The tour was wonderful and informative. Our guide was knowledgeable. The only unfortunate part was another purist who kept interrupting the guide with questions instead of waiting to see if his questions would be answered once she had finished her speech.

really glad we did this tour. getting to tour the largest synagogue in Europe and tour Round the memorial site was a very worthwhile experience. our guide did an excellent job in the short time explaining about the Jewish religion, the role it and the synagogue has played I. Hungarian history, and the tole that the holocaust played to the Jews in Hungary. Also touring the grounds outside which is a world War 2 memorial to those that lost their life was very moving. Take time to look through the exhibit in the cellar and the largest Jewish relic museum in the world. also the length of the tour was excellent. the guided portion over in 45 minutes then you can tour the grounds as much as you want. I recommend doing the tour first to get the information and history from the guide and then tour around the sites after because it will mean much more knowing what it all represents.
