Half day private tour by car/van


The Jewish heritage tour takes guests around the old Jewish quarter of the capital where in line with the three religious tendencies existing in Hungary, they built three big synagogues. Walking around in the neighborhood guests can get acquainted with the Jewish history, tradition, culture and present of Budapest. This part of Pest, between the three synagogues, still has a special atmosphere, and this ambiance recalls the life of the tragically decimated Jewry and its significant cultural and economic role in Hungarian society. In the "Jewish triangle of Pest" there is together- in one place- the 150 years of the Hungarian Jewish history.
See and visit other Jewish sights by the river Danube in Pest as well as in Buda.

This tour is available for large and private groups as well.
Please request for price quotation.

A Recent Review of this tour

Andrea was so knowledgeable! I had a group of 15 people and we did a minibus Jewish Heritage tour of Budapest. Andrea always had a a smile on her face and she was a treasure trove of information. I needed a vehicle because a few people in my group had walking issues and Andrea arranged for it. It made all the difference. This was my first experience with Tours by Locals and I couldn't have been more pleased. 5 stars for sure!
