I generally am not one to take a tour, nor am I one to write a review. My boyfriend and I took two of the walking tours - History of Communism with Balasz and Art Nouveau with Miklos. Both tours were EXCELLENT. The tours ended up being individual - just the two of us and our guide. They spent hours... More

What better way to understand more about Budapest than to be shown around by your own personal Budapesti. Miklos was a knowledgeable, humorous and patient guide. He manages to tailor his talks to the interests and capabilities of his audience. He truly brought the history of Budapest alive. If you'd like to find out why it is that Budapestis never... More

May 1st we were in Budapest. I was concerned because it was a holiday about where we might eat dinner. Made arrangements with Fungarian for dinner at restaurant and a language lesson. It was perfect -- we talked about food, culture, and language. Our guide spoke great English and helped us learn a bit of Hungarian. The food was delicious... More

I booked my Fungarian classes at rather short notice and the first thing that struck me was the quick response I got to my enquiry - a great service! Miklós really took into consideration my individual wishes and needs and suggested the most suitable classes for me: My first 3-hour session was a walk-and-talk tour, where I got more familiar...

My sister and I took the two-hour cafe class on the first day of our 10-day trip around Hungary. It was the perfect way to start our trip and really enriched our time in Hungary. Miklos was great about squeezing a lot of information into a short time period and we left the class ready to use what we learned.... More

Used the metro - lines 1, 2, and 3; Tram 6; and Bus 7. Our guide was Balazs - local from Pest. Easy to arrange a meeting point and was flexible - by way of text message - to alter our rendezvous. It was a terrific introduction to the city. Went at our pace and vert accommodating to our interests.

If, like me you are interested in learning about the history of Hungary and its capital, then I urge you to give Fungarian tours a go. I chose the Art Nouveau tour because I am passionate about architecture and the Habsburg dynasty. Miklos suggested where to meet, helped with purchasing public transport tickets, gave me a detailed account of every... More

I'm staying in Hungary for 6 weeks and when I first got to the Jewish district alone, I have lots of questions and wonder as Budapest is well-known in the Jewish culture, therefore I booked a tour with Miklòs. He did a great job introducing the history, lifestyle and customs of Jewish in Hungary. On the other hand, the confectionary... More

Miklòs did a great job introducing us to the Hungarian language. We took the 1 hr language lesson and have used our new skills to order coffee, beer, and wine, greet people as we enter their shops, and thank them. It definitely makes you feel like you are more a part of the interaction and not just a tourist.

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
