Jewish Essential Tour (1,5 hours)

Budapest has the biggest Jewish community in Middle - Eastern Europe, with an active religious, artistic and historical heritage. Through centuries the Hungarian and Jewish history has been so entwined that it is almost inseparable. Jews played and play an important role in the country’s economical, cultural and political life.

Our company was created in 1995 and since then we try to show our visitors the Hungarian and Jewish culture in our country. Our English speaking guides are well trained, and have the necessary qualification to help you understand the Jewish past and present in Hungary and in Budapest. Our tours are in one (English) language, and we try to keep the sightseeing tours with small groups of people. To customize your needs we prepared three types of heritage tours.

 Free date Gift Voucher 

Give the gift of an unforgettable experience!

We give you the opportunity to surprise your loved ones with a wonderful experience by purchasing a free date ticket for them to use whenever they like.

It gets harder and harder to smile when we unwrap the umpteenth pair of socks or some other similarly unimaginative gift. Holidays, birthdays and anniversaries shouldn't be about hastily purchasing a predictable gift for our friends and family. In the past few decades studies have suggested that the joy one feels when receiving material presents, even if they are the long desired smart phone or a super expensive pair of designer shoes, doesn't last very long, especially when compared to experience gifts.

We offer you the opportunity to give the gift of our program that the recipient may enjoy at a time of his or her choosing within in a year. We request that ticket holders let us know a short time beforehand when we can expect them!
