Danny was identified by a friend who lives in Jerusalem, so we were confident from the start that he had a great reputation. When my wife and I met Danny at our Tel Aviv Hotel a bit before 9 AM, he introduced the focus of the day and proceeded towards the old port city of Jaffa, just at the southern... More

We started up on Mount Scopus at the Hebrew University for an overview. Then he dropped us off at a coffee shop while he parked the car,... More

I have hired tour guides in many cities and countries. Danny the digger is the best I've ever had and would strongly recommend anybody who wants a tour guide in Israel to hire Danny. You will not regret it

Danny was an excellent guide on our tour through Jerusalem. We greatly enjoyed Danny's mix of architectural, religious and cultural expertise. He was thoughtful, engaging and always open to answering our questions. My husband and I mostly appreciated Danny's scholarly analysis of each site we visited throughout the city and found Jerusalem to be one of the most interesting places... More

We had an incredible 2-week tour with Danny Herman in May 2015, so much better than we had ever dreamed would be possible! Due to a disability, my husband has limited ability to walk or stand for long periods. Consequently, he moves fairly slowly with a cane and takes rests frequently. Our trip could not have been better managed or... More

He answered all of our many questions and his own archeological experiences as a digger,student and teacher contributed to a very meaningful experience. We will certainly ask Danny to... More
