Daniel "the other" was my guide. At the beginning he told me that this Tour is going to be his first one. Sure the start was a little bit diffuse and there was'nt a really good introduction to what we are going to see and explore, but in the end I had a nice experience and a lot of insider knowledge. Due to Covid all the synagogues were closed. That's why we needed to rearrange plans by drinking a tasty coffee in a very cozy book-coffee-shop. Daniel add an extra stop and so we went to heroes square, where he introduced me to the hungarian history and told me every statue's very detailed story - without any notes. Impressive! It was nice and in some points improvable, but we didn't had an easy situation here. Thank you very much, Daniel.

Our tour with Barika was outstanding. She was passionate about the history of Judaism and informed us in a manner that immersed us. Additionally she shared some really personal stories (which we are really hoping she will one day pen on paper) that were incredibly moving, and delivered in a way which handled humanity so delicately. This, we felt, is a challenge due to the subject matter that was being discussed and this was one of the reasons she was such an unique guide. She was an infectiously happy person who was helpful and encouraged questions/ insights in to the information that she delivered. We left the tour wondering how 2 and a half hours had passed already. Made our day today! Thank you! One of the highlights of our stay.

Klasse Tour mit sehr guten Guide! Kann ich nur weiterempfehlen. An Infos wurde nicht gespart! Einzig die Beschreibung des Treffpunkts ist nicht ganz so gut gelungen. Der Treffpunkt ist vor dem Eingang des Kempinskihotels (li. Seite), vor der Tür des ‘Blue Fox’ (einer Bar).
