Gloria was a pleasure to tour with and full of wonderful knowledge about Jewish Lisbon, Lisbon and Portugal generally. Her kindness and enthusiasm were wonderful and we enjoyed seeing Lisbon and Jewish Lisbon through her eyes. She also gave us some great information about typical Portuguese food which we were able to experience with her at a delicious lunch in a local restaurant.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for you kind comments. I hope to see you again soon.

Gloria is a delightful lady with a wealth of knowledge who led us on a tour of Jewish Lisbon plus the sites of Lisbon. She was terrific. We were able to visit the Synagogue and other relevant sites plus visiting other interesting areas in Lisbon and nearby suburbs. If you would like a fascinating Jewish tour by a wonderful guide, book with Gloria and you will not be sorry.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your words. I will see you next time.

Gloria is a wonderful tour guide. She treated us like royalty. Her knowledge about Portugal and Lisbon and Jewish life in Lisbon was excellent. We enjoyed being with her for the day. One of the highlights was visiting the only synagogue in Lisbon where we met with one of the members and could ask questions. Gloria showed us much more of Lisbon that we even anticipated. I would recommend her as a guide to anyone visiting in Lisbon. She was delightful.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you so much. i hope you come back one day.

It's hard to combine one day in Lisbon to allow a first time visitor a chance to get a real feel for the city. Glória did that exceptionally well.

William LiebmanBethesda, MD, United States
Gloria was absolutely outstanding. She not only showed us and explained Lisbon's major sights, and discussed the city's history with us, but also took us to and explained sights of particular interest to us. Gloria was well-prepared, thorough in her presentation, personable and a pleasure to be with, including having lunch at an outdoor cafe, where she demonstrated the art of eating sardines prepared Portuguese style. Our day with Gloria was a perfect end to our travels.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words. It was a pleasure to share each moment with you. It also meant a lot to me to learn more about you. All the best and I hope to see you again in a near future :)

copy of mail I sent to the guide: I just wanted to thank you again for the marvelous tour this morning. I would never have believed that so much could be experienced in so little time, and I was extremely impressed by the depth of your knowledge and above all your enthusiasm and genuine love of your city. When my wife and I visit Portugal again - and as a result of the taste of Portugal you provided for me, I'm sure now that we will - I will definitely be calling on you to be our guide. Thanks so much!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. I really enjoyed meeting you and I will certainly enjoy meeting your wife as well. Regards
Lenore L.United States
Gloria is an excellent guide. The itinerary she set up for us was exactly what we had requested. She was able to answer all of our questions.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lenore. Hope to see you again. Regards
Gloria was delightful. She provided us with information as she guided us through streets either walking or in her vehicle. She made special arrangements to visit the Synagogue. Gloria is very knowledgeable about the history of "Jewish Lisbon". We had a wonderful time. It should also be noted that Gloria met us at the port where our cruise ship was docked.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Faigie. It was great to spend time with you and show you Lisbon. Be welcome to come back to Lisbon and explore more of Lisbon's secrets next time. Regards.
Elizabeth ShapiroUnited States
The sad truth is that there isn't much in the way of a tangible historical Jewish presence in Lisbon. Gloria took us to places in the city that had once had Jewish significance, and spoke knowledgeably about Jewish history in Lisbon. High point of the tour was the visit to Lisbon's Sephardic synagogue, with the opportunity to hear Senhora Anna talk about the recent history of Jews in Lisbon, and her life as a Portuguese Jew.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: That is right Elizabeth. You can ear more about Jewish presence than see. But I believe you managed to realize how Jewish lived and some still live in Lisbon. Thank you for coming. Gloria
Natalie CantorUnited States
Gloria's tour of sites of Jewish interest in Lisbon was marvelous! Her research was extensive and we saw places that we would have never seen on our own. I highly recommend Gloria.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Natalie. It was a pleasure to have met you and your husband and I was so lucky to have known a little bit of your family history. Best regards to both of you. pictures tomorrow :)!
