Paulo is personable, knowledgeable, and passionate about the Jewish history of Portugal. The tour was fabulous. It left me hungry to read more about the Jewish history of Lisbon from the sources he provided.

Paolo gave us a passionate tour of Jewish Lisbon. He kept our 12-year old engaged the entire 3 hours. We didn't want it to end. His connections to the Jewish monuments and the current Rabbi in Lisbon gave him an insider's point of view. He...More

Do any of your tours include admission to the Sintra castle and a tour of the castle? I prefer not to waste time standing in line for a ticket and prefer to have someone take me around the castle.
