Highly recommend by a friend, we were unbelievably fortunate to have David as our tour guide for the day in Israel! We had visited some of the major sites in Jerusalem earlier, but we hoped to get a feel for the city (and the country) and needed some guidance from a local expert. It was a truly amazing day of surprises and history! We visited spectacular sites starting with stunning viewpoints in Haifa and continuing into Jerusalem, visiting the Room of the Last Supper, the Israel Museum (The model of Jerusalem and the Dead Sea Scrolls are not to be missed! Awesome!) and sampling the delicious foods at the Machane Yehuda market, just to name a few of the fascinating locations. David was a very accommodating host, enlightening us and listening to us as well, giving us plenty of options and transporting us happily (and very safely!) around the city and readily assisting us with shopping guidance and language translation. Discussing with unique insight, David answered a variety of questions about agriculture, geography, population, religion, importance of sites - the why's and how's of living in Israel that we were very curious about. This was a full day's education on culture and lifestyle and led to a much deeper understanding of the history of not only the city but of the region and its thousands of years of history. When we return for more experiences like this we will definitely contact our new friend David! Thanks for reading!

Shalom KLTraveler11, Wow! What a whirlwind of a tour we had. From your Cruise ship in Haifa port to sites in Jerusalem. It was a long yet exhilarating tour day! Thanks for being such great tourists and for choosing me as your guide. Hurry back. There is always more to see. Always happy to make new friends! Let's keep in touch. Looking Forward, David

We had an amazing time!!! My wife and I and our three children (10, 7, and 3 years old), went touring with Dave today. He chose several interesting sites that my wife and I have never been to and our kids had a ton of fun. He’s affordable (but def would’ve paid more) flexible, we learned, and had a lot of fun. The downside was that it was )scorching) hot outside, but Dave chose shaded and underground sites and paced the trip and breaks accordingly. Definitely recommend!

Dave was recommended to me and I emailed him about options prior to our trip.

We were travelling to Israel with a 6 year old very energetic boy and 5 year old girl. I wanted them to see the desert and ride camels.

He suggested a desert activity with camel riding (eretz bereshit) which was perfect for us.

Prior to collecting us his communications were clear and helpful.

On collecting us in the morning from our hotel he was warm and friendly; throughout the day he was brilliant with our kids and very interesting and knowledgeable for us.

After the desert he suggested a couple of activities which were perfect - Mount Scopus and Munition Hill in Jerusalem.

His van is spacious; well air conditioned and has Wi-Fi.

Thank you so much for a great day out and all your energy, enthusiasm and good humour.

Definitely recommended and we look forward to seeing you again next time we visit.

The kids already want to see him again and remembered what he taught/showed them.

I had two days of amazing touring with Dave. My tour was completely personalized to my requests. Our first day was spent in Chevron and Rachel's tomb. Dave gave me the history of the area from the time of our forefathers until the 6 day war. We were even lucky enough to be in the Machpelah during a bris. Dave also managed to add two side trips in the area: one to 'The Lone Tree" and its importance during the War of Independence in 1948. And a stop at a memorial park in honor of 3 Jewish boys whose young lives were taken just a few years ago. All this just points out to me that the safety and security of theJewish state can never be taken for granted. The second day was spent in Jerusalem. Specifically The City of David and Hezekia's Tunnels (not the water side. This is February, after all). Again, Dave's knowledge of the area really brought it to life for me. And Dave had no problem with me taking my time shopping in the very lovely gift shop. We also ran into the former governor of Arkansas, Mike Hukckabee ( a strong supporter of Israel). One of my favorite things to do is to imagine myself in the time period of any historical site; how would I have lived at that time? Dave's breadth of knowledge helped me picture all that. On a pratical note, Dave has his own travel van and is the driver, which saved me money. (Don't worry, he can talk and drive at the same time).

Dave is an excellent tour guide! Very informative with 20 years of experience, also very patient with a family of 3 young children. He used our time very effectively taking us to all the important attractions on a pretty tight schedule. We enjoyed our trip and spending our vacation with Dave. 👍🏼👍🏼

Shalom Carmelita Thank you for this great review! I enjoyed leading you and your young family on a tour of Israel. We were able to concentrate on sites important to Christianity as well as places that were fun for your kids. I hope you will be able to come again and bring the family as the kids grow older. There is always more to experience in the Holy Land! Looking forward, David

Last week, my wife and I had a great time discovering parts of Israel during our first time visit to the country. Dave has a knack for telling great stories, and connecting the dots (both from a historical perspective as from a geopolitical perspective). I highly recommend Dave as a professional tour guide.

Thanks so much for this great review! I really enjoyed telling the stories and putting the history and geopolitics together for you and your wife. I hope you return to Israel and tour with me again very soon. There's always more stories to tell! Looking Forward, David Schoenfeld

Perfect all around. We are a family of four and booked David for a packed day in the desert. We felt like he was quickly able to “read the room” and structure the day in a way that was both memorable and also met our needs. David is incredibly knowledgeable. His stories were equally memorable as the sites themselves. Thank you for a great day!

My three kids and I spent 3 days with Dave touring Jerusalem, the Dead Sea, Masada and Ein Geti. Dave and I arranged the tour over email and phone and he was very receptive to all of my feedback and adapted accordingly. He came up with a great itinerary that we all enjoyed a lot. Dave is a great storyteller who kept my 15, 13, 11 old kids completely engaged and entertained. We learnt so much and had fun in the process, which is not a small feat! Time passed by so quickly and he definitely left us wanting more! Great experience. Highly recommendable!

Our family had a great time touring with David. We got so much more out of our visit of the Old City, Rosh HaNikra, Haifa and Akko with his explanation of its history. His story telling was was delivered in a way that was engaging for both my eleven and fourteen year old. It also helped to listen to him while standing in the areas he found us that had the most amazing views! We had a really enjoyable experience!

We took 3 grandchildren to Israel as a pre-BarMitzvah trip. We spent one day touring Hebron and Gush Etzion with David as well as a 2 day/ 1 night trip to the Gallil and Golan. We had many emails back and forth before this trip and were so impressed with David's guidance before we even met him. He helped us plan the days to meet our needs as well as giving us the benefit of his experience. The planning worked out so well, for we accomplished what we were looking to each day with David. Our grandsons learned so much about Israel, had a great time, and were engaged in everything that David planned for them. They especially enjoyed rafting on the Jordan River and going through mud tunnels of the Beyar Aquaduct. And they learned so much about past and present Israel. David's flexibility, knowledge, patience and sense of fun helped make this a memorable trip. The fact that he has a 8 passenger van was an added benefit as we did not have to hassle with renting a car. He was truely friendly, warm and caring toward all those with whom he came in contact. He brought smiles to all of us and he genuinely went out of his way to please.
