An Independent Jewish Heritage Tour with Totally Spain

Share this:

Here at Totally Spain, we’ve been designing custom trips to Spain and Portugal since 2000. We recently heard back a client from the US for whom we customised an independent Jewish-interest tour in Spain & Portugal – thanking us for the trip and insisting that we should do a bit more chest-thumping about our skills and experience.

This is what Stuart wrote:

“I would highly recommend Belen of Totally Spain as a vacation planner. My wife and I originally attempted to plan our trip of Portugal and Southern Spain by ourselves and it immediately became clear to us that we were in well over our heads. Thanks to Belen, we were able to enjoy exceptional guides, first-rate hotels in the perfect part of the towns in which we stayed, and drivers who took us to and from the airports/train station. All this at a price well within our budget!”

Needless to say we beamed :) We put a lot of time and thought into planning our Jewish heritage trips to Spain and Portugal and were delighted Stuart and his wife enjoyed their time here.

The plaque Stuart and his wife visited – which commemorates the flight of the Jewish community from Spain in 1492 and from Portugal in 1496.


We got back onto Stuart who answered a few more questions we thought might help others researching a similar trip to Spain.

How would you describe your trip? “Educational, scenic and lots of fun”.

How would you describe your dealings with Totally Spain? “We communicated primarily by e-mail and always received a prompt and responsive reply”.

What was the most useful/helpful thing we did for this trip? “Found exceptional guides and perfectly-located hotels. Relieved the stress of doing it ourselves”.

What would you single out as the highlight of the trip for you? “The Jewish heritage aspect of tour throughout Portugal”.

Did you feel you received good value for money? Yes. Would you book with us again? Yes. Would you recommend us? Yes!

Thank you Stuart!
