Hello! I'm Bori, a native from Budapest. I lived 6 years away from my hometown but I have returned and I really love to explore Budapest and show it to people from around the world. Not just because I love to meet people from everywhere, but this way I can also be e bit of an explorer as well in my own beautiful city. I really enjoy to make it easier to fellow travellers to discover the city on a special way, avoid tourist traps and boring stuff. I studied to be an artist and I am a street photographer. I think instant photography is a great way to take pictures and make some art on a travel. I attended a tour guide school recently, so now I have the official tour guide licence, which is a must in Hungary to be an official tour guide.

Description

Capture Budapest with a vintage Polaroid camera while walking its streets and discovering its sights!

I’ll loan you a camera for the duration of the tour and provide one pack of Polaroid Originals instant film (8 pictures) worth of €21.

During the tour we’ll explore the inner areas, where you’ll have the chance to capture amazing buildings and places such as the Parliament, the Saint Stephen Basilica, the river Danube, Elizabeth Square, the Chain Bridge, and beauties of the 5th and 7th districts.

We’ll hit some paths that are less touristy so you can see Budapest’s other magical faces, which most visitors sadly miss.

At the start of the tour I’ll give an introduction to instant photography. We’ll take our time so everyone is able to take the best possible shots from the best perspectives. I’ll be happy to take some photos of you as well!

Amazing!
Bori was an amazing guide, really chatty and informative, she showed us how to use the poloroid cameras and brought us to some really beautiful places to take some pictures. There was 3 of us and we all enjoyed it. I cannot recommend this tour enough!
Brilliant unique tour
Bori was a fantastic guide, friendly and great to chat to. She showed us around all of the main sights around the city, pointing out potential photo spots and helping us use the cameras. As it was just myself and my boyfriend we enjoyed a personalised tour, but I'm sure larger groups would enjoy it too! As a result, we have some great mementos unique to us, and it was the perfect introduction to a wonderful city. We would recommend this tour (or any of Bori's work) to anyone!
Great!
Bori was a fantastic guide and I can highly recommend her.
