Day 2: Budapest

Hungarian cuisine is a multi-faceted creation - a long tradition of rich comfort foods, and innovative techniques with French influence using local ingredients. Meet with your private driver and English-speaking guide for a gourmet tasting experience at the Hold Street Market Hall for the best of Hungary's gastronomy. 

Experience the traditional cuisine of Hungary from some of the best internationally acknowledged chefs of the country, for example, the Michelin star chef Tamás Széll. The food tasting takes place in the most gorgeous and modern market in the city center.

The downtown Hold Street Market Hall is the hub for traditional Hungarian and international cuisine, with high-quality ingredients and the expertise of world-famous Hungarian chefs found on every corner. The gastro and gourmet market is the home to the most innovative kitchens of the capital, featuring Michelin star chefs, and also welcomes farmers who offer their local products and serves as one of the fanciest sites of Budapest.

Start with the first course at MoszkvaTéЯ Bistro, a luxurious setting named after a former popular public gathering place in Budapest that fills a gastronomic and spiritual gap in the city. Taste a terrine of locally bred fish and a popular duck liver dish served with a glass of Hungaria Grande Cuvée sparkling wine.

Continue to "The Chef's Street", a downtown marketplace that offers a high-end interpretation of traditional Hungarian food. Serving rustic local meals fused with high-quality ingredients and prepared with Michelin star standard expertise, dine on a choice of traditional Hungarian ratatouille or the 'Hortobágy' style pancake with meat, paired with a glass of Kadarka wine or a rosé spritzer.

End with a dessert at Stand 25 Bistro, a project of Hungary's most famous fine dining chef, 2016 Bocuse d'Or European Champion Tamás Széll. Originally known for his work at the Michelin one-star Onyx restaurant, the mission of Stand 25 Bistro is to present perfect traditional Hungarian meals using only fresh local ingredients and a fresh approach. The market tasting tour finishes here with the unique Hungarian  ‘Somlói’ style sponge cake paired with the 'wine of kings, king of wines', Tokaji aszú wine.

Most dietary restrictions can be accommodated, please advise at time of booking if there are any restrictions that must be considered. 

Overlooking the Danube river in the heart of Buda’s Castle District, the neighboring sites of Matthias Church and Fisherman’s Bastion are two of Budapest’s most iconic historic buildings. With your private guide, spend a half day discovering the breathtaking architecture and mesmerizing views of the city. Also known as the Church of Our Lady of Buda, the Roman Catholic Matthias Church was originally constructed in 1015, although the current Gothic style structure dates to the second half of the 14th century. During the 150-year period of Turkish occupation, it served as the city’s main mosque. Named after King Matthias Corvinus, the church was later restored with heavy Baroque influence after the years of Turkish rule. Continue next door to Fisherman’s Bastion, constructed between 1895 and 1902. The seven towers of the bastion represent the seven Magyar tribes that originally settled in the Carpathian Basin in 895, and the terrace’s neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque design features impressive towers, colonnades, and embrasures. The towers offer sweeping vistas over the city and the Danube and are a popular choice for panoramic photos overlooking the Danube.

Entrance fees to Matthias Church and Fisherman's Bastion are included.

  • Susan C. — October 11, 2018 — Europe

    Working with Danny S. was a real pleasure. He was lovely, very professional and knowledgeable. Our trip was so enjoyable and stress free. Hotels were perfect, restaurants booked by Kensington were authentic and the food was excellent. The flamenco show was so much fun and the venue was relaxing and intimate. Our guides were prompt, smart and passionate about their country. A really wonderful group of individuals. It was very reassuring to know we always had a person on the ground to call if necessary. This was an A+ trip and we will always have wonderful memories of a beautiful country and it’s warm and welcoming citizens. My heartfelt thanks to Danny and all others who planned a perfect trip on our behalf. We look forward to another trip in 2019!

  • Marilyn K. — September 20, 2018 — Europe

    Our guides were knowledgeable and kind beyond expectation, and were extremely amenable to our requests. The tour expert was very patient and knowledgeable as well, and truly had our travel wishes in mind when creating our trip to Poland. It was a wonderful and amazing life changing experience!

  • Irene Y. — September 13, 2018 — Europe

    This trip was just what we were looking for, a private tour of England, Scotland and Dublin. Julie C. was awesome! She and I worked together to figure out what my family and I wanted to do. I could have never done it without her! The cars/guides were waiting at the airport for us. Everyone associated with Kensington Tours was so helpful and kind. The location of the 3 hotels, we stayed in, were amazing!! We walked everywhere! Each tour, we were scheduled for, went smoothly, and on time. The tour guides were so smart and informative about the places we went. I didn't stand in one hotel concierge line. My tickets and vouchers were printed out and in hand ahead of time. Julie even researched and scheduled horseback riding in the Dublin Mountains, which they hadn't handled before. What a highlight that was!! This trip was everything I asked for. I will be using Kensington Tours and Julie again!!

  • Lesley M. — September 04, 2018 — Europe

    We thoroughly enjoyed our entire trip to Greece. Everything went as planned, our hotels met and exceeded our expectations. The tour guides were all marvelous - knowledgeable, personal, patient, organized and pleasant to be with. And our sunset cruise in Santorini was superb - first class catamaran, crew and their other passengers were great to be with. We met a couple who also were frequent Kensington Tours clients and we all agreed you are our top choice when it comes to travel tours. Thank you for another unforgettable trip!

  • Ronnie B. — May 29, 2018 — Europe
