I am a Budapest-loving local and I want to share with you my enthusiasm for Budapest. Its special atmosphere that is a combination of history, the colorful culture, the people, and their love of our land. I studied art and history and have worked as a professional guide for years. Spending time with my grandmother, listening to her stories, learning to cook the the traditional recipes was a great inspiration for me. I'd love to show you my beloved city.

Tour description

Come with me on an extraordinary tour with a local guide around the unique Jewish quarter of Budapest. As one of my favorite districts, the houses all have their history. How can the most hyped party district happen to be among historic buildings? What is the synagogue triangle?
HIGHLIGHTS of the tours are :
• The Central Synagogue

  • The local multi-cultural neighborhood, with Szimpla Kert, the famous ruin bar.
  • The Memorial Garden of Wallenberg.
  • The most important Jewish communal places.
  • only localéy known hidden gems

I can share with you my personal stories, the history of the area, and the best tips to get good Jewish and Hungarian food and drink! I can tell you all about the recent situation of the community as well as the 'Flódni' tasting cafés.

We took two tour guided by Brigitta - this one and the tour about the communism era in Hungary. Both of them were just amazing! I can highly recommend these tours if you want to dig a little deeper in Budapest history.

10/10!! Hacer el tour con Brigitta fue un placer. Nos explicó la historia del barrio judío con muchísimo detalle y disfrutamos cada minuto del tour. Siempre es un plus hacer el tour con un guía local ya que te aporta una perspectiva diferente y mucho más personal. Lo recomiendo 100%!
