About the tour

Have a glance at the exciting and rich culture of the Hungarian Jewish community with Virtualtrips's historical Jewish quarter tour! During this live virtual walking tour, your guide will walk you through the heart of the historical Jewish quarter of Pest, which is one of the most interesting parts of Budapest’s city center. During this roughly 60 minutes long sightseeing tour Adam will introduce you to the main synagogues of this neighborhood from the outside. Besides that, you can also learn about how and why Jewish families moved to Pest, how the community took part in the historical events, what led to the separation of the different congregations and what is the difference between neolog and orthodox. While we walk from one synagogue to the other you'll also hear a few stories about those who've been awarded with Righteous Among the Nations title.


Meet Adam

Adam

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

Adam, you deserve more than 5! Your tours are always great, delivered with humor and so many insights to the Chech Republic's history and culture. Always enjoy every tour and look forward to many more.

Having been to the Jewish area of Budapest without the benefit of a guide, I was thrilled to hear about the buildings and the history. Adam was a great guide. I would really like an indoor tour if this were ever possible.
