My friend and I used Gilli as our tour guide on day trips to Masada and Ein Gedi, and also a day trip of the Old City in Jerusalem. Gilli is knowledgeable, personable, and professional, and made our tours incredibly interesting and fun. He is an engaging storyteller, and is able to share the deep history in ways that feel accessible and relevant. I hope to go on many more tours with him!

We ended up going on two tours with Gilli due to his excellent guidance! The first tour to Masada, Ein Gedi and the Dead Sea was even better than I could have expected. His passion for history and storytelling made Masada come alive, and he timed the day perfectly, giving us opportunities to eat and stay energized. On another day, we decided to take a tour with him to the old city of Jerusalem. Gilli clearly knows all the special and hidden spots while taking us to the major sites as well. Again, his ability to tell the story of the place as well as inform about modern Jerusalem life was great, and engaging. Plus, he knows where all the clean bathrooms are! I would highly recommend taking a tour with Gilli, and will do so again when I return to Israel.

Gilli knows all the ins and outs of Jerusalem - from the most famous sites to the secret, most beautiful spots you can only discover with a professional guide. The stories shared throughout the tour draw you closer and closer to discovering the city's layered history and learning about its daily complex existence. It was an unforgettable tour, that left me overwhelmed and more knowledgeable than what I had learned living in Jerusalem for over 30 years. I highly recommend a tour with Gilli.

Guides in Jerusalem know their history and the city. Almost always, you'll learn something and enjoy the unlike-any-other-city. Gilli adds love of Jersualem to his knowledge of the history, the politics, the architecture of this place. He brings over-sized maps and documents to add visual substance to the places you will visit. Between explanations of the first temple and then the crusades, he'll describe the energy you might "feel" and certainly hear as you listen to the Muslim mid-day prayer on a Friday. It's special kind of tour with a warmth you may not find with every guide.

Gilli Stern is an excellent tour guide. We had two tours of Old City Jerusalem with him. He is engaging, passionate and easy going. He took us to unusual out of the way places throughout the Old City that we ourselves would have no knowledge of, unique lodging houses of other countries, ie. Austrian House, along with known tourist sites. He presented historical and ancient religious history and opened up our minds and perspectives on how to understand what and where we were visiting. He took us to delicious places to eat and also to the the City of David, and Dome of the Rock!! Amazing and informative!!! Without reservation we recommend Gilli Stern.
