The Faust Wine Cellar was a unique place to experience the wines of Hungary. Deep beneath the Hilton in the Castle district in a real cellar. Fantastic. Gabor freely shared his knowledge and he was an excellent host to our adventure. Very nice.
After some initial confusion with the hotel pickup, we finally arrived at a wine bar in downtown Pest near the Jewish synagogue. We had a delightful bartender who was most gracious and had us sample six different wines. He carefully explained the origin of each vintage and then we tasted. Had a great time and would definitely recommend this for any adult group. Most enjoyable.
not quite what i imagined, but the wine bar we want to was very nice, some good information about the seven wines we tasted( which were exellent) as was the local snack, if you like your wines then you will like doing this
We tasted 6 different Hungarian wines, they were all excellent. The portions were generous so was the portion of the snack (bread, cheese,etc..). The title of the trip on your web site is fairly misleading ;- ''Wine -Tasting Tour'' and so is the picture underneath. It is wine tasting but not a tour as it takes place in a pub which was very pleasant but unfortunately no atmosphere as we (2 of us) were the only people in the pub all evening. The pub is on a small side road which is very quiet and hidden from busy streets. Our waitress was lovely and very helpful but far away from knowledgeable about wine as it was advertised in the trip description on your website ,so we ended up reading the back of the bottles to have an idea what we were drinking. But after all, we had a nice evening, excellent choice of wines.
This is not a tour and there is no tour guide. You sit in a wine bar, which would have been fine but my paper said that I was to meet a tour guide and finally ask someone about the wine tasting. At first, they would bring over a glass of wine with the bottle and talk about it and the area it was from. They did this for the first two glasses and after that, we had to keep asking for the next glass.
The pick up from the hotel was the best bit about this tour, If we had just gone direct to the wine bar instead of booking through Viator it would have cost us 8euros each instead of the amount we paid. Would not recommend this tour as "host" seemed rather disinterested and was more involved in setting up his laptop to view the football. The only tour part involved was getting moved from one side of the room to the other while the chairs were rearranged!
