I am glad we chose this tour. The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The Great Synagogue was very impressive and the museum guide very good.
Fatima was a terrific guide, she was very knowledgeable and took us on a lovely tour about the city. I totally recommend her and the tour.
We had an excellent tour with our super guide Petra. She was extremely knowledgable, despite not being Jewish. We would highly recommend her to anyone. It was fun, at the right pace, with much interesting information. We would have liked to have gone inside the two other local synagogues in addition, which we had to do independently, afterwards. That was the only disappointment.
Excellent tour and gives a lot of background to an essential part of Budapest history, society and culture. Do the extended tour to get a bit extra from it. Our guide Joel was intimately knowledgeable and involved in his subject, and his family is an example of the Jewish history of Budapest itself, as is the elderly gentleman who conducted the tour of the museum. Definitely worth doing, especially if you are traveling elsewhere in Eastern Europe, and most esoecially Poland.
Excellent tour given by Fatima. Thoroughly enjoyed it 5! Highly recommended .
The guide was fabulous--she was knowledgeable, interesting, thorough and well spoken. The tour was extensive and very worthwhile. We visited all of the important sites as well as lesser known meaningful ones. The tour not only met our expectations, but even exceeded them.
The tour was very informative and interesting. Fatima is a young, personable guide with a great passion and knowledge base regarding the subject matter. The tour was well paced and Fatima answered all questions our small group presented to her. Compared to the cost of the same tour offered through Viking River Cruises, we paid only 1/2 price per each of us. I would highly recommend this tour to my friends.
The tour was excellent! Fatima was knowledgeable, friendly and just a pleasure to spend a few hours with. The group was small, 8-10 people, so it was easy to have conversations with the other members of the group as well as Fatima. I would highly recommend this tour!
This was an excellent tour. I highly recommend it. Our guide was very knowledgeable about Budapest, the Jewish history, and the holocaust as it effected Hungarians. The 2 synagogues we visited were well worth visiting. And the tour through the streets very interesting. I wish I had done this tour on my first day and not my last day in the city.
The tour was wonderful. We never would have learned and experienced as much as we did on our own.
I would recommend the tour to all.
Petra was our guide. She has invaluable knowledge and is very pleasant.
Our tour guide was very kmowledgeable. Enjoyed the tour even in the rain.
Excellent. The tour guide was passionate so it made it all the more interesting, even for non-Jewish.
I went on this tour with 6 friends. Our guide, Joel, did an excellent job of making the past and present Jewish life in Budapest come alive. He is very well informed and relates very well to his audience. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in Jewish life in Budapest.
Joel was brilliant! Very informative and we went to places that we probably wouldn't have seen if we had not been on this tour. It is nice to see these places but unless you have someone telling you the history it means nothing. I would highly recommend this tour.
Our tour guide Joel was absolutely brilliant. He was informative and compassionate and gave us a geniunely gently insight to the Jewish history of Budapest. He even remembered us the next day and took the time to come over and say hello.
Small 4 people group was great. The guide was very knowlagable and gave us a wonderful tour
Wonderful tour with a very knowledgeable guide, Joel. Small group made for an fast but easy pace. Excellent local guide within museum of Grand Synagogue. Other group tours but able to navigate around them. Recommend this tour highly.
Get ready for a lot of walking and learning. Great guide who managed to get us into a place that was closed though it shouldn't have been and the Jewish Museum tour guide was terrific and knowledgeable. Learned a lot about a community that we only read about but it came to life. we also got a feel for the neighborhood around the Jewish quarter.
Excellent tour. Our guide Petra was extremely knowledgeable and friendly.
We really enjoyed this walking tour which included both a short tour of the Jewish quarter and the Dohany Synagogue with all the history of the once large Jewish community in Budapest. Our guide Petra was excellent. The courtyard cemetery and Holocaust memorial including the beautiful weeping willow memorial were very moving. The only glitch was our fault. We assumed the tour met at the Synagogue and it actually started at a memorial statue in a square a few blocks away. We dashed around trying to find it as it's not well marked and just made it in time!
