Guide for Tzfat?

A number of guides have received good reviews on the forum --but hard to tell what they'e "speciality" is. We're not religious (I'm Jewish, husband is not), love Israel, history, and are interested in seeing artists at work, learning a bit about the history of Tzfat and Jewish mysticism. We have been to tzfat before, wandered around by ourselves, enjoyed the synagogues we saw and the art galleries but felt like we missed a lot. We'd like a guide who is lively, interesting, and will not make a tour seem like a lecture.

Here are some of the guides that have been mentioned. Which of these do you think might best fit the description of our interests? Any others you would recommend? We will be in Tzfat on a Sunday & Monday, but also will be nearby on Rosh Pina on Friday night & Shabbat. (we're splitting our time because we wanted to have the experience of the two very different atmospheres).

Our group used Aviva Minoff for a one-day tour of Tzfat in October 2012 and were very impressed by her expertise, fabulous stories, and humor. We highly recommend her for English tours. She has won three "Outstanding Tour Worker Awards" and we were captivated by her insight into this beautiful city. We could have spent longer in Tzfat as it is fascinating for it Kabbalistic history and fabulous shopping. Aviva can be reached at minoff@netvision.net.il or 050-5409187.
