Presenting Jerusalem from Mount of Olives

My name is Danny Herman, yet being an archaeologist for many years,  I am known as “Danny the Digger“.

With my team we provide Private and VIP tours across Israel, with optional extensions to Jordan and Egypt

We cater many clients, institutions, and companies, especially High-Tech companies.

Over the years we also handled quite a few VIP projects. Just to name a few: Dr. Oz, Go Daddy’s CEOGoogle’s VP, Apple’s VPSamsung’s President王石 Wang Shi, a few Noble Prize Winners, and even A Nigerian King.. 

Occasionally Danny appears also on various TV shows, such as this presentation of Herodium   – 

Or several other sites –  


Judge G.T., Australia

We have just had 10 wonderful days with Danny. His extensive qualifications and experience as an archaeologist give him a depth of knowledge beyond any tour guide. Added to that, his guides are provided with warmth and humour, but always with a genuine respect for the historical and religious significance of the sites..

How long is a tour?
We work on a daily basis, and for about 10 hours

Where do we Meet?
It’s a private tour!. We meet at your hotel, or where ever you want!.

What is the cost?

My nice new comfy SUV..

Unfortunately it is hard to cash livestock, gold ingots, or even Saracean slaves any more.. :-). Being so, the cost is $600 USD for a day tour by foot.

For a tour + transportation I charge $650-$850 (up to 5-6 passengers, and depends on mileage).

Please note that we DO NOT offer group tours, of any sort. THANKS

Director G.H., Switzerland

Danny Herman goes beyond “guiding”. He is definitely NOT JUST ANY TOUR GUIDE. Danny plans, suggests alternatives, tailors tours, continually adjusting destinations according to his clients’ energies and interests… coming up with even more fascinating alternatives.. He is ideal for VIP executive tours. We highly recommend Danny for visitors to Israel looking to know the country in-depth.. (From “TripAdvisor“).

(02/20) A Rare Look at the Back Side of the Golgotha

Not every day do you get to be SOOO fortunate to have a private tour by one of the highest officials of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre  , but last week it actually happened to me! It started with a tour request of Jerusalem by the governor of Naxos, Mr. Ioannis Margaritis When we met he mentioned his cousin had a high function in the church of the Holy Sepulchre. When we met him I realized – he wasn’t kidding!. Father Bartholomew took us first to the John the Baptist “Prodromos” church  in the Christian Quarter , which he is in charge

(1/20) Visiting a Tomb of a Real Princess

Princess Alice of Battenberg  is a remarkable figure in the royal history of Europe. Born in 1885 in Windsor Castle, London to Second degree cousins (Ludwig von Battenberg and Victoria Princess of Hesse), it is perhaps not that surprising that she was death from birth. In 1903 when she was only 18 years old, Princess Alice was married to Andreas Prince of Greece, who she met a year earlier at the Coronation ceremony of Edward VII in London. The couple had four children, before being ousted in 1917 by Constantine, brother of Andrews from the Greek throne. Andreas and Alice

(12/19) The Location of Placing the Ark of the Covenant in Beth-Shemesh Discovered?

The book of Samuel mainly documents the struggles of the tribes of Israel against the Philistines, a struggle that eventually led to the kingdom by Saul and David, and the creation of Jerusalem as their capital. According to the Bible, the most sacred object of the tribes of Israel was the Ark of the Covenant, which contained the Tablets, the instructions of the God of Israel how to worship it. Given to Moses at Mount Sinai, the tablets in the ark were carried through the wilderness, and once the Israelites of conquered the “Promised Land” the ark was placed first

(11/19) David’s first capital discovered? The Quest for Biblical ZIKLAG.

Ziklag was was Biblical town within the kingdom of Achish , the Philistine king of Gath, and later part of the kingdom of Judah. According to the book of Samuel (I Sam. 17), although David slew Goliath, a native of Gat, he later approached Achish, king of Gat, seeking asylum from Saul. Achish gave him the site of Ziklag, where David and 600 of his man and their families settled for 16 months. David then raided against other villages, acting more like a bandit, and later even attempted to join Achish and a philistine army to fight Saul. His request

(10/2019) New Museum opens in Petra

In my last visit to Petra   I was pleasantly surprised to see a new Museum has being opened next to the main entrance to Petra. Free of charge (at least for now..) this new museum is a result of a $7M grant from Japan, and its spectacular modern design is made by Japanese architects Yamashita Sekkei. Its galleries present about 300 objects, 50 of them presented to the public for the first time. Additional artifacts are expected to be presented on loan from the Metropolitan Museum of art in New York. My favorite gallery was of the presentation of some
