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.

Simply the best tour operator and guides in Israel.
I think when traveling, we all look for the same things, is it well organized, is it safe, is it informative, and well put together. I can happily report with Finjan all of the above checks off with flying stripes. It’s simply an incredible experience, and I cannot recommend them enough. Steve and Ariel really put in the time beforehand, and during each trip.
I’ve been on both a solo and group trip and I just want to mention that on the group trip an amazing aspect was the community they had brought together. They have facilitated really wonderful people seem kind, welcoming and family. This is not something I always see with tour companies, so I think it’s worth reiterating in this review.
Bottom line, really can’t go wrong with them. They really stand apart and above as a company and as people.

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.

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.

Steve provided an exceptional experience with a great historical overview of the old city of Jerusalem. He is a wealth of knowledge and provided a great contrast of the religions, what is written in religious works compared to what is supported by archaeology and historical context for significant events. He even provided a follow up reading list. I look forward to our next tour.

We spent 6+ hours touring Jerusalem with Steve Rubin, and we had a great time. He's a bit pricy, but worth it. He's extremely knowledgeable about Israeli history and the bible, which was helpful in providing context for all of the religious sites. He also was terrific at listening to what we were interested in seeing and doing, and had patience with all of our shopping. He's really terrific - do not hesitate. A tour guide is the only way to truly get the real experience and understanding of the sites, and Steve is excellent.

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.

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!

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 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.
