Nora – Your personal guide
I am coming from the Hungarian paprika and salami region of Szeged, where I grew up in a cooking obsessed family, and learned how to cook at an early age. Food was (and still is) an important topic among us. My passion for food and hotels led me to hold a degree now in hotel and restaurant management. I am also a certified cook and a tour guide. I have spent some time living in the USA and Argentina, where I loved to introduce the Hungarian cuisine to my foreign friends.
Over the past 15 years I have immersed myself in several topics about Budapest: art, architecture, design, gastronomy, and really enjoy showing people the constantly changing faces of the city.
Besides guiding, I manage apartments for tourists in Budapest. My spare time is full of cooking for family and friends, shopping markets, trying the culinary delights of Budapest and other countries I am visiting, and learning about food!
Being a passionate traveller and a culinary enthusiast I would be happy to share my love for food and discoveries with you.

Gyuri’s passion for wine started about 9 years ago, when merging his resources with a friend, they started to import Italian wines to Hungary. Keen on learning more about wines and wine growing he started to take sommelier courses, first in Hungary, and later in the United Kingdom.
