      Dear Mr. Herman, I would like to thank you for the hospitality and friendship you showed to me and my associates during our stay in Israel.

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.

Rockets are Flying, and I am Touring with Hershel Shanks!

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 with his Jeruslaem correspandance, Sue Singer, and his daughter, Julia Shanks, and their spouses, we went for a great day of touring the north, visiting Beth Shearim , Sepphoris , and Magdala  (!).

The next day, I was honored to have my other “Rabbi” Dr. Gabi Barkay lecture and guide my class, and when we headed to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre  , Hershel joined us again!

Hamas is perhaps trying to terrorize our lives in Israel, but so far he’s mostly terrorizing the lives of his own people in Gaza strip.

The following night I was invited to a special dinner event “BAS at 40″ held at the Israel Museum. Was very moving to see Hershel speaking about his life project, and the many attending the event and blessing him. I felt so honored to personally guide him just two days before!
