From Budapest with love, introducing Nellicious Travels!

Nelly Hajba’s passion is travelling and food, she became quite a jet-setter living half of her life abroad, studying and working in 7 different countries on 3 continents. However she turned her passion into a career by moving back to Hungary to rediscover the Motherland and shortly established Nellicious Travels. Her experience in re-exploring Budapest not only gives you a great knowledge, but her enthusiastic and cheerful personality makes you feel like you are walking around the city with a friend, discovering the several faces of this amazing destination, while mingling with the locals.

“Food can be just so delicious, if you know what and where and how to eat.” Nelli says, she also believes that through a nation’s cuisine, you can learn additionally a lot about the culture, history and mentality and characteristics of the country. Her tours are based on food and tastings, from discovering the vibe of a market to tickling your tastebuds with key flavours of the Hungarian cuisine. You can find the tours by clicking HERE. The tours are offered by local foodies to similar-minded travellers, who wish to experience the flavours of a certain area they are visiting and wish to be accompanied by an enthusiastic local host, to learn about traditional and modern local cuisine, tastes and flavours and through this about the mentality, culture, and history of the nation and hear about the local life and personal experiences. The local hosts are selected very cautiously to ensure a safe and trustworthy experience, meet the guides by clicking HERE.
