We were picked up at our hotel by Alex, a very courteous and informative tour guide. He answered all our questions and didn't overwhelm us with info and we learned so Much!!! Interesting was the fact his grandparents had lived thru the Holocaust, some in the ghetto and some in hiding. We visited the synagogue and gardens, the ghetto, parliament and also the Shoes on the Danube monument. I would highly recommend this tour as part of your Budapest trip.

Amazing Tour With Patricia
What an incredible tour with a fabulous tour guide, Patricia. The information provided was outstanding. We extended our tour with Patricia for an extra hour and a half, and saw the Jewish Quarter in depth. Patricia went above and beyond, pointing out places of interest in a knowledgeable and humorous way.
I would highly recommend this tour.

Excellent
Although it took some time to locate the group who were joining our walking tour, once we got going it was very good, with Borsca a knowledgeable guide. First the museum, with a good outline of Jewish traditions and holidays, and then the Great Synagogue. The cemetery and gardens are a reminder of a dark period of history which must never be forgotten. As part of the Grand Tour, we then walked through the Jewish Quarter, now home to many trendy cafes and bars, a beautiful Art Nouveau Synagogue, finishing up with cake. Highly recommended.

Lovely night Danube cruise with wine tasting
Completely lived to all our expectations. Had some amazing two hours cruising along Danube river after the sunset. City looks absolutely stunning from the boat. Wine was good and staff was really friendly. Also you can ask musicians to play a song of your choice.
Worth the money!

Great experience for my wife's bday!
In Budapest celebrating my wife's birthday. We went to the baths and then finished the night doing this wine cruise. All seven wines tasted great (I'm no expert though) and the view from the river of all the major sites along the Danube can't be beat. Live music was great too. The only thing some might want to keep in mind is that you are at a table with about 8-10 other people and there are multiple cruises on the boat (beer tour, dinner, etc.). I would say definitely eat beforehand so that you can enjoy the wine and so there's no resentment about all the food that's set out that you don't have access to. Recommended!

Wonderful experience at the chocolate museum
We loved our trip to the chocolate museum. We took a taxi from the city center. It was about a 25 minute drive. Our tour guide, Erika gave us a wonderful tour. We learned the history of chocolate in Hungary. There is a great display of chocolate packaging over the last hundred years. We got to make our own chocolate tarts. There were plenty of chocolate samples during the tour. The tour ended with tea and more samples of chocolate. The museum is located in a beautiful renovated residence. Erika was very knowledgeable it was a delight to take her tour. If you love chocolate you will enjoy this experience. Highly recommended!
