Hello --

The optional for "Jewish Budapest" is 4 hours where you'll have 1.5 hours free time.

SIGHTSEEING INCLUDES: Coach departure from ship to Dohány Synagogue, the world's second largest synagogue, for a guided tour of its history. Next, you'll visit the Holocaust Memorial erected in 1989 in honor of the Hungarian Jews who died during the Holocaust. Guests might have time to explore a Jewish Museum located here (if open). Páva Synagogue is also worth visiting, located on these grounds.
Please note the optional is not offered on Saturdays and the synagogue is closed on Mondays.

The half-day Szentendre optional tour is 4 hours and 50 minutes where you'll have 1.5 hours of free time.

SIGHTSEEING INCLUDES: Departure with local guides, drive along the Danube past Roman excavations (Aquincum), through rural suburbs. You'll arrive in Szentendre for a guided walking tour through the main street shopping boulevard offering typical Hungarian arts and crafts in all quality and price. Then visit the Micro Art exhibition, where you will view creations of 15 artists through a microscope. Their works are hardly visible with an unaided eye. Next will be a visit to Szamos confectionary to enjoy a delicious piece of cake or other delicacies with a cup of tea or coffee in a decorated saloon with a view of the main street. Next is a short bus ride to Caprice, Europe's largest jewelry and diamond center, to see a fascinating demonstration on diamond polishing as well as a tour of the jewelry museum . You'll have some free time to browse at the showroom.

The information above is subject to change.

Should you have any other questions, please contact customerservice@uniworld.com or 1-800-733-7820.
