We saw the reviews and decided to give it a try and so glad we did! Livia was our tour director and did a wonderful job. The tour lasted four hours and we had an easy walk experiencing many polish traditional foods and learning the history and cultural background of the foods. This was our second trip to Budapest and one of the best tours we've done!

Agnes was our tour guide for this trip and she was fantastic.We were very fortunate that there was only 4 of us on this tour, and we all got along great. Agnes was not only friendly and outgoing but so knowledgeable about both Hungarian cuisine and the history of Hungary. Her stories and insights were fascinating. The food on the tour was great, plenty to try including salami's, goulash, ice-cream and strudel and it was great to visit the market which we went to a few days later also. I'd definitely recommend this to anybody visiting Budapest.

We LOVED this tour!!!!! Agness is phenomenal - very personable, very knowledgeable, so willing to share her country and culture. She took time to share not only the food but the history of the country, the culture, and areas of the city that you wander on the tour. She also gave us lots of tips about what and where to buy everything from the wines to the ingredients, and what to eat and where. The selection of food sampling was wonderful - from outstanding chocolate to watching them make strudel and selecting from many varieties to sample, to great food in the Jewish Quarter. Can't say enough about the experience. She made it by far the best food tour I have had in any country. Well worth the time and the money.
