If you are on a short visit to Israel yet still wish to set a day tour that will cover major sites relating to history of the State of Israel and the Jewish People, this might be just the right offer for you. This Single Day tour is also ideal for a family visiting to mark the Bar-Mitzvah of one its members. We meet at Tel-Aviv, and driving by Independence Hall we review the significant event of Ben Gurion’s decleration of a Jewish state, and then head up to Jerusalem. After Latrun we get off the highway and join the 1948 “Burma Road”, learning about the battles around Jerusalem in 1948.
Upon reaching Jerusalem we park the car, and head to a tour by foot of the Jewish Quarter, the Western wall, and the visitors center of the “City of David“. These sites presents best the core of Jewish history from the time of King David, to our days. The tour could include a walk in “Hezekiah’s Tunnel“, or joining a tour of the “Western Wall tunnels“.

I am pleased to furnish this testimonial to Danny Herman’s abilities as a moreh derekh. Danny served as a private tour guide for a carload of my friends and family. From our base in Jerusalem, we went as far North as safety permitted, and Danny was able to suggest alternate routes, and to improvise parallel itineraries on short notice, so that we could take in a range of historical and contemporary-interest sites, as well as the archaeological and biblical points of interest.
Ultimately, our day included outdoor touring, Carmel, lunch with local Druze citizens, Megiddo, the Jezreel Valley, kibbutz beit alpha, the Jordan valley, and home, in one very full day of travel and learning. Danny filled the day with informative presentations, delivered in a genial manner that worked for all the members of our group, even though we were disparate in our own touring tastes. Danny was sensitive to the physical endurance limitations that some of our members needed to respect, while still giving the group as a whole a satisfyingly full day of touring and education.
I recommend his services wholeheartedly for the synagogue group I will be leading this coming October/November. While his certification is currently specific to archaeology, my experience is that he will be fully able to handle the range of explanations that our group will need, in order to have a meaningful tour.
