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!
This tour was an outstanding value.....the young guide was exceptional easy to understand as she shared an abundance of information and history. Access to the synagogue and museums made this a most complete tour. Highly recommend it!
I had been on this tour 6 years ago with another provider. This was much better, a better informed guide and a better walking tour with loads of explanations of where we were along the way.
Fantastic. Petra was amazing in her knowledge. She is vibrant, helpful, interested in being the best guide.
Great tour, very interesting, sad but compelling.
Our Jewish Hwritage Tour was fabulous. Fatima was our young and very pretty guide , who had an unbelievable wealth of knowledge about Budapest's history, and Jewish history. She made our morning's tour into a history lesson, and an experience to remember. I highly recommend booking tours with Viator, and particularly requesting Fatima. My husband and I loved every minute of our time with her.

Fatima did an excellent job and she was partcularly helpful with special need we had my wife is blind and travels with a guide dog which could have posed access problems
Great tour. I was hoping for a more linear historical narrative of the Jews in central Europe but the sites are worth seeing and the guide was knowledgeable.
The 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed this excellent tour. We were the only ones signed up so we were lucky enough to get a private tour. Petra, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and personable. We learned so much about Jewish life in Budapest. This tour was one of the highlights of our trip. The guide at the Jewish Museum was also outstanding. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Budapest. Thank you for putting together such a wonderful tour. And please send our warm regards to Petra.
