Cultural and Culinary tour of Budapest


If you get tired of the ordinary tours come for an easy sightseeing with a lot of culinary experience. Experiencing the Hungarian food and wine and coffee culture is the best way to learn about our culture and traditions.

Did you know that the Great Market Hall of Budapest was built in the 19th-century and is one of Europe's finest market halls?

This is the place where you can get a taste of the local life, see how Hungarians do their daily shopping, have the opportunity to pick up some souvenirs and not only edible ones!

In the second half of the 19th century Budapest had more then 500 Coffee houses! It was like a city of coffee houses.
Visit and have coffee at Budapest most Famous Coffee Houses, and have a Hungarian lunch at a local Restaurant.

If you are interested in these kind of sights come and explore them with me!

A Recent Review of this tour

Orsolya is terrific! We had a great day walking and driving around Budapest. Orsolya is knowledgeable, funny and friendly. She was informative and we learned a lot about Budapest's history while enjoying the grand market, a coffee house, wandering around the high end shopping area and see many of the "must" see sights. Plus we ended the day at a beautiful wine bar. Excellent way to get aquatinted with Budapest. All 3 of us really enjoyed our tour. Highly recommended!
