A Recent Review of this tour

We selected the Budapest Jewish Heritage tour to learn more about the history of the Jewish people in Hungry. We are not Jewish and Andrea did a great job explaining items and customs along with the rich heritage in the Budapest area. We didn't have time on our tour to get down to the water's edge to see the Holocaust memorial at the river with Andrea, but we went the next day. She strongly encouraged us to see it. Thanks Andrea for the in-depth tour. Highly recommended tour.
