The tour began with a 20-minute city tour around the Jewish quarter. The subsequent tour was very informative and, including the synagogue (entrance fee is extra), lasted 3.5 hours. Although we have been visiting Budapest regularly for many years and are very knowledgeable, the tour took us to places we did not know yet.

The tour was very informative and carried out with a lot of empathy. The information about what happened in connection with the persecution of the Jews during World War II was objective and made you think and be concerned. I got a good insight into what was happening around the synagogue.

Ezster was the name of our guide and he was very informative and we heard a lot that we didn't know before. She took her time, longer than we booked her. Visiting the ruin bars was also an experience. The tour with Ezster is highly recommended.

The guide was Rifka Kaszas and she was knowledgeable and so personable.

A really great tour!

Super organization and extremely competent tour guide. We recommend.
