We were supposed to be in Israel for three whole days, but just before we arrived in Israel our cruise line shorted the first day to evening only. So suddenly we had only two days to see all that we had planned for the three-day visit. We had carefully laid out our three-day private tour with Danny's help to optimize the experience and now all was in disarray. When we met our guide Evan the first morning, he helped us to decide what portions of our itinerary could be saved and in about 10 minutes we had a new itinerary that kept all but the most distant locations that we had planned on. Evan was the perfect guide for our situation. He was extremely knowledgeable and interesting, focused his efforts to what we were most interested in, and watched the clock to make sure that we could squeeze in everything that we wanted to accomplish. Evan's ability to make changes on the fly made the trip a success. Danny's company, and Evan in particular, are the best.

Danny was our tour guide on a two day tour of the North of Israel for the students of the international masters program of public health at Hebrew University. Danny was not only the best tour guide, he’s a great story teller, he’s passionate about what he does, and becomes a real friend by the end of the trip. If you want a wholesome experience with an extremely knowledgeable man Danny the Digger is your guy.

This was a life changing experience - I would recommend this to any and all who want to have a full experience and deep understanding of what you are seeing in Israel. Danny is an expert who can add real background with his archeology experience - as well as his contemporary understanding and context for all the sites he will take you to. We loved every minute!
Danny is also great with children and young adults - could not recommend him more! hire Danny!

I booked a private tour with Danny after seeing him on YouTube. I had high expectations going in and it was better than I could have expected. Danny took us around the old city and talked about it’s history through history, archeology, and faith. It was absolutely fascinating and the highlight of the trip - we still talk about the tour! I don’t know if anyone has the knowledge that Danny has so do yourself a favor and book a tour before he gets too popular!

We got lucky to be able to book a last minute day tour of Jerusalem with Danny. He was very accommodating and personalized the tour to our preferences. We learned so much through his historical, religious and factual explanations throughout the entire day. His vehicle was a brand new, large SUV which made the long day very comfortable. Despite heavy traffic and parking difficulties, Danny did an excellent job at improvising and re-arranging the tour so we still managed to see all the spots we wanted and had a great time along the way. Truly a genuine guy to have a chat with and one of the best tour guides in Israel. Thank you tons, Danny. Greets from Dubai ;)

We had the most amazing experience with Pini, he was just fantastic. My mother is 73 years old and she is disable. Pini made sure that she was always well and at the same time he was giving us more information than any Encyclopedia! Besides being a great person, with great sense of humor, positive attitude and massive knowledge he was also very kind and understanding to our situation - having to walk slow, use a wheelchair etc and etc.
We feel very lucky to have had him as our guide and will definitely recommend anyone to call Danny and ask for Pini. He is the simply the best!

Danny is an exceptional tour guide, and he and his team exceeded all my expectations and made for a wonderful trip to Israel. In a week-long tour, he and his other tour guides (Pini and Ami) made each visit magical through their deep knowledge of history, their masterful storytelling, and their sharing of personal experiences and recommendations on the best hotels and local foods. After visiting the first few tour locations, I quickly knew I had chosen the right guide when the other tour guides warmly greeted Danny and volunteered that I had the best tour guide in Israel. I couldn’t agree more and have already started planning my next tour with Danny and his team.

I recently returned from a very comprehensive two week tour in Israel with my wife and daughter. My online research led me to hire Danny the Digger. I told him that this was our first trip and that I wanted to see as much as we could given our time line. After reviewing his proposed itinerary I was all in. We started our journey in Tel Aviv. After the first day we realized that his knowledge base of archeology, history and religion was extraordinary. His ability to tie the three together made the entire experience exceptional. From Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Caesarea, the Golan heights, Nazareth, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Masada he brought the history of this region to life. His team in Jordan did the same.
Everywhere we went in Israel he was recognized by other guides. They would come up to him and thank him for all of the knowledge that he shared with them online and on YouTube. He was like the rockstar of the guides. I would be remiss if I did not mention two of the people he works with. Ido Gruss, Who made all of our hotel arrangements in israel and Elizabeth O’Hanna who made our hotel and tour arrangements in Jordan (Wadi Rum and Petra).
Danny is a great guy and my entire family felt like he was part of our family by the end of the trip. We will never forget this amazing experience in Israel thanks to Danny.
I strongly urge you to use him if you travel to Israel for the experience of a lifetime.

Danny is THE complete package! Brains. Kindness. Humor. Patience. Always puts the visitor's needs 1st!
On my first trip to Israel recently, I happened to meet Danny at Capernaum while he was in the process of touring the site with a couple from America. I introduced myself to Danny because I recognized his voice from some of his YouTube vlogs I viewed while I was prepping for my trip. He took the time to talk with my father and I and at one point, he kindly asked us to gather around so we could take part in his discussion about the site. Not only did I notice the kindness he extended to us but his style was second to none. He asked us all questions, asked for input, opinions and ideas. He added humor when appropriate but also the perfect amounts of respect and reverence as befitted the importance of the holy sites. In addition, Danny's expertise in the field of Archaeology lent a reassuring scientific credibility to his interpretation of each holy site. Hire this expert! Turn your visit into the trip of a lifetime!
