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. 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. Visit a nearby restaurant and savor the traditional flavours of chicken paprika before your tour finishes nearby.

Dear John, Thank you very much for this feedback! Yes, the COVID-19 situation has definitely changed our tours and the life in the city as well, but all around the globe it is the same. We are glad you could be among the last ones before the city was shut down to come and take this tour. Hopefully things will get back to normal, sooner than later. So we do hope to have you back in Budapest in the future or at any other Urban Adventures destinations! All the best,
