Springfield Chapter of Hadassah

The program was phenomenal. We have all seen a lot of programs and speakers this past year and truly, yours ranks among the best. I am already getting texts and emails from attendees telling me what a wonderful program this was. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge as well as your very well put together audio and video presentation. Really a wow!

The virtual tour was arranged as a Mother’s Day present from my son. It was wonderful! From start to finish, Dani was a delightful tour guide who brought the history of Jewish Majorca alive. Highly recommend!!

I recently had a chance to “visit” Jewish Majorca, and had a really great experience. We zoomed on five consecutive Sunday afternoons, and I learned an amazing amount. I’d read a couple of books about the conversos, but the knowledge Dani, our tour guide, brought, and the places he took us really made things come to life. (He took us into a hidden tunnel, likely used by “secret Jews” to join others for forbidden services.) I looked forward to every zoom-day, and each one Dani presented was different, culminating with a cooking demo by his wife Carla, from their own kitchen. I recommend this series to any history buff; it will give you context, deepen your knowledge, and definitely make you want to return to Majorca in person.

Thank you, for all you do to keep the Xuetas history alive and not forgotten in Mallorca and around the World!

Leila Van Gelder

I retired this past year and was supposed to be traveling until Covid. Your zoom tours have been such an important part of my Covid survival kit.
Who knows when I’ll land on your island one day…. It could happen!

I have loved every virtual tour that I have taken through Jewish tours Majorca. The guide have been engaging and personable, knowledgeable and responsive to questions. This site has provided me with the ability to travel in a time when travel has been prohibitive. I have learned so much and look forward to my “trips” every week. I highly recommend exploring the world with Jewish Majorca!

Stacey Hess – The Jewish Federations of North America

The Fellows were actively engaged, asking great questions, and the many many many “this was awesome!” comments in the chat box at the end of the session testify to how much they enjoyed themselves.
I absolutely love your presenting style, Dani. You’re very open, personable, and immediately make everyone feel at ease – no small feat given we’re all on screen.  I so appreciate it!

Lisa Kessler

By far the best virtual tour I’ve ever taken – I will take any tour you offer. Thank you Dani!

Dani is an amazing gifted guide and is perfect for tuning in to special Jewish and unique Majorca history. Virtually made us feel right there.

Golda Shkolnick

Dani, you have such a talent for what you are doing…your knowledge and enthusiasm are outstanding.

David Silverman

Have been to Majorca briefly on a cruise but this is so much more interesting and fascinating. Will have to return!

Denise G

Very enjoyable program. Hearing a non-Jewish woman chanting Aveinu Malkenu in Majorca where Jews were murdered centuries before was inspiring!

Emily L

Incredby special and hidden history! For anyone interested in history, especially Jewish or European history, this tour is an absolute must! Dani’s passion for the subject shines through on his tours, as he walks you through the incredibly rich and complex history of the Jews in Mallorca. This history is full of hidden symbols that you can in fact still find around Palma today. Such an amazing experience!

Stacey Hess

The story of the chuetas in Mallorca was something I hardly knew or had heard before hearing from the Jews of Dubai and Majorca was really great. I loved learning about Majorca, it was so engaging and has been my favorite session so far. I really enjoyed the elective session on the Lost Jews of Majorca Island and felt that Mr. Rotstein did an excellent job at giving a well-rounded description of a community about which I hardly knew a thing.

Well, once again, you hit it out of the park.  Thank you and your group for all your work.  I don’t believe one has to be Jewish to give a rich and full presentation of Jewish history.

Hank Glickman

One of the best presentations I’ve ever heard anywhere…

Margie Yavil

Hi Dani, I just viewed the Australian video and I thought that it was excellent!!
Thank you for sending it!!

Even though I have been to Krakow I learned things I never knew before! I so much enjoyed the tour and the tour guide was a pleasure to watch. She was informative, funny and passionate. It was a pleasure returning to Krakow!

I love the tours you and Mariano have organized! During zoom travel it has been the best without getting on a plane! Learnt a lot. Many thanks for your efforts to put Hot Air Balloon together! Best to you , Lilli from LA

Sylvie Bordzuk

Thank you so much for bringing Jewish communities around the world to our living rooms / dens / phones, etc. I am becoming more and more interested in my Jewish heritage with each visit, especially having been brought up with a not particularly strong Jewish identity.

Sheryl A Roberts

Hi, I just finished watching the Hot Air Balloon trips I missed. One is better than the other. They have been fabulous. The speakers you lined up were wonderful. I hope you continue this.
Thank you so much.

Donna Neubauer

This was by far, the best, most professional, easily understood presentation you have ever given us. Kudos to Dani for his connection to Naftali. This one session was worth the price of the entire three month series!

Janice Aarons – Maccabi GB

I would just like to thank you so much for organising a fantastic live walking tour of Prague. Lucie was brilliant and the feedback has been great!

Thank you for an outstanding learning experience! One of the best programs I have seen!

In Person Tour Reviews

Jessica Hendricks Yee

This tour was outstanding! Dani is so incredibly knowledgeable, and so passionate that you can’t help but feel deeply passionate about the Jewish history on the island too. The island has a wild secret history, with important stories that need to be shared. I’m so grateful to Dani for creating this tour and keeping this history alive. Fabulous for anyone, I’d definitely recommend it!

Gabriela Overdorff-Ferriol

Teacher at Escola Global in Majorca

Bringing my History students on this tour is always a major highlight of the year. They develop a layered historical lens on Palma and its Jewish history and have fun discovering things they’ve never noticed before. Dani is a funny, knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide and I highly recommend this tour!

Moira Taubenfeld

Our group of 4 hired Dani to show us around Mallorca for 3 days, which included the Jewish tour. Dani is a true professional eager to share his knowledge through extensive research that he’s done on his own of the (obscure) Jewish history in Mallorca. We learned so much! I highly recommend this tour! Dani’s delivery is very entertaining, and kept our interest at all times.

Ellie Eisenberg

The tour, delving into the Jewish history of Palma is both interesting & interactive. Our guide (Dani) is knowledgeable and full of passion, which is clearly reflected in the engaging way he leads the tour. He also injects humor and wit during the walk, while adapting to the groups age & ability – making this suitable for all who want to join. I highly recommend a tour with Jewish Mallorca for anyone & everyone who is interested in Palma, it’s beautiful streets, wonderful atmosphere & fascinating history.

Carol Goldberg

Dani, was such a treat! The day totally surpassed our expectations. He was personable, knowledgable, engaging,entertaining, and kept our interest with challenges to enhance the experience. He is a real mensche!! He helped bring the history alive, and gave us such an understanding of it. If you are there, don’t miss this!! Best on luck in your endeavors to further build the Jewish community in your home.

Audio Guide Reviews

Joshua Gunsberger

What an amazing walk-and-listen experience! Dani our guide was so genuine and his passion for such an amazing story made this tour fascinating. His pivot to offering incredible audio guided tours is unlike anything I have ever listened to before and is a cultural breath of fresh air!

Patrick Y

Smart, engaging, fascinating, interactive and so much history, experience and storytelling wrapped into this tour! Dani brings the history to life in an accessible way for anyone, so I couldn’t more highly recommend this!

Eric A. Heilig

This tour was amazing. The route showed us a side of Mallorca we did not know about. It was very interactive, fun and engaging and gave us a lot to think and talk about, something we do still up to today. Thank you for showing us this part of Jewish History and we can’t wait to return and explore more of it. We couldn’t recommend this audio guided tour more highly to anyone trying to do something very special during their stay on Mallorca.

Dani and Mariano, Thank you for the history lessons and cooking demonstration. Your videos of the streets and sites of Majorca were very interesting and put the historical anecdotes into context. A wonderful way to spend four hours. Jane and Steve Chernof from Milwaukee

Had such a wonderful experience participating in a virtual cooking class with Dani and Carla! We explored Jewish Majorca through stories, videos, and delicious food — such a fun, interactive experience for myself and my group! Would highly recommend.
