Szonja was an amazing tour guide! She provided the perfect balance between Jewish history pre and post WWII - and a focus on Hungarian Jewish identity, within a larger context of the country’s history. She explained the Holocaust history in a way that was both sensitive and age appropriate for my teenage children. We really enjoyed the tour and learned a lot.
Greta was amazing! Super knowledgeable, not just about the Jewish quarter and the synagogues, but about life in Budapest in general. She was warm, engaging, interesting, kind, super nice, and made our time with her one of the highlights of our time in Budapest! We feel very lucky to have spent the morning with her.
Greta was amazing! She is super-knowledgable, enthusiastic, and helps shape the tour to the tourist's interests. Because of the virus, we were only two, and she asked lots of questions about us and our backgrounds to help shape what she talked about. Even though we could not go into some of the buildings, she was prepared with an iPad stocked with photos, maps, and historic documents. Honestly, it was like taking a pleasant walk with an encyclopedic friend. You can tell this is not just a job with her, but her passion. Highly recommended!
