About
The purpose of the Jewish Heritage tour is not just to visit key sites related with the jewish past of the city, but also to focus on all aspects of Judaism in Sevilla. The idea that lies behind my tour is to show you Sevilla through "jewish eyes". And for that we have to put into context past and present. Therefore during our tour, I will take you along an emotional journey where you will be able to understand and enjoy the uniqueness of Jewish past and present day life in Seville..
Seville, Andalucia, Spain

Moisés led us through the formerly Jewish neighborhood of Santa Cruz and its environs, highlighting where Jewish life previously had existed in Sevilla. As there actually is little left of Jewish Sevilla, Moisés' ability to point to what remnants remain and bring history to life was critical and he delivered. Moisés did a great job!

Moises was an excellent guide. He educated us about Jewish life in Seville after the city was conquered by the Christians. He took us all around the Jewish quarter, had excellent visual aids, and enabled us to imagine how Jews lived during that time. The tour was so informative and the highlight of our trip.

Travelling through the once Jewish ghetto with Moises was a gift to be cherished. He provided insightful history of the ebb and flow of the Visigoth, Jewish, Muslim and Catholic communities across the centuries.
He is both an educator and an advocate for the protection of people and their histories.
We learned a lot not just by listening but also by his willingness to engage in provocative discussion.
An amazing afternoon. Highly recommended.

The morning we spent with Moises was the highlight of our trip to Spain. I was traveling with my husband and my two teenage children. My teenagers were often reluctant to join us for tours. They both said this tour was the highlight of their trip. Since the tour, we have spent a lot of time as a family discussing things that Moises talked about. Moises speaks from his heart and his head. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the Jews in Spain and in Sevilla. He also has a very personal connection to the Jewish community in Sevilla, having grown up there, gone to university there, and being one of a few dozen Jewish families that remain in Sevilla. He is a gifted teacher. If you are planning a trip to Spain, do not miss this tour - even if Sevilla was not on your itinerary!

Our tour with Moises was one of the highlights of our trip to Southern Spain. He is an incredibly knowledgeable and charismatic guide with a wealth of information about Jewish life in Seville — both past and present. While there aren’t many sites remaining from before the Inquisition, Moises paints a fascinating picture of Jewish life in Southern Spain and takes you to a number of hidden gems and spots you would never otherwise find. Would absolutely recommend this tour!

A friend who had hired Moises was so pleased, she told us that we "have to do this tour!" Well, was she ever right on with her recommendation. In addition to booking his tour, he made reservations for us for a Flamenco performance that was not on the "tourist-beaten track." He also advised us on our choices for attending a bullfight.

His tour of the Jewish Quarter of Sevilla was one of the major highlights of our trip to Spain. Being of Sephardic Jewish heritage, it was exciting to learn about an area where my ancestors could have resided. He had a tremendous wealth of knowledge and was very easy to understand; his command of English was excellent. He concentrated on proving us with information; he did not steer us into stores where he might have had a commission deal as some other tour guides do.

He also helped us plan a visit to Cordoba, a trip we were doing without a guide.

Moises went above and beyond what one expects from a tour guide. If you are going to Sevilla, and would like a Jewish tour, you must hire Moises; his fee is more than worth it.

We had the great fortune to do a walking tour with Jorge Gersham Ben-Ami. He is extremely knowledgeable about the Jewish community past and present and shared his insights with us. He is easy to listen to and captivated my spouse and I from beginning to end.
You can tell that he is historian who has researched his information and intelligently presented it to us and in an informative manner.
Do not waste your time with any other tour of the “Jewish quarter” ( as we did did previously), Go through the cultural center and make sure Jorge is the guide!

Our time with Moises was well spent. We learned more about the Jews in Spain with Moises than we could have read about in any guide book. First off, Moises' email communication was great regarding information about his tour and he also provided us with info on the local area hotels as well as info about a day trip to Cordoba. As others have said, Moises made the Jewish quarters come alive for us. We stopped off at many surprise stops to substantiate how the Jews made their historical mark throughout Seville. i don't want to ruin it for you.. Try to book this tour when you arrive into Seville as this will help to shape the rest of your trip in Seville as we even went into the Cathedral to tour it with him. Moises is charming, worldly, and full of information with regard to all of Spain. Do not wait to book as he is just one person!!! If you are coming from the USA surprise him with Entenmen's little doughnuts!!!

We were lucky to be able to tour Seville with Gershon, an incredibly knowledgeable, engaging and fascinating man. Walking through Santa Cruz, he made history come alive. We highly recommend him and look forward to touring with him again.
