The essence of Jerusalem's Old City. Join me on a fascinating walking tour of the most famous sites within the walled city including the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Temple Mount as well as numerous other beautiful sites off the beaten track. My specialty is making the complex history of this dense city accessible through thought-provoking insights and anecdotes. If you love to learn and are fascinated by history and religion, there is absolutely nothing more intellectually stimulating than an intense day touring Jerusalem.

Jonathan is legitimately one of the best tour guides in Israel. He is a brilliant combination of scholar and teacher. It is not only clear that he has an extensive understanding of the history of the sites here, but he is one of the most effective teachers I have seen here. He has a gift for telling the stories of the places you will visit.

Jonathan was the consummate tour guide. He was able to both challenge and inform our group of theology graduate students, curating a bespoke experience based on site availability and student interests. His enthusiasm is infectious and he knows how to “read” his audience. As a bonus, he shared a bit of his own personal story and love for the Holy Land. What a privilege to see so much through his eyes and make it our own. Toda raba, Jonathan!

We are a global startup company, which includes employees from all over the world. We were looking for an English-speaking guide who could take us on a day trip around the important sites of Jerusalem. The experience with Jonathan from the beginning (planning the day's agenda) to the end ( the tour itself) was excellent. It is clear that Jonathan has amazing knowledge of Jerusalem, and he is bringing with him good vibes and a fun atmosphere throughout the day! We will not hesitate to hire him for the next trip. Highly recommended!

My adult children and I had the good fortune to book a private tour of The Old City of Jerusalem with Jonathan. His extensive historical knowledge was remarkable as well as his knowledge of the back ways to get places. This gave us insight into how those that still live in the city, as well as those who lived in ancient times might have lived. In addition, Jonathan answered all our questions. I now have a much better understanding of the history that I never could quite grasp prior to his explanations. All in all, it was an enriching experience. To be frank I was skeptical at first as to why we needed a guide. Our family loves to explore, but I readily admit Jonathan added so much clarity to our experience in so many ways we could not have anticipated. This included choosing an authentic can marvelously place to have lunch! If you are considering Jonathan, don’t waste another minute, take my advice and Book It!
