Discover and experience the traditional ingredients of Hungarian cuisine on our classical walking tour!
Explore the traditional ingredients of Hungarian cuisine and enjoy the cultural experience while tasting some typical food of the country. Your local guide will introduce you to everyday life of Hungarian people through some hidden places of Budapest. Join our four-hour long walking tour and enjoy the experience!
Exploring Budapest through its food and drinks is the best way to do it! Our food, wine, and cultural walking tour begins at The Central Market Hall - one of Europe’s largest and most spectacular indoor markets - and continues through the charming nearby neighbourhood. Be sure to come with an appetite. You will need it on this tour!
 
At the Central Market Hall we will begin getting acquainted with Hungarian cuisine through the great variety and abundance of ingredients (which are mostly local and seasonal) on display. We will discuss the history of the building, the culture of eating and drinking in Hungary, and the everyday cooking and eating habits. The tour also includes an introduction to Hungarian paprika and will reveal why it is so special, how Hungarian cooks use it, and how it is produced. After tasting a few carefully selected things at the market, we will head out to the surrounding neighbourhood and visit a few more places. Lunch will be at a traditional restaurant, where we will taste a special Hungarian spirit as well. No day in Budapest is complete without dessert, so we will also stop at a cafe visited only by locals to taste some very special local dumplings.

The tour will end with a tasting of three quintessential Hungarian wines. During the tasting your guide will introduce you to the Hungarian wine regions, varietals, and styles. This tour will give you a taste of the traditional side of Hungarian cuisine, as well as the modern artisan producers and speciality food shops of the area.

We try our very best to cater for dietary requirements but due to local food customs we cannot guarantee that this will be possible in all cases. Options for vegetarians, guests with allergies and religious dietary restrictions may be very limited.

This was really good fun. Lots to see around the markets and also tasting. The wine tasting was also good and the meal in the Jewish Quarter was really excellent. Good value for money.

We had the most wonderful tour. Our guide Eva was great and gave us great insight into the history, wine and food of Budapest. We had a great variety of food and drinks to taste and also a great lunch at the Butchers shop. Would highly recommend.
