Full description
Start your tour with hotel or port pick–up, and explore the Jewish district by car. Hear the historic background of the district and sites like the Dohány Street Synagogue, the tree of life, the street of the orthodox community, Király street, and the ghetto wall. Learn about present day Hungary, the transformation of this area into the Soho of Budapest.

Drive to a cafe to meet a Rabbi and hear about the traditions, religion, cuisine, and history of the Jews in Hungary, and learn about their current life. Feel free to ask questions and discuss your views with the Rabbi in an informal 50–minute meeting. Next, take a visit to a wonderful and lesser–known neolog Synagogue, home to an energetic and active Jewish community.

Head to a local home in a comfortable car or minivan, and listen to an interesting commentary on Budapest and Hungary along the way. Upon arrival, feel at home as you are greeted by your host with traditional Hungarian pálinka! For lunch, savor a Hungarian meal, along with some good Hungarian wine. After your hearty lunch and good conversation, head back to your hotel or ship.
