|“We are a Christian Family of five from the United States. Danny gave us an outstanding tour of Jerusalem and Herodion.
His Archaeology background and knowledge of the Old and the New Testament is impressive and his explanations brought the holy sites to life.
Our three teenage children loved his tours”
|“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.”
