Abel was a wonderful tour guide. We loved his perspective about the political situation and his knowledge from having grown up in the Budapest Jewish Community. The time he spent on each aspect of the tour was just right. He provided lots of information appropriate for both Jewish and non Jewish guests. The tour was well worth the time and money!! We highly recommend this tour with Abel.

A very interesting morning. Benjamin is very knowledgeable about Jewish history and told us all about the history of the hungarian Jews in a very professional and interesting manner.

This ad the best tour I have taken thanks to our guide Abel. Not only was he knowledgeable and passionate about Jewish history and Budapest but he was a great story teller.
