Really liked this tour. Only issue was finding our guide at the start. We were in front of Great Market Hall at our start time, but could not find our guide as she was not holding up anything to alert us that she was the guide. We called the number on our voucher and the company contacted the guide, who we just happened to run into thankfully. Once we got going, the tour ended up being very good. Had a brief tour of the market hall, had some sausage and bread that was excellent, and a chance to buy a few things at one of the stalls. Then on to the Jewish quarter via tram where we went to an outside food court and had mici which was great. then moved on and had a nice lunch at a traditional Hungarian restaurant. Then on to one of the best Ruin bars which was really cool. Eclectic for sure with wild decorations throughout. Had a beer here and chance to rest up for a few. Then on to a pastry shop to have the famous tunnel cake, which was fresh and tasty. Tour was overall good.
This experience was a gift for my wife and the best gift she receive (in her own words). She always wanted to learn how to cook gulas stew, but never quite made it at home, so we took this opportunity and we are very glad we did it. First of all, we stayed outside Budapest and Marti's husband Peter was so kind to came and pick us up from hotel (Aqua World) showing us Budapest sights until we arrived at the market. There we met Marti and were introduced in market history. We bought fresh ingredients for our dishes (we wanted hungarian fish soup, goulash stew with dumplings and apple pie) and we ate langos (also a must try experience in Hungary). After that, we went to cook!!!!! Great experience, great teacher, family made palinka :) and natural sirop (juice from fruits), Hungarian wine, and of course, great food. After the meal, Peter took us back to hotel were we relax the rest of the day. Thank you Marti and Peter, we look forward to see you again!!!!
Very highly recommended. We spent a wonderful morning with Aniko, and were extremely impressed with the quality of the tour. The food is great, of course, and it’s clear that a lot of care has gone into choosing the stops. It gives a wonderful glimpse into local Budapest life, and we came away with a far deeper appreciation of the city and its past. Aniko is a delight.
Nik is very friendly guy and very knowledgeable in Hungarian history and food culture, the tour was very much enjoyable despite COVID restrictions. It is a great way to tour the beautiful city of Budapest and enjoy delicious authentic food.
This was our first time in Budapest, so we hired a guide for our first full day, deciding to concentrate on the Pest side with a 6hr guided walk..a very good decision as it gave a good orientation of the city and invaluable local knowledge.
