Tour and tour guide were both outstanding.
Anna was an outstanding guide. The tour lasted about 6 hours and included stops at different synagogues, historical sites and several charning authentic Hungarian restaurants, cafes and wine bar. Eat a light breakfast because you want to be able to enjoy all of the delicious food on the tour. Note that this tour does not include a tour of the largest/oldest synagogue in Budapest with the organ so plan that separately reviewed separately by me in Tripadvisor. Enjoy!
We really enjoyed this tour. It is expensive, but you get great value from an experienced and knowledgable local guide and lots of good food thrown in. We were the only two booked on the day we went, so it was in effect personalised and tailored to our interests. The history and the cultural narrative is fascinating and it was a treat to see the Orthodox synagogue complex. The entrance fee for the Great Synagogue is not included in the price, but we were so inspired by the tour that we went back to visit it on another day. And the tips about other places to visit, things to eat and books to read were much appreciated. Thank you.
The tour was amazing! Elza was an amazing, warm, and friendly guide who'd I recommend to anyone. She went above and beyond to show us a side of Budapest we would have missed if we hadn't gone
Our guide Anna was terrific. Easygoing, informed and informative, fun. Learned a lot about Jewish food and culture. Food wa terrific too
We loved it. Anna was our tour guide and she spoke in detail not only about the history of Budapest particularly Jews in Budapest and the origin of the foods all of which was excellent but she gave an irreverent insider's view of the city and country today. All in all it was an outstanding experience.
Ana, the guide was fabulous. Information about Budapest, Hungary as well as food. Ate so much we skipped dinner.
What a treat! It ended up being just my wife and me, and our lovely guide walked us arround, rain notwithstanding, for closer to 5-6 hours than less. Great talks, a really interesting visit, good food, lots of inspiration for the rest of our four days in Budapest. We highly recommend this tour and suggest to do it on your first day, it litterally opened the gates of the city to us.
We were the only 2 people on the tour and the guide was really excellent and very knowledgable. She ensured that we saw everything we were interested in seeing, and went out of her way to make it a memorable experience. On the downside, the food we were given just snacks was very disappointing as none of it was particularly Jewish food and it was not very tasty so not as described when we booked the tour.
