Hi! My name is Sándor, currently a business university student, but a massive enthusiast of history and the city itself. I spent most of my life in Budapest, my birthplace. It is a pleasure for me to guide you around certain locations of the city, highlighting the history behind almost every corner. Even if you are not a fan of history itself, my tours could be interesting for you:) I try to make my tours both interesting and informative simultaneously. I hope my enthusiasm is worthwhile!

The bridges tour with Sándor was the best out of the 4 tours I did in Budapest. He took us to see amazing views, hidden spots that I would’ve never found by myself . It was a perfect combination of information about the history and architecture of the bridges, with some personal touches that you can only get from a true local. Highly recommend! Thanks for the tour, Sándor!
