This food tour was a lot of fun and I would highly recommend. Anna, our guide, was super friendly and so knowledgeable about food and the city. You also get to visit a bunch of different places and try so many different foods, some walking around the market and others in a more casual restaurant setting. You really get a sense for the culture of Budapest throughout the tour. Would 10/10 recommend for anyone who loves food and wants a cultural experience

It was absolutely fantastic, plus you have your own guide and don't have to go around in a group. We got to try different Hungarian dishes and visited small family restaurants where even the locals go to eat. We also visited the large market hall.

Dalma was very informative and made our experience very enjoyable. It was great to get the chance to taste locally produced food of Hungry!

Great for getting to know the city a bit and exploring the culture through cuisine. It was great fun, incredibly tasty and interesting.

Beata was brimming with passion for food! We loved her enthusiasm and friendliness, and can thoroughly recommend this tour.
