All the information you need to find a dedicated Jewish heritage tour or tour guide, around the world
Jews have left their legacies on every continent and in every culture, so there are Jewish heritage sites to visit wherever you go. Although some of them are well documented and, with a little advance research, can be enjoyed on a self-guided tour, you’ll almost certainly get more out of your trip if you hire a tour guide. Here are some resources and links to Jewish heritage tour groups and guides. But be aware: not every tour guide is equal. Do check reviews and ask for recommendations before choosing. For more detailed information about Jewish heritage sites and kosher travel options to exotic locations, visit the relevant page for Jewish heritage Sites in Europe; kosher travel to Africa, Asia & Australia; and Jewish travel to North & South America and the Caribbean.
