If you feel that wine tasting is just one part of your holiday, I recommend you some extra cultural attractions and programs. I selected these upgrades as they can represent that region’s special character.
You can find below typical Hungarian artisans like the Herend Porcelain Manufactury or special interesting places what you cannot miss if you visit this part of Hungary like the Aggtelek Cave.
These programs can challenge your soul and mind before a wine tasting or give a relief after that.
If you’re interested other leisure programs accompanied by your wine tasting please feel free to contact me and let’s find the most valuable time for you.
If you have a taste for strong spirits, you should not pass on this: a tasting of the essential Hungarian fruit brandy, pálinka, as distilled by local, artisanal distiller.

The rivers Bodrog and Tisza meet at Tokaj, and their union has long nourished a unique ecosystem in both the ecological and the cultural sense. The only regular floodplain in Hungary, the beautiful, undisturbed marshland is home to many endangered water birds, reptiles and mammals, while it also requires a special way of interaction by the people inhabiting it. During this canoe tour, you get an opportunity to not only to explore the region, but also to discover the special way it has formed the lives of its inhabitants, their agricultural, hunting and fishing techniques, and their thinking, for hundreds of years and generations.

The Baradla Domica cave system in Hungary - not far from Tokaj - is one of the longest researched, visited for centuries for its speleothems. As part of the Aggtelek Karst, the cave system extends more than 25.5 km (25,500 m) and includes the 5.3 km (3.3 mi) Domica cave. The cave has a natural entrance at Aggtelek, at the foot of a high white cliff that overlooks the edge of the village. It has an articulated, meandering main channel 7 km (4.3 mi) long, with a rock tunnel, on average, 10 m (33 ft) wide and 7 to 8 m (23 to 26 ft) high with a few giant caverns. The main branch has several short and long connecting side branches. A significant part of the cave has varied colors and shapes providing an unparalleled spectacle of decorative stalactites. Subterranean river waters run through the main branch at times of flood. Natural entrances to the cave have been open from ancient times, and there are traces of Neolithic occupation. No matter whether your interest is geological, archeological, or you simply like nature's majesty - you won't forget this cave tour in a while!
