About
Because this tour has nothing to do with tourism. This has to do with Hungary, its people, culture, and gastronomy. Do you want to be just another tourist in Budapest? Or do you want to get a personalized travel experience and feel like a local? We invite you to participate in our Home lunch/dinner program, and to get a true taste of typical Hungarian food! The home lunch program introduces Hungarian cuisine and turns it into a real personal travel experience. For lunch we will serve you a complete Hungarian meal, along with some good Hungarian wine! "Lunch at Mom and Pop's house was the highlight. AMAZING! They were so nice too.. we wanted them to adopt us. They really made us feel at home. I feel lucky to have had such a unique experience. I will no doubt recommend this tour to anyone who visits Budapest." (As reviewed by a Tripadvisor member)

Incredible Dinner and unique experience.
Our family had an wonderful time meeting Andras and his parents. His mother prepared an absolutely delicious meal. We really enjoyed the evening and getting a local perspective. Kids also loved it! Very grateful for the opportunity.

Relaxing way to see Budapest and more
I had been to Budapest 2 years before and done a tour with Andras. This time we did the tour with Attila. If you are short on time or just want to see the highlights without worrying about the details and how to get around - this is it. Attila picked us up promptly and took us to all of the highlights of Budapest. Some of us couldn’t walk so well so it was great. I know what to see already since I’ve been here before, and we definitely saw a lot in a short period of time. We also did the personal Hungarian dinner. You see where the real folks live which is something different. Good food and enjoyable company. We enjoyed the day so much, we booked Attila to take us to Eger. Sure I could have driven myself, but who wants to drive back to Budapest after drinking some wine?! Not I! He’s very kind, easy going and flexible. So you can probably arrange other excursions or personalize what you want to see. Lastly, you get this personal touch at a very reasonable price. So go ahead, relax, and spend some time with some real Hungarians.

Second time on this tour for some
Aug 2019
It was second time on this tour for some in our group and first for one other. There are many things one does on vacation that aren’t memorable, this isn’t one of them - very nice and memorable day with Atilla and with Andras’ parents. Highly recommended! Thanks very much for another great day!!

Brilliant and personal
Had an amazing tour with Andras and lunch at the house of his parents (who were so welcoming and lovely it really made our trip). Andras was great with the kids and clearly has an exceptional knowledge of, and love for, Budapest. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Incredible Evening
Mar 2019 • Family
We were picked up from our hotel lobby by our driver and wonderful guide/host Andras. It was a very nice ride with lots of local information and points of interest mentioned. We arrived at the home of his parents and all 6 of us were welcomed very warmly with glasses of palinka poured immediately. It was an amazing dinner full of Hungarian dishes and dessert and was greatly enjoyed by all. I would highly recommend this experience for anyone who wants to enjoy true Hungarian food and spend some time with a wonderful family.

Traditional Hungarian dinner with locals in their home
Sep 2018 • Couples
We spent a WONDERFUL evening with Andras and his incredible parents in their home. Probably one of the best things we have ever done. Gracious hosts and Andras our guide was spectacular. The food and drinks were wonderful, but more importantly we were able to get to know a wonderful family. I would highly recommend this and I would highly recommend Andras as a guide.

It was one of the best experiences in Budapest. Wonderful hosts and great local food. From drinks to deserts everything was simply superb. Homely food and great setup to get local experience. Strongly recommend and must do in Budapest. Andras was a great guide and made our trip fun.

Home visit and tour around Budapest
Oct 2017 • Couples
We were four couples traveling together and spending 4 days in lovely Budapest. We chose this tour because we wanted to see the most of Budapest in a relative short time and we wanted to experience something different, which is why we also choose the Hungarian lunch in a Hungarian home.
Our guide picked us up at 11.00, we went with a minibus around Budapest, and we had a few photo stops during the tour as well. After the tour, we went to the home visit. The host was very friendly and it was a great experience. The food was okay, nothing special, but quite okay.
Our guide during the whole tour was also friendly and we would rate him “average”. It would be nice if he spoke more and was a bit more prepared.
