About Rockhoppers Private Tours
A group of Budapest intellectuals led by an old-fashioned (or new-fashioned?) funny man, a retired professor Zoltan; while the colleagues are his friends, experts in history and culture. Please, visit us at rockhoppers.eu, and facebook and instagram, too. We share our knowledge about our city. OUR CITY, which is a place that one would not just either love or hate, but do love AND hate. Instead of offering boring schoolbook tours, we tailor them to the individual interest and personalities of the participants; and we do it in several languages. We make you an insider of Budapest on the tour. We are waiting for you as a “new citizen of Budapest”! Our customers mainly loved the Classic, the Jewish, the Communist and the Danube Bend tours most; however, we can take you to a 16th century Ottoman Turkish bath or try to find traces of your ancestors in Hungary, and we have several other tours, such as The Countryside in a Compressed File, Art Nouveau, or to take the best Budapest photos...

Overview
A real unique thing of the world! A 16th century Ottoman Turkish bath fed by natural thermal springs!

Rudas Bath was built by the Ottoman Turks in the 16th century at the place that later got the name: BUDAPEST.

While Turkish baths in Istanbul or other places in Turkey are in short of water, so they have to carry water to the bath and generate steam of it, Budapest has a lot of hot springs; so beside enjoying steam and heat, you may even soak into the pools of various temperature and chemical composition!

Rockhoppers will introduce you to the way how to use the bath, and charge your batteries for a week; and if you have a chance to return, you can prolong the effect.

The hottest pool in the Rudas is radioactive, but don’t worry, it is well below the harmful level, however, it has rejuvenescent effect! However, even if you do it once, the result will be noticeable.

We did a private tour throught the Jewish quarter and higly benefitted from the local knowledge, "eye for detail" and authenticity of our guide who did not only give us some historical remaks along the way but also embedded the tour into overall Hungarian history and current political livel. Highly recommended.

We went on a tour with Rockhoppers, and did not have to be disappointed. We were given a real lecture on the history of the Jewry in Hungary until the beginning of the 20th century and afterwards, up to now. Illustrations were the temples and houses with Jewish elements and stories. There were no questions without reply. Very professional! Thank You!

Zoltan has a very deep knowledge of his home country and took us to places the average tourist never would see. He gave us a deep understanding of the history and the politics of Hungary and how this affected the Jewish life at that time (and vice versa). He showed us details and explained their Jewish background - things we would have certainly missed out, just strolling the streets. The highlight was the visit of the Synagoge and Zoltans humor explaining Hungarian philosophy of dealing with "challenges".

We had a 2 hour tour as a part of a company event around the Jewish quarter. Zoltan knew so much that we almost run out of time since his way of finding hidden spots and Know-how about the history of Budapest and Hungary as a whole was just great. We had a coffee with him as a wrap-up in the end. :)

The coffe time was a real supplement - for me - to the tour. The discussion made everyone even more open to interact about the topic. Thank you! Zoltan
