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

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.
