  • Guide was prompt and set a comfort level. We cannot speak more highly of her knowledge and pace.

  • Petra was our tour guide for 4 1/2 hrs. We specifically requested her because of reviews we read about her. Our experience exceeded expectations! We thought the length might be too long especially since we were going to be skipping lunch. Not so. The time flew. We visited all sights with the exception of the childrens' shoes, which is not located in the ghetto area. The tour was an easy stroll, with Petra sharing information throughout. She is an excellent communicator and very well informed. Petra was sensitive to my interest in pausing along the way to take pictures. We visited two synagogues, Doheny and the NeoCon, as well as walked by another where restoration has just begun. Petra clearly has a passion for her work and we highly recommend her. I told Petra that I considered her the Queen of the area since everyone we encountered in the museums and elsewhere knew her and greeted her with a smile. She has some wonderful tips for places to eat in the quarter and we leave it to you to ask her. Please know while we toured with a heavy heart because of family history this visit was especially important to us and Petra sensed that. The tour guide in the Jewish Museum who is an older gentleman was also was very special.

  • We had a most awesome and knowledgeable young woman named Petra as our guide . Her knowledge of history and that of Judaism was amazing, her attitude friendly, and she paced the tour for my husbands age. She actually took an hour longer because we were so interested in everything. We had been concerned that 4and a half hours might be too long, but it was slow paced, and we could sit down in many of the places while she explained things.We would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in the history of the Jews in Europe and Hungary in particular . Very well presented and organised. Thank you. Jan and Ian Tait. Sydney, N.S.W Australia.

  • Our tour guide, Viktoria, was wonderful. She was very knowledgable and full of information about the buildings and history of the Jewish quarter. We were disappointed however that this tour did not include some Jewish sites such as the shoes on the Danube and the Holocaust museum. When we booked there should have been an option to add these sites on for a charge, and we would have happily done so. We did add them on our own, but would have liked and expected them to be part of this tour. Nonetheless the tour was a good value for the money and gave us a good overview of the Jewish Heritage of Budapest. We would give the guide 5 starts, and are giving 4 because Viator did not have the option for a more inclusive tour.

  • A great experience and definitely a highlight of out time in Budapest.
    Or guide was a lovely person who was extremely knowledgeable and personable.
    We would most highly recommend this tour in this wonderful city.

  • Victoria was extremely knowledgeable and provided us with a beautiful experience.

  • We were, indeed, picked up at our ship's dock. Our guide, Victoria, was wonderful. Our guide at the Museum was barely audible and truly difficult to hear her. We were all disappointed after the tour, when we found out Victoria was leaving us, and we were responsible for getting ourselves back to our ship.

  • What an amazing tour. I dont remember our tour guide unfortunately but she was fantastic. I even found names of my grandparents on the tree that is out the back of the Synagogue. Worth doing

  • This tour was fantastic. We were guided by Petra who gave us a personalized and energetic, informative and exciting tour. We learned so much, and got insights and stories as well as seeing intriguing sights. We also got advice on things to continue to see and discover. I would recommend everyone to be guided by Petra and the Private Jewish Heritage Tour.

  • Fatima was so interesting, personable, and knowledgeable - I had so many Ah Ha moments with her -
    my husband and I were so happy we took your tour -
    Thanks for making such great memories
