I just returned from my first trip to Israel, where because of business, I had only one day to spend in Jerusalem. On the recommendation of a colleague and friend, I got in touch with Danny via email, setting up a day with him in Jerusalem. My experience with Danny exceeded all my expectations and provided me with a complex,... More

I was by myself for the first part of the trip, and previous to my arrival I had contacted some co-workers about a tour guide. Danny came highly recommended from my associates. I talked to Danny via email prior to my... More

My wife and I travelled to Israel with 8 children, two nannies and a catholic priest. Danny showed us his country with a passion and flair that can only be delivered by a native, an archeaologist AND a Jew specializing in Christian archaeology. His knowledge, humor, resourcefulness, flexibility and charm allowed us to see Israel in a way you simply... More

We had a guided tour with Danny for a whole day in Jerusalem. Although I've been numerous times in Jerusalem, Danny still managed to tell us things I was unaware of. His insights and knowledge are quite remarkable. Highly recommended!

Danny guided a tour for my synagogue (group of 25) from Norfolk, VA. For 11 days, he was a constant source of fascinating information and commentary. His training as an archaeologist gives him an incredible insight into 4000 years of history. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Danny is a great guide and especially at archeology sites. His knowledge is outstanding. We toured City of David, Old City, Western Wall, Masada, Qumran, Zippori and numerous places showing the modern development of the State of Israel. A real pleasure!!!

Danny the Digger We had the fortune of spending two days with Danny A tour where the past is filtered through the eyes of a scientist, in particular the eyes of an archaeologist. As we explored the religious sites in the old city we were challenged with questions "is there a biblical reference to this site" and beyond that, "... More

My husband and I took a one day tour with Danny Herman through the City of David and the Southern Wall. Danny took his time to thoroughly explain the history of the area so that when we went on our tour we were able to really understand everything we saw. His knowledge of archaeology is top notch and he has... More

After spending a few days touring around Israel on my own, I had the pleasure of touring with Danny the Digger. On my own, I saw mosaics, and thought "Wow, amazing they lasted 2,000 years." With Danny, I was able to gain a far deeper understanding of why the mosaics were important, how the archaeologists found them and worked to... More
