About Budapest Jewish Walk
Just a short introduction about my most popular tours: The Jewish Tour is about heritage, history, traditions, cuisine, awesome architecture and exciting insight into the revival of the Jewish way of life in Budapest. With the Classic one I show you sights and places of Budapest made unique through personal and off-path guidance. Up-to-date, informative, authentic walks for anyone. The Family Tour is the child-friendly combo of a walking tour and having fun with your kids in and out of Budapest. The most flexible tour type according to the kids’ needs. Share your interests and likes with me and I plan you a tour. Why wouldn't you try it?

If you don’t know the history behind Budapest’s Jewish Quarter, you could miss out on a lot while exploring on your own. Opt instead to travel with a private guide during this private Budapest Jewish Quarter tour, and listen to stories about the area, including its part in WWII. Budapest hotel pickup and drop-off are included for added convenience.

Discover Budapest through the eyes of a local on a private 5-hour tour. It's a great option for travelers who only have one day in town or those wanting to orient themselves to the capital city for future exploring. The exclusive excursion begins at your accommodation and continues to Andrassy Avenue, the Castle District, and more. Listen as your engaging guide shares entertaining anecdotes and lesser known history.

Timea does half and full day private tours. Check with her on her rates, and person limits. Timea was the only guide we worked with.
