Absolutely outstanding tour!! The best part of the tour was the enthusiasm and knowledge of our tour guide. She made the tour memorable beyond the obvious sites.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our August 16 Budapest Jewish Heritage Walking Tour. Our guide, Petra, was outstanding. Her obvious passion and compassion for, and knowledge of the subject matter made the tour very enjoyable, and we learned a lot. We visited the Dohány Street Synagogue also known as the Grand Synagogue, the Kazinczy Street Orthodox Synagogue, and the Rumbach Street Synagogue.
A shout out too, to our docent at the Jewish Museum at the Dohány Street Synagogue.
This tour was a very informative tour. There were only 10 people in our group which made it very easy to hear our tour guide and ask questions.
Joel was vey knowledgeable and personable! We learned history and saw beautiful sites! A perfect tour!
We found the tour to be very interesting and worthwhile. Petra was our tour guide and was very knowledgeable about Jewish life in Budapest. Although she was young she clearly had studied the history of Jewish Budapest.
Fabulous tour of the Jewish Quarter of Budapest. Wonderful tour guide. Met all our expectations and even more.
Our primary guide, Petra, was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We walked in pouring rain but it did not detract from the experience. The guide within the Jewish Museum added significantly to our understanding of Hungarian Jewish history as he explained the artifacts on display.
Excellent tour. Our guide Fatima, was very knowledgable and delivered the tour in an extremely interesting way. We learned a lot and didn't feel how the time passed.

our tour was in the rain - our guide was friendly, nice and easy to understand. She took care of all our group with professionalism!
This was an excellent tour, guided by the very knowledgeable and personable Petra. The itinerary was well organised and nicely paced - not too fast and not too slow. We selected the extended grand tour, which proved very worthwhile giving a great overview of the story of Jewish Budapest. It was also very useful to have included a guided tour of the Jewish Museum, in which the museum guide explained the stories behind a selection of the museum's objects. The grand tour lasted four hours 10am-2pm, with still plenty of time to explore other great features of this lovely city.
Petra was very knowledgeable about all sites on this tour. Very well done.
Fatima was an excellent guide for the Grand Tour. She had a vast amount of information to give us, well organized and could answer any question that we had. She was also extremely personable. There were only 7 of us on the tour so we each had a chance to talk to her during our walk. Each synagogue was amazingly beautiful. We were very glad we took the tour rather than seeing it all on our own. We could get a better understanding of what we were seeing.
Our mini tour within the Jewish Museum was not quite as good. It was very difficult to hear the soft spoken museum guide. It might have been more worthwhile to walk through it on our own.
This tour was great. Lots of interesting things to learn about. Terrific guide. The synagogue was amazing!
Really enjoyed our Jewish cultural walking tour on Sunday July 3. We did the extended tour. It was interesting, lots of information about the area, synagogues, architecture.
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.
