Very informative tour with a very nice guide (Annika). You can taste a lot, from unique schnapps at the beginning, langos, different types of salami in the market hall to lunch in a typical local restaurant. Then there was coffee and various cakes in a coffee house and finally a tasting of 3 Hungarian wines. It is best to come to this tour very hungry! Clear recommendation!

Nik is very friendly guy and very knowledgeable in Hungarian history and food culture, the tour was very much enjoyable despite COVID restrictions. It is a great way to tour the beautiful city of Budapest and enjoy delicious authentic food.
