    THE LIGHT OF SEFARAD

    Spain & Portugal Inspirational Journey

    Since the events occurred at the end of the 15th century and the expulsion of the Jewish people from the Iberian Peninsula, Sefarad remains not only as a part of history but at the remembrance of a golden age. This tour has three goals: first, it is conceived as a Luxury journey through a land of splendor, with outstanding highlights and unforgettable visits. In another level this tour is also a way to study the reality of the Jewish presence in the Iberian Peninsula. But what most motivates Jean, our travel guru,being Jewish himself, is to go beyond all of that and ask directly the question: what was really Sefarad, the land where the Zohar flourished ?

    Step-by-step this inspirational tour will invite you to open your eyes and to listen. Sefarad was a land of poets of outstanding culture, a culture which still enlightens the memory of the Jewish people. Sefarad is not only a remembrance, it is also a way to meet again.

    We've had 2 private tours during our stay in Lisbon. The Vintage hotel, a lovely 5* boutique hotel with excellent staff, was an excellent choice. One tour was of Tomar and Obidos, the other was to Sintra. Both times the guides picked us up right on time; Mercedes SUVs were new and comfortable, with free wifi and water. Both tours were packed with information, and we were able to see everything we wanted to see, at our own pace.



    We are also very thankful to Carlos G for taking us to Portugal's oldest synagogue in Tomar: we didn't know about it, and it was incredible that he took us there. Details like this show that it's not just a job - the person really cares. 
Both guides love history and love their country, and they are able to convey it, and make the tour even more memorable. Also want to mention that our preparation for the tour was equally professional: the questions we had before making a booking decision were answered almost immediately, clear and precise.

    Very thankful to Terra Traditions for contributing to our amazing Portugal experience.
