Our group of 6 enjoyed an outstanding half day tour of the Jewish sites in Lisbon. Our guide, Daniel, was friendly, helpful, very knowledgeable and eager to help us understand the Jewish history and current context in Lisbon. Our pick up and drop off at the cruise port was very easy. The van was clean and comfortable. Our visit to the local synagogue was a very special experience. Our walking tour through the old Jewish quarter of Lisbon was absolutely great. This tour was well worth the money. Ask for Daniel to be your guide. He is marvelous.

There is nothing Jewish in Lisbon (go to Porto). The synagogue is in a 3rd floor apartment in an apartment house. That's the Jewish tour-that's the There is nothing Jewish in Lisbon- go to Porto. The synagogue was located on the 3rd floor of an apartment house. That's the Jewish tour in Lisbon. If there ever was a Jewish presence in Lisbon it's not here now. Save your time and money. Jewish Lisbon.

OMG! - Starting with our guide Daniel - he was great. He was on time, courteous and very knowledgeable. His driving was safe and gave us a great historical account of the history of the Jewish people in not not only Lisbon but in Portugal and Spain as well. He showed us the Sephardic synagogue and the Ashkenazi one as well. The resurgence of Judaism in Lisbon and Portugal is impressive as are the historical and old manuscripts we saw as well. My wife and I would highly recommend this tour.

Daniel was a fabulous tour guide. We were so impressed with his knowledge of the area and history we took a full day tour with him to the Crusader center and Tomar

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.

Our tour was a wonderful experience and this primarily related to Daniel, our tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable, informative, courteous and his communication skills were great. This is the best example of a Viator guide that we have ever had (or for that matter, any excursion guide we've had in the past). Whether walking or driving, he made us aware of what we were seeing and the different areas we were driving through. My wife has a bit of a walking problem and he made sure she was comfortable all the time

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.
