Discover why, even today, you can feel Sephardic influences, all over the town. We will tell you why Jewish community was important for Portuguese Golden Age of Discoveries and we will tell about the intellectuals, the mathematicians, the cabalists…

★★★★★ Reviewed by Carol on 2018-11-29
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.

One of the best tours I ever booked.

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.
