Our absolute highlight of Budapest! We were shown all the sights of the Central Market while enjoying delicious traditional food. Then as we did a walking tour in the city we were treated to a wonderful lunch at a deli; followed by a stop for dessert at a cafe. We finished off the day with wine/cheese in a wine cellar. Days later and we’re still talking about it!

Fabulous tour. George was fantastic and very personable. Believe me you won’t go hungry - it’s more than a tasting! We really appreciated him keeping us in the shade where possible on a very hot day. He also gave us some history as we walked around. He took us to the “local” places for things such as paprika rather than the tourist traps. We highly recommend this tour.

George was a fantastic tour guide! Walked all over, got a great history and insight into Budapest and Hungarian culture. Tried so much food. Definitely come hungry. Also great communication throughout booking. The tour I originally signed up for didn’t have anyone else signed up so they worked with me to move it to the next day.

Awesome experience and great introduction to the world of food and drink coming from Budapest. Start in the Great Market and ventures out from there to local restaurants and end with a nice wine tasting. Very small group and our guide (Oshe) was personable, knowledgeable and entertaining. Lots of food, so come hungry!

This was a wonderful food tour led by our guide Anna. We tried so many things that we would not have considered if we were on our own. The Central Market part of the tour was very interesting and we certainly needed Anna to teach us about so many items offered there. We learned much about Budapest from our guide and enjoyed a lovely afternoon.

Really enjoyed this food tour of Budapest on our first full day in the city. Barbara was our delightful and super knowledgeable guide who impressed us with the prefect balance of Hungarian history and her in-depth knowledge of all things wine & culinary. We wouldn’t have tried many of the delicious dishes we did if it weren’t for this tour. Barbara was even kind enough to make recommendations for other restaurants to try and she gave us insider tips to make the most out of our time in Budapest.

Our tour guide Ursula was very friendly and knowledgeable. We visited great market stalls and cafes with a wide variety of foods. I loved the strudel market stall. DO NOT eat anything before going on this tour. You will be very well fed throughout.

Ana was terrific and the tour was great. We've been on a number of food tours around Europe and the USA and this one was the tops. Ana was a great and incredibly knowledgeable host. The history lessons concerning Hungary and Hungarian food and culture were plentiful.
