We had a group of 8 and were with Danny for 3 days. We learned so much! Being with an archeologist that was raised in this country, gave an even greater understanding to what you are seeing. He is very respectful no matter what your faith is, and will show you all the sights you must see while here. Very... More

Very nice visit of both Old Jaffa and Tel Aviv with an exceptional guide that gave me the opportunity to have a better understanding of that part of Israel in few hours! I was hoping to visit Jerusalem that day, but there were adverse weather conditions (snow) and Tel Aviv was the best option. I hope to have the opportunity... More

Danny did a wonderful job of bringing Israel's past and present to life through his archaeological and biblical knowledge as well has teaching skills. He was able to address the needs of a father (50) and daughter (20) that have different histories in Israel to engage both of us and ensure we both walked away from our time with a... More

Spending a day with Danny in Jerusalem turned out to be a very special day. Danny's wealth of knowledge was fantastic. His sense of humor added a fun to a day full of quality information. By my experience, Danny comes highly recommended!

Danny Herman knows his stuff and explains the archeology and biblical references in such a way that you feel the rich history of the land of Israel and get to understand how the geography and and the stories and the facts come together. This was my first trip to Israel and Danny helped our 3 generation family get the broad... More

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

With just 3 days for our first Israel trip (booked last-minute), my wife and I wanted to make the most of our short time there. We chose Danny because of his rich background: native-born, fluent in English, an Archeologist by training. He surpassed every expectation! He helped us craft an amazing three days -- Jerusalem, Jaffa, Caesarea, and the Galilee... More

Danny led our group on a three-hour tour of the Old City. He was probably the best tour guide I have had in my life, and I'm 68. He is an archeologist and an expert on the history and archeology of Jerusalem, including the history of the three major monotheistic religions. I've been studying Jewish history for decades and learned... More

Danny guided us through important cultural and historic sites in Jerusalem as well as Masada and the Dead Sea. He additionally arranged an excellent tour for us with others (Avraham and Galit) in Tel Aviv. His mastery of the history of this region is phenomenal and his passion for the subject material is infectious, thus engaging the attention of our... More
