Description

Jewish heritage

During this basic tour we are trying to introduce our visitors to the Hungarian and Jewish culture in our country. Our English/ German speaking guides are well trained, and have the necessary qualification to help you understand the Jewish past and present in Hungary and Budapest. Our tours are in English and German language, and we aim to keep our sightseeing tours with small groups of people. To best fit your needs, we prepared three types of heritage tours
