First a lesson on wines of Hungary and a wine tasting, excellent. Guide was a college student named "Barbie", a rough English translation. Then on to St Stephen's Church, also excellent on the history. Then on to the Christmas Market and hot punch. All around superb.

The tour was good, but even in 3 hours it was too rushed to see much of the city. Mostly we just saw buildings from the outside without ever having the chance to see the inside. Although it was great to enjoy strudel en route, perhaps that 1/2 hour could be used to show other sites or to explore inside a building (eg. St. Stephen's) or pass in front of the Parliament Buildings. Budapest is spread out and doesn't lend itself easily to a walking tour - thank goodness for the metro. Barbara HB was a good guide and most helpful in arranging some other details for me.

Preceded by a Hungarian wine tasting and tutorial in a charming off street local book and media shop, followed by a fascinating visit to St Stephen's cathedral where perchance we were privileged to hear a rehearsal of the choir performing a Christmas cantata. The Christmas market was our favorite of mArkets visited in four countries largely made so by the sharing of personal favorite stalls and their offerings by our guide.

Great guide, good English would have liked to have found out more about tradition ,etc walked thru the Opera House, St Stephens on our way to the market. If you're there at Christmas do the market on your own, its fun and real easy. Good street food !! a local delicacy ,Rooster Testicles, Yummy!!!
