Full description
To start the tour, meet your private guide at a previously arranged place (your hotel, apartment, or any other spot in the city). Since it's a customized tour, the route may vary according to the meeting point, nevertheless the tour in all cases includes all of the following sights below. Most of the tour takes place in the 7th District. You will visit several attractions, starting with the Dohány Street Synagogue, the second biggest synagogue in the world. Enter the building and spend about 50 minutes there.  Guests receive a guided tour inside, and have the possibility to visit the Jewish Museum that is part of the complex. Leaving the synagogue, you will walk the small and cosy streets of the district, getting an insight into the contemporary, bohemian-artistic nature it has aquried since the 1990's. You will visit the abandoned Rumbach Synagogue, then reach Kazinczy street and visit the beautiful Ortodox Synagogue built in Art Nouveau style. During the tour you will have a stop in a typical Jewish café where guests are offered a drink, and have the chance to taste the most famous Hungarian Jewish cake (also included in the price). The tour ends at the riverside near the Parliament at the Shoes on the Danube Memorial. You will have a very authentic and detailed picture of the history of the Jewish Community in Hungary from the very beginning to the present, and will also get the chance to discover the hidden secrets apart from the main sights. The duration of the tour is 3-4 hours, but that may also vary according to your request.
