The tour was excellent. Our tour guide (I can't recall his name; he's from Mexico) was very knowledgeable and has an academic background in history. This showed in his passion for the subject and his respect for Jewish history. Our group was very small (our family of 3 plus one other person), so the tour was a great value. I appreciated that the cost of the museums/synagogues was included in the tour price. Would definitely recommend for an English-speaking tour.

Margaret was absolutely amazing as a guide. She had so much knowledge and she made you feel the emotions of the stories she was telling. She was patient with us and answered all our questions big or small! I highly recommend her guided tour, I learned so much!
