Great tour with a great tour guide

Our family of four took the Budapest Culinary & Wine Walk with our guide Lila. We all had a wonderful time. We travel couple of times a year to foreign countries and really enjoy learning about the city and the culture by taking tours. This tour did not disappoint. Our tour guide was very knowledgable, and we tasted an enormous variety of traditional Hungarian food and drinks. We spent a good amount of time at the central market where Lila had us taste Unicum (a traditional Hungarian liquor), langos, salami samplings from a butcher shop, various pickled goods from a pickling store, and finished with Hungarian chocolates. We went next to a butcher shop where we tasted a traditional Hungarian meal consisting of Schnitzel, goulash, fried chicken stuffed chicken, fried cheese and a variety of pickled vegetables (notice the common theme here?? fried and pickled food). We stopped by Central cafe and had dessert and coffee. The tour ended at a wonderful wineshop where we sampled various Hungarian wines and cheese. We are experienced tour connoisseurs and I have to say I have never had such an ample selection of wonderful food. Lila was very knowledgable and very friendly. We all enjoyed her sense of humor and were sad the tour came to an end.

Amazing Tour

I had a wonderful time on this tour. I traveled to Budapest in 2016 and took this tour for the first time. I had so much fun, I booked the tour again for my second trip to Budapest. My second tour surpassed my first. Our guide Esther was amazing. She is very knowledgeable and filled us in on the history of Budapest and we walked from one location to the next. We sampled amazing food and wine and had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking for a fun and unique way to explore Budapest.

Lots of Food

We enjoyed our 4+ hours spent with Andrea. She had lots of knowledge of the foods and history of the city. We started in the central market with some tastings and then walked around to several different !ovations. Lunch was almost more than I could eat! We finished off with some wine tastings of very nice wines in a nice place.

Did the tour yesterday with Danielle and had a great time. Danielle was very knowledgeable of Hungarian cuisine and shared in an informal yet informative manner. Sampled many foods - some familiar, many not. The food was good, the tour was well-paced, and the group was the perfect size at 8. Highly recommend this tour.

Enjoyable food and wine experience

This was really a fascinating way to get to understand the Hungarian culture from a food and wine point of view. Really enjoyed the variety of stops (morning tea at the Market Hall, lunch, famous patisserie, artisan chocolates, and even Hungarian wine) although I think it might have been one stop too many! We were stuffed by the end of the tour. Perhaps drop the patisserie shop. The lunch spot was definitely where locals went for a quick bite to eat but might have preferred more choice in what we ate. Loved the small group format. Definitely recommend (but don’t even think about eating any breakfast!)

Wonderful introduction to Budapest

We ended up being the only 2 people on this tour and our tour guide made this an awesome experience. We ended up running an hour over the scheduled time. So much food we couldn't eat it all. Luckily our guide had a local homeless person who was thrilled to receive our leftovers. Our guide was so informative on the history of the area and of the foods and she was a delightful person. We highly recommend this experience to others who like food and drink tours.

More. Food tasting than we expected

The tour took us to the Central Market Hall where we got to sample a variety of typical hungarian snacks, meats, desserts... much more than we expected. Then we walked around the huge market hall before proceeding to a chocolate shop, a few minutes walk away, where we got to sample chocolates of our choice. Then we continued our walking tour to Tasting Table where we sampled 3 tyoes of wines, coupled with a variety of cheese and bread dips. The tour did not end there. We then walked to the butcher shop where we were served a traditional hungarian lunch of soup of choice (goulash or pheasant soup), 3 types of sausages with potato fries, and pork knuckle with pickled peppers and cucumbers and beer. Then we ended the tour with a stop at the coffee shop for coffee and 3 types of dessert. This was definitely much more than we expected - not only in quantity, but also quality. My only recommendation is for tour guide to speak a little louder, (and more "force") specially since we were in the middle of the market place. But she was very informative and helpful. I also wished we could see them preparing the food, when possible.
