      Best tour guide ever
      Meir was our tour guide for most of our vacation and was amazing. Our family (three generations) went all over Israel with Meir - from the Dead Sea to the Kinneret - no, actually to the Lebanese border. Meir was not only an expert on every single place we went, but regaled us with tons of knowledge throughout the van rides as we toured the country. From the sites and history to the State of Israel to Judaism and Torah to Islam, Christianity and the other religions in the area, Meir knew it all. And all of that wasn't just wonderful for the adults in our group - Meir was also able to engage our young children. And, our kids' attention spans aren't much different than other kids so that's a real accomplishment. This was my third trip to Israel so I've had a number of tour guides. Until Meir, I'd say they were all good. In retrospect, I still think that, but the fact that Meir was head and shoulders above them, speaks to just how amazing Meir is. To top it off, he's also just a good guys and likeable - somebody you could be friends with.

      Incredible experience
      Meir is an incredibly knowledgeable and engaging guide who expertly tailored 10 days with my 3 generation family to suit each person’s needs. He traveled around the country with us showing us the well known highlights as well as hidden gems. He is patient and kind and was loved by all the kids and adults. He is highly trained and well-read and was never stumped by the challenging questions asked by our group. Many of us have traveled to Israel several times, but his guiding was equally appreciated by the first time visitors and Israel veterans. We’ll definitely be back to travel with him again!

      Tour of old Jerusalem city, Jericho, Bethlehem, Tiberia, River Jordan and Dead Sea.
      The tour guide (Mier) was very professional, knowledgeable and patient with the group (27 adult in total). He went out of his way to please the group. We are all pleased with the excellent service he rendered. Will definitely recommend him and his company.

      We traveled with Meir for eight days and saw about 27 different sites throughout Israel. Meir is very knowledgeable and explained everything we were seeing. He could answer any question we asked. He is very nice and personable. I can’t imagine a better guide!

      Shul 10 day tour of Jerusalem/ Tel Aviv and north
      Mr. More was very knowledgeable regarding sites, history, geography and climate. A running commentary of what we saw as we saw it would have further enhanced the touring.That is a minor quibble within an excellent experience. His physical fitness and humor further enhanced the tour.

      Half a day tour of Old City of Jerusalem
      Meir More is a great guide and a very kind person: we enjoyed our private tour of the Old City of Jerusalem, he guided us through its streets, hidden places and old secrets. We asked him several questions, including on recent developments in Israeli politics and society and he really enjoyed answering our questions. Highly recommended!

      SeenAger Tour
      We started mostly as a group of strangers, all from different walks of life. We grew to know each other and ended as friends sharing a common bond.. Israel. Many were "first timers" but we had people who were making repeat visits. Between my husband and myself, this was our 12th. To say every time we visit Israel, we see and feel something we haven't experienced before is an understatement. But it's not only the itinerary, it's also the Guide. What luck we had to have Meir guiding us. His zest for Israel is infectious. He was eager to impart his knowledge and love of the State and it was completely to our benefit. He not only wanted us to see Israel but he wanted us to taste it. He stopped the bus at fruit stands bought us medjool dates and persimmons. When we had good luck with the traffic and were ahead of schedule, he didn't quit early, he took us to other sites off the itinerary. After long and wonderful days, we arrived back at our hotel tired and happy. We were a group of about 20 and no one was ever late for morning roll call simply because we couldn't wait for another day to begin. Meir our skilled driver, Stan our personality plus escort/shepherd and Meir our outstanding Guide showed us Israel again as if for the first time. Stan and JoAnn

      I personally cannot say enough about how wonderful and informative Meir is as a person and a tour guide! We are all so enlightened by the things we did and learned! We spent 11 days together and it still left us wanting More! Pun intended! We laughed and joked and sang with Meir. We are so blessed to have enjoyed his knowledge and incredible insights about Israel! I personally would have loved even more time with him! We all agreed that we came away with so much knowledge that it will take some time to process! I highly recommend Meir More as you next perfect way to see his beautiful country!

      Leontine Cohen Jérusalem Tour Guide
      We had a delightful tour with Leontine. She is a master at sussing out one’s unique interests and adapting her tours to accommodate. We started at the Makane Yehuda market where we sampled culinary delights! We saw artisans with co temporary appeal, Lear Ed about the development of West Jerusalem’s neighborhoods, so interesting, the people, their ways, etc. we finished with an interesting site that helped us visualize what actually lays under the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Golgotha and the tomb. This was great as a Byzantine church can be difficult to create imagination of what is was like there in the first century. Great tour, lovely guide, really she is so nice and smart. Thank you Leontine!

      A better tour guide than Meir More you will not find! My wife and I were very fortunate to have Meir as our guide to tour Israel. Meir brought knowledge, experience, professionalism and fun. Meir has a very enjoyable personality and a keen understanding of Israel, past, present and future, both locally, by region, nationally and as a global contributing country. He is very personable and social with those we met along the tour, making us feel welcome and of interest to the many cultures and faiths of this amazing country. Meir is flexible and offers adventure, discovery and personal observations about Israel that reflect his citizenry and his appreciation for visitors/tourists with varying interests; making it very suitable for him to customize the guide to the customer first mentality. His transportation was very comfortable and he would engage you on any questions or comments, concerns or suggestions to making our tour top notch. I highly recommend Meir More as a guide to tour Israel.

      Trip of a lifetime!
      Phyllis and Jordan are huge fans of Meir! He made our visit a wonderful experience. He is very knowledgeable, creative, flexible, and caring. He is friendly, easy-going, and we felt very comfortable spending time with him. Meir was our guide for 3 fantastic days in Jerusalem and an amazing fourth day traveling to Masada and the Dead Sea. He even convinced me to get on a camel and I survived! This was our first trip to Israel and we simply must go again. We highly recommend Meir and look forward to engaging him on our next trip.

      Amazing tour of Israel with an outstanding guide Meir Moore
      My husband and I had the tour of a lifetime with Meir More . We traveled for 2 weeks all over Israel. He is passionate about history and extremely knowledgeable. Meir makes the tour fun, knows the best places for lunch and knows the places to see. Because of him we will miss Israel and can’t wait to plan our return trip.

      Jerusalem / Dead Sea trip - April 2019
      Meir was recommended to us by a friend of a friend and we couldn’t have been happier! He was efficient, easy to work with, extremely knowledgeable, friendly and a pleasure to spend time with. Meir guided us for a 3 days in Jerusalem which included a day to Masada and The Dead Sea. This was my teenage and preteen daughters first experience of Israel and a very positive one. My family and I couldn’t recommend Meir highly enough- nothing is too much trouble. We would certainly use his services again when returning to Israel.

    Meir is a great guide- highly recommended. He is very engaging and openly shares his knowledge of Jerusalem history. We didn't know much about the subject and he stepped us through the history in a logical manner so we could get an understanding of key historical moments. He knows his way around the Old City and we easily avoided high traffic areas and saw a few extra things as a result.

    We have just spent the most enjoyable 10 days touring Israel with Meir. From Eilat to the old city Jerusalem, Dead Sea, Galilee, a Kibbutz, Golan Heights and everything in between- What an experience! We came knowing very little about the history, politics and religious diversity of the country and we leave with a wealth of information about all facets of life in Israel, both past and present. Meir is extremely knowledgeable, informative, entertaining and personable. We could not recommend him highly enough. Do not hesitate to engage his services, you will not be disappointed.
    Thank you Meir for an experience of a lifetime!

    Three years ago my mother went on a group tour to Israel. Her tour guide was Meir. She has since passed away but she loved him so much I decided to book a private tour with him for my sister, my daughter (who lives in Tel Aviv) and myself. I have just retired and spent a month engaging in 3 different levels of tours (group, budget, private). I can honestly say that touring with Meir is at the top of the list. I had been to Jerusalem many times, but Meir made it an educational experience of the best kind. He is extremely knowledgeable and was willing to answer any and all questions. He encouraged important dialogue with my daughter who made aliyah a few years ago. He also was able to break things down for my sister who was less knowledgeable of the region's issues and traditional Judaism in general. It was very personalized and meaningful. Since we are Jewish, Meir understood the importance of our connection to our ancestral roots, yet he was also able to discuss how the other religions of the region live and thrive as well. Thanks to Israel and its commitment to religious freedom and security, we felt safe throughout the areas we traveled in. Unfortunately we were unable to travel to the Muslim quarter (safety is always an issue there which is why a tour guide is very helpful ) , yet the Christian quarter is safe and thriving with tourists free to see their protected holy sites. We saw all of them. We of course stopped at the Wall to pray and admire this incredible holy site. And then there was the food. Meir brought us to a great traditional houmas place for lunch. Yum! Thank you Meir for the wonderful experience and helping us honor the memory of our Mom/Grandmother Stella with this tour.

    Meir is pleasant and quite detailed with all the information one could possibly ask for in a professional tour guide. Our time spent covered all we had hoped for including a surprise recommended visit to an anti terror training facility. His claim to fame is certainly archeological detail. Add to that his flexibility in adjusting to your style of touring makes for a thoroughly enjoyable journey from the Old City in Jerusalem to Yad Vashem , West Bank, territories, the markets, Masada and the Dead Sea.

    We went on a walking tour of Old Jerusalem with Meir for a couple of hours and I only wished we had had more time! He knows is stuff, adapted the tour to what our group was interested in. you can tell he is passionate and does this more for fun than for a living. It was refreshing to have a guide that did not sound like a tape recorder.
    I highly recommend him without any hesitation!

    We went on an evening tour of the city with Clients from Italy so we had very little time to experience the city. Adopting to our preferences, Meir showed us around Jerusalem's old city including its major important highlights in 4-5 hours. From the city's history to it's intricate Geopolitical situation today, Meir was ex termly knowledgeable about every detail and did not leave one question unanswered - He was the perfect guide for our night out!

    Meir left us with a taste for more so we would definitely use his services again, not to mention recommend him to anyone - local or foreign!

    Thanks Meir!

    Meir was absolutely awesome. His knowledge of the Old City, Galilee and the Bible was truly amazing. We spent two days with Meir and he customized our journey to fit our desires. His vehicle was very clean and his expertise getting around a very busy touring sites was remarkable. Meir provides excellent customer service and he definitely “went the extra mile” for my wife and I. We were also so pleased to travel with such a kind, humble and knowledgeable tour guide. I most highly recommend Meir More as a your private tour guide. I am definitely letting all of my friends whom which to visit Israel about this great man. God Bless you Meir!!
