Hi! My name is Kristóf (Hungarian for Christopher), I'm a certified tour guide living in Budapest. I became a guide as it allows me to combine my long lasting interests in storytelling and architecture. As a guide I really enjoy finding and telling intriguing stories or curiosities that can be tied in with the location. Such stories are a great way to connect the built environment to the community that inhabits it, or provide an insight to its cultural and historical context. The city has a long history living through different ages, and I hope, that together we can take a peek into the life of a long gone era.

I'm a Brit who has lived in Hungary for 32 years. This "island" nation of Hungary is my home. I speak the language. My affection for this country, plus my ability to step outside, allows me to give unique views and perspectives to guests. The feedback I receive from guests, even from Hungarians themselves, is universally positive, as I try explain Hungary as it was, and as it is. Note: I am a qualified Hungarian tour guide.

I am an official Budapest tour guide, with a very personable approach, and a deep love for this city! My life revolves around Budapest, which is my passion, my job, and my source of inspiration since 2008, when I moved here from Italy. I started tour guiding after many years of writing about Budapest, and about Hungary, as a journalist, which is my other carrier, and passion. I love sharing the city with my guests, putting together history, culture, hidden spots, and cool places that make Budapest unforgettable. My specialty is Art Nouveau architecture.

If you prefer conversational type of guiding, your company is profoundly welcome here. Discussion is insisted! I am curious of your views and considerations. Hidden parts of Budapest are still unique and more relaxed than tourist trap areas. My tours focus on these areas of the city. My shortlisted experiences are wine tasting, history of WWII and Cold War/Communism, local cafés, sailing, canoeing, English language history not to mention hosting experiences. My school background is Master of Business Administration in the UK, wine maker, grape grower, sailor, radio operator, English linguistics, software developer. Spending my free time with free traveling in the Balkans.

I am a passionate local tour guide based in Budapest. I specialize in small group walking tours and tailor-made private tours, all conducted in English. My mission is to reveal the lesser-known gems of Budapest to travelers who are eager to explore beyond the city's main tourist attractions. My passions are the fantastic street art scene of the city, small galleries and design shops, architecture, and history.

Hello, Join me for a tour and look at sights through my eyes and explore with a local. I live in Budapest and have been working as a licenced local guide for about 10 years. I have a University educational background, I did my studies in Hungary and then worked as an intern in the United States for a year and a half. Hungary is a tiny little country but it has got several attractive cities, towns and natural wonders. Besides Budapest, I really like to work around Lake Balaton, in the Danube bend including Szentendre. I have had tourists almost from all over the world so far. Come with me and discover the secrets and beauties of Budapest during a four- hour sightseeing tour. Taking in all of the principal sights, my fascinating route takes you through the most famous and interesting parts of the city. In my spare time I like doing sports like cycling, skiing, hiking and I regulary take part in sailing compatitions. So if you are tired of walking and looking for challenges there is another option to explore the city by bike with the help of the public bike sharing system called Bubi.

First class tour

Pieter did an outstanding job guiding the Budapest 1945 siege breakout tour for my brother and I on this largely forgotten a/o inexplicably ignored topic. He had absolute command of the subject. Particularly good were the photos he downloaded from Hungarian National Archives, showing then and now vantage points. Really brought the events to life. Sprinkled the tour with survivors’ anecdotes. Highly recommend the tour for anyone interested in the topic. Well done.

Gabriella was Fantastic Guide

Gabrielle picked us up at the appointed time. She made our tour flawless guiding us on the trams and subways to see all the sights we wanted. She gave us background info, but not too much to absorb. She was pleasant and made us feel like very special guests. Her love for Budapest is obvious! Terrific tour guide!
