  • Excellent!!! the tour guide spoke English, Greek and German was FABULOUS opened our eyes to so much. No regrets even in cold weather!! MY DH and I knew much about the history but learned so much more. Take the grand tour - it is worth the extra money and time. We had 6 people in tour. Take it if you are in Budapest- A must!!!!

  • Great tour,we had amazing tour guidePetra,she was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information about Jewish history in Budapest.We visited the most beautiful synagogue and Jewish museum in Budapest,had delicious traditional cake , walked around Jewish quarter and learned a lot about the holocost.It was the best tour we had and Ill strongly recommend this to everyone.

  • We were met by the guide at the time and place indicated on voucher. She was very pleasant and spoke good English. The tour was very good and we would definitely recommend it. One problem was that strangers joined the group and elbowed out those paying for the guide. We needed headphones to better hear the guide and avoid this problem

  • The portion of the tour inside the large synagogue was conducted by a tour guide from the synagogue. The portion done outside was all right, though not particularly memorable. Would have worked better to limit the group size to engage more.

  • I recommend this informative tour.

  • Well worth having a guided tour of this beautiful synagogue!
    Our guide was so knowledgeable and we really learned a lot!

  • We had a very knowledgeable and personable guide. At the end of the tour she provided us with suggestions for other things to do in Budapest. The experience was well worth the cost. It was one of the best tours we took during our three weeks in Europe.

  • Excellent tour.

  • This was an excellent tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. Petra walked us through the Jewish community and synagogues and we ended up at a kosher bakery for a pastry at the end of the tour. We took the 4 hour tour and the time passed quickly. Highly recommend this tour.

  • Execellent in depth tour. First tour guide took us through the Dohany Synagogue, and its cemetery and grounds stopping a few times to recap the history. Amazing. Since we took the extended tour to the other synagogues which we recommend highly, another guide took over and walk us through the area. Once again the depth of knowledge of these guides was greatly appreciated.
