Private Jewish Heritage Tours
Many travelers ask us to incorporate people, places and activities of Jewish significance when they are traveling internationally with us. We can incorporate Jewish touring into any of our tours around the world, from Sydney to Shanghai and most places in between.
Many travelers simply want us to incorporate some Jewish-related sightseeing in Europe, Asia, the Mediterranean and the Middle East, such as important Jewish villages in Spain and Portugal, synagogues in Budapest, or the Jewish Museum in Berlin. Other travelers have us design entire private tours around locations of major historic significance, such as Auschwitz in Poland or Jerusalem in Israel.
Some of our other favorite and most popular destinations for exploring Jewish heritage are Prague and the Czech Republic; Jewish sites throughout Italy, including Sicily, Florence and Venice; Cochin and Mumbai in India; important Jewish sites in Spain such as Toledo, Cordoba, Segovia, Tudela, Girona and Besalu; various locations in Germany; Buenos Aires, Argentina; locations throughout Portugal such as Belmonte, Castelo de Vide, Lisbon and Tomar; Moscow and St. Petersburg in Russia; and locations throughout Morocco and Turkey.
For those travelers who want to track their Jewish family heritage and visit places where their relatives once lived, we provide private drivers and translators as well as assistance to set up appointments at local state archives and meetings with other prominent local experts. Our most popular travel destinations for tracing Jewish family heritage are Hungary, Poland, and elsewhere in Central Europe and the Baltics such as Lithuania.
We have incredible guides available around the world who are Jewish history experts, and they provide an invaluable link to the fascinating local Jewish heritage in each region.
