If you are tired of the ordinary tours come for some 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, a place where you will get an introduction to Hungarian food through the great variety and abundance of Hungarian ingredients and have the opportunity to try them and even pick up some souvenirs and not only edible ones! We will not only discuss the cooking but the culture of eating and I will tell you about all that pok fat, paprika and goose liver.
