    Danny, I cannot thank you enough for all the kindness you showed Anna and myself. You really outdid yourself and accommodated us with tremendous grace and poise. Our time at Cana will forever be remembered, as will the words balagan, the German who told us to exercise and you in your white slippers! Look forward […]

    Danny I was determined to explore some sites only with an archaeologist. After the first tour with you I knew you were knowledgeable, friendly, and willing to take the time necessary to get “real” information. The second time reinforced my impressions. Your knowledge of archaeology, history, geography and Biblical importance is remarkable!. Use me as […]


Shalom and welcome to Israel! 

2014 logo

I am an Israeli-born (“Sabra“), and a former IDF sergeant major (paratroopers).

I have an MA in archaeology as well as a Masters in Business Administation.

I lecture on archaeology at the Hebrew University  and at a number of Tour Guide courses  

Since 2007 I have been operating a private tour company,  offering the highest quality, customized touring experience across Israel.

I can also set transportation, accomodation, and nutrition  :-) , but above all, I strive to be a “cultural mediator”, presenting the Land of Israel, with all its tastes, beauty, sanctity, and complexity.

In 2014 I was awarded (again) with a “Certificate of Excellence” by “Trip Advisor”, based  on the sheer number of positive  testimonials, like the ones below:

If you are intersted in booking me (or one of MY TEAM), fill out this contact form, and I will be happy be at your service!


I look forward to hearing from you.

“Danny the Digger” Becomes “PLATINUM MAN”!..

14.8.14 I am very sorry to say that I broke the edge of my pelvis a few days ago. Making use of the ceasefire this last Saturday (9.8.14), I could finally take my kids on a bike ride to the new extreme bike park near us, yet at some point I fell bad on my […]

Guiding Hershel Shanks, editor of BAR!

For months I was waiting to the visit of Hershel Shanks, Editor of BAR, as we planned a tour to the north. The week before his arrival, Hamas started launching rockets at Israel. Yet both my summer class at the Hebrew U was executed, with only some minor changes, and this week Hershel showed up, and […]
