    I really liked it, the guide was very friendly, very efficient and very receptive to questions, in my case I had a guide in Spanish and when he realized that she was Portuguese, he kindly asked if he was understanding and many times he even spoke in Portuguese. Grade 10

    Booked via app we didn't have to wait for ticket and shown voucher before security check. Entering the synagogue there are several signs relating to the language one prefers. Our Italian guide was very competent, knowledgeable and exhaustive. It was exciting and worth it for anyone who wants to know a piece of Hungarian Jewish history

    I must premise that the purchase does not give the right to priority access there is only the convenience of buying tickets without queuing. The visit to the synagogue is very interesting and the tour is done in several languages including Italian. The guide was engaging and comprehensive, the visit lasts about 45 minutes then everyone is free to stay as long as they want. The place is truly beautiful and moving at the temple itself. A place to see for sure. Enjoy your visit.
