We just returned from a wonderful trip to Israel, made especially memorable by Yaron. Our group of 10 toured with him and his driver Saeed for about a week. He provided a nice, comfortable Mercedes van. Yaron is very personable and fun, and very fluent in English and Hebrew. His knowledge of his country is extensive. He discussed history, geography, religion, architecture, politics, and culture. We now have a much better understanding of the region, not filtered by our local news media. We toured many areas of the country from north to south, and felt very safe in all areas. We feel very strongly that having a local guide is essential to maximizing the value of a trip. They will provide information not found in any guide book. I would highly recommend contacting Yaron if you are planning a trip to Israel.

I honestly feel my trip to Israel would not have been the same with another guide. Yaron made it special with his knowledge and love of his country. He also broadened my understanding of the history of Israel as well as the religious history regardless of your denomination. Yaron’s recommendations of restaurants was awesome as most of us are foodies and love good food. Yaron was fun, personable and patient with our group of 10. I highly recommend you plan your trip to Israel with Yaron. at: myIsraelguide.com Debbie H

Yaron’s knowledge of Israel is amazing. From local foodie favorites to rich historical insights and fascinating stories, we were in constant motion but also had enough time to relax and explore. Thank you for making our holiday a memorable one! Your love for your country really shines through and opened up a world that can’t be found by studying books and researching online. I highly recommend Yaron’s services!

Once again Yaron provided us with a tour of a lifetime! On short notice he was able to get us with my favorite Bethlehem driver, Maher on Christmas Eve who took us into Bethlehem! Yaron is always accommodating and willing to help us out! It just proves that he treats all of his past clients like family! If you go into Bethlehem, I highly recommend Maher! I have had him a few times, and he is the best! I always feel super safe and honestly like VIP. He goes above and beyond! On Christmas Eve, he linked us up with a tour guide in Bethlehem who gave us a tour inside the church and actually got us into the grotto for midnight mass!! It was a one of a kind experience! I will be forever grateful!! You can’t go wrong with Yaron and his connections!! I always know I am in the best of hands whenever I reach out to him! Thank you thank you thank you!

I highly recommend Yaron for groups, families, couples, friends and individuals who are looking for an amazing private tour. With an extended family of 12, we visited from Jerusalem to the sea of Galilee. The itinerary was a great mix of awe-inspiring historical sites, modern experiences and local day-to-day places all drawn together to provide a fascinating mosaic of Israel’s past, present and future. Thank you so much for an amazing experience Yaron!
