Fantastic tour! Very much worth the time and expense. The guide was energetic and knowledgeable. Believe the description, this tour will leave you happily stuffed.
This was a great tour and one not to be missed. DO NOT eat beforehand - great tour guide, great food and interesting history.
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.
Outstanding don't eat before!
Outstanding way to learn about the city and its food.
Skip the tourist restaurants that all serve the goulash and find the real stuff on this expedition.
Outstanding food and awesome guide.
Went with my daughter on this tour. George was our tour leader who was a kind and extremely knowledgeable and likeable person. He not only informed us of the cuisine of Hungary but weaved into the tour some of the rich history of Budapest. I recall at the point of booking thinking that the price was a little steep but I can assure you that it was worth every penny! I purposely did not scrutinise previous reviews as I wanted to be surprised by the content of the day and it did not disappoint. Highly, highly recommend.
Great tour! A lot of food to sample. Our guide was exceptional!!
