I had the most amazing day on this tour. Our wonderful guide, Julia, was just generally brilliant at her job. She made the day a really great experience and finished with a perfect restaurant recommendation. I cannot say a bad word about either Julia or the tour in general. Highly recommend!

Great tour. Guide was informative, and the market very interesting. The wine cellar in the basement of the offices was ideal for the tastings. Would recommend.

Our tour guide was fantastic. It was great to hear the history of the food in the Great Market Hall. Loved the walking tour and the history of each place before tasting wine. Great little spot. Lunch was very good and the service was fantastic.

Meeting at the Great [food] Market was an ideal place to begin this tour. We were alarmed when no one else turned up , past the meeting time but mightily relieved when our guide Edina showed up with a smile. Being the only two was amazing and probably most unusual again as we were there early in the season. However it is a tour where the numbers should be restricted to about 8, as all the information is conveyed whilst walking around the City. Those at the back of a line would miss out.[the special equipment Viator provided in Rome would help with larger groups]. We were fine however and enjoyed a large local pastry before a tram ride to near the wine cellar, literally under the road where we tasted a variety of wines providing a real education into this Hungarian 'secret'. We walked on around the Jewish Quarter and were presented to a local restaurant where we found the food excellent and generous . This tour was EXCELLENT VALUE for money and Edina was a really professional guide. A fair bit of walking was involved [in high temperatures more like July/August] which might not suit all but we enjoyed that aspect too.

Wonderful tour guide that has a passion for her job. Prior to our visit we had no understanding of Budapest or what to do, we were provided a wonderful overview of the great market, took a tram to our wine tasting and had a wonderful lunch. Good wines and great setting.

The tour was awesome! Our guide, Barbara was lovely and really knowledgeable - every step of the day was great, the Great Market Hall, wine tasting and lunch. I would highly recommend the tour for everyone!

We liked this tour. We did it early one and thought this was the best goulash (which seemed mandatory at all the other tours). The wine tasting was in the basement of a bicycle shop but it was fine. The guide did a good job of discussing the wines and the wine history of Hungary. Before the wine tasting, we walked to the central market and rode the train back to the starting point. The guide did a good job of discussing the items we saw on the way. This is a good "first day" tour.

This was really great fun. We enjoyed the trip out into the countryside, even though there was one brief rain shower. Our guide was fun and knew lots of information about the area and the wine. She even made lunch for us when we stopped at a small family-owned winery. Couldn't have been a better day!
AND all the biking was downhill. No worries.
