Enjoy a jewish tour to warm your soul

Hi, my name is Valeria Duek.

I was born, raised and educated in Buenos Aires.

Regarding my Jewish education, I attended the elementary school Bet-El, which belongs to the congregation of the same name, founded by the Rabbi Marshall Meyer, who also created the Seminario Rabínico Latinoamericano, where I continued my Judaic studies at the Solomon Shechter Institute.

After studying at the University of Tel Aviv for a year, I came back to Argentina where I graduated as a Psychologist from the University of Buenos Aires.

After years of working in Human Resources departments of several multinational companies I felt the need to do something that fully represented who I am: deeply in love with Argentina and passionate about my Judaism.

My great-grandparents arrived from Syria over one-hundred years ago. My family history and my passion for showing that which I love, led me to start guiding these tours providing a complete Jewish experience in Buenos Aires.

On a personal note, I would like to thank my beloved parents for providing me with the finest education; my teachers who taught me to think by myself regardless of the circumstances, which was not an easy task considering that I grew up during a dictatorship; and my clients, who challenge me every day, allowing me to discover that there is always something new to learn and to show.

Last but not least, I would like to thank my husband, who always encouraged me to pursue this dream.

Jewish tours to warm your soul.

"In our Hadassah monthly magazine, it had an article about Buenos Aires and about Jewish tours. My wife Patricia and I contacted Valeria and were delighted with our 3 hour tour. Valeria met us at our hotel and took us around the city to important Jewish spots. We also talked about the future of the huge Jewish community in BA. Highly recommended."

"Dear Valeria, It was a sincere pleasure meeting you. Lynda and want to thank you for two outstanding days in Buenos Aires. We could not have had a better time than we had with you, as your plans for the two days were fantastic. Our two days with you we felt were the highlight of our wonderful trip to South America. Please thank the two drivers as well as they were excellent in getting us around your beautiful city. With most kindest regards,
Lynda and Gil Kessler
"Valeria was an amazing guide. Very personable, knowledgeable and spoke phenomenal English. We were sad to leave her after spending a great half day with her. This was not only a Jewish tour but also a private tour of Buenos Aires. Highly recommended."
