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.

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.

From the moment I met Agnes, I knew this tour would be good..I was the only one on the tour , which made it even better. A tour that stated approx duration of 3 to 3 1/2 hours went for 5 hours, as Agnes went out of her way on her time, to show me extra sights and things I was interested in. Agnes was passionate about Budapest, knowledgeable about everything , and dedicated to providing as much information as I asked!! and not all of it even relevant to Hungarian cuisine!! . The food was interesting and very tasty, the restaurants exactly what I hoped for not touristy, the commentary even better. I would thoroughly recommend this tour, and already have a few friends with the Budapest Food Walking Tour on their bucket list!! Thank you Agnes, for making my last day in Europe a memorable one!!

Hunor, our tour guide was great. Very knowledgeable, prepared, and had some his own good stories to include. I liked it wasn't just about food and drinks. Not sure how many stops we had, probably about 6-8.

Feedback for the tour, I would recommend replacing soda wine stop in the winter time as probably you can enjoy it mostly during the warmer months. Though there are some good stories to be missed.

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!
