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
