Balint T.

Budapest, Hungary

#DRIVER-GUIDE# Let me start with a quick question: do you also feel more special, safe and fulfilled when you are visiting a caring friend abroad then when you simply join a group tour?

I definitely do so. I think we both agree on that being a „tourist" or being a „guest" are as different as chalk and cheese. My passion is to turn your vacation into a relaxing and inspiring experience seasoned with fun and topped with humor. I believe that your precious time in Hungary should be all about you and your needs, benefiting the most from the good vibes that you are going to meet here.

"Not all those who wander are lost. " (J. R. R. Tolkien) - Let's make it that way, shall we? :)

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Bálint (37), I was born and raised in Budapest and I am a full-time, licenced tour guide of Hungary. I have 14 years of experience in showing my beloved city to guests from all around the world with enthusiasm, giving an insight to the everyday life and mindset of Hungarians while providing entertaining information on the famous sights and fun stories about the little known gems.

Discovering Budapest with a local guide and private car allows you flexibility, access, and interaction not possible with group tours. See the major sites and understand fully their cultural and historical significance. Having a private car allows you to see and embrace the Budapest that exists off of the beaten track. Your exclusive interaction with your guide will insure that you see the city through local eyes. Having this private experience allows you to tailor your excursion focusing on what is important to you, maximizing your opportunity to explore and understand magnificent Budapest.

"Travel is the only thing you buy, that makes you richer. " - as the proverb says

Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Or doubts. :)
