Shalom and Welcome to Israel!
My name is Danny Herman (a.k.a “Danny the Digger“), and I specialize in private guided tours across the Holy Land.
With an MA in Archaeology, and MBA, and a teaching position in Hebrew University , I provide a unique and high level touring experience.
See a sample of single day tour offers below:
I can also include “Extreme” activities, accommodation, and nutrition :-), but mostly I try to act as a “cultrual mediator” introducing the Holy Land with all it beauties, sanctities – and complexities..
See a demo of me guiding the “Three Surfers” (the Gudauskas brothers) across Jerusalem:
How long is a tour?
I work on a daily basis, and for about 10 hours. For more then 12 hours you could add a tip.
Where do we Meet?
It’s a private tour!. We meet at your hotel, or where ever you want!.
What is the cost?
$500 USD for a day tour by foot, $600-$800 for a full day tour + transportation (up to 7 passengers, and depends on mileage).
$100 reduction for half a day tour (up to 4 hours).
Am I worth it? Well in 2015 I was awarded, again (for the fifth time!..), with a “Certificate of Excellence” by “Tripadvisor”, based on the sheer number of positive testimonials, like the ones below:

Recently I had an oppurtunity to visit an exhibition set by the children of Menashe Kadishman in his memory.
Kadishman is one of the most important artists in Israel, with works on display in world leading musuems.
I had the honor of meating him some ten years ago, introducing him to a client.
I’ll neve forget his charm, smile, and torn and stained t-shirt..
I cherish to this day a small bronze face he gave me.
The current exhibition will close by October 25th, but I hope these photos can deliver to a wider audience the art of this exceptional man.
