About Know the Land
I am a private tour guide in The Land of Israel. I create tour experiences and not merely sightseeing tours... Licensed Tour Guide in English and Hebrew -Incoming Tourism, Pilgrimage, off the beaten path places… VIP special tours with luxury cars. I originally decided to become a tour guide in order to share with others my love of Israel, traveling across the country, knowing the land and meeting interesting people. A licensed tour guide by car, by bus or by foot in the land where milk and honey flows... Be well and come to Israel! Shai Shvalb

I‘ve been going on multiple trips with Shai for the past year. Without any doubt, those were the most amazing tours i‘ve had in Israel (and i‘ve been going on tours in israel a lot). Shai has deep knowledge in soooo many different fields. Sometimes I am so amazed by how rich his story-telling is, that i almost forget to listen. 😉 Whether it‘s (ancient-) history, culture, agriculture, geography, geology, religions or many more... you get excellent explanations and every question answered. He loves his country, with all the good and the bad that comes with it. And you will too. He really makes it feel like home. Shai has a way to plan trips so that it is very well balanced between guiding, teaching, spreading his knowledge and relax time such as the most amazing swimming spots, amazing restaurants, wine tastings or else. Showering you in recommendations for after your tour or your next visit to Israel. You will get excellent insights to israeli lifestyle. Far more than what you get by just „being a tourist“ This guide has the amazing ability to catch anyones attention and share his enthusiasm. Even kids, who are harder to catch when it’s summer and hot outside. You can feel that his priority is, to make you happy. And he will go all the way to reach this goal, even if it means changing the whole tour plan spontaneously. He will do everything he can, so that your experience will be remembered for eternity. Let Shai show you around in Israel and I promise you will go home with a very special spot reserved in your heart for Israel. Thanks Shai, looking forward to our next great trip together...

Shai was an incredible guide and friend to my group - especially as a first-time visitor myself. Shai served as an incredible wealth of knowledge to us during our 2-week stay in Israel. Candidly, I did not have a lot of context on Israeli / Jewish culture, history, religion, so having Shai there to answer all of my questions was incredibly valuable! If you’re traveling to Israel, I highly recommend using a guide - and even more highly recommend calling up Shai to be your guide! Thank you, Shai!
