    Your tour will begin at the Dohány street Synagogue, where your local guide will meet you. As you walk through the city streets, you’ll hear about the Jewish community in Budapest, both past and present. Essential Tour: (approximately 2.5 hours)
    This option offers a concise route for travelers on a stricter schedule. The Essential Tour will begin with a step inside the biggest synagogue in Europe, the Dohány Street Synagogue. While inside you’ll explore the Jewish Museum, which hosts an impressive exhibit of pieces from Hungarian and Eastern European artists. Your guide will then take you to Raoul Wallenberg Holocaust Memorial Park, named for the man credited with saving the lives of thousands in the Jewish community. You’ll pass through the old Jewish Quarter, once a ghetto during the Second World War, as well as Heroes’ Temple, which pays homage to lives lost during WWI. Grand Tour: (approximately 4 hours)
    For a more comprehensive option, choose the Grand Tour, which picks up where the Essential Tour leaves off. You’ll make your way to the Jewish Quarter, where kosher bakeries and restaurants are located, along with other synagogues and memorials. Admire the Gozsdu Courtyard, an old passageway currently converted into bustling bars and restaurants and popular with locals and visitors alike. You’ll also visit Carl Lutz Memorial Park, named after another famous figurehead during WWII, as well as the Rumbach Street Synagogue. After a stop at the center of the orthodox community, the Kazinczy Street Synagogue, you’ll pause for some sweets at the kosher Frohlich Bakery and Café. You’ll also be given a 10% discount by your guide to the kosher restaurant, Carmel, to be enjoyed later in the evening on your own if you wish.
