I have been on Israel tours before but none of them compared to the journey with Ido Keynan. He is more than a guide. He is certainly an historian, but beyond that, he is an actual archaeologist. On top of that he has amazing biblical insights connected to the Old and New Testament that exceed expectations. I wouldn't walk The Land with anyone else if I can help it.

I can’t imagine going to Israel and not having Ido as a tour guide. He is knowledgeable and very witty. You will feel safe and in good hands with Ido. He answers every question and can give you a wealth of information about his native land. He will even answer questions you didn’t think about asking. He loves the Lord and is a humble man. He loves his family and loves you as well, because you become his family. Such a great man. Your life will be richer for having met him. After one day you will be saying , “Family, We Walk” and “You ain’t seen nothing yet!”

How blessed we were to be in Ido’s presence for 10 of the most memorable days of our lives as he walked us through this beautiful and ancient land of Israel! Nothing is as contagious as his enthusiasm! He’s like manna straight from heaven! Ido Keynan is a professional tour guide with Sar-El Tours & Conferences and has 30+ years of experience. He literally brought the Bible to life! … in Technicolor!!! And if a picture is worth a thousand words, our hearts hold a million! God has uniquely gifted and qualified him to lead all those He places on Ido’s path. His extensive background and vast knowledge immediately immerses you in the enormous history of this AMAZING “Promised Land.” His education is in history as well as archeology which lends itself to so many rich and unique perspectives. He is also a believer and 7th generation Jew who is well versed in the scriptures and loves Jesus! He speaks 5 languages and is also a military officer with the IDF in Israel. He truly has the heart of a Patriot ~ it shows! He has a vast knowledge of history from a biblical, military and political perspective. This, coupled with his INCREDIBLE story-telling abilities, made for a most AMAZING experience! His light-hearted sense of humor, “Folks, you ain’t seen nothing yet!” and his love for Jesus made the Holy Land literally come alive for us! His fervor and passion for Israel ~ this AWESOME land that he loves ~ is contagious!!! And though spirituality is not easily defined, one can always tell when it is present; and Ido’s light shines ever so brightly! He’s a very genuine and “humble” man who simply loves Jesus! The quality of service he delivered as well as his professionalism are to be praised, and I cannot say this without mentioning our AMAZING bus driver, David Levi, who has been driving equally as long as Ido has been touring groups in Israel. They BOTH went far beyond the normal “helping hand” to ensure that our group had a good experience in the Holy Land and they make a most AMAZING team! Moses parted the Red Sea, but Ido and David parted the crowds! … : ) This level of service is unheard of in today’s world. They are to be praised for not only serving to the very best of their ability, but for also going “the extra mile” in their efforts. Shalom Ido and “Thank You” for your love poured out to us by the gallons! And even though there is a light in all of us, yours just seems to glow especially bright! May God bless you more and more for letting His life shine through you as you serve Him so faithfully! Your life truly brings honor to our Father’s name and we would be poorer without you in our lives. Until our paths cross again, we will continue to keep you and the people of this beautiful and ancient land of Israel in our prayers...”Family we walk!”

I spent 10 days in Israel this summer with Covenant Journey and can't imagine having been led by anyone other than Ido. Ido was more than just a tour guide to my group. He was a leader, a mentor, and a friend. The way he cared for our group of college students and took genuine interest in making Israel and its history applicable to our lives. He happily answered our questions, including some we didn't even think to ask. His knowledge of and attitude toward Israel are incredible yet he is so humble. No question was too unimportant or difficult for him. I felt that his goal was for us to learn and have a lasting experience, not just to listen to him talk for hours and forget it all by dinner. Ido definitely played a huge part in what I know was a life-changing trip for many people, including myself. I cannot say enough positive things about Ido or recommend him highly enough. His passion for Israel and knowledge is contagious. I am wholly convinced that Ido is the best tour guide out there.
