The best guide you can imagine. I hiked the Moanalua Valley trail to the Haiku Stairs with him today and it was an unforgettable experience. Besides his in depth hiking and regional knowledge, he will really make sure about your safety and also take amazing pictures of your trip. He's also a great and nice guy with cool stories to tell and can give you valuable advice for your further travels. When I come back one day I will definitely seek him again ! Thank you More...

An amazing, friendly and knowledgeable guide that made the whole experience really memorable. He was very prompt in his replies and accommodating to our needs during the summit hike. His photography skills are awesome. Very professional - would definitely seek him again when we come back to Honolulu! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! More...

Highly recommend! On our second Hawaiian vacation, we decided to do our backetlist trail, on Haiku. We choose a tourguide for this, he was Nandor. He is friendly, and his high hiking experiences and skills helped us a lot during the tour. He was very patient, funny, and took breathtaking fotos. Thank you Nandor, next time we choose you again!

Highly recommend!! I would have stopped and turned back a few times on some challenging spots on the hike. But with the help of our guide Nandor I made it all the way and that was a memory for a life time! I'm recommending him to all my friends. More...

I came to Oahu solo, keen to do some mountainous/ridge hikes with an experienced hiker and found Hungaro Explorer via Google. The website looked professional and I liked how Nandor offers custom hikes - as that’s what I chose to utilise.Nandor was always prompt with his electronic replies, was accomodating to my hike requests, was able to pick me up from Waikiki, and was able to cater to my skill level. I chose to do 2 hikes with him and after my first hike, he assessed my capabilities as being greater than I expected, so I found myself completing an advanced climb that I would have been too scared to try alone.Nandor is knowledgeable and friendly. He will tell you about the plants and attractions you see in your hikes and recommend the best vantage points for photographs - including taking and sending you some professional photos for free. He can recommend other hikes for you to try alone too. He’s a climber as well, so if you’re a climber, like me, you’ll have some great conversations about that topic. And as a bonus to make you feel ultra safe, he volunteers in search and rescue and you can tell from conversations that he really knows his stuff.I highly recommend him and will certainly contact him again for more hikes the next time I am in Oahu. Mahalo Nandor! More...

Nandor is Second to None, If You Are Looking for a Guide to Explore Oahu—Tom Lopez, author of Idaho: A Climbing Guide Oahu is an amazing island with a terrain and environment unlike anything in the contiguous 48 states. There are many easy to reach destinations but it is the hard to reach spots that make hiking on the island special. No matter how experienced of a mainland hiker or climber one is, exploring the Oahu wilds will not only test your abilities but will also throw unforeseen road blocks in your path. If you want to explore Oahu’s hidden water falls, untrammeled backcountry or challenging ridges leading to the island’s high peaks I recommend that you contact Nandor Szotak. Nandor is a highly competent guide who knows the island’s many eccentricities, like complicated access issues, dangerous and exhilarating ridges and schizophrenic weather patterns, which most often confront and deter mainlanders in their quest to explore remote areas. Taking a trip with him will get you away from the crowds and give you a unique experience that you will never forget. Nandor is engaging, knowledgeable and, perhaps, the most unpretentiousness climbing guide you will ever meet. Simply put, he is outstanding. More...

An amazing adventure I will never forget. Nandor is a wonderful, confident guide and we had a very energetic and challenging hike, with waterfalls, ropes and lots of climbing. It was fantastic and definitely something different/away from the the usual tourist spots. At first I did not believe him when he pointed to a waterfall to explain we would be climbing UP it :). Would definitely go again. Thank you! More...

What an amazing experience! My wife an I had an incredible day with Nandor, We chose the 3 waterfalls hike and were no disappointed. Walking through the beautiful valley then up the waterfalls and along the crater ridge was truly a unique experience. it has been our 3rd trip to Hawaii and has been hands down the best activity we have done on the island. Next visit Nandor you will have to take us out again looking forward to seeing the other hikes you mentioned! BIg Thank you for a great day! More...

Nandor is beyond exceptional! He completely exceeded our expectations in a tour guide! He is truly a genuine person that is EXTREMELY Informative on not only the trails but the native habitat. He is so friendly and easily holds a conversation which makes a hike so much more enjoyable. He made our Oahu trip one we will never forget and a once in a lifetime experience! If you are on the fence about hiring a tour guide, DON'T BE! He is so worth every penny!!! More...

Me and my husband wanted our Hawaiian wedding to be an ordinary memory - we wanted the wonderful nature of Hawaii to appear as much as possible. We knew that Nándor would be our greatest help. He has a lot of experience, and hiking is not only his work, this is his hobby too, and he is also a very talented photographer. We spent our day in a friendly atmosphere, we laughed a lot. It was an unforgettable experience.He showed us many beautiful places, local attractions, talked about Hawaii wildlife and even shared some interesting Hawaiian legends with us.Nandor is patient, helpful, and the most delightful tourist guide I've ever met!

My recent visit to Hawaii was an unforgettable experience due solely to my guided adventure up Moanalua Middle with Hungaro Explorer. Nandor was a great bloke and extremely knowledgeable. He organised everything I needed to make it to the top and have great time. I will certainly book another Oahu adventure with him on my next visit.10/10! More...

Nandor es un gran fotógrafo de la belleza natural, con su sensibilidad como artista y su fuerza e inquietud por descubrir lugares nuevos te acompañará a lugares maravillosos, tus ojos y tu corazón se llenarán de naturaleza en estado puro.

Kedves Barátunk, Nándi! Köszönjük Neked életünk legvidámabb, legkalandosabb jurassic parkos túráját és az extrém fotózást. Köszönjük azt, hogy velünk töltötted azt a napot, kedves, humoros voltál. úgy alakítottad, hogy az igényeinket maximálisan kielégítsd. Volt benne nehéz túra, könnyű óceánparti séta a secret beachen, egy két olyan kilátó ahonnan százszor szebb volt a kilátás és nem lógott bele egy turista sem a képekbe mivel egy sem volt ott , mert maga az odajutás is csak olyan túravezetővel lehetséges, aki ismeri a sziget minden rejtett kincsét! Láthattuk az óceán ezernyi kék színét olyan magasságokból, ami keveseknek adatik meg. Minden helyen volt egy vicces vagy érdekes sztorid vagy épp történelmi, amitől még érdekesebb és teljesebb volt a napunk és így jobban kötődünk ezután a helyekhez ahol jártunk. De ami a legjobb volt ,hogy a nap úgy telt Veled mintha már évek óta barátok lettünk volna és a nap végén még elvittél minket egy félig meddig egy turisták által még annyira nem felfedezett beach-re, ahol próbáltál minket tanítani ,hogyan kell meglovagolni a hullámokat a sekélyebb vízben, de sajnos az idő rövidsége vagy a mi bénaságunk miatt nem sikerült megtanulni  Még egyszer köszönünk Neked mindent és reméljük, hogy sok közös kalandban lesz még részünk!!! Mahalo More...

Top of Stairway to Heaven has been on our bucket list for a long time. There is no way we could have done it without Nandor. He took care of all the details so we could enjoy the incredible beauty this hike has to offer. From transport, supplying equipment, carrying gear to finding the trails & shooting an amazing video of our adventure. The whole experience was a highlight from start to finish. If you want to hike in Hawaii - Nandor is your guy! More...

I was never a person into sports and an avid hiker. For me, it is not just about getting to the peak, it is about enjoying the environment. It is why I always struggle going hiking with people with a lot of experience..... Choosing Nandor as our guide was one of the best decisions we could made when we hike Upper Yosemite Falls. It was a really long hike with a big elevation and the sun was hitting our head for many hours. I got dehydrated and I wanted to give up. However, Nandor was always supporting me along the way and his great mountaineering skills help me going through and finish the hike. I definitely recommend Nandor as you guide for a hike if you go to Oahu. More...

I just arrived back home after spending more than 2 weeks visiting some islands in Hawaii. O’ahu was one of my favorite ones. Thanks to Hungaro Explorer I was able to have my first contact with the island, being at the end the most beautiful/excited experiences I had during the whole trip. In about 6 hours hiking we were able to surmount more than 2 summits, climb several steeped hills, pass by incredible lookouts in the top of green cliffs over the Pacific Ocean, climb 2 waterfalls and finally, to make even better, wash out our muddy clothes under a huge waterfall.
Nandor, thanks a lot for your guidance in this incredible experience, to make everything easier during the hike and for making those incredible pictures and video. I will recommend it to all my friends.
Thanks!!

We had a fantastic day in Oahu with Nandor. It was amazing to see, how much hidden ways and sightseeing points he knows. We were hiking in places, where we were completely alone, in the mountains, and also in secret beaches. We are not a professional hikers, so it was a positive suprise, that we found ways, which fits perfectly to our needs. We had our lunch at a local food truck, which I would never choose (it doesn't looked like a good place), but it was delicious and very authentic.
We can recomend Nandor to everyone, who is looking for places in Oahu, which are not so well known, but therefore really beautiful.

We spent 2 unforgettable weeks in Hawaii, Oahu. We would like to take the opportunity to say special thanks to Hungaro-Explorers, to Peti and Nándi who, with their helpfulness & friendliness, made a great contribution to our amazing vacation. With Nándi's guide, we took an unforgettable jungle tour through beautiful natural attractions, with lots of things to do and see in Hawaii. With Peti's invaluable advice, we were able to crawl almost the whole island on budget. It was a great experience! More...

I spent one week in the beautiful O’ahu. One day I wanted to do something different, and I signed up for a hike with Nandor aka Hungaro Explorer. I had a beautiful adventure, I have seen some amazing landscapes from the jungle to green mountains with great views. Nandor was taking care of everything, told me a lot about Hawaii, local palnts and trees. Was an amazing experience!
On top of that I got beautiful pictures and a video about my hiking adventure. If you ever want to do something different while you are on O’ahu, Hungaro Explorer is your best bet!�

Nandor is an exceptional guide and his tour services will offer you something different than the mainstream tours. I searched for weeks to find someone who would take me around O’ahu as I was there on a work trip with very limited time. Nandor came and picked me up a couple of mornings to go out hiking to some beautiful spots - away from all the crowds. He was so patient, will tailor your experience to suit you and is an all round, genuinely nice guy! I will definitely be contacting Nandor when I return! Thanks so much �� More...

I love hiking and being in contact with nature and my dream of exploring Hawaii, discover amazing landscapes and having some rest in one of the beautiful waterfalls finally came true. This fantastic experience was even better thanks to Nandor. Whit his guidance and expertise we reached places that I didn’t even know, secret beaches and great local places in O’ahu that made the experience more authentic and fun. Even more! he is a professional photographer who captured all these moments in astonishing pictures and videos. I really enjoyed hiking and talking about photography with him and I definitely recommend Hungaro Explorer to anyone who wants to experience a great adventure. Vero More...

Genuine, authentic, patient and knowledgable and totally keen to deliver you a unique experience - tailor made for you! He's an experienced hiker, and an awesome photographer - so not only will you get an awesome hike, but he'll take the best pictures to up your Insta game! Thanks Nandor - you're simply the best!

Our family of four, with two teenage boys, loves hiking in our home in the Pacific Northwest, but we had a once-in-a-lifetime experience on our three waterfall hike with Hungaro Explorer. Nandor is uniquely talented for the work he has chosen, and he led our group with knowledge, confidence, grace, and humor. The hike was quite difficult, but we felt fully supported, and completely satisfied by the end of the day. The experience was further heightened when we received the beautiful photos and video within a couple of days after our hike. I'm a frugal person, but I would have paid twice as much for our adventure. More...

Let's just say that I am not an avid hiker!For me it is not just to get to the peak, it is about enjoying the environment! Choosing Hungaro Explorer as our guide was one of the best decision when hiked to three waterfalls here in Oahu. The guide, Nandor had all kind of hiking accessories to help us stay on the trail safe. We got information about local planta and trees, Hawaiian names of the surrounding mountains. We had a great time enjoying those waterfalls! The best is that he captured the best moments of the day on video compilation, so we could rewatch the adventure home.Thank you Hungaro Explorer for such a great experience! More...
