Shachar is an amazing guide. His knowledge of history both ancient and recent is incredible. His delivery of so many stories was delightful. He was always careful to provide facts in a way that didn’t carry any bias. With so many opinions on historical facts and meanings, he didn’t drive his too deeply and made us feel comfortable yet informed. I wholeheartedly recommend his tour to anyone. We had a wonderful time for all three days. He took great care of us even arranging a Jeep tour through the desert. We had a wonderful time and felt we were saying goodbye to a good friend when we left. 5 stars all the way.

Although this was mostly driving to the North Sea of Galilee and places of interest there- Shachar filled us with historical stories the entire day. We stopped at various places and had the history already in mind before we reached each stop. He is an excellent historian and personable guide. We felt like we made a friend in Israel immediately. He made all the arrangements - paid all the entrance fees - and generally took care of us. Stories of his wife’s endeavors in the area of archeology were exceptionally interesting and unusual. Highly recommend booking him early!!

Shachar is a walking Wikipedia. He knows something about everything in the history of ancient and current Israel. This was our first visit and he covered almost the entire country with an ongoing documentary. From walking to drive by to all terrain in the mountains- we were always expectant and never disappointed.

We had a great time with Shachar! Very knowledgeable and great at explaining in an interesting and engaging way. He also knows the area exceedingly well. There were many road closures due to Biden’s visit that he was able to navigate and still provide an amazing experience. I highly recommend and would absolutely use him again. He paid our entrance fees, bought us waters, breads and snacks and juices in the old city, which really helped to enhance our experience.
