Seeing the Jewish ghetto and learning how it came to be. Why it became important for the government to create such an environment.

Ana was a great tour guide of the Jewish history of Porto and Portugal in general. Loved the winding old city, secret ark found in the newly developed care home and understanding the movement of Jews across the city as they needed to/ were required to.

I enjoyed this tour so much! This tour was done after a free walking tour of the city, and I felt like the new history I learned was more detailed, and tailored to my religion and nationality. Luckily, we were the only ones that boomed, so we got a private tour by Ana the guide. Honestly, if you want a more engaging tour where you can ask specific questions or clarifications, I would recommend to reserve a private tour in advance.
Ana was informative, knowledgeable and very amiable to be with.

Very informative and imaginative Jewish tour. Though the Jewish history is quite difficult to see because of the exile in 1497 Steve was able to really weave the narrative through the different Judarias and make us feel that we could really see what life may have been like. Very fun to get an overview of Porto history as well and meet the other interesting people on our tour. One of the sights is in a retirement home so we couldn’t see it during covid but everything else was able to be seen. Definitely recommend this tour to those interested in Jewish life in Portugal.

Ana was a very informative knowledgeable guide and gave me a lot of history of the community, right up til today. I was lucky enough to have one on one!
Unfortunately it was raining the whole time and the major site of interest was closed due to Covid.

I highly recommend this tour!
We visited Porto for two days and this was by far our most incredible and well spent time there! Mariana, the tour guide, was very knowledgeable and explained the history of Portugal and its Jewish community very well. During the tour she helped us discover hidden traces of the Jewish community that lived in Porto thousands of years ago, clues we would have never noticed if not for her.
Also, we booked the group tour but were very lucky to be the only people that signed up that day! So it ended up being a lovely private tour.
It is important to learn about the Jewish heritage of Porto and Portugal in general, and fascinating too. It's worth every penny!
Thank you Mariana Salimo Carvalho!!!

Mariana, our tour guide, gave us an in-depth and rich understanding of how/where/when the Jewish people lived in Porto and in Portugal.
She answered every one of our questions with care and thoroughness. She brought her excellent and broad knowledge of the subject matter to bear on this complex history. It was a wonderfully educational and enjoyable experience to have her as our guide. Thank you so much, Mariana.

Anna was a great guide and gave us a large amount of important information about the Portuguese Jewish population of the past and the present. If you are interested in Jewish history, this would be a great tour to take.
