A Recent Review of this tour

Our tour, "Jewish Culture in Palermo", was simply wonderful. Our visit to the future synagogue in Palermo was the highlight, and we are thankful that our guide, Bianca, was able to coordinate this and include it on our tour. Bianca was lovely, smart, professional, and cordial, and we are grateful for having found Bianca and this tour. We highly recommend this 5-Star tour of Jewish Culture in Palermo.
