Overview

My name is Yishay Shavit and I love Jerusalem; I love the people living here, the Old City, and the new, the Mah’ne Yehuda market and the Bad Cookery market, in short – there’s no place like Jerusalem. As a tour guide specializing in Jerusalem, I try to infect the groups and individuals I guide with this love.

Yishay is by far Israel’s, if not the world’s best tour guide. While sharing a balanced point of view on our 10-day tour, there was no detail left out. Our entire group was so impressed with his knowledge of history, it was like being guided...More

I have been to Israel several times on guided tours and Yishay was unequivocally the best I have seen. His university background in history translates into a genuine passion for what he does and a profoundly knowledgeable and informative insight into Israeli culture and history....More

Stop shopping around and book Yishay immediately. I toured with Yishay around Israel and he is by far the best tour guide I have ever had. His knowledge of Israel, its landmarks, histories and intricacies are second to none. He is kind, smart, funny and...More

Touring around Israel (not just Jerusalem) with Yishay was one of my favourite travel experiences ever. Yishay has deep knowledge of everything Israeli - ranging from contemporary art, agriculture and science to politics, history and religion. His guidance is thoughtful, balanced, and highly engaging.
