"Visite très agréable au sein de la ville permettant de comprendre les rouages politiques économiques du Portugal au cours de l'histoire. Guide très sympathique agréable et maîtrisant le sujet. Je recommande "
★★★★★
"Gostaria de recomendar imensamente o passeio guiado sobre a história da escravidão no Imperio Português, que pude realizar com o excelente guia senhor Rui. O passeio permite conhecer a história da escravidão juntamente com a história política de Portugal. Ouvir essa parte da história ao longo de uma caminhada pelas ruas de Lisboa, visitando locais em que ocorreu, nos faz pensar e conhecer a história de uma forma diferente."

"Daniel was terrific. Prompt, kind, and full of knowledge about the history and what remains of the Jewish community. He started out at a beautiful hilltop site which overlooks Lisbon and pointed out areas of interest. It was a 4 1/2 hour tour and very complete. Took us to a very small synagogue where we understood the difficulties of maintaining Jewish life in Lisbon. This was a highlight for us as well as being with Daniel."
★★★★★
"Very interesting tour! Rui has a great knowledge about the subject and about Lisbonn and portuguese history in general. You really feel the passion when you talk with him and he is a very pleasant person. If you want to know more about this (hidden) side of history, in which portuguese had a very imortant role, and wich is in general summarized in "Portuguese great Explorations", don't hesitate and book this tour. You will enjoy! Thiandella."

"We were looking for a Private tour of Jewish Lisbon. What we got was a private four hour tour of historical Lisbon with a very knowable local resident Daniel. He drove us to places we wouldn’t have seen without his expertise. Every question we had about Jewish Lisbon and Portegese history in general he had an answer to. One of the best tours I ever booked. Thank you Daniel for making our trip to Lisbon full of great memories."
