Why I Recommend This Tour
Budapest has some of the most beautiful Christmas markets in Europe! However, if you want to find the best local produces and the most delicious foods and drinks, you should definitely sign up for this tour so that you can visit the best markets with a local guide. The tour also includes plenty of tastings, so you won’t have to worry about lunch after the tour.
Founder of Budapest Local
“As a Precursor to our European River Cruise I booked this Christmas Market Tour in Budapest. We had the good luck to be the only two people on the tour. Eszter showed us around three markets pointing out different affractions and giving both history advice on purchases that we made. We had so many food and wine tastings and even went into a coffee shop. 3 hours turned into 4, but the best part was Eszter who was so great and interesting to talk to. What a joy this representive of Taste Hungary was, nothing was too much trouble as she showed us around I would recommend this tour to anyone especially at Christmas time.”
