Timea was one of the best guides with whom we have ever ever had the pleasure of touring. Her knowledge and insights are exceptional, as is her passion for sharing the history of Jewish life in this region. She was a delight to be with and we discussed topics ranging from hidden symbols to architecture and food. Her English is also perfect. Do not hesitate to book a tour with her. We highly recommend.

Learning about the Jewish people of Budapest and related sites was extremely enjoyable and enlightening.
Timea was a wonderful guide both in her depth of historical knowledge and personal insights and reflection. The tour was so interesting that four hours seemed like just a few minutes.
I would highly recommend Timea and this tour to anyone visiting Budapest.

Timea was an excellent guide through Budapest! We really enjoyed her knowledge and the experiences she shared with us growing up in in the area. He had very valuable insight on life prior to the fall of communism and what life was like.
We visited so many great sites and each had a spectacular story behind it.
We would highly recommend Timea if you are looking to do a tour in Budapest.

We highly recommend this tour! This is a must for anyone interested in seeing Jewish sights in Budapest. Temia is so nice, accommodating, and extremely knowledgeable. Her English is excellent. Today's tour was definitely a highlight of our trip. You can't find a better guide for Budapest or Hungary. We had such a good time, we are doing another tour with her tomorrow of Eastern Hungary.

Our family (me, my husband and our 2,5y-old son) walked with Timea for more than a 5 hours and we were absolutely happy with the tour. All those tiny streets and underground city corners touched our hearts deeply. Thanks, Timea for love and passion to your native city, tales, and attention to details. We definitely want to go back and have more more such great tours with you.

I spent three nights in Budapest at the end of April 2015. I Had the best day and the best tour with Timea from Budapest Jewish Walk ! Not only was she knowledgeable with all the sights and felt them with her heart, but I could see she really knew the place and its people very well, stopping me here and there to catch a quick take out of orange juice in one of the local cafes, a pastry in another and a passing greeting to tour guide friend along the way.! Nothing was too much trouble for her ! When I travel I like to see on tour as much as I can without wasting time and Timi structured my private tour exactly like this for me ! She met me at the airport right in the arrivals hall with her smiling face and my name on a board ..... from that moment on I felt she became my friend ! I have been on many private tours all over Europe and sometimes by the end of a tour I literally want to say to the tour guide - stop, enough, too much talking !!!- It was not like this with Timi ! She was just right ! Kind of let me digest and download the all special places and synagogues, as well as provide all the information in the right mix. You will not be disappointed with her or her tour ! It was a fabulous day and I saw everything I had planned and MORE !

My husband, our 19 year old son and I had the great pleasure and privilege of spending 4 whole days with Timea as she introduced her beloved to city to us in 2014. We had a great time. Everyday was a new experience with everything planned perfectly. we loved exploring the historical sights, as well as the delightful nooks and cranny where the locals hang out. All three of us felt comfortable with Timea right from the first moment and she with us. She is very knowledgeable and very easy going and very sensitive to our needs. She's sweet and gentle, smart and fun. From her website, you can also tell she's very artistically talented too.

I found Tímea's tour on Trip Advisor and she was my first choice after studying the reviews. My wife and I did a half day private tour and the best thing about the tour was the insight she was able to convey about the history of Judaism in Budapest, about how communism effected the people, current life in the city, a tasting of food and treats and even and even an introduction to ruin bars.

Timea provided not only a history but brought stories to life telling her family stories. For example, when she explained the Shoes on The Danube, she read to us an excerpt from her grandmother's diary about witnessing the event. We saw not only the synagogues but hidden sights like a section of the ghetto wall.

She brought to life what it was like growing up and living under communism. As we toured the Jewish Quarter and walked in buildings she explained how homes were taken away and divided and turning them on to numerous apartments. It was an enlightening experience which I never really understood from books and college.

We stopped for Chimney Cakes, a local treat, that was cooked over a wooden fire. We sampled local cuisine for lunch at a ruin bar (a style of bar popular in Budapest).

Timea not only gave a great tour but brought it to life and made it a personal experience. By the end of the tour we felt like Timea was like a lifelong friend having shared so much about her family. That evening she emailed me with suggestions on sights and restaurants she thought we would enjoy during our stay.

I wholeheartedly agree with all the reviews (except the guy who reviewed the wrong tour), this was an excellent tour. I am writing this review upon my return home two weeks later and realize the impact of this tour in that I keep thinking about various insights I learned.

My husband and three sons had the pleasure and good fortune of touring Budapest with Timea. Her beautiful personality, enthusiasm for Budapest, and thorough knowledge of her country and its people made our tour very special, so much so that we decided to tour with her the following day. Seeing Budapest though Timea's eyes was a gift. If you want to see Budapest and you really want to live it, take a tour with Timea.

What a wonderful way to see the city, I knew very little about Budapest upon starting the tour but by the time I was done, I felt satisfyingly knowledgable.

With so many nooks and crannies around town it seems unlikely that anyone should be so well versed in their history and relevance, but this is indeed the person we encountered, both sensitive and thought provoking but with a sense of passion for the city that brings and warmth and togetherness to the tour and to the group.

The main thing I liked was that we were given the freedom to dictate what we wanted to see. I had presumed prior to this that most tours are a system of regular stop off points, that no doubt the host was now bored going through, but this wasn't the case at all. We really could say what we were interested in seeing and then have our curiosity satisfied.

Excellent stuff!
