Book your desired tour option, and meet your guide in central Buda. Your tour includes tastings equivalent to breakfast and lunch, so come hungry!

Then, set out on your tour of the inner Buda district, a quiet residential neighborhood often overlooked by visitors, and replete with locally loved culinary spots.

Learn about the area’s architecture and multi-layered history, from its Roman roots to the Ottoman, WWII, and Communist eras, and hear how it's favored by locals for having some of Budapest’s best thermal baths.

Explore by foot and public tram, and enjoy about four to six stops at markets, restaurants, and shops to taste local specialities. Trawl a market where farmers and artisans sell fresh produce, jams, juices, cheeses, and high quality meats from prized Hungarian species. Stop for food tastings, and enjoy a shot of Hungary's beloved palinka brandy.

Visit a tucked-away restaurant for a shared meal of traditional Hungarian dishes with wine, and then head for an old-time, family-run bakery to enjoy a home-style dessert and sweet treat.

Finally, enjoy a coffee at a Soviet-era café hardly changed in decades, listening to tales of Communist rule as you sip.

Your tour then concludes in central Buda.

Andrea was our our guide and she was great! We had multiple good food experiences at the Buda market, a fabulous pastry shop and a real grandmother style cooking Hungarian restaurant. We sampled Palinka and Unicum. Wow! We finished the tour satiated by good food and information about Budapest.
