This food tour is a fantastic introduction to Budapest
, Jan 2020
On this afternoon-long, leisurely-paced food tour, we were introduced to Hungarian cheeses, meats, pastries and drinks. We made at least seven stops in the Central Market and the old city. Our guide, Ange, was a gifted hostess. Her enthusiasm was infectious and her knowledge of the local cuisine made each meal even better. When choosing a food tour in Budapest, choose this one.
A weekend relaxing time away.

The food walking tour In Budapest was a good way to sample Hungarian traditional food and also some modern cuisine. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. There was quite a long way to walk between different eating places but interesting sights were pointed out. We didn’t need to eat dinner after the tour.
