הסיור עם שרה היה פשוט נפלא!
היא לקחה אותי ואת בת זוגי ברגל דרך הרובע היהודי העתיק של העיר והראתה לנו הרבה מאוד פרטים ומקומות שלא היו מתגלים לנו אילולא לקחנו אותה לסיור פרטי עימנו. כמו כן, לאחר מקטע זה, נלקחנו לכל המקומות הייחודים שיש לעיר להציע מתחנת הרכבת, דרך הקתדרלה והמגדל וכך יצא שתוך שלוש שעות בלבד יצא לנו להכיר את העיר העתיקה של פורטו וזה שימש לנו כבסיס נהדר להמשך הסיורים בעיר ביומיים שלאחר מכן. אני ממליץ מאוד על הסיור הזה.
הוא היה מלמד ומהנה כאחד ושרה הייתה מדריכה פשוט נהדרת!
תודה רבה שרה!

We highly recommend Sara Riobom’s Jewish History Tour of Porto. We learned a lot and had a nice walk. The tour is easy to understand and although the focus is Jewish Heritage the sites and historical facts we saw and learned were not solely about the Jewish heritage aspects of Porto. Sara is an excellent tour guide. Her knowledge is extensive and well presented. She is professional and charming.
