What people are saying about Budapest

An excellent must try introduction in Hungarian traditional foods!!!

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!!!!

Lovely. Relaxing afternoon and evening in the Etyek Wine Region

Our host Margaret was amazing. She was friendly, relaxed, knowledgeable and kept our tour on track from one cellar to the next(we visited 3 including dinner). Perfect Saturday to get away from the city and see the countryside, small cellars and visit small wineries in the region. We highly recommend this tour, maybe add the chocolate tasting as well. Our Hungarian friend Sandor came along and was impressed with the Hungarian history and of course the quality of the wine. You can buy the wine as you tour(wine you can’t buy any where else). Unfortunately we were traveling light and couldn’t pack our suitcases with extra wine. However, Hungary does not import their wines so if you love the wine from this region bring an extra suitcase :) Good communication before the tour. We were a group of 7.

Great wine, wonderful athmosphere and an amazing guide

We had a great time! The wine was fantastic, our guide Eszther was great, tought us about Hungarian history - both the wine history of the region and the overall history of the country. The lunch we had at the end was a simple bit very deliciuos home made meal prepared by the lady who owned the wineyard. I would definitely recommend this to everyone! An extra credit for Eszther for making this day great!

Excellent, fun class! I highly recommend it.

This was a first rate cooking class. Set in a lovely kitchen perfect for a small group. Marti has a lot of experience, she not only teaches you about the food, but some Hungarian history too! She even gives gluten free options. The recipies were clear and understandable, I can't wait to make them for my friends. Hungarian food is so different from California cuisine- sure to be a hit.

This was the best tour of our entire 3-week European vacation!

Barika is a very welcoming source of history/information. She was an amazing tour guide and knows a lot about her country. I highly recommend her services and would definitely pass her name on to anyone visiting Budapest! The highlight of our trip!
