My husband and I had a wonderful tour of Old Jerusalem with Shmuel Browns. His knowledge is considerable and the manner in which he conveyed information to us is clear evidence of his passion and excitement for the Old City and Israel. We highly recommend him as a tour guide.

We've spent almost two days with Shmuel visiting Herodium (if you don't know what it is, look it up and ask Shmuel to take you there, you won't be disappointed) and Jerusalem. As a fellow tourist guide I must say that Shmuel does know his history and architecture and without him it would have been difficult if not impossible to make sense of the convoluted history of Jerusalem. We have thoroughly enjoyed his tours and I won't hesitate to recommend him as a knowledgeble and reliable tourist guide.…

This was our second experience with Shmuel. We used him in 2016, also. He will take you to all of the important historical sites and explain in great detail. He is personable and I would use him again on our next visit to the Old City.

Shmuel picked us up promptly at 4:00 pm outside the Jaffa Gate in Jerusalem. Our destination was the Dead Sea. Along the way we stopped and photographed Bedouin shepherds. Shmuel then surprised us by stopping where we had a great view of St. George's monastery. Shmuel was very informative and helped us communicate with the local people. We got some amazing sunrise photos at the Dead Sea, we hiked through canyons and got lots of cool shots there, then Shmuel found some unique salt formations back at the Dead Sea. We captured some great photos of sinkholes. To sum it up this was the highlight of our 17 day trip to Israel. Shmuel delivered beyond our greatest expectations.…

Shmuel had so much knowledge to share with you and his method was one of storytelling, no lecturing. You could see his passion. He really made Israel come alive.
