What a wonderful job Zsuzsi did with our small group food tour in Bucharest. She combined history with culinary expertise in visiting six locations to sample the wares. We did an extensive tour of the Market and learned much about Hungarian specialties including sampling from a large assortment of sausages. Other stops sampled drinks, gelato, fish (carp), soup and goulash. It was supposed to be a lunch tour but dinner was not needed that evening.

Wow- what a great way to see the city, while experiencing the culture and learning about Hungarian lifestyle via a variety of foods and locations. Our tour guide, Dori, was great and gave personal perspectives on everything from locations, to food preparation, typical household dining customs, and more. I thought the tour sounded good, but it was way better than I'd even expected. Very fun to try different foods in different locations throughout the city while learning about the culture. Highly recommend.

This tour was so much fun! Our guide Dori was amazing. We tried chocolate, salami, fish, goulash, and strudels as well as some other small foods. The walk inbetween each place was a short easy walk and Dori pointed out and explained multiple sights as we went. It was a great way to try a bunch of different foods while seeing some of the sights! Highly recommend.

Monika was amazing -- not only did she take us to a great variety of places and help us to experience tasty food and beverages, but she went out of her way to explain the cultural significance and history of the area Central Market, ruin bars, etc.. It was like sitting down to eat with family, rather than being on a paid excursion. We have taken food tours in many cities, but this one in Budapest with Monika was definitely the very best.

Had an amazing time with this tour. We got to walk around and see a lot of the city and enjoy the restaurants.There was enough to eat and plenty of rests, and by the end of the tour you've enjoyed the entire trip.
Would recommend to anyone traveling to Budapest.

It's always great to eat good food and learn interesting things about the city at the same time. Whenever we travel, we try to take advantage of Viator's food tours and we've never been disappointed.
