    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.

    “The best guide I ever had!“


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.

Funding Project to Excavate the Eastern Tower in Herodium

Following Patrich and Arubas, Shanks, and my own similar opinions, I am promoting a Funding project to excavate the Eastern Tower in Herodium.
