Private Tour
Have your private guide pick you up in your hotel (if it is centrally located) and take you on your very own culinary adventure in Budapest!

Get to know Budapest through its food and drink on this walking tour that puts the focus on Hungary’s culinary culture and concludes with a wine tasting. Skip the research and the guesswork, and let a guide lead you and your small group of up to six people to the top food spots in Central Market Hall and its surrounds. Come on the hungry side; samples are generous and a shared meal is included.

What to Expect

Meet your group of no more than six fellow food-lovers inside the city's Central Market Hall, ground zero for all things culinary in Budapest. With your gourmand guide leading the way, you'll head straight for the best stalls while listening to an introduction to Hungarian cuisine.

Strike out into the surrounding neighborhood for stops at an artisan chocolate shop, a coffee house, a kosher bakery, a spice shop, or other options, depending on the day. Your small group size makes it possible to ask your guide questions and focus on learning everything you ever wanted to know about Hungarian cuisine.

Sample traditional Hungarian dishes and authentic cakes during a shared meal, and finish with a Hungarian wine tasting. The guided tasting will teach you about the country's varietals, regions, and winemaking styles.

Your tour concludes at the tasting venue.

Excellent Tour

This was one of the very best tours we took recently. Our guide was Eszter and she was joined by a trainee guide (two for the price of one). They were both very knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole tour from the central market...More
