Fantaxtic tour excellent guide Michael was very knowledgeable. Interesting winemaker and delicious lunch
I have never been in a vineyard before so I was excited to go on this tour, Etyek is only a 30 minute drive from Budapest and our tour guide Julie was from the area so she knew the place inside out. We tried 3 wine in the first vineyard and you could buy extra plus the first vineyard made their own brandy but I did not bring much money with me, next time I will buy the brandy and a few bottle of wine. I only had carry on luggage with me, next time I go back I will have proper luggage as you can bring back 10 liters of alcohol if traveling between EU states. We went down into the wine cellar and seen a few different techniques they employ to produce wine.
The second vineyard we went to was mainly for a 3 course Hungarian lunch with a few glass of wine from their vineyard, the food was great, I don't know what the name of the dishes were but it tasted great.
I would recommend this trip and it is not too long you will leave at around 10am and get back at around 2pm
HIghly recommend...great tour ! Wines and the lunch were wonderful !
I really enjoyed this tour. The wine country out side of Budapest is hilly and lovely with many small wineries. The white wines we tasted were amazingly good and the dinner we had was excellent. For a really good time as an extra trip out of the city I would highly recommend this tour.
Really really enjoyed this leisurely tour. 6 people and the guide. Great to see outside the city and the guide was brilliant. The people at the 2 vineyards we visited were very nice and very welcoming. Tasted the wines and got detailed very interesting explanations. Loved it.
The tour was exceptional in everyway. Our guide, Ester, was fabulous. Her knowledge and rapport made the afternoon and evening delightful. The winemakers welcomed us with fantastic wines and seemed to love the dialogue about their wines and winemaking. The dinner was like being at home. Do it!
Our guide Julianne was great. She even took photos and emailed them to everyone on the tour. The dinner at the last winery was delicious. It was a great introduction to the Hungarian oak barrels for me.
Great fun! Our tour guide, Denes, is the son of a winemaker and he had extensive knowledge of the region and the wines that are produced there. Plus the group was small 14 which made for good conversation and plenty of laughs. The food and the wines were very good. All in all a very good tour.
Tour guide excellent and one tour excellent.

This was an excellent tour and with every penny. Our lovely guide Ester picked us up at our apartment and she was extremely knowledgeable. She answered all of our questions and have I'd am introduction to the wine industry of Hungary. We arrived in Etyek which of a lovely green neighborhood with affordable homes and cellars. We enjoyed 12 lovely wines from 3 different vintners. The staff at each were very kind and fun and made for more interesting conversation. Or let stop was the best. We entered the front room of the vintners home and we're treated to a 3 course meal made by the husband of the pair. We met their dog and young son. It was such a lovely afternoon and Ester showed us how much this region had to offer!
