      An interesting hike with knowledgeable and pleasant guide Petra. The museum was informative and interesting. However, there was a lot of information and some time for questions from the group. The synagogue, Raoul Wallenberg's place and the Tree of Life were places where the guide told about the heritage the Jewish Hungarians carry. A walk through parts of the Jewish area gave more space to ask questions and talk about questions that arose during the walk. Very interesting and rewarding activity!

      Charming guide and v informative

      We really enjoyed our tour. Our guide was very informative and charming. I just have one criticism and that’s on the check in process. I’ve done over 30 over these tours over the years and this is the first one I’ve failed to find the guide! The central phone number didn’t answer for 10 mins and then gave me a very bad description of the guide! But the actual tour was great.

      - guide Sandor very nice and friendly - he could give interesting information and adressed individual questions - instead of visit in museum we would have liked to have a walking tour through Jewish district - guide in museum spoke very fast, we could not understand her English - she was very knowledgeable, but gave information just like in a row, maybe not interactive enough
