My focus for this vacation was to visit and learn about the Jewish culture in central Europe. I was not disappointed. The tour guide was helpful and knowledgeable. I appreciated the care taken to respect the Jewish history and culture. I took the grand tour because I wanted to learn about and experience the culture of the area.
The guide was very knowledgeable about this area of Budapest and the experiences and history of the Jewish people. I am not Jewish but found the whole tour very interesting. Visiting the synagogue and seeing all of the different parts of the Jewish quarter was fascinating.
We had a great tour guide who was very knowledgeable and interesting. The only dull part of the tour was inside an ancient Jewish temple that was being restored. It was warm in there and the talk was long - heads were bobbing. The rest of it was amazing, and of course emotional.
Wonderful tour, very knowledgeable guide, express entry to the synagogue with our group and pre paid tickets
The walking tour was absolutely amazing. Our guide was very knowledgeable and engaging and made the experience very enjoyable. We opted for the extended tour and visited an orthodox synagogue followed by dessert and coffee at a local kosher bakery. Would highly recommend this walking tour!
This is a must and our guide Fatima for so good and knowledgeable we loved her:
Great tour. Guide had impressive knowledge of the history right up to the present of the Jewish community in Hungary. Rombach Street Synagogue was amazing and so sad that it is still in such disrepair.
This tour was terrific made even better by our guide Orsolya Ursula. It worked out that the tour only had 4 guests. I am not sure if the rain and cold had caused the group to become smaller. We saw many sights in the Jewish Quarter and had a special docent guide us in The Jewish Museum. Couldn't have asked for a better guide. Try to get Orsolya!!
Petra was a wonderful guide, My husband and I took the extended tour and it covered everything. We really enjoyed this tour and she made sure not to loose anyone. The next day I took a tour with a different company and the guide was so bad, He lost us and the group left without us! Viator is a good company, They use young and enthusiastic tour guides. Take this tour you will not regret it.
Took the extended tour yesterday with our guide Joel. Very much enjoyed the tour. Joel was an excellent and informative guide and went out of his way to make sure we saw everything.
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.
