Know More about this tour

Meet your guide in Budapests Central Market Hall a legendary landmark thats more than 100 years old. Loved by locals and visitors alike, the hall is an institution in Budapest, selling specialty produce from all over Hungary. Browse the stalls, sample slices of locally cured salami and sausage, and learn about Budapests ever-intriguing food scene.

While still using enough meat to make vegetarians weep, Hungarian cuisine in Budapest at least has more to it than meets the eye. Seasonal vegetables play a starring role in many of the capitals kitchens, and classic dishes like palatschinke (stuffed pancakes) are often filled with ripe cheeses or sauerkraut. Embrace the local love for freshwater fish by sampling specialties in a side-walk caf, and then try chocolates from an award-winning chocolate factory in Central Pest.

Wash down the tasty treats with a Hungarian spritzer in a retro caf while discussing the different drinks that feature in many Budapest bars. Work off the food with a walk to the citys historical Jewish quarter (often called Elizabeth Town or district VII) and then stop for photos next to the Great Synagogue, an impressive place of worship tucked away between the neighborhoods kosher bakeries and cake shops. Sample some of the local Jewish fare and then stroll back toward the center of town.

Cross Andrssy Avenue, an elegant UNESCO World Heritage-listed street, and then finish in an authentic restaurant near St Stephen Cathedral, enjoying your tours pice de rsistance: a bowl of hearty Hungarian goulash and dumplings.

  • One of the best food tours we have taken. Sampled Hungarian food, drinks, and desserts all over the city.

  • Had an amazing time with this tour. We got to walk around and see a lot of the city and enjoy the restaurants.There was enough to eat and plenty of rests, and by the end of the tour you've enjoyed the entire trip.
    Would recommend to anyone traveling to Budapest.

  • lots of stops, lots of photo opportunities, well worth it.

  • The Budapest Sights and Bites tour was great! The 4 hour walking tour by our guide Monika was fabulous. Wevstarted at the Grand Market, visited several restaurants and were given a historical background about the city and its buildings. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Budapest.

  • It's always great to eat good food and learn interesting things about the city at the same time. Whenever we travel, we try to take advantage of Viator's food tours and we've never been disappointed.

  • This was the best thing we did in Budapest. The guide was great, the food was great, the sights and history were great. It was quite a lot of walking - we were worn out by the end. But totally worth it!

  • Gergo is an exemplary: passionate guide, gastronome and historian. A fine ambassador for Budapest. We tasted so many delicious examples of authentic Budapest food via the various bakers, delicatessens, stall holders, chocolatiers, bar proprietors and restaurateurs we could not eat for the rest of the day! His perceptive attention to detail meant every participants needs were satisfied. His advice included further restaurant, bar and market locations, which allowed us to fine dine, drink and buy authentic souvenirs inexpensively for the rest of the week. I recommend this tour without reservation as a must do activity especially on your first day for anyone visiting Budapest.

  • This tour was a great way to really see the out of the way sights and to enjoy wonderful, local food. Our guide was very knowledgeable. I would certainly recommend this tour. Jill Australia

  • Great guide, excellent food tastings....make sure you start on an empty stomach

  • Went on this tour with Gergo, he was enthusiastic and knowledgable. Lots of variety from the cured meats at the market hall, to the fish restaurant, kosher style restaurant and finally goulash and strudel at the strudel house. One thing to note - the tour started in the central market hall but doesn't spend much time there, either come early or make time to return on another day.
