Excellent tour that tackles a difficult and emotional area very well indeed. There was a huge amount of information to absorb and the Guides were patient with those of us with very limited knowledge of Jewish traditions. Only "downside" was that the synagogue was extremely busy......I was there on a Sunday morning....there is perhaps a quieter day.
The bus tour gives a brief, informative overview of the city's major sites. The best part is in the middle with the tour of Prague Castle.
The guide was great. He was informative and flexible. His knowledge of the area was amazing. Would definite recommend the tour. The only suggestion I would make is that he should of had a sign informing us he was there for our tour.
My wife and I booked this tour and despite the rain, this was a truly memorable experience. We were fortunate in several ways. Fist of all we were the only 2 that showed up. In addition we were extremely fortunate to have as our guide Roland Hajd who was very knowledgeable and accommodating. In fact he was able to guide us back to our cruise ship by offering to take the public tram with us to within a short walking distance to our river boat.
Special mention to Esther our tour guide at the Doheny Synagogue.

Highly recommend this tour. Tour guide was really informative and really interesting. No negatives, loved this tour!!
The tour was expertly conducted and informative and not hurried
The young girl who conducted the tour of the Jewish museum was very informative and she had a great knowledge of Jewish history and customs
We have been on two previous Viator tours and if the case arises in the future would not hesitate to use them again

our tour guide Roland, was sensitive, highly informative, and interesting. He led our Jewish Tour with great empathy and understanding of the history behind the holocaust. My 81 year old mother and I enjoyed this tour immensely and recommend it to anyone interested in the Jewish Heritage of Budapest. We went back at night for a shabbat service in the Synagogue.
It is a really good tour. Guide was really knowledgeable. Highly recommended for people who has interest in the Jewish history.
We took the extended tour (forget its exact title) and enjoyed the information our tour guide provided. The tour was the basics of inside the main Jewish area of Budapest. Would have liked a little more of seeing contemporary Jewish sites - current additional synagogues in the area, for example.
The guide was very sweet ...her English was good, she knew her script, but not more. She wasnt invested in the site. The docent who took us through the Jewish Museum was awesome..during this time, the vigor guide waited downstairs.
Also, our voucher said we would get a drink and pastry in a Jewish cafe in the quarter...we didnt. the tour ended on the synagogue/museum grounds.
the museum and the synagogue were great sites...glad we visited.
This tour explained many basic facts about the Jewish religion, so as a Jew, I found it rather boring, but the others on my tour were not Jewish and so they managed to learn new things. The information about how Jews were treated during the Second World War was fascinating but that was only a small portion of the tour. I wish we had walked through the streets of the Jewish quarter, that was kind of what I initially expected. I'm afraid I found this tour to be rather disappointing, but if you are not familiar with the Jewish religion then I think you might like it more. Our guide never took us to any Jewish bakery, as was stated in the tour description. Also, the tour was scheduled to start for 2pm, but the tour guide started the tour at 1:45 and then was rude because "we were late" even though we arrived at 2pm on the dot. I wish I could give more stars but I'm afraid three stars bests reflects the experience.
