Meet your guide in central Budapest and start your evening with a short walk to your dining establishment, a highly recommended restaurant. As you get to know your fellow travelers, begin your delightful feast with a first course -- most likely fresh, home-baked bread with an accompanying spread.
Before the main course arrives, get your first tasting of pálinka, a traditional Hungarian fruit brandy made from a mash of ripe fruits, which are distilled and bottled locally. Another type of this liqueur will follow your main dish, which includes at least three choices plus a vegetarian option, depending on the seasonal menu.
Top off your meal, including a choice of two beverages (house wine, local beer or soft drinks), with a delectable dessert of rétes (traditional Hungarian strudel) and a shot of unicum, a digestif of 40 herbs aged in oak. Your knowledgeable guide will inform your small group about these culinary delights as you dine and receive true Hungarian hospitality.
Then, get a taste of Budapest’s nightlife. With your guide, visit at least three stylish clubs or classic bars -- such as Instant or Szimpla -- where you can hang out and enjoy being treated like a local.
Toast your night out in Budapest with a complimentary drink in the first venue, and then continue your bar crawl, consuming Hungarian beer and other favorites as you learn about the customs that accompany this pastime! (Additional drinks are at your own expense.)
Your small-group tour concludes at the final bar, from which you can stay out on your own or return to your hotel; your guide will orient you to the location and provide you with directions.
