About Amphora

Sandor Cheizoo started in 1991 as a coach driver / tourmanager in tourism and was working during the winter season in Austria. In 1996 he started to become more independent and he set up a company in wine and culture tours through Europe. The combination of the city of Salzburg, the beautiful nature and the possibilities for winter sports made Austria the perfect place for Sandor. In 2001 he decided to settle here. Around 2003, Amphora was founded. The company has been around for more than 10 years and Sandor and his team are familiar faces for many travelers. Sandor still organises cultural tours starting in Austria and the Netherlands, is a Dutch certified city guide for Salzburg and Austria. Sandor's travels and city walks are characterised by his ever-present enthusiasm and the amount of knowledge he shares with his audience.
