Our History

The roots of Alpha Travel go back to the time when Denes sold daily tours and excursions on the famous Vaci Street in Budapest. Even then, he dreamed of having his own business that would welcome all travelers who wanted to get to know his country better.

Denes Danko was born in Yugoslavia, grew up in what is now Serbia, spent his summers by the beautiful Croatian sea, his winters in the adventurous Slovenian mountains, loved the famous food burek and cevapcici from Bosnia and Herzegovina, enjoyed the superbly prepared ajvar from Macedonia and went on school trips to Montenegro. He always wished that other people could see all the treasures that the Balkans had to offer.
As a Hungarian at heart and with his nationality, he also always felt the need to show how worth seeing and experiencing the region Southeast Europe is.

Having been in tourism for almost 20 years, the journey from tour guide to tour operator owner was long but fruitful. Many trips and tours have been organized, many people, travelers and guests have been served and many lessons have been learned.

In 2014 the time finally came and Denes opened the door to his own company Alpha Hungary, which after two years, in 2016, became Alpha Travel SEE covering the mentioned countries in South East.

2020 was a year when tourism as an industry suddenly disappeared. This had a big impact on participants worldwide.

Alpha Travel - Denes and Lidia, who had joined forces after 20 years of multinational marketing experience, decided to add another brand: Alpha Marketing. As life partners who both love to travel and learn about new places, they found the connection through their passion for travel and the marketing business. Perhaps not an everyday combination, but in fact they complement each other perfectly - both personally and professionally. Their love for travel has remained, and their love for marketing grows every day.

Lidia Jurisich brings creativity, organizational skills, structured thinking and a drive for results and success. While working for a multinational company, she has mentored and coached many and led her marketing team to global recognition and awards for best projects and achievements. Although she learned traditional marketing, she is well versed in digital and social media marketing. One of her goals is to help small businesses, startups or entrepreneurs in the area SEE who do not know where to start.

She has organized over 100 events ranging from small group events, local and regional conferences, executive business meetings and incentive trips to team building adventures. Her goal with the events is to foster collaboration with various stakeholders in the region.
