Budapest Food Walking Tour
Discovering a city’s food is easier with a guide—you’ll cover the classics, discover the locals’ favorite shopping stops, and learn the full story behind dishes. This half-day Budapest experience delivers with sit-down restaurant visits, a bowl of Hungarian goulash (stew), and tour of the Great Market Hall, inclusions not featured in some similar tours. Plus, you see key landmarks in between, including St. Stephen’s Cathedral and the Jewish Quarter.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at the Great Market Hall, Budapest’s main food market, and set off to discover the food on sale.

Peruse the cheese, sausage, fresh fruit, and vegetable stalls as you hear about the city’s food scene and locals’ passion for roast and stewed meats. Discover, too, how vegetables such as eggplant and peppers are featured in many recipes, and about other staples such as cheese-filled pancakes.

Next, visit a café to enjoy some freshwater fish before sampling some chocolate made in Pest. Then, cleanse your palate with a classic Hungarian spritzer while learning about popular drinks in the city.

Continue to the Jewish Quarter, passing the Great Synagogue and viewing the wares at kosher bakeries. Taste some traditional Jewish goodies and cross UNESCO-listed Andrássy Avenue to visit a restaurant near St. Stephen’s Basilica. Here, savor Hungary's signature goulash (stew) and dumplings before your tour finishes nearby.

Great Tour!

What a great tour! Monika was very friendly and very knowledgeable and she even helped me get on the subway system to get back to my hotel. She went above and beyond and I would recommend her to anyone that visits Budapest!

A lot more than food

A real off-the-beaten-trail tour of locals spots. As much culture as good. Our guide Dori was excellent!
