In Budapest Tours we are a group of professional and accredited guides, with degrees in Art History, Geography and History; and with extensive experience in the sector and a passion in common: Budapest. We work with professionalism, honesty and transparency to show the best that this imperial city offers from a critical point of view, beyond a simple photo. With us you not only have a guide but a host, a helping hand, someone who can show you this city with the love it deserves. We think in yellow and that implies that we are guides of the 21st century. That is why we like to establish a relationship of closeness and trust between travelers and guides. This is achieved by respecting the traveler, and for him we believe that having small groups is the most sincere way of transmitting knowledge and feelings so that your trip is filled with experiences and anecdotes to tell you when you return home. Our aim is that you live Budapest with the same love that we live it every day.

Tour description


Do you know that most of the Jews deported to Auschwitz were Hungarians?

Discover with us who was the Arrow Cross Party and the liberation of the city at the hands of the Red Army.

In this tour you will get to know the Holocaust process in Hungary, but also about the righteous among the nations: those heroes who “rowed against the current of hostility and indifference against the Jewish People.

The space in which this tour takes place is one of the most traditional neighborhoods in Budapest, Erzsébetváros, also known as the Jewish Quarter. In this neighborhood is where the main synagogues are concentrated, and with your visit you will have the opportunity to learn to recognize the different branches of Judaism. Another feature of this neighborhood is for being the epicenter of nightlife.

While walking its streets we will find endless restaurants and bars, therefore, we cannot stop talking about Khoser food and the main dishes of Jewish-Hungarian food, although the bars of ruins mark the pulse of the neighborhood. We will talk about their origin and we will say goodbye at one of its most famous bars.

Cuenta muy bien la historia del pueblo judio en Hungria de forma amena. El guía consiguió que entendiésemos la historia mostrando todas las luces y sombras que caracterizan la ciudad. Repetiría
