Most of the time while we were in Budapest, we heard and saw the usual tourist things. There were castles and churches, all of which were beautiful. There was a lot of talk about Hungary's role in WW2, seemingly dancing around certain topics. But it...More

Hi Mary, thanks so much for your kind comments. It sounds like your time with our docents helped you really dig into the story of Budapest and, more broadly, of Hungary. Hope to have you with us in more of our Context cities soon!

What a fabulous tour of the Jewish section of Budapest. Our tour guide Esther Susan was so interesting and brought to life the history of the Jews. Her knowledge was so deep and yet she shared with color.
