Paolo was our guide for this family tour - our first time in Lisbon and our first tour. We were the only family as a private tour. Paolo picked us up exactly on time (9am) and we started our tour at the synagogue where Gabriella gave us a very informative and entertaining overview of the Jews in Lisbon and the history of the synagogue. Other stops at Edward VII park, Alfama and Bairro Alto were all interesting and Paolo did a good job of pointing out the highlights and history. The last part of the tour was supposed to include the Jeronimos monastery but there were access problems so Paolo couldn’t take us there..We also did not go to the Belém tower and discovery monument as we are staying in the area and saw these sights ourselves . So we finished much earlier than planned but it was still a great day.

This was a fantastic day tour of Fatima and Tomar with Paulo our guide and driver. We were the only 4 pax in a comfortable MB van so it ended up being a private tour. Tomar is a must see for history buffs like us. Paulo was well versed in the Knights Templar history and we enjoyed listening to his stories. It was a comfortable day since it was a private tour and Paulo was flexible with our time, allowing us to go shopping in Fatima and buy religious objects. We were lucky to hear mass at Fatima and we had our rosaries blessed. I highly recommend taking this tour with Paulo! It was money well spent!!!

We had the pleasure to spend 5 days with Paolo Moreira, who drove us around the main sites of Portugal. Paolo is very professional and he clearly loves his country and work. We learned a lot about culture, traditions, art, politics, Portugese history and about the incredible story of it's Jewish communities . Paolo shared with us special places, hidden corners and not less important - best places to eat Portugese specialties.
If you want to have a tailor made tour designated by specialists, Embraze is an excellent choice.

I would certainly recommend Real Embrace! As the trip coordinator I really enjoyed working with Paulo from the beginning to the end. You can tell this is his passion and puts his all into making a very special experience for his clients. We really enjoyed some unforgettable moments learning about the Jews of Portugal and learning overall about Portugal's culture and history as a country.

My uncle and I took Paulo's Jewish Lisbon Tour last year. My uncle is Israeli and we met up in Portugal to travel together. First thing that I will say is that Paulo's knowledge of Jewish History and of Lisbon, coupled with his wonderful personality, patience and graciousness, made our day unforgettable. I even connected with him, keep in touch and refer friends who I know are travelling to Lisbon. I would highy recommend Paulo and his company for the Jewish tour but also for any other tours he offers in Portugal. You will only learn, grow and meet a most amazing person!

. We were very lucky on our tour today the owner of the company was our guide for taking us around to seeing the Jewish sites in Lisbon. We went to the only temple in the city and we're introduced to the history of the Temple.the guide was extremely accomodating and knowledgable.Visited the old section of the city Alfama region and other parts that were of historical importance. Would use again if I visit again for the third time.

We met Paulo at 9am in Lisbon near our hotel and from the start of the ride to Sintra he was very friendly and knowledgeable about Portuguese history and the castle and coastal points of interest we visited. Paulo speaks Portuguese, English, and Spanish which was very helpful for our group. We also stopped at Cascais toward the end of the tour which is a great beach city. One of our friends got sick and Paulo was very accommodating and waited for us to be ready to head back. We arrived at home around 5pm. It was a great day and very worth the cost.

Thanks for a great day! We would recommend this tour company and Paulo for anyone looking to see the Lisbon area and wanting to learn about the history.

We wanted to go to Coimbra and had not heard about Aveiro till I found this trip

We loved both places. Paulo was a good guide and knowledgeable. The trip was private and included s ride down the canal in Aveiro. We ended the day with a taste of Port and ovos moles pastry.

We are well traveled and have taken private tours around the whorls. This tour was outstanding in every category. We wanted
A tour that would cover Jewish history and the diaspora. This tour far exceeded our expectations. Paulo is not only knowledgeably about Jewish history and culture but has a wealth and depth of knowledge about history, music, politics, poetry, sociology, art and many other subjects -- in my opinion he is a Renaissance man who imparts his knowledge in an open and communicative manner. No matter how in artfully a question is asked, he understands and responds in such a manner that a dialogue is established and a plethora of information is forthcoming. The tour not only covered Jewish history but all of Portuguese history. We were so enriched, we booked Paulo for another day.
