Historically, the Lisbon Jewish communities were essential to city life. Jewish people were advisers to kings and queens, doctors, and even some of the explorers, geographers, and mathematicians that transformed Portugal into the wealthiest nation in the world in the 16th century.

On this fascinating day, we'll start with a general introduction to the Jewish presence in the city, followed by a nice walk in the city center, including passing by the site of the 1506 Jewish Massacre near the Church of São Domingos.

The tour then proceeds to the Castle of Saint George (with the best panoramic view of the city) and from here we'll begin to walk down one of the most well preserved Jewish Quarters in Portugal--Alfama.

After lunch, we will continue with a visit to the only Synagogue of Lisbon (Shaare Tikvá), passing by the Commerce Square, where thousands of Jews were forced to be baptized in the 15th century.

Next, it's on to Belém to visit the Jerónimos Monastery, masterpiece of the Manueline style and a tribute to the king that welcomed and protected the Jews that fled from Spain and then expelled them in 1496.

There will be time for a last stop at the Monument to the Discoveries, where you will have the opportunity to see the faces of Jewish men that actively participated in the Portuguese Golden Age of the Discoveries.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
