It's an easy bike tour on an island in the Danube, close to Budapest. We'll start the tour in Göd, you can come with your own bike or rent a bike there. We'll take the ferry to the island.

The Danube Bend is one of our favourite areas in Hungary. Stunning nature, full of history and culture, close to Budapest, but a very different experience. Most bus tours visit the right bank of the river, Esztergom and Visegrád. Although we agree that the Castle of Visegrád and the Cathedral of Esz...

Just a few months after our study tour, we returned to the Zemplén Mountains. This time all was covered by fresh snow and we were extremely lucky to have sunshine and a bright blue sky in January.

French toast, scrambled eggs and a cup of invigorating green tea was exactly what we needed before starting our hike in Telkibánya, a village surrounded by the Zemplén Mountains, close to the Slovakian border...

Having worked in tourism all my life, I was lucky to participate in numerous study tours, all around the world. However, the most special invitation arrived from ABA Turisztikai Egyesület (ABA Touristic Association) at the end of October, as they invited us for a study tour to my hometown and its...

The alarm clock went off at 7 am, it was a sleepy Sunday morning. I looked out the window. The fog was so thick I could hardly see our garden. I would have loved to go back under the warm blanket, but we had work to do, our group of about 20 people was waiting for us in Szentendre. So we dressed up...
