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.. (from “Google my Business“)
My name is Danny Herman, yet being an archaeologist for many years, I am known as “Danny the Digger“.
With my team 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 CEO, Google’s VP, Apple’s VP, Samsung’s President, 王石 Wang Shi, a few Noble Prize Winners, and even A Nigerian King..

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“).
Occasionally we are also involved with various Media production. See here a sample of Danny “The Digger” Herman presenting Beit She’an to “The Watchman” Erick Stakelbeck:
And here is a presentation of Herodium :

Alternatively we can set a special private tour to any of the HUNDREDS of destinations listed HERE.
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?
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).
On Shabbath and Holiday there is a $100 surcharge.
Are we worth it?
Well in 2019 we were awarded, again (for the Ninth time!..), with a “Certificate of Excellence” by “Tripadvisor”!.
And on “Google My Business” we have also received over 200 reviews, all with raving reviews :-).
Want to “Extreme” the tour?
Check out one of the many optional additional activities that can be included (for an extra cost..):
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
(9/2019) Impressions of a Mysterious Cultic center found in the City of David – Malchizedek’s shrine? or Shalem’s stone?..
Eli Shukrun is a friend since my years as an archaeology students at the Hebrew University. We took some classes together and stayed friends since. Later he joined me, and became a tour guide as well. Last week I happen to meet him while both of us were guiding at the City of David , and he invited me to join his presentation to his group of his own dig at the City of David at a section not opened yet to the public. Of course my group and I happily joined, and we were indeed taken to an area I didn’t know
(8/2019) New church found with decoration alluding to the “miracles of the multiplication of Loaves and fish”
In a recent article in “Haaretz” a sensational new discovery was presented – a mosaic floor of another church found in Hippos-Sussita . A discovery of an ancient church is not that rare, and four churches were already discovered in Sussita alone, but this was the first to be found at the site with an almost complete mosaic floor intact, and its decoration include fish and baskets, two of baskets even bearing 5 loaves of bread, matching the textual description of the “Miracle of the mulitplication of the loaves and fish (Mark 6). While it is indeed tempting to suggest that
