A couple of years ago, our first visit to Jerusalem was a cruise ship day excursion from Ashdod harbor and back. It consisted primarily of brief stops at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum, the Israel Dead Sea Scrolls Museum and the Western Wall. Nice, but we wanted more. This time around we had scheduled two full days in Jerusalem and... More

My husband and I spent two incredible days hiking, climbing, descending and crawling around, over and under Jerusalem with Danny Herman and could not believe how much we saw, did and learned in that short period of time. It’s obvious that Danny customizes each tour based on his clients’ desires, filling every minute with relevant historical stories and finding just... More

Danny the digger is smart, funny, cultural and one of the best tour guides I have ever had. On our way down from Masada in the tram line, another Israeli tour guide told his group Danny is the best tour guide in all of Israel. Some protested and wanted to believe their guide was the best. But, after a friendly... More

My wife and I had an amazing four days of touring with Danny “The Digger” Herman. Danny’s archeological, biblical and personal connection to the land were amazing. He made our first trip to Israel very memorable and exceeded our expectations in every way. We toured Jerusalem, Galilee, Dead Sea, Masada, Caesarea and Haifa with Danny. Each day was magical. I...

I participated in several earlier antiquities-focused guided tours (Egypt, Turkey, Israel). The 2013 BAS tour of Israel exceeded all of these by an order of magnitude, in depth, content and level of enthusiasm of our tour guide. Danny the Digger, a trained and very knowledgeable archeologist himself, helped us to see sites with the archeologist’s eye, discover the art of... More

My dad and I had only one day to explore Jerusalem; we are history buffs so it was important for us to hire a guide who could help us capture its history in a crisp, measured, unbiased and informed way. I selected Danny after careful research -- we even moved around our schedule to accommodate the one day that Danny... More

We had an amazing tour of Jerusalem from Danny. The vast knowledge he knows of this historical city is amazing.

…...This long weekend it was Danny the Digger who walked us through the history of Jerusalem. An Israeli guide / archaeologist who also teaches at the university and whose information devoured by all the guides in training. He offers the most amazing tours. Beforehand I mailed with him about my needs and the routes he proposed. So I wanted to... More

My family and I highly recommend Danny. We wanted a tour guide for a Jerusalem day tour. Our interests were varied in terms of who wanted more in-depth historical data vs. more of a ‘cliffs note’ version of different sites. Danny managed to temper all of our interests (5 adults). He was appealing, interesting and friendly. As I had a... More

This was my first trip to Israel and along with my co-workers we went for a tour of Jerusalem and of course Danny was our guide, Now I feel like I can guide someone -- that was the amount of facts and interesting things I learned. Danny can keep you entertained and give you the facts and tour like a... More
