About Me

  • Torah Based Tours

    I am an Orthodox Jew and bring the Torah perspective to all of my tours. Whether you are Jewish or not, if you would like to see the Land of Israel based on the Bible, I am the guide for you.

    Whether you’re 9 days old or 99 years old everyone in your group will have an awesome time. I have kids of my own and guide many families with kids on fun tours of Israel.

  • Knowledgeable

    In addition to the Tanach and Jewish History, I integrate the flora, fauna, archeology, architecture and topography into my tours.

  • Fun

    Besides visiting historical and holy sites I love to take people camel riding, wine tasting, rafting, hiking, chocolate making, fruit picking and more!

  • Licensed by the Ministry of Tourism

    Licensed guides go through a 2.5 year process to ensure that they are knowledgeable about the history of Israel as well as its  geography, architecture, religions, flora, fauna and more. I’m proudly licensed by the Israel Ministry of Tourism.
