Our Story

Kult-Turist is a DMC (Destination Management Company) based in Budapest, Hungary, organizing tailor-made cultural and educational programs in Central Europe and the Balkans. Over the last 30 years we organized and operated hundreds of tours, all of which were special for some reason. Just to mention a few from our past: U.S. architects studied Central European architecture, including meeting local professionals like Imre Makovecz; Finnish botanists studied the flora in Hungary; Japanese folk dancers learned local dancing traditions and performed on folk festivals; musicians from New Zealand got hands on experience on Central European folk music traditions.
We organize over 30 programs per year in Central Europe and the Balkans for Road Scholar, one of the biggest educational program provider in the USA.
We also organized many international conferences most of them were connected to the cultural fields. Each conference is unique and we make it even more unique by adding on a thematic walk or tour, connected to the subject of the conference.


The Book

To celebrate our 30th anniversary Mr. László Szále a well established Hungarian journalist wrote a book of our story. It is an interview book, which includes personal stories of the most important actors of the first 30 years of our history.
The book is only available in Hungarian at the moment, but we hope to publish an abbreviated English version soon.

JoAnn Bell and Maeve Harney

Vice Presidents, Road Scholar Inc.

“We began working with Kult-Turist in 1987. We have been delighted by our shared dedication to providing learning opportunities that broaden horizons, deepen perspectives, and generate understanding among people from different parts of the world.”


Annamaria Sas and Krisztina Kováts

Program Officers, Fulbright Commission, Hungary

“We have had the pleasure working with Eva Borsos and her team in the past 10 years. It has always been a fantastic collaboration, we love the helpfulness and problem solving attitude of Eva and her entire team. We highly recommend them.”


Adelia Pope

Director, Regional Programs, Road Scholar

“It is my experience that Kult Turist approaches its work with outstanding dedication and care. From program development all the way through to operation, Kult Turist goes to great lengths to truly understand the needs of Road Scholar participants and to provide high quality educational services. Their team is incredibly responsive and a pleasure to work with.”


Sándor Kopátsy

Prominent Hungarian Economist

“Why do I love Kult-Turist? Because I like its owner and also the way he is working. When we’d met in the Bakony, soon he became an enthusiastic supporter of children in state custody. His hotels are like families. In him I found an entrepreneur for whom bringing happiness into one’s life is more important than money.”


István Monok

University professor, Doctor of Academy of Science, Director General of the Library of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences

“Kult-Turist has established ties with cultural and scientific institutions in such a way that it can easily meet demands of various kind. Demands ranging from the desire to get a quick snapshot of an issue, to discover a local lifestyle, or to receive scientific knowledge. In many respect, the company relies on the knowledge of its liaison partners and refrains from direct interpretation of what is offered to its guests and clients.”


Béla Pásztor

Mayor, Veresegyház

“Our city entrusted Kult-Turist-ITH with organization of domestic and international tours. The work of István Király and his colleagues can be characterized by trustworthiness and punctuality. If we organized similar tours, we would gladly cooperate with Kult-Turist in the future.”
