Licensed Tour Guide
My name is Brigitta Ladányiné Zemba, I am a licensed tourist guide providing tailor made tours in English, German and Hungarian languages. I have permission from the Hungarian Jewish Community to lead tours inside the Dohány, Rumbach and Kazinczy Synagogue.
I graduated from the College of International Management and Business where I studied English and German Languages and at the University of Jewish Studies, where I studied Jewish Cultural History. I have Economic Translator, International Marketing Management and Jewish Cultural History MA degrees. I offer ordinary and specialized professional translations as well.
I live very close to Budapest, have three children and a very active dog. She can be my „co-guide” on your request. Although she doesn’t speak too much, she is friendly with humans and well socialized with other dogs and she loves children.
Walking in Budapest and exploring new things is great, I never get bored of it. Budapest is a beautiful city where you can find hidden places, interesting, sometimes touching, melancholic stories. As a passionate local tourist guide I would like to show you the main attractions of Budapest as well as some hidden gems, along with some stories you cannot find in guidebooks. . In addition to visiting the architectural masterpieces, we can discover the memories of the Roman times, the atmosphere of cafés of the 19th Century, the flourishing time between the two world wars, the destruction caused by the Second World War, the tragic times of the holocaust, the events of 1956 and the absurdity of the communist system. We can follow how the city developed. I can tell you about the local Jewish community, culture and traditions. We can visit churches, synagogues and museums, find hidden synagogues and see temporary or permanent exhibitions.
Who do I recommend my tours for? For those who would like to get a personal and everlasting experience. If you prefer tours with a smaller group and would like to spend your time seeing only the things you are most interested in. If you have a dog and prefer a dog friendly tour. If you would like to be alone only with your partner or with your family members or friends, taste some Hungarian food, I would be happy to tailor the tour to your needs. Please look at the options in the menu of tour packages, contact me and share with me the sites you would most like to see. As all the programs are private, organized for small groups, changes can be made even during the tour.
I hope to see you soon!
Your guide to be,
