About Tour Guide Pieter B.

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.

Important

I can guide you throughout Hungary, This can be either me traveling to you (transport costs etc. to be paid), or, guided tours with transport included.

Breakout 1945: The End of the Siege of Budapest

Budapest
3 hours 40 min

It is Feb. 1945, the Siege of Budapest is reaching its dramatic finale. One desperate act remains: The Breakout. This walk will take you to Feb. 11th 1945, with events and locations brought to life. Up until late 1944, Budapest had remained largely unscathed. This was to change with Soviet and Axis forces fighting to the last man. Casualties in the hundreds of thousands and 20% of the City destroyed, this walk will bring to life the final days where 40,000 Axis soldiers try to break the siege.

Budapest - Coffee, Conversation and some Hidden City

Budapest
3 hours 30 min

There are not many foreigners who understand Hungary, and Hungarians, better than myself. This tour is for those with an inquisitive nature, who enjoy stimulating conversation, who don't want to be constrained by a tour itinerary. This is an open forum, within a framework of interesting places to visit, to move the conversation along. Including a hidden place of peace, a beautiful garden, and with a special view of the city. Along the way, we will have coffee in a genuine Socialist Presszó,

Pieter is a very experienced guide with a knowledge spanning all topics of interest you may have ....and beyond. He is flexible, personable and a pleasure to be with. I can highly recommend Pieter to any visitor to Budapest

Laurent  A.

Thank you Laurent and Alexa, it was a pleasure to spend those hours in conversation with two people genuinely interested in Hungary and its heritage. And thankfully, the weather was great for the time of year. We covered a lot of ground both historically and physically :) Hopefully you get that chance to see the Balaton and Pécs on a future visit. Best wishes, Pieter

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.
