About
Budapest has the largest Jewish community in Central Europe, with an active religious, artistic and historical Jewish heritage. Through centuries the Hungarian and Jewish history has been intertwined. Hungarian Jews played and are also playing today an important role in the country's economical, cultural and political life. Since 1995 we show to Budapest visitors the Hungarian and Jewish culture in our country. Our well trained guides have the necessary qualifications to help you understand the Jewish past and present in Budapest and in Hungary. Tours are organized in two languages (English and German). We try to keep the sightseeing tours with small groups of guests.

I am Jewish and I have to say if our guide Barbara didn't know something she fixed it with her kindness and that counts so much. When we joined her again after spending time with an "official" guide from the museum she provided all the details she didn't know, details we were asking about. She searched for it while we had a really, really poor experience in a group with a state guide repeating info we could read in the brochure! Budapest Jewish Heritage tours I will recommend to my friends because they are honest and try so hard to pass on our (Jewish) history. They recommended us a specialized Jewish private tour in Prague where we are aiming soon and we plan to take their advice. Thank you for your effort.

We did the tour with the Jewish Heritage Tour and it was awful! The guide didn’t know anything about the synagogue or provided wrong comments.
Tour is free by the synagogue if you purchase the entrance ticket. It is in many languages and it is very good!!!!

Last Friday, September 13th, 2019 I took the Budapest Jewish Heritage Walking Tour and it is with disappointment, I have to give it a poor rating . The main guide Barbara was wonderful... knowledgeable, informative and with a warm personality. But the Jewish Museum guide the group of 11 was passed to, for a great length of precious time was terrible . She spent the entire time on the Jewish Calendar, ignoring all the articles on display. 5 out of the 11 tour members left her portion of the tour, and went downstairs to wait for Barbara to continue . When asked to describe the articles, she told me that she doesn’t do that on her tour ! She also skips the entire 2nd floor which I found by wondering off ... very important artifacts on that floor with descriptions!
Barbara was great ... Museum guide awful !

Interesting tour with knowledgeable tour guide. Started in the Synagogue where the histoyof the Synagogue was explained and then moved outside to the cemetery contains the remains of members of the Jewish population who died in the ghetto in Budapest towards the end of WW11. A great tour which is highly recommended. The inside of the Synagogue is beautiful.

We had a wonderful tour with Chilla. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the Jewish people in Budapest and Hungary up until present day. The tour was informative and interesting. It was the best tour we had in Budapest and one of the best tours we have had in any city.

I had an overwhelming tour instructed by Barbara (Barby) in english. She covered historical issues and mile stones in a comprehensive way that made events almost visual.
I have a warm recommendation on Barbara and her tour. Enjoy

When we were unable to secure tickets online for the tour offered on the Great Synagogue's website, the concierge at the Budaoest Hilton booked a prepaid tour for us with Jewish Heritage Tours. We were told that we should meet our guide at 9:45 the next morning for a tour commencing at 10 AM. When the guide had not arrived by 10:00 (and there were 10-15 people awaiting him), we called the company and were told the guide was running late. When no guide had apoeared by 10:30, we were told to "wait a little longer" while they checked on the situation. Upon calling again at 10:45, we were advised that the guide had called in sick and no replacement was available but our money would be refunded. Fortunately, we were able to ourchase tickets directly from the synagogue's ticket office. We would advise you not to do business with this company.
