About Me! Hi, I have been working as a professional canoe guide for 21 years now, I have guided canoers from 54 countries, several thousands of them. This is my passion: Nature, rivers, camping and good company. I love travelling, languages, reading, learning about myself, I have a family: son (9), daughter (3 months) and a wife (secret), we live in Budapest, although returned from living in Spain one year ago. People usually say I am a good leader, I care about needs and emotions likewise, I am said to be a good organizer. Actually, I executed the First Hungarian Mekong Expedition all alone in 2006. I really love adventures... I also hosted the annual CouchSurfing canoeing trip for 15 years. Lived in New Zealand and Japan. I am also a qualified karate trainer/coach and author of 2 books.

We will camp at 2 designated campsites with toilet, running water, etc. These are beautiful places just by the river. with comfortable places to lay your tent. You can watch the 5 billion stars, listen to the Danube, the most international, fabulous river of the world. You can bring your own camping gear or rent from me on low price. Any questions about the trip? You can let me know in the Q&A section!
