Treasure hunt in Budapest

This activity is a unique way of letting the guests to discover the city by themselves by completing the set route and achieving points along the way. The groups are divided into smaller teams and given a care package with itinerary, map and public transportation tickets. Teams have to answer the questions, talk to Hungarian people, use public transport and collect the treasures at the stations. At the end of the treasure hunt, the points from the correct answers and activities are counted and the winning team gets memorable gifts.

 

Cooking course in the Grand Market Hall

Not all incentives have to have the competitive nature, sometimes it is better just to have the team building while preparing what everyone loves: homemade food. The group is being split up into teams that are given the shopping list for their future typical Hungarian dishes (to increase the fun of the shopping, the list can be written in Hungarian) and they have to buy all the ingredients themselves. Professional chefs will help and give advice to make a delicious meal of 4-6 courses. At the end of the evening, participants dine together and get a chance to taste the other groups’ creations.
