What To Expect
Get the local's point of view on Budapest's Christmas traditions and culture while seeing some of the city's best sights. Your guide will walk you through 3 Christmas markets showing you Hungarian handicrafts, trinkets, and souvenirs as well as the local foods and sweets on trade.

Halfway through the tour you'll get the chance to relax a bit while sipping away famous wines from Hungary such as Bull's Blood and Tokaj.
At the end of the tour we invite you for a hot wine and then leave you in the biggest Christmas market on Vorosmarty square to self-explore and do some holiday shopping. Also off this square is the famous walking street Vaci where many shops can be found for more traditional shopping.
Our tour is intended to give you a short intro to Budapest and orient you in some of the sights. This will show you around the markets to enhance your shopping experience and make it more enjoyable.
