreign' to them.

Whatever brings you to Hungary, I would be happy to be your guide, and help you make the most of your time.
I was born and raised in Hungary, I live in Budapest at the moment and I have been working as a professionally qualified and licensed tour guide for four years. I love my country, and I love my job.
Whether you come alone, with a partner, with friends or family. it's fine with me. My oldest customer thus far was 88 years old and my youngest 8 months.
All tours are tailored to your needs; we can walk all day, half a day, or enjoy the sights using a comfortable minivan or bus. If you are a Disabled person please contact me, and I am sure we will find a suitable tour for you.

A Recent Review of this guide

Great tour and knowledable guide. We had booked 2 half day walking tours of Budapest with Andrea and she did not only give us the highlights of the city, but also was able to give us deeper information about each site. We enjoyed her deep knowledge and company.
