Thanks to Zel Lederman we got an outstanding half-day 4x4 tour of Negev from Sde Baker through the stretch of Zin Valley. Arthur did an excellent job by making us feeling the Biblical desert, its soil, plants, and the elusive animal life. We also got a glimpse of the Sde Boker kibbutz life and spirit. Thanks a lot-Alex and Galena.

Each of our guides was thoroughly knowledgeable about his or her areas, each brought enthusiasm and a desire for us to truly learn from our interactions. Everything... More

Gary Littwin planned the perfect tour for us. His experience, knowledge, and personalized attention greatly enhanced our visit to Israel. Galilee and the Golan Heights were especially memorable. We went to Israel to see Biblical sites but we learned so much more! When we return to Israel we will book with Gary.

Our guide, Tal Megged, was fantastic. She knew her stuff and could speak from any perspective. She even taught me a little about my own religion! Her description of the history of the sites and the formation of Jerusalem was impressive. Worth every penny - errr.... Shekel! :)
