Private Tour Guide in Israel
I live in Jerusalem with my wife Pascale. We have four children: Itai, Sarah, Ouri, and Ela.
After graduating from a local Jerusalem high school, I graduated from the Ministry of Tourism’s tour guide course, and have been guiding tours in Israel for over twenty-five years. In 1990 I was chosen by the Israeli Government to guide heads of state and other major dignitaries from all over the world, including Mr. Mitterand and Mr. Gorbachev.
From Interfaith pilgrimages to theme tours dedicated to geopolitics, Israeli minorities, the dynamic Israeli hi-tech industry, or environmental issues, I am prepared to delight and surprise you.
I particularly enjoy spending the school holidays or summer break guiding families, motivating and teaching children about Israel, while they have a fantastic and fun visit.
Creating an itinerary that the entire family will enjoy, I plan activities geared for all ages and interests, from taking part in archaeological digs, planting trees, and visiting ancient and modern historical sites to riding camels in the desert, driving ATVs, going on jeep tours, and rappelling down cliffs.
Two to three times a year, I conduct international Jewish history and art tours outside Israel and lecture about Israel in Western Europe. I love this fascinating informal meeting with travellers.
I look forward to guiding you and showing you Israel’s treasures and hidden delights! Prepare to be enlightened and surprised!
