Highlight or Our Tours In Budapest With Anita!
mahog1960
, Jul 2019
Anita arrived at our hotel to take us on our Jewish Waking Tour and we have to say our tour with her was the HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TRIP. Our day was filled with emotions as she took us on a train to the Jewish Quarter and walked the area to the Great Dohany Street Synagogue. She talked about the history of the neighborhood and all the other areas we walked through. On our tour in the Great Synagogue it was an emotional one for me and I started to shed some tears so she knew how deep this went. She gave us our time to regroup and then continued to talk about the history in detail. We saw the Emanuel Tree or Tree of Life Sculpture which has the victims names inscribed on each leaf. She told us of the artist and how to this day they still come out and engrave names on the leaves when they learn of a new victims name. We went to the memorial cemetery. She then took us to Kazinczy Orthodox Synagogue, Szabadsag Square memorial park, Shoes on the Danube and more. We saw so much in the one day it was truly amazing. We went to a little kosher pastry shop and sat with her and chatted while eating a delicious FLODNI pastry and coffee which was included in tour. I asked her questions on her heritage and she said she was a Hungarian and studied History, but truly was drawn to Jewish History of her country and has a passion to always increase her knowledge and share that with others. We walked quite a bit and learned so much more than expected. She has passion for what she does and meant so much to me. We were taking a Jewish Heritage River cruise with Uniworld after our Budapest visit which we did on our own. In all of our travels throughout our Jewish Heritage trip with the river cruise, their own tour guides could not hold a candle to Anita. Anita surpassed all our expectations and she was lovely young lady, She went above and beyond what we expected. She gave us an experience of a lifetime which we always remember and cherish. You must take this tour and ask for Anita ! Perfect to take your children on this tour and show them so much in a day.

Our private guide Edit was most pleasant and very knowledgeable. She gave us a comprehensive history of the Jewish community through the centuries, without overwhelming us. She brought the whole area of the Jewish Quarter to life with her vivid descriptions. We were able to visit every landmark (synagogues, museum, monuments etc) at our pace, (without queues), taking in her interesting narrative. She was also eager to answer all our questions. We enjoyed the interaction very much.

Our guide Tomas was informative, pleasant and led us on a nice walk through Jewish Budapest and the garden of the Synagogue. Inadvertently, we visited on 9 / 11. We were inside the synagogue and the designated guide in English had barely started to brief us when there was a security alert an unclaimed bag and we were obliged to vacate though allowed in the garden, where incidentally, a modern memorial sculpture stands, the work of Tomas's Grandfather !
