Have a deeper glance at the exciting and rich culture of the Hungarian Jewish community with Virtualtrips's historical Jewish quarter part 2 tour! During this live virtual walking tour your guide will walk you through the off-the beaten path parts of the so-called historical Jewish quarter of Pest, which is one of the most interesting parts of Budapest’s city centre. During this roughly 45 minutes long sightseeing tour Adam will introduce you to those stories of the historical Jewish quarter that due to time limitations he has no chance to tell during the part 1 tour. Stumbling stones, angels who've been awarded with Righteous Among the Nations title, Gaudiopolis, and some micro stories from the everyday life of mid-class Jewish families. That's not all! The tour starts at the Ghetto Wall Memorial, and during the tour Adam will show you the last remaining section of the WWII ghetto's wall, which is hiding in the courtyard of an almost completely abandoned residential building.
Working as a tourist guide was not my first career choice, but it seems to be the right choice. For a while I followed a sort-of standard path: getting my bachelor, and my masters degree and started to work for a multinational company. Meanwhile my interest towards my hometown kept growing to the point that my friends convinced me to return to school and get my licence to become a tourist guide. As the saying goes: the rest is history. I have been in the business since 2011 and regardless of all the hardship, difficulties, uncertainty I still have passion for my profession. Which I hope will be obvious for you once you take a tour with me in Budapest, or in the Hungarian countryside. By joining a tour with me you will get two in one: a professional, licenced guide and an amateur urban photography enthusiast. Both are very handy when it comes to live, virtual tours. You can expect great angles, excellent postcard opportunities and a dry sense of humour during my tours as I strongly believe in entertaining while educating. Kind regards

This was a very interesting and thought provoking tour, and Adam delivered it from the heart. He is right, this is a story that needs telling and we need to be aware of the consequences of hatred, and maintain a dialogue with people whose culture is different from our own. Adam's tour will stay in my heart.

Adam made me cry twice. Once when he got sentimental and the very end. Tough subject but he handled it well. Well strutted tour

Not all that photogenic--but commentary was terrific

Informative tour about Jewish legacy in Budapest. In my opinion Adam's camera handling is the best of the HeyGo. Adam showed his knowledge about the topic, but I was sad to see buildings that were part of the ghetto area abandoned and no commemorative plaque in the park where thousand of bodies were found. As a Jewish, this topic is very sensitive for me because some members of my family were killed by the Nazis. It is the second time I take this tour. I am sorry to write this and I hope that Adam understands me because I know the effort he puts in every tour, but I have to be honest with myself, and this time, you didn't touch my heart as the first one. Thank you for the tour! See you soon.
