Discovering Timea’s Jewish Walking Tour was indeed a lucky find before our trip to Budapest. Several years ago, we visited the Great Synagogue and thought we had learned something about Jewish life in Budapest. This visit, we saw Budapest through the eyes of someone who has lived her life and experienced her family’s history in this remarkable Jewish community. Timea bought to life the Hungarian Jewish experience by sharing stories about her family and other members of what was once a vibrant Jewish community. For the first time, we understood just how assimilated Jews were into Hungarian life in the century before World War II. As we toured the area of the former Ghetto, Timea guided us through three synagogues (in such a way that we avoided crowds and tours), pointed out important landmarks and shared stories. With a touch of humor and a recognition of reality, Tamea shared what it is like to live in Budapest today. At the end of the tour, Tamea drove us to the famous Old Jewish Cemetery on Kozma Street. It is unusual for a Jewish Cemetery because it is filled with sculpted figures and elaborate mausoleums in the art nouveau style. And, there, through Timea’s insights and our own eyes, we understood what we had seen during our tour: The Jewish Community of Budapest was remarkable before the War and, despite the effort to rid Hungary of its Jewish population towards the end of World War II, continues to be so today. Thank you, Timea, for a day we will always remember, and we highly recommend this tour.

I highly recommend Tímea! She accommodated our student group of 16 and was very flexible. We saw the Great Synagogue, stumbling stones, the Gozsdu Courtyard, the last remaining piece of the ghetto wall, the Rumbach Synagogue, and the Kazinczy Synagogue (among many other things). After the official tour, she provided Budapest recommendations to our students. In addition, she provided further reading and resources for us to reflect on afterward. Her life, perspective & personal connection are invaluable! She welcomed questions and made the tour very interactive. She is extremely kind, personable, and approachable. We are grateful for the experience!

Timea was an amazing guide! Besides being extremely knowledgeable, interesting, well spoken and warm, her own life experience and family history made the tour far more personal. We’re so happy we found her online!

We are so grateful to Timea for the incredible tour of the Jewish Quarter and other areas of Budapest. She gave our trip a much deeper meaning through her vast knowledge of the history of the city. This awareness comes from a deep connection to the city, as she grew up in Budapest, and generations of her family have been rooted there.
