Tiyul - Jewish Journeys
6 reviews
A journey with Tiyul is more than just a vacation. It is the opportunity to visit not only the “traditional” sites and learn about the history, people and culture of a destination, but also to explore each country’s Jewish past and present within that larger context. We meet with members of Jewish communities, hear people’s stories and learn of the challenges they face. We visit synagogues, Jewish schools, and institutions in remote corners of the world and we celebrate Shabbat on Friday night dinners.

This was an awesome trip! Ariel was a superb organizer and secondary guide. Jacobo ws our Mexico City guide and we couldn't have asked for a better one!

Pyramids. Cathedrals. Historic synagogues. Stunning ancient artifacts. Colorful folk art. Mole and mescal in a huge underground grotto. Dancing to real mariachis on bright-colored boats as we floated down a canal surrounded by happy people and greenery. We had a wide variety of adventures and experiences in one of the most fascinating cities in the world, and all in the comfort of a well-appointed bus and in spite of dense Mexico City traffic. The trip was well balanced in terms of exposure to both specifically Jewish points of interest and more general tourist attractions. We had visited Mexico City before and were surprised and pleased with both the access to the Jewish community-- private religious schools, synagogues and community centers, as well as the quality of most of the guides who were able to give us interesting information about everything we were seeing, including things my husband and I had seen before. The chosen restaurants were good in terms of both food and ambience. The hotel was suitable with comfortable beds and attentive staff. The tour guides were also attentive to individual needs as they came up. But probably my favorite thing was the tour attendees themselves-- educated, intellectually curious, pleasant people eager to enjoy life and each other. One of my favorite trips of all time.

First off, my wife Jori, is offended that this review request only went out to me. That said, we enjoyed trip and found the hotel great with nice room with view of city; and decent breakfasts. Polanco as a hotel location was not as desirable or charming for us as being around the central plaza area or on Paseo de la Reforma near the Diana the Huntress Fountain. Tours of Jewish school and synagogues were interesting as were tours to Frida Kahlo Museum, Museum Nacional de Antropologia, Museo Soumaya and Teotihuacan. A positive was that at group meals we were allowed to order off the menu including drinks.

I had a wonderful time - one of the best trips I've ever taken. Well organized, thoughtful and informed trip leaders and organizers.

This trip was a perfect "fit" for us. A lovely combination of world-class tourist sites, Jewish community sites, and a tour group in which we felt very comfortable -- in a city we had never before thought of visiting. And it was our first venture into group touring after the years of covid. We will in future look to join Ariel's "tiyulim" as often as we can. [Highest praise and thanks to Yaakov as well. ] The hotel and restaurants along the way were generally of a very high standard, which we very much appreciated. This surely raised the price of the tour, but it was emphatically very good value-for-money. As for the tourist sites we visited, several comments: 1. Visiting the shrine of Guadalupe was unnecessary. [Time could have been used for something else. ] 2. Visiting Xotchimilco was fun, but it also could have been skipped [ ... if time was needed to visit something else. ] 3. We never got to see a mural by Diego Rivera. [I know there is no "central" Diego Rivera Murals museum in MEX, but to see at least one of his original murals would have been nice, during our week in Mexico City. ] There were 2 local women who guided the group over several days (e.g., at Zocalo, and at the Anthro. museum). Both were just outstanding. I mean Excellent !!! We never got to thank them personally. They were superb. [Thanks to Yaakov for having them be with us.] The very highest points of the tour for us were the many warm personal interactions with our 2 hosts Ariel and Yaakov.
