“Group hikes with Ilan are a great way to hike Israel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I joined a group hike led by Ilan to the north of Israel. Everything was well organized, and Ilan picked a great location for our hike. Ilan is friendly, knowledgeable, and hardy --- what more could you want in a guide?

“Excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

We booked Ilan for a tour of "Christian" Galilee to start from the port in Haifa and end at a bus stop where we could catch a bus to Jerusalem for our overnight there. When we arrived in Haifa on our cruise ship Ilan was there as advertised at 7:30 am ready to go. He bought us a cup of coffee and off we went in his new, very clean Explorer type SUV. First he took us up thru Haifa, the German colony and beautiful tree lined neighborhoods to the top of Mt. Carmel and the Bahai gardens where we got a scenic overview of the port and city of Haifa and the gorgeous Bahai shrine and gardens. Ilan is very knowledgeable about the history of Israel in general and the all the major religions so he could talk at length about the region and every attraction we saw. From Haifa we went to Nazareth and along the way Ilan pointed out what was happening in Israel in terms of development. We visited the two big churches in Nazareth, then on to Mount Tabor, the Sea of Galilee, Capernaum and the Jordan River before he dropped us at our bus stop in the afernoon (he waited with us til the bus came, :-)....). We had a wonderful day and learned a lot. Ilan has extensive knowledge of Judaism, Christianity and Islam and can impart his knowledge without interjecting a lot of opinion which makes for an educational experience unmarred by politics which my husband and I really appreciated. I would highly recommend Trekis for your tour needs in Israel and I might add that Trekis was among the most reasonably priced of the the companies we checked out.

“Israel Shore Excursions - Affordable and upmarket quality private tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2011

We recently visited Haifa for 4 days on a cruise ship, and wanted to explore Israel. We don’t appreciate commercial and touristy shore excursions and big busses with crowds wrestling for photo opportunities, and therefore opted for a private tour. We were surprised to find that booking Ilan ( Trekis) for an entire day, with a very luxurious and spacious car, worked out more affordable than the big bus option. Ilan is highly qualified, extremely knowledgeable and has a good sense of humour - he gave us a very good overview of all the different historical, religious, political and cultural facets of Israel, without being biased. In a storytelling manner he put pieces of a complex puzzle together, which made individual sense to all of us in unique ways. Although we learnt alot during the time with him his easy approach made the process enjoyable and fun - and left us truly enriched. Ilan thankfully avoided the tourist traps and took us to special local places, which we thoroughly enjoyed. He is 110% reliable and competent, and very affordable, and we highly recommend him for anybody visiting Israel and looking for an above average and special experience.
