Full Tour Description
Explore Budapest and its cuisine with an expert local guide! The walking tour starts with a visit to some traditional Hungarian food producers at a local market in downtown Budapest. Of course, we’ll be trying some of the foods as we go. While there, you’ll hear stories of how Hungarian families used to produce their favorite traditional dishes. And, you’ll have a chance to see how locals make ‘lángos’, the very special fried bread that is much loved here.
The tour continues with a visit to a local butcher’s shop, where you can indulge in various meat products with delicious pickled vegetables. Throughout this culinary journey, your guide will explain to you the traditions, customs and unforgettable stories of how much Hungarians love to eat!
While visiting Hungary you must taste ‘pörkölt’, (the real Goulash), a rich stew made of specially- chosen ingredients and the world famous sweet or spicy ‘paprika’. With us, you will have a chance to try several versions of it, from the ones made of meat to special vegetable versions as well.
Wandering in downtown Budapest, the tour visits a small family-owned patisserie with a hidden courtyard, which gives you a quick peek into an example of Budapest’s stunning architecture. You’ll definitely want to see it!
The tour will end with a tasting of three different craft beers at a local brewery while your guide gives you the background on Hungarian beers with some exciting stories connected to the country’s history.
Our walking tours run with small groups and generally do not have more than 15 participants. This makes them interactive and personal and gives you plenty of chances to ask questions and get to know your guide. You can also hit them up for local tips and hints of where to go and what else to do.
