Full tour description:
We meet you at your hotel or anywhere where you would like to meet your guide. We give you a small summary about what we are going to see in Budapest on the walking tour, handing out the public transportation tickets and then the fun begins.
Firstly, we go out to check out the main attractions of the city. We go up to the Castle District to see the medieval houses and the romantic cobble stoned covered historic area. At the Fisherman’s Bastion we have the chance to take excellent pictures of the panorama of the whole city. After we visit the Matthias Church and the Buda Castle with its beautiful courtyard.
Ending up at the Central Market Hall, we explain the culinary side of Hungary, in terms of all the ingredients that’s necessary to cook your proper Hungarian lunch.
After expanding your knowledge in the Hungarian kitchen, we head out to one of the best restaurants to try out what we just learned in a decent lunch. Here we try one traditional soup, like the Goulash, and also a main course to refuel our energy cells. There is nothing better than a tasty Paprikás Chicken or a pork stew followed with a glass of Hungarian wine.
Finishing our meal, we continue our exploration in the city by walking off the calories. We visit the City Park, where we get immersed in the Hungarian history at the Heroes’ Square with its so many statues of our heroes from the thousand-year-old history. From here we visit the Vajdahunyad Castle, which is a mishmash of numerous architectural styles and hosting the Agricultural Museum, just right next to the ice skating rink. We will also have the chance to peek in to the largest thermal bath, the Széchenyi thermal bath.
Coming back downtown we finish our tour in the first strudel house of Budapest to try some strudels and have a coffee while watching how they make these traditional pastries.
