Knowledgeable and friendly guide
Great way to learn about Hungarian food and taste authentic local specialities. We used the knowledge we gained during the rest of our trip to avoid touristy food elsewhere.

Wonderful tour with great guide
We did the Jewish Grand Tour with Petra. She was fabulous, and the tour was great. I was initially concerned as Petra is not Jewish (although her great-grandfather (I think) was), but she was very knowledgeable about the area and the history of the Jews in Budapest and Hungary. Petra was engaging and had a good sense of humor (only when appropriate). I am very glad I had the opportunity to see the Dohany Synagogue and the other parts of the complex.. I was particularly moved by the Weeping Willow (Holocaust) memorial. The Museum was interesting -note that Petra was not our guide on this part of the tour but turned us over to a Museum guide who was quite good. We also went to an Orthodox synagogue, which was beautiful and interesting. In addition to being a great guide, Petra gave us advice about what else to see in Budapest, which was quite helpful. I highly recommend the Grand Tour and Petra.
Private Grand Tour of Jewish Budapest
Fascinating and insightful
Ivan is a great guide - hugely knowledgable on the subject and has some fascinating stories to bring to life the cold war era as you walk around beautiful Budapest.

From the beginning, Ivan had us hooked with tales of the people involved on both sides and how the various move and counter-move activities between the East and West played out - honey-traps, bribery and general coercion tactics.

If you are interested in a unique way to explore the city, absorb the history of the cold war and how it affected Budapest whilst having genuinely interesting conversations about people and politics (including the current state of European affairs (Brexit, Orban, popularism etc.) - you'll be in good hands with Ivan.

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.

Don’t miss this experience
This tour is a one of a kind experience using first source material. Photos and stories of Cold War Budapest as seen through the eyes of US embassy and military personnel. The material Ivan has found along with the interviews he has done will leave you with a much deeper understanding of the 1956 uprising as well as how the Russians and Americans conducted intelligence operations during the 1950s and 60s. This is truly an insider view and should not be missed.

We learned so much
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.

Great way to explore a different side of Budapest
The hike with Laszlo was a fantastic break from the usual tourist activities, seeing the nature and forest around Budapest and being very much off the normal hiking trail. Laszlo has really good knowledge of the area as well as Budapest and Hungary generally and was an absolute pleasure to walk with.
We got some great views of the city from above and overall the hike was wonderful (even if it was very cold!). Thanks Laszlo!

Do the market tour!
Great experience and you won't regret spending a day doing the course. We did the market tour first and I would thoroughly recommend it, we discovered two areas of the market we had never visited before and got lots of tasters.

My recommendation is that you plan some time in your day for a nap afterwards as we were shattered and pleasantly tipsy!

Great opportunity for a traditional Hungarian experience!
Money well spent! Andrew was so helpful and knew so much about the market. He literally showed us everything there was and answered all questions we had with great knowledge of the food there.
The food was delicious and there were many new surprising experiences that we tried.
We thoroughly enjoyed it!
Thank you Andrew,
Kevin and Siobhan.

Even if I am not an expert or very enthusiastic about the topic, I really enjoyed this tour. Why? Because, opposite to what happens in most of the tours, I didn't just hear a general story but a bunch of incredible spy stories in the locations they took place. The guide is also very friendly and you can see how passionate he is about the topic.

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.

I found the tour historically accurate and extremely engaging. Ivan knows how to tell stories. You'll laugh, you'll think, you'll be amazed by normal people who stood up for their beliefs during difficult times and you'll feel pity for the ones forced to sell out in order to survive

Facinating
We found the tour very informative. Our tour guide, Ivan, was easy going and personable and generous with his time and information.
Would definitely recommend and may even sign up again for a second tour.
There’s lots of interesting material to learn about.

Wonderful hike with a wonderful guide!
We loved our day hiking with Lazlo. He was a wealth of knowledge about Hungarian history, and he clearly loves hiking the hills of Budapest. I would highly recommend spending as much time with Lazlo as you can while you are visiting Budapest!
