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.

Worth the time

This experience begins in the Central Market which is right next to a subway station. We arrived a little early and walked around. It didn't look like that much to us but once the tour began we learned a lot from our tour guide about...More
