About Photo Tours in Hungary by Miklos Mayer
Personal photography tours in Budapest organised by a local landscape photographer. I guide you to great photo spots at the best time. And I show you how to set your camera properly to achieve professional results. The tours usually start around sunset, so we can get to the spots by the time "Blue Hour" begins. Then we continue taking pictures at night using a tripod. Don't worry if you don't have one, you can use mine :)

I am quite often in Budapest and I thought I know already all the good places to take nightshots. That was until I met Miklos. Friendly, full of passion for this city and for his clients, with a lot of knowledge how and where to take good photos - to make it short: you will miss something, if you miss a tour with marvelous Miklos.

I am very new to photography and have a camera that has way more features than I am experienced/knowledgeable at using. However, I do travel plenty and love to take advantage to develop my photography skills whenever I can. Miklós definitely was the perfect fit for what I was looking for in a photography tour guide in Budapest. He also made sure that my (non-photographer) partner enjoyed himself as well by discussing history and culture in Hungary. We started with the food tour, which you should definitely do! We had eaten at several restaurants during our trip but had not been to the places Miklós took us. Then we set out on the photography tour. Miklós was also kind enough to lend me the use of his tripod, as my suitcase did not have enough room to pack one. It was a very cold evening, so we did a mix of walking and taking taxis. I am very glad Miklós arranged these, as I had heard stories of unethical cab drivers in Budapest, so it was good to not have to worry about that. Miklós was really patient with me, showing me features on my camera that I did not even know it had... definitely making my future endeavors with this camera much easier. He also knew the best spots to take photos. Lastly, weather was really variable the week we visited, and Miklós was really helpful and gave options of different days to reschedule when the day we had originally planned on turned out to be foggy/rainy. My partner and I had built in an extra day in case anything needed to be rescheduled, so we were able to move things around and make our photography/food tour for another day. We are already planning another trip to Budapest in a couple years and will definitely reach out to Miklós for another tour. We had a wonderful time and he made everything fun and easy.

If you are looking for some of the best night (long exposure) compositions of beauitful Budapest with a friendly, insightful (budapest history and photography) then I highly recommend Miklos. In fact when I uploaded the photos onto Intstagram I never received so many likes.

Miklos is very friendly, patient, affable, and speaks very good English. So, our tour was awesome! We started with the food tour and then moved directly into the evening photo tour. Since I had the newest model of a Sony, we both discovered a few interesting features about the camera that evening. The stops we made on the tour certainly set me up for some great shots. Miklos also saved the day when my tripod mount decided it wanted to bounce into the Danube for eternity. When that happened, he loaned me his "L" bracket. Everything worked out splendidly and thankfully, Miklos was well prepared beyond just having places to visit. Given the tour was a few days before Christmas and it was a bit chilly outside (an understatement) having him along to show the way was not only a blessing, it was crucial. I am beyond pleased with the photos too. Here's the thing though, even if someone is not a photographer with a great camera, I still would recommend Miklos as a tour guide. Even my iPhone pics that I snapped along the way came out wonderfully. If someone would ask me today if they should take the tour with Miklos in Budapest, I would simply reply, "If he's available and you don't us him as a guide, you're nuts!" We wholeheartedly recommend Miklos in Hungary.
