“The market tour was a lot of fun, Agnes spent time explaining about the things we were looking at. She had told us before coming not to have too much breakfast and this was a good thing, she organised lots of samples of food for us to try. She was very organized, the food was amazing. We thank her very much for the most memorable time in Budapest.”

Kim C. from Melbourne, Australia

“The market and tasting tour with Andrew was fantastic. Do not to eat beforehand, you will be stuffed full of delicious food by the end of the tour. They took us through all levels of the building, buying foods and explaining them to us while we tasted them. It’s one of those experiences that really sticks with you. We walked away full, happy with our delightful hosts.”

Trevor D. from Chicago, USA

“We met Agnes at the market and the next 2 hours were a blend of Hungarian delights. We tasted delicious foods, saw hand made crafts, learned about the foods that make Hungarian cuisine unique. We visited all three floors of the market and experienced a part of Budapest that many tourists never see. This is truly an experience not to be missed while in Budapest.”
