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.

Orchestra was excellent and dancers were enthusiastic, and lovely to w

The guide who led us to the boat should be fired. It was difficult to follow her because she was short, dressed in dark clothes at night and did not carry a long sign. She lost us on the way so we missed the cruise. However, the company refunded this part of the ticket. I highly recommend the show.

Extremely interesting tour of the castle area

Daniel was very knowledgable and gave us loads of information and took us to some really interesting places in the castle district. We really enjoyed our 3 hour tour and the coffee break at the little cafe. Very good value for money. We would definitely recommend this tour.

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!
