Mathilde did a great job of guiding us during this walking tour. WARNING: to those who are looking to have a Jewish Heritage experience just know that there is very little evidence in Lisbon of a Jewish community. Visits to the 1902 synagogue must be arranged in advance and there are no visitations on Friday (the day we were in Lisbon). Lisbon has a tremendous historical significance for Jews leaving Europe during WWII but the remaining vestiges are few.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Robert, Thank you so much for your feedback! It was a pleasure to meet you both! Hugs Matilde

Matilda was spectacular-- personable, articulate, extremely knowledgeable, with extraordinarily good English. Just wonderful. 5 stars.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello dear Rick, how are you? Thank you so much for your feedback it's always great to have it! It was a pleasure to be with you! I'm just wondering if you made a mistake when clicking on the stars... It comes up as 2* rating when you wrote five starts... I'm sorry for asking but that will impact my average for sure! Thank you for your time! Looking forward to hearing back from you! Hugs from Lisbon Matilde
Matilde was an excellent guide. The tour was a great history lesson about the Jews and how they lived for centuries under different rule in the country. We did get to visit the only remaining synagogue as well. In addition, we toured the local neighborhoods and got a broader education and appreciation for Lisbon in general--a great starting point from which we based our next few days of exploring the city. The walking itself was easy--minor hills and all over charming streets and plazas. Recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mike! How are you? Sara told me she had a great time with you too! How wonderful! Thank you and hope to see you soon! . Hugs from Lisbon

Mathilde was wonderful. I saw her Jewish heritage tour, and asked if she hike include elements of her food tour as well. She was extremely cooperative, knowledgeable and friendly. I understand much more than I would otherwise.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kathy! It was a pleasure to meet you! See you soon Matilde
