Hungarian food & wine make this a must-do tour!
studiofolio
, Jan 2020
Be sure to bring our appetite to this tour! Our tour began with cakes and coffee in Central Café, which gave us a glimpse into the café culture of 19th-century Budapest. Then, we went to a ruin bar, a defining feature of 21st-century Budapest, to sample the foods available in a local market. Next, we had delicious everyday Hungarian food at a local restaurant. Finally, we ended the tour with a tasting of Hungarian wines (spoiler alert: they were delicious). Our guide, Daniel, was a wonderful host. His enthusiasm and knowledge of food, cooking, history and wine made this tour thoroughly enjoyable. Wine lovers, food lovers and anyone interested in learning more about Budapest should choose this tour.

The guide was knowledgable but not interesting. He had little enthusiasm for the subject matter. He walked way ahead of the slowest in our group of six and never initiated any conversation. I would not recommend this tour.

This was a lovely tour, guided by the charming Ezter, and I do recommend it. I am sure that the tour through the large Central Market is great too, but this tour was intimate and unusual, and introduced me to places I have returned to many times while in Budapest. Ezter is fluent and knowledgeable and we enjoyed the culinary discoveries! Be warned though: have an empty stomach and do not make plans for a big meal that day you will be more than well fed!
