The tour and our guide, Roza Jedrzejko, were amazing. It was the highlight of my trip to Portugal. Roza was extremely knowledgeable and very flexible in making everything work. She went above and beyond both in terms of transportation, scheduling and the tour itself. It include not only a tour of the synagogue but also a fascinating visit of the area where the Jews had lived. I would highly recommend both Roza and this tour.
Fantastic tour with excellent guide
A fantastic tour of Jewish Porto. Roza is excellent, very knowledgeable, friendly and interesting. Would highly recommend.
Excellent Insight into Portuguese-Jewish History

Highly recommend this 4-hour tour. Our guide - Ms. Roza Jedrzejko - was very knowledgeable about the complex history and culture of the Jewish population of Porto that dates back to the 1100s. While we toured the former Jewish quarters, Roza “pointed out” places of interest; many that no longer exist ("the hidden synagogue".) The highlight was a visit to the very active Mekor Haim, Porto’s Synagogue, the largest in the Iberian peninsula. When booking, be sure to check whether synagogue will be open on tour day.

We have just done this tour with Roza Jedrzeijko and it was excellent. Roza is friendly, very knowledgeable and interesting. She went at our pace, didn’t rush anything and we had a lovely afternoon tour. Highly recommend
The tour with Roza was one my most memorable experiences in Porto
Roza is such an amazing person! I had wonderful time with her guidance. She is very professional and knows so much about the Jewish history in Portugal. Not only that but she is flexible and would try best to fulfill our desires and needs as tourists. I’m 100% recommend booking a tour with her.
