Private tour guide Andras

Andras V.

Verőce, Hungary

Welcome to Hungary! My name is Andras and I would be delighted to show you around in my country and share some unique experience with you.

If you like a bit of history, some urban and other legends, a bit of humor along the way, we will have a great time together.
I grew up in a small Hungarian town south of the capital and moved to Budapest when I was fourteen. It had changed my life greatly and I learned to appreciate both country and city life. Today I live in a small town half an hour away north from Budapest along river Danube, which makes a perfect combination of the two environments and allows me to authentically introduce you the urban and rural parts of Hungary. I used to work as a teacher but when I started to work as a guide part-time, I just couldn't turn back and I became a full-time licensed guide in 2013 and love it ever since.
Let me take you on a private tour either in Budapest or in the nearby areas to weave our way through the most picturesque, special places and let me show you my country from a more personal point of view. I am offering various tours ranging from classical tours such as visiting the most iconic and memorial sites to special tours like wine in the city.
My listed tours offer suggested itineraries, but I am happy to customize a tour just for you! We'll have a lot of fun. I can't wait for you to visit!
