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.
Tour guide was the best ever. So informative and just a pleasure to spend four hours with. Added so much to our experience
It was a perfect tour.. My guide was energetic and so helpful..Spoke beautifully and took the time to answer any questions we had. This was the only tour I took in Budapest and so glad I did. I hope you enjoy your time there.
Excellent tour, excellent guide, lots of great information, accessible and interesting for Jews and non-Jews.
We really enjoyed this informative tour. Petra did a wonderful job and was very knowledgeable. We would highly recommend it.
Tour was great. Unfortunately your company never sent me the information on the meeting site. We waited for 30 minutes in the wrong place. Your guide made up the time for us.
Fatima was excellent! Very knowledgeable, patient, and enduring. Highly recommend this excursion for everyone.
Had a wonderful experience with a fabulous young lady as our guide who couldn't have been more enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and enlightening
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.
