I really enjoyed this very informative and fascinating look into the Hasidic community given by Frieda. She is very knowledgeable since she herself grew up in this community and knows quite a bit about it. I also enjoyed the numerous food stops we made where we enjoyed a variety of authentic Hasidic food.

We have been to New York over 10 times and have each time booked one or the other tour. This tour has been the best by far. The tour gives a very good and informative introduction into the everyday life of Hasidic Jews. The rules of their faith and coexistence may seem strange to an outsider. However, after the tour we had an understanding how the group is cohesive and why leaving the community is very difficult for individuals. The special highlight of the tour is the guide Frieda. She grew up there herself and left the religious community only a few years ago, so she uniquely combines information about the religious community with her own, very personal experiences. The tour takes a total of 3 hours, the track is moderate. Part of the tour is a short stop at a local bakery and at the end a meal together with the opportunity to ask questions again. All participants received a radio receiver with headphones in order to understand the explanations of the guide despite ambient noise.
