(Father Beach, from Tripadvisor)


“My husband and I asked Danny to guide us on a 3-day tour outside of Jerusalem.. Danny is incredibly knowledgable on the biblical, historical and political information surrounding all the sites. Even though this is my 4th time in Israel, I learned so much from Danny & his unique perspective as an Israeli archeologist.

As a Christian, Danny has offered me so much insight into the life of Jesus as well.Danny was fully present with us and we definitely enjoyed getting to know him more than just a tour guide. We highly recommend Danny! His years of expertise and love for Israel will make your trip an unforgettable experience.”
