I had limited time in Israel and an interest in history, archeology, culture and art. Danny was recommended by a colleague and we spent much of a day together visiting Jerusalem and discussing historical and contemporary topics, religion, war, peace...you name it. His depth of education - he has done significant postgraduate work - were a perfect fit for me.... More

We made last minute plans for a trip to Israel hoping to introduce our two boys (17 years old and 19 years old) to the country. We wanted them to learn about the history of Israel and gain an understanding of its people. We contacted Danny based on the Tripadvisor recommendations. He quickly helped us put together an itinerary and... More

We connected right away with Danny and although we had a very long and hot day he made it quite nice. His understanding and knowledge of the region is deep and he is an academic as well bringing another dimension to his explanations. We highly recommend him for any type of tour.

Two nice American girls contacted Danny for a day of exploration. Danny made arrangements (on short notice-completely my fault) and made our day spectacular. He highly encouraged us to visit Masada- which turned out to be spectacular. Danny was full of knowledge about the history of the palace and explained it in perfect English. We then traveled in his super... More

I have been to Israel many times. On our most recent trip, we traveled with Danny the Digger for three days and I can say, without reservation, that he is the most knowledgeable, personable, and accommodating guide I have ever encountered. The planning was flawless. Danny met us on schedule and we took off in his comfortable SUV for a... More

We had a great week long trip, with Danny, my wife and daughter (before her bat mitzvah). My daughter said it was one of the best trips - ever. And, she wants everyone to know that Danny made it very interesting, fun and easy to understand. We highly recommend Danny for anyone visiting Israel with either a Jewish or Christian... More

My boyfriend and I spent 2 days with Danny as our tour guide in Jerusalem and at Masada. His knowledge about Jerusalem is outstanding and even repeat visitors will learn something new from him. His archeological background made our trip to Masada with him really interesting and fun as well. Would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a tour... More

My husband and I enjoyed a tour with Danny on May 17, 2016, in Jerusalem. What a great tour! It was my first time in Jerusalem. And after traversing the winding streets and many levels of floors and history, I can't imagine having done it without him. Danny's archaeological and historical knowledge is astounding! The thing I liked most was... More

We had wonderful excursions with Danny to Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa and Cesarea. His knowledge and insight is outstanding and he makes the trips very interesting, fun, and pleasurable. Danny has great insights into history and also into current events and in addition the ride is very comfortable in his nice car.
