We did a food and wine tour of Budapest a few weeks ago with our guide Szofia. The great thing was there was only four of us so it was quite a personal tour where we were lead by Szofia to indulge in the magnificent food and the wine of Budapest and the surrounding regions. The market has a fantastic atmosphere and when we left there on foot and explored other locations eating and drinking our way around the streets of Budapest we had a thoroughly relaxed and enjoyable experience. The lunch Belvarosi Disznotoros was fantastic as we tasted a wonderfully wide range of food with every bite a delicious treat in an enjoyable atmosphere. The wine tasting at Tasting Time was also exceptional with delightful wines and delicious array of cheeses provided. Szofia provided a wonderful tour experience throughout with her breadth of information and her fantastic personality, style and relaxed conversation.
Excellent! We learnt about local food, culture and history. The tour guide was excellent, personable and a knowledgable. Sophie ? developed an instant rapport with us. Highly recommend it, make it the first thing you do there as its a great foundation for the rest of your stay.
Top tip..... Visit Budapest!! It's a wonderful city.
Sophia was the best tour guide, as we stopped through out Budapest to sample Hungarian food and drink. I highly recommend this tour, since you are educated on not only food and drink, but also the Hungarian culture, history and lifestyle.
This was absolutely wonderful! Be sure not to eat before because there is so much to taste on this tour. Budapest is a lovely city and our guide was very informative as we walked. We tasted a good variety of regional favorites, food and beverages! The finally was wine tasting in a lovely wine cellar. We highly recommend this tour!
Barbara was fantastic with here knowledge and dedication to the group. A great and enjoyable time.
This was the best thing we did in Budapest! Our guide Gabriella was a delight and the small group size made this an exceptional tour. I highly recommend this tour.
We met our guide at the Central Market in Budapest and she took us on an incredible eating and drinking tour. She was very knowledgable about all the food and wine we were served. And it was a lot of food. Don't eat breakfast. This tour was well worth the cost and would highly recommend it to anyone planning a visit to this beautiful city.
Very enjoyable. The tour guide was very knowledgable and very pleasant.
We had the best time in this tour. Suzie was our guide and she was very knowledgable! It was a lot of fun learning and tasting Hungarian food and wine! I highly recommend it and would do it again!
I loved this tour. Our guide, Barbara was wonderful and we had two other really interesting members of our group, who made the event very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this tour.
This tour was fabulous! It complimented Budapest wonderfully and provided a delightful history lesson of life behind the Iron Curtain. My tour guide was knowledgeable, interested in sharing her heritage and delightfully funny. The places we stopped along the route were relevant, interesting and hidden gems that I returned to after the tour. The wine tasting at the end of the tour was the perfect way to conclude a day of Hungarian history through food. This tour is the way to start your time in Budapest!
The tour was amazing! Our guide worked for Taste Budapest. She was a local and took us around Pest sampling the best local stops for everything from breakfast (including a pre-breakfast tradition) through a traditional lunch, dessert and wine. Come hungry for this authentic Hungarian experience!!
Our tour guide was fabulous. Tons of food. Really the highlight of our 10 day trip
The tour guide was excellent, She was knowledgable and pleasant.
I would recommend the tour to everbody
The experiences provided by this tour were amazing!!! The market was delightful and trying the wide variety of foods was really tasty and enjoyable. Had fun visiting the food and goods booths. Walking to our lunch destination provided a nice respite before enjoying lunch with the locals. FIVE STARS
Worth every calorie! Anna, our guide, was outstanding! This tour is a must!
Our guide was a fun, so much to eat (don't have a breakfast before) maybe not to everyone test. Great way of meeting different people!
Our guide was Barbara and she was full of information and very charming. She met us at the market and even though we had been there the day before, we saw and tasted many new things with Barbara's help.
All of the tasting stops we made had great local food. These were places we would never have found on our own. The last stop for wine tasting was fun and Barbara was full of information about Hungarian wines.
Our group of six was the perfect size for this adventure. One of the other ladies on our tour and I had taken a similar tour with Viator in San Juan, Puerto Rico in May. We chose this tour because that one was so well done. We will choose Viator again when booking tours!
Thanks for making this day in Budapest so special.

If you want to experience some of the Hungarian Foods, Wines and place to eat food in Budapest this is one tour we would recommend. Warning - DO NOT EAT A BIG BREAKFAST. We started at 10am in the morning the the central market. We started with a Digestif (that should have been warning enough) In the central market we sampled flat bread (with garlic topping), and meats (2 types of sausage, pork, tongue, horse and duck).The final stop in the central market was at a family owned chess and mile (unpasteurized) stand to sample goat, cow smoked and sheep cheeses. Leaving the market our guide Barbara provided us with information on the area we were walking through, history...We arrived at a local lunch place Belvarosi Disznotoros (with a line to the door) to have lunch (a very full lunch (duck, pork, salads,...). We then stopped at one of the family owned pastry shops Auuguszt for deserts (4 wonderful desert). Finally it was on to wine at a wine store / bar. Our guide Barbara provide us with many recommendations on food and beverage recommendation. Note we had enough food for the day and had only a very light meal that night.
