We are a couple who joined the Galilean autumn vibes tour. It was a great and challenging hike, and I mean challenging in the positive sense. The only complaint I have is that we carried swim gear for a 16km hike that wasn't necessary because they cancelled the swimming portion when we arrived there.

I've been on more trips with Finjan than I can count now, from deep in the Negev to the upper Galilee. Steve and Ariel go the extra mile (literally) to take people on unique tours in hard-to-reach areas of the country. It's an especially good company to hike with if you are a foreigner residing in Israel - but in any case, everyone that goes on the tours speaks English. The full-day hiking trips do require a reasonable level of fitness, but Steve and Ariel always keep safety a priority.

I am an archaeologist from America (but living in Israel) and have been on five Finjan hikes, to date, and cannot recommend this company enough. Their treks are always unique and creative, and are the perfect combination of fun, informative, and adventure meant to give you a well-rounded experience. Steve and Ariel's vast knowledge of ancient and modern history, geography, flora and fauna, and local cultures of the region is incredible and they are sincere, trustworthy, safety-first minded, and all-around great individuals. If you are looking for an authentic and exceptional Israeli experience that you will never forget, these are your guys.

I've been on 3 group trips with Finjan, and each time I've been very impressed
Ariel and Steve give excellent explanations of history and geography of the places we pass.
The group is well organized
The trails are very beautiful
And the 3 times I joined the group trips, I met very interesting people and made new friends.
Highly recommended.

As the President and Founder of a Hospitality Consulting Company that works with hotels, resorts, corporations and entire cities internationally, I have just spent two enriching days with Stephen Rubin of Finjan in both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. I cannot say enough about his vast knowledge, his infinite wisdom and flexibility and his true connection to whomever he has close to him at a given time. His sincerity and kindness transcended the experience I had, and without a doubt, I would recommend his services to anyone and everyone that is looking for a personalized, complete and creative experience in Israel. BRAVO Steve.

We went on the star gazing tour in the desert (Ramon crater). Finjan brought awesome telescopes and a great guide explaining the stars and planets in the night sky. We slept in sleeping bags without a tent. The next morning we got up at 4:30 and hiked for about 3 hours ( incl. a great spot to see the sunrise). Thank you!

Wonderful company that offers unique trips oriented towards internationals living in Israel. The trips are especially appreciated during the corona times when it can be difficult to arrange such outings.

My most adventurous and joyful outings in Israel have certainly been with Finjan. During my three and a half years of stay in Israel (2016-2019), I enjoyed several amazing hikes with Finjan - all very well organized. Every time, I returned with a life time memory of beautiful landscapes, amazing pictures that still make my FB/Whatsapp profile pictures and not to mention several new friends who connected on hikes and are now friends for long time. Steve and Ariel were amazing all the times - friendly, helpful, cheerful, telling (hi)story and keeping the spirits high. I was surprised that Steve remembered every one's names even if you have interacted with him for a few seconds and then meet him again after six months. From my side Finjan gets 5/5.

I went on a day hike with them in the West Bank and can't wait to go on another trip with them, as soon as I can. Several friends had recommended Finjan to me when I said I liked hiking and wants to explore Israel on the weekends, and they were spot on. Great hiking trip in an interesting place I couldn't have gotten to on my own, even if I did have a car - basically an unmarked trail, not in a park, and they knew it super well. Pickup and drop-off was in Tel Aviv, and possibly other spots depending on location and demand, which they note on the website (for example, this trip also picked up in Rehovot and Jerusalem). As an all-day hike it was challenging, but the terrain itself was not too technical (I wore hiking boots, but others did it in normal athletic sneakers and were fine), and the pace was reasonable. Ariel also provided helpful and interesting geopolitical and cultural context on Israel and the West Bank, including the Bedouin community in the area where we were hiking. I had also signed up for a trip that was canceled due to the pandemic, and they sent us refunds promptly.
