Gabriella was a, excellent guide with great knowledge about food and the history of Budapest. We frequently revisited many of the food locations that she took us to. We tried fantastic cakes and saw beautiful cafes on the tour. Her guidance and recommendations were invaluable to us during our two week stay in Budapest. We thoroughly enjoyed her sharing of her love of food and Budapest with us.

Definitely worth going on the Budapest Sweet and Coffeehouse Walk. I had a great time!! There are so many coffeehouses in Budapest, more than I realised. I definitely got to sample a wide variety of coffee coffee with honey, which was amazing and different types of sweets. I previously did a Culinary tour as well which was great too and I recommend that as well. My guide was very informative and we walked through some interesting parts of the city.
