Overview

Enrich your knowledge of Lisbon’s rich Jewish heritage on a private half-day walking tour of Portugal’s capital city. While listening to history-rich commentary from your guide, you’ll visit Lisbon’s charming Jewish Quarter — nicknamed Small Jerusalem — and tour the elaborate tombs of a Jewish cemetery. As you explore Lisbon, you’ll discover the impact that the Jewish community had during the Golden Age. On this private tour, you’ll receive undivided attention from your guide.

  • Private walking tour of Lisbon's Jewish quarter
  • Explore the Jewish quarter and visit a Jewish cemetery
  • Discover the impact Lisbon's Jewish community had during the Golden Age
  • Uncover the UNESCO-listed landmarks of Alfama, Lisbon's oldest district
  • Receive undivided attention from a private guide

Greet your guide at Praça do Comércio, the ornamental space located near Lisbon’s waterfront. As you amble to your first destination, your private guide provides a historical overview of Lisbon’s Jewish community.

Stop first at a small Jewish ghetto and hear tales of residents past and present. Then, proceed to Alfama — the oldest district in Portugal’s capital — and explore what was one of the largest Jewish ghettos to exist in Europe.

See, too, a Jewish cemetery and gain insight into the integral role the Jewish community continue to play in the city’s development. Your tour concludes in Alfama, where your guide offers recommendations for further exploration.

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.

The guide was wonderful, but the tour was sad.. We saw the neighborhoods where Jews used to live,
Nothing there to mark them, one has a cemetery under an office bldg. There is a tiny Ashkanazi
temple in a rented apt. Our guide told us in Portugese schools, they are not taught about the
Inquisition or the Holocaust.
