We really enjoyed our food walking tour in Budapest! Our hearts were happy and bellies were full! We had a great time learning about the culture and history that have shaped the cuisine of Hungary. We had a chance to sample various traditional dishes and beverages at Main Market Hall, a local chocolate shop, butchery/restaurant, coffee house, and we particularly enjoyed finishing the tour with some wine tasting. This food tour was very well organized and coordinated we felt like we had a reasonable quantity of food and beverage for the price and that selection of food and beverage was very varied for all palates. We highly recommend this to future visitors to Budapest!

All the instructions were clear to meet up. We met Aniko our guide in the market and another young couple from England. We started off in the market and were introduced to a lot of the regional foods,tasted them, and Aniko, who was very knowlwdgeable explained them to us. Over the next few hours we tried meats, sausages, chocolate, a traditional lunch at a butchers which included traditional soups, breads, meats, and pickles. Then onto a traditional coffee house for cake and coffee.The tour concluded at a tasting cellar where Tamas matched local wines and cheeses. We were able to buy some of the wines. A lovely 4 hour tour and would highly recommend it.

The tour began at the Great Hall and continued around the surrounding area for four hours. We ate and drank many of the traditional Hungarian foods and wines. Our guide was local but spoke excellent English. She took us to some well known spots as well as some we would never had stopped at.

I strongly encourage people to do the culinary tours in new cities. This one is superb. Not only did a food walk through the Grand Market where we tried horse sausage...yum, but had lunch at a traditional butcher's shop. Yum Yum. Our tour guide was super nice and she knew a ton about food and the area. She was super hot, so I really doubt she eats all this rich food all the time. We enjoyed the shots of Unicum. The tour ends at a wine tasting. Hungarian wines are superb, especially the dessert wines. The wine shop was awesome and had great prices on wine, Unicum, and Palinka. Don't miss this tour.

Great tour!!! Tour guide Ursula was good. There were 6 in our group, for 5 hours. Got to try a wide variety of Hungarian foods and spirits, and get a little tour of Budapest! The tour started off in the Central Market, with some traditional Hungarian snack items, and some 'medicine' ie: a shot glass of the Unicum Zwack herbal liqueur. Went to a few stalls in the market, and to a couple restaurants, and to a coffee/dessert shop, then finished the tour in a wine cellar by tasting 3 different wines!
Everything about the tour was really nice!!! I'd highly recommend this food tour to anyone who's new to Budapest and /or to Hungarian food. You'll get a great 'taste' of the city!!!

Our guide, Barbara, knew exactly how to start off a tour with 6 people, half of whom did not know each other - we went straight to a booth in the market that was selling the famous Hungarian liqueur Unicom and bonded over a shot. We spent the next while in the large and busy but not overcrowded market building trying everything from Lagos deep fried garlic bread to sausage to sauerkraut. After the market we headed outside and went to three more locations for a wine tasting, a lunch of local foods, and finally a dessert shop for the famed cakes of Hungary. It was fun, said informative and 4 hours passed more quickly than I'd thought it would.
