Budapest Food Walking Tour

Enjoy Hungarian food

Over a century old, the Great Market Hall is beloved in Budapest, home to fresh produce and spices from all over the country. You’ll meet your guide here to begin your tour, perusing the rows of peppers, cheese and spices as you learn about food scene in the capital city.

Meat lovers will find many dishes to delight their taste buds when it comes to the Hungarian diet. But don’t despair, vegetarians: peppers, eggplant and other seasonal veggies also play a key role in recipes, and traditional plates like stuffed pancakes are often filled with rich cheeses.

Your next stop will be at a local café, where you can try out freshwater fish and delicious chocolate made in Pest. Then cleanse your palette with a Hungarian spritzer while discussing the popular drink list in Budapest.

Afterward, burn a few calories with a stroll to the Jewish Quarter, where you can admire the Great Synagogue and the area’s kosher bakeries and pastry shops. You’ll stop to sample traditional Jewish treats before making your way to the final stop.

As you cross the famous Andrássy Avenue, a noted UNESCO World Heritage site, you’ll conclude your tour in an establishment close to St. Stephen’s Basilica. Savor Hungary's signature dish of dumplings and goulash before you go.

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.

Gergo is an exemplary: passionate guide, gastronome and historian. A fine ambassador for Budapest. We tasted so many delicious examples of authentic Budapest food via the various bakers, delicatessens, stall holders, chocolatiers, bar proprietors and restaurateurs we could not eat for the rest of the day! His perceptive attention to detail meant every participants needs were satisfied. His advice included further restaurant, bar and market locations, which allowed us to fine dine, drink and buy authentic souvenirs inexpensively for the rest of the week. I recommend this tour without reservation as a must do activity especially on your first day for anyone visiting Budapest.
