What People are Saying

Sori Levitansky

Tour Guide Aaron was great. WE wished we booked him for more days than we did. He took us to the “inside” of Israel and the “inside” of the Tanach. Clearly depicted stories from the prophets and showed us many interesting things. Highly recommend!!!… Read More

To interest an 11 and 14 year old from America and make the sites/sights come alive is not an easy task. Aaron Shaffier did an amazing job of it. Thanks much for making my grandson’s trip so memorable… Read More

Many people don't realize that before the "Islamic Revolution" in 1979, Iran was a highly advanced and liberal country. It was also on good terms with Israel. 
The Iranian people are an ancient and great people. They have a wonderful culture of music, poetry, literature and art as well as science and medicine. 
The Persian king Cyrus the Great gave the order to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem 2,500 years ago. 
I believe that such a great people will not be held down forever. The people of Israel love and respect the people of Iran. I look forward to visiting one day soon when the people once again rule Iran! 
Much love to my thousands of Iranian followers! 😍😍😍😍😍😍

Abshalom was an arrogant and rebellious child of King David. The Tanach tells that he made himself a monument in the Kidron Valley so he would be remembered after his death. 
This is traditionally identified as the monument and called "Yad Abshalom". Archeologists say it is no older than the first century BCE, almost a thousand years after King David. Professor Gaby Barkai suggests that it may belong to King Agrippas I. 🇮🇱🇮🇱🇮🇱 #Jerusalem #archaeology #history #jewish #israel #travel #tour #tourism #tomb
