    Very nice activity, with a very friendly, very talented guide as she told us that it was her very first time. Hats off to her! We had a good laugh and it was super good. The activity is animated by a power point, with tasting of sausages, cheeses, local peppers. And a little tasting of a really great white and red wine!

    Nice activity where the guide was good at explaining and showing what the different products were .. it was everything from honey, to wine, bread, meat, cheese etc. .. everything you could want and everything locally. The guide was good at telling you where to go and what she personally thought was best, in relation to restaurants and markets

    We can definitely recommend this tasting. We were received in a rustic cellar, which is sufficiently heated in winter. We were lucky enough to take part in the tasting on site as a couple. In about 1.5 hours you will learn the basics of Hungarian specialties and wine and wine-growing regions. We were able to taste cheese, salami and numerous other specialties. There were a few surprises. Schnapps can also be tasted for a small fee. The host Gabor Glasner was very educated and was able to tell us many details in German. We also thank him for pointing out the delicious café. Absolutely to be recommended !!
