Meet your guide at 10am in central Budapest, then head to the Central Market Hall — one of the largest markets in Europe — to begin your tour. On arrival, browse the stalls as your guide sheds light on the markets’ history, and learn of the local and seasonal ingredients Hungarians love.
Next, delve into the surrounding neighborhoods and discover hidden restaurants off the tourist trail. Visit artisan shops selling diverse locally made products, and sample Hungarian speciality dishes such as gulyás (goulash) and stuffed cabbage during lunch in a famous local vegan restaurant.
Learn of Budapest’s burgeoning coffee scene in conversation with a local barista, then head for dessert at an award-winning artisan chocolate-maker. Afterward, sample three Hungarian wines at a wine merchant’s and learn of the country’s diverse winemaking regions.
When your wine-tasting comes to an end, step outside the wine merchant’s to conclude your tour.
