    Overall: great experience and definitely worth the money! Our guide showed us the most important and iconic elements and dishes of the Hungarian kitchen. While being thought new things, we got the chance to taste different kinds of cheese, sausage, pickled vegetables as well as sweets and drinks (wine and flavored water). The explanation was supported by an image-rich power point. On top of that, we received a lot of tips for bars and restaurants around Budapest. Definitely recommend to do this tour at the beginning of your travel to Budapest!

    Mr. Glasner gives very well-founded background information on the basics and history of Hungarian cuisine. Numerous examples of cold Hungarian cuisine are available for tasting on site. These include several types of salami and cheese, pickled vegetables, two wines, desserts and quite unusual types of honey. Profound questions are allowed. Rewarding. At the time of my visit (09/2021) the information about the meeting point was a bit confusing. Mr Glasner was waiting in the restaurant to the left of number 22.

    Very nice activity, with a very friendly, very talented guide as she told us that it was her very first time. Hats off to her! We had a good laugh and it was super good. The activity is animated by a power point, with tasting of sausages, cheeses, local peppers. And a little tasting of a really great white and red wine!
