The owner, Livia, took us for what was intended to be a three and a half hour tour. It turned out to be closer to five and every moment was a pleasure. We made frequent stops at interesting sights, restaurants, and bars. We ate small bits all along the way. Livia was lovely and very knowledgeable. She spoke of the complex history of this city that has seen so much change over it's lifetime. She made it more real with experiences and stories passed to her by her grandparents. The time flew by. I've been fortunate to have taken city tours in other European countries - this was, by far, the best ever. I give Livia and her well planned and executed tour an unqualified endorsement.

As first time visitors to Budapest, this was a great introduction to the city and the local food. Nice cross section of food sampled as well. Eniko was an excellent guide for our Tour, very passionate about her city and its food, culture and history. We thoroughly enjoyed our "bites" experience and would recommend it to friends. Nice touch was the bottled water which Eniko supplied at the beginning of the tour. Very much appreciated.

Do not miss this tour, it is the best I have been on in my many visits to Europe. It gives you a peep behind the tourist scene, and a glimpse of how history affected the lives of ordinary people. And then there is the food! Scrumptious tastes in amazing locations, from goulash to hand made chocolates. Not to mention the most melt in the mouth strudel in the Cosmos. This tour was the highlight of my trip.

What a great way to get your bearings in the beautiful city of Budapest and get a full belly of beautiful food at the same time!! Livia is a fantastic guide and shows you around much of the Pest side of the city on this food-based walking tour. As many other reviewers have mentioned, it takes in different food specialities from the matzos soup in the Jewish quarter to Froccs (Spritzer to you and me but don't mention it to a Hungarian!) on the rooftop bar, to the almost compulsory Goulash and Strudel. What really makes the tour great though is Livia's knowledge and personaliuty; within half an hour of starting the tour we felt like we were simply wandering around a new city with an old friend who was showing us around. Can't recommend highly enough, and if you do this trip early in your stay in Budapest it'll give you a great sense of place and allow you to get your bearings to navigate your own way around once Livia has gone!!

Absolutely fantastic tour. Livia was great, she had lots of stories and insights into life in Budapest, history, whats on, where to go that you will never get from the commercial bus tours. A bit quirky but really nice . If you want to fall in love with Budapest - this is the way.
