Budapest: Walking Tour with Food Tastings
- Small group
- Duration: 3.5 hours
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!!!!
Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this 4 hour tour with Barbra. It started in the Central market with a shot (medicinal we were told) of Unicom and then continued with a tour and tastes from various booths in the Central Market building. After the market we went to a chocolate shop, a local restaurant where we sampled more dishes than we could count while standing up at an outside table with the locals, followed by a coffee/dessert cafe and then finishing with a wine tasting. Warning: Do not eat before starting this tour!!!
Monika was amazing! Her English was excellent and it was so interesting to learn about Budapest from her perspective. The pace was terrific, the e-bikes made it a breeze to tackle the hills of Buda and the city is incredibly beautiful! We feel like we saw in 4 hours, what would have taken us days to walk. The cakes offered on our break were delicious!
Eva our guide is a wonderful woman. The tour was amazing reach of so many informations she provided us that we wanted to write everything down. She is really like the perfect guide should be. Gentle, kind, emphatic, full of knowledge about the history and not only. It was a great experience thanks to her. We are really satisfied. Thank you Eva!
