It was a great experience. The food was fabulous and the host so warm and inviting
This was a two part tour. The first part dealt with Jewish history in Budapest and Szonja was as great a docent as one could have. We walked and saw the main Synagogue in Budapest as well as other buildings. That alone is worth this tour. It is an incredible building that must be seen to understand the history of the period. Szonja, once again is extraordinarily knowledgeable and great to listen to. Her enthusiasm for the subject matter was contagious. We really had a great experience going around Budapest and seeing how real people are living, especially some young folks who visit some of the converted buildings that are now pubs and restaurants. At the end of the walking tour, we were supposed to have a Jewish Hungarian meal prepared by a Rabbi's wife We got to the appointed address and Szonja rang the bell. The folks here had no idea what was happening. Nothing was prepared and we were left on the street with no place to seat. Thankfully, Szonja didn't abandon us and tried, unsuccessfully to find a restaurant for us to go to. There was NOTHING available anywhere. Context did return that portion of our tour money, but quite frankly that is NOT sufficient for our failed expectations. I would not take the Taste of Hungary portion of this tour, which for us was a combined expectation. We NEVER got an explanation as to what logistical problems existed that caused this to not happen.
Extremely well informed, pleasant and fun
