David G

We have had food tours in other cities we rated higher. This was good but not excellent. We had 2 stops for meats which was not needed and was overlapping. Another option would have been better. The food was all good and enjoyable and the guide was very gracious and knowledgeable about all the foods but did not include any culture local history with it. She also adapted quickly and provided non alcoholic beverages to our group of 8 all non-drinkers at our stop at beer place. The info on the reservation was not passed to her.

what to expect

Eat your way around Budapest! A foodie revolution has swept through the city in recent years and brought with it Michelin-starred gourmet restaurants, reinvented market halls, street vendors, elegant cafes, and quirky food trucks.

On this tour, you get a perfect few hours of eating with the help of a knowledgeable local guide. You will enjoy up to eight to 10 food tastings, learn a little about Hungarian history, traditions, and culture along the way, and head off the beaten path to local eateries and shops not frequented by regular tourists.

Your tour begins at the tour office with a chilled, chocolate-covered túró rudi' dessert, followed by stops at the Belvárosi Piac food market, downtown food market hall of Hold Utca (not to be confused with the Central Market Hall), a local butcher shop, cheese shop, traditional restaurants, and a neighbourhood pub for a taste of locally made artisanal beers. There’s a little something for everyone!

Tastings may vary, but samples might include:

  • Hungarian cheese specialities
  • Selection of Hungarian salamis (including deer)
  • Lángos (fried Hungarian flat bread)
  • Kolbász and hurka (sausages and pickled vegetables)
  • Túró Rudi (chilled chocolate covered dessert)
  • Kürtőskalács (sweet dough pastry covered in sugar)
  • Flódni (Jewish-Hungarian cake with four different fillings)
  • Variety of craft beers and home-made lemonade

We reserve the right to offer different samples without prior notice. Vegetarian option on request.
