Description

Experience a Budapest trip like no other, with a breath-taking glimpse into the vibrant life of the Hungarian capital.

Your hotel will be centrally-located, perfect for all the exploration you desire during your Budapest trip. The actual hotel will depend on your travel dates, with comfortable beds, exceptional service and luxurious amenities guaranteed.

After settling in, step out into the historical centre of one of Europe's most stunning capitals. Your personalised itinerary will give plenty of tips on the best bits to visit.

On one night of your stay, we will book you in for dinner at one of the city's most lauded restaurants. This contemporary take on Hungarian cuisine is a unique Budapestian fine dining experience, and the standard is such that the restaurant has been awarded a Michelin star. Consistently rated amongst the best restaurants in Hungary by both local and international media, tasting the best of what the chef has to offer is an evening to savour. The 8-course tasting menu is included in your reservation.

Whilst you're in Hungary, the chance to sample Hungarian wines should not be missed. Since the fall of communism, Hungary has increasingly presented a striking selection of fine wines. However, specialist importers aside, they still aren't easy to come by through the rest of Europe. In a stone labyrinth beneath one of Budapest's 5-star hotels sits a family-run cellar, dedicated to bringing the best Hungarian wines out of the underground.

Work your way through the Sommelier's list of 8 leading premium wines, accompanied with 6 pieces of "pogácsa", Hungarian savory scones topped with cheese. Finish off your tasting by re-visiting your favourite of the 8 wines, or by asking for one final recommendation. It's an eye-opening and tastebud-tingling experience, with the passionate staff always on hand to talk you through this fascinating tidbit of Hungarian culture.

Reviews

  • Tokaji Tokaji

    Our wine cellar experience was exchanged for a visit to one of the best Tokaji producers in the region. Absolutely unforgettable. Don't leave town without taking a few bottles (or cases) with you. Not easy to get around on just English but the truly itinerary made everything a bit easier. Highly recommended.

    One off my bucketlist!

    I love foie gras and little did I know that Hungary's actually one of the world's biggest producers. So needless to say, our meals were indulgent and unforgetable at every turn. Our truly itinerary included several off-the-beaten path markets, which made it even more exciting. Nothing like hoardes of tourists to ruin a romantic weekend away.

  • Hungarian Delight

    Having never visited Hungary before I was very excited to receive this gift for my birthday. Budapest is amazing, the hotel was simply grand, the food was incredible, and the wine tasting was a real treat. Altogether a thoroughly enjoyable weekend, if I had one criticism it would be that I wish lasted longer, there is a lot to do in this rich and varied city.
