About Budapest Jewish Heritage Tours
Budapest has the largest Jewish community in Central Europe, with an active religious, artistic and historical Jewish heritage. Through centuries the Hungarian and Jewish history has been intertwined. Hungarian Jews played and are also playing today an important role in the country's economical, cultural and political life. Since 1995 we show to Budapest visitors the Hungarian and Jewish culture in our country. Our well trained guides have the necessary qualifications to help you understand the Jewish past and present in Budapest and in Hungary. Tours are organized in two languages (English and German). We try to keep the sightseeing tours with small groups of guests.

Last Friday, September 13th, 2019 I took the Budapest Jewish Heritage Walking Tour and it is with disappointment, I have to give it a poor rating . The main guide Barbara was wonderful... knowledgeable, informative and with a warm personality. But the Jewish Museum guide the group of 11 was passed to, for a great length of precious time was terrible . She spent the entire time on the Jewish Calendar, ignoring all the articles on display. 5 out of the 11 tour members left her portion of the tour, and went downstairs to wait for Barbara to continue . When asked to describe the articles, she told me that she doesn’t do that on her tour ! She also skips the entire 2nd floor which I found by wondering off ... very important artifacts on that floor with descriptions! Barbara was great ... Museum guide awful !

Interesting tour with knowledgeable tour guide. Started in the Synagogue where the histoyof the Synagogue was explained and then moved outside to the cemetery contains the remains of members of the Jewish population who died in the ghetto in Budapest towards the end of WW11. A great tour which is highly recommended. The inside of the Synagogue is beautiful.

We had a wonderful tour with Chilla. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the Jewish people in Budapest and Hungary up until present day. The tour was informative and interesting. It was the best tour we had in Budapest and one of the best tours we have had in any city.

I had an overwhelming tour instructed by Barbara (Barby) in english. She covered historical issues and mile stones in a comprehensive way that made events almost visual. I have a warm recommendation on Barbara and her tour. Enjoy
