¡¡¡Excelente, tanto el tour como el guia Alejandro!!!

La explicacion del guia Alejandro, muy amena e interesante, entrado con bastante detalle en la historia de Hungria y en concreto lo que sucedio en el barrio judio de Budapest. Con personas como Alejandro, da gusto asistir a estos tours, transmitiendote la misma pasion que el siente por la historia de esta ciudad.

Fantastic tour in Budapest

Dani was an excellent guide, he showed us around the Jewish quarter with lots of interesting information and he was very polite and respectful when describing the Jewish culture and uses. We will recommend this tour to anyone visiting Budapest.

Too crowded, few useful information.

More than 20 people is absolute crazy, even 10 would be too michele@jobandtalent.com for the streets you have to go to listen the guide. Moreover, the guide could have talk much more about the Jewish history before and after the WWs. Instead of explaining some wall paintings (why should I care about a wall painting about the victory of Hungary vs England at Football?!) and finishing the tour in a bar... Kind of a pity for the tour, that btw lasted less than 2h (not 2h15m as advertised).
