We thought we knew Jerusalem. That was until we did a walking tour with Erez of Milestone Tours, From 10 00 until after 16 00 he guided into places in and around the old city and showed us places and perspectives and people that we have missed previously, despite having visited Jerusalem repeatedly over the past 30 years.
He did so with a relaxed and entertaining style which leaves you refreshed, amused and at times amazed by this great and unique place. Definitely worth the tour.

Erez guided my family of 24 people, ages ranging from 4yrs old-76 yrs old! We were touring for my son’s Bar Mitzvah for 7 days all through the country. To start, the expansive difference in ages that we needed to please could have been a challenge, plus the range in personalities!

Erez was phenomenal! He is a wealth of knowledge and knew exactly how to engage the little ones in a playful way that helped them to learn through play. For the older crowd, he was able to answer every single question that was thrown his way and always had a story to share on the bus about where we were going, getting everyone excited for the next stop. Erez has friends all over the country whom he has a history with which makes every experience feel truly authentic, whether it was stopping at a special shop in Safed, to visit a shop owner whom he had a very enlightening experience with when his mother was sick, or for camel photo ops with a family he has known for more than a decade. Being able to support families that he knows and has worked with for such a long time made us feel connected to them and even happier to support them.

I could not say enough good about Erez and my entire family of 24 agrees that he was absolutely a perfect match for us. We HIGHLY recommend him and feel confident he could connect with any group size, age range for any reason for traveling Israel!!!

Visiting Israel has been at the top of our travel list for my wife and I. We wanted to experience the country's rich history, natural beauty and of course its incredible food. As Christians, we were excited to experience the important Biblical sites found in Israel as well. However, we had a hard time being able to plan what to see in the shortest amount of time.

That’s how we found Milestones Israel. We wanted to tour with an experienced, local expert to see as much of the historical and Biblical sites of Israel as we could in the short time we were here. Milestones Israel was an incredible way to experience this beautiful country. In just 2 days with Erez, we were able to explore all the way from the Sea of Galilee to Jerusalem. Our favorite thing about Milestones Israel is their ability to customize the tour to your interest and plans. We told Erez what our interests were and he customized everything for us. No matter your nationality or religious background, Milestones Israel is able to create the perfect custom tour to meet your interests.

It was amazing getting to see 4000+ year old history come to life as we toured Israel. One of our favorite highlights was getting to explore the area around the Sea of Galilee. The area was beautiful and Erez did an amazing job painting a picture of the Biblical history that happened in that area. In just 2 days with Erez, we felt like we had made a lifelong friend. We learned so much about the country’s history and culture. We are so thankful that we booked with Milestones Israel and loved our stay in Israel.

Erez is a wonderful guide. He took me and my two colleagues from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and back for one day. He didn't stop talking for a minute - all interesting details connected together in a mosaic which will be stuck in my head forever. Erez asked each of us to tell him our life story, so that he could tailor his story telling to our life experience. That's a very smart way how to keep audience engaged. The whole day was packed and we didn't have a feeling for a second that we are not getting great value for our money. I highly recommend Erez. You can't get a better guide for Jerusalem.

Five plus stars for the very special time we spent in Israel with Erez! He is a super passionate guide who loves touring this amazing place and he catered the tour to all of our interests by meeting with us on zoom beforehand to figure out what we were looking for in a trip like this. Right from the first moment we met, it was so comfortable to talk with him, it felt like we knew him for a long time and that he was a good friend. Add all of this to his deep knowledge of ancient history and Israel. We were in for a treat, everywhere we went he had a story, he listened and responded to our many questions and he made us stay curious and think critically about historical accounts. He was also super flexible and continued to cater the tour to our evolving requests and interests on a daily basis.
What an amazing experience he created for my family! Wishing you a great future trip with this fantastic, charismatic guide!

It’s hard to single out a favorite, as every single day with with Erez was exciting, meaningful and full of interesting content. If I had to pick it would be the two days we spent walking in the old city of Jerusalem, discovering thousands of years of history and seeing how people live, celebrate and worship there today.

Just came home from out 2nd trip with Erez of Milestones Israel. This was also the eigth time in Israel for my wife, and I. This amazing man made this our best trip. We were 9 people including our kids, and grandkids (who were celebrating Bnai Mitzvahs this year). Our only time when we could all get together is during the summer, and Erez helped us plan an itinerary that kept us mostly in the center, and north of the country, as it was quite warm there. He also suggested that we use an Israeli travel agent. In my 35 years of international travel, we have always used American travel agents. We were a little worried about it, but we did use, with Erez's help, a local Israeli company, and it turned out to be the best thing we could do. Accommodations, and execution was flawless. If something, during the trip, was not perfect, a quick text to the company, and the problem was fixed to our liking, in a short period of time.
We did many diverse activities so everyone would be happy. Best of them was the chance to get wet, in waterfalls, rafting the Jordan, floating in the dead sea, and swimming in the Mediterranean in Tel Aviv
But the best part of this trip was Erez. He understood the bonding experience that our 3 generations wanted to have, and how important it was to tie this to our Jewish Heritage. Success, Success.. He also understood the importance of the foods of Israel, for us (we are in the food business). He took us to the most amazing food markets, vineyards, chocolate manufacturer, and restaurants during out trip. The foods of Israel are outstanding.

This amazing man, who is also a fabulous storyteller and historian, has the ability to quickly get to know people, and see their needs.

Thank you, my friend Erez, and hope to see you real soon for another amazing trip.

Erez came highly recommended and he did not disappoint. He took us on a walking tour of Jerusalem (old city, the Kotel and the tunnels) and a driving tour to Masada and the Dead Sea. He also helped arrange some other tours for us with colleagues in the north and south. Erez is incredibly knowledgeable and has a great passion for what he does. He was very attentive to our family's individual personalities and took special care to tailor the tours to our unique interests. He has an amazing way of brining the history to life. He doesn't just tell you the facts but creates a story and puts you in the middle of it.

Erez went above and beyond as well with helping us book hotels and giving us useful advice along the way. Even on days that we were not touring with him he was more than happy to help me out with a question via WhatsApp, for example, if I had a question about a particular neighbourhood or a good place to eat. He even helped us plan our itinerary!

Bottom line: I highly recommend Erez's services. You will love him.

Erez is a gifted guide. He brought the history and modern day story of Jerusalem and all of Israel to life with incredible details and facts. We had two day trips with him and it was a wonderful combination of fun, excitement, education and wonder. His excitement is infectious, and we not only had a great experience but feel we have gained a friend for life. We cannot recommend him enough!!

My family of 4, 2 adults in our 50s & our 2 daughters in their 20s, travelled with Erez/Milestone Tours throughout Israel. We first stayed in Jerusalem for few nights & from there we did a day trip with Erez to masada & the dead sea, & the next day Erez toured us through the old city. Both days were so interesting & amazing. Next, we travelled with Erez up north for 3 nights, where we all stayed in a Kibbutz in the Golan Heights. From there we travelled for 3 full days & must have seen 20 different sites, towns & villages, which I’m sure we would not have gotten to see without Erez. Erez knew the ins & outs of every area. It’s hard to please everyone in the family at all times, but he really managed to do that. Erez went above and beyond to make this trip of a lifetime amazing for our family. Until next time Erez!

Milestones Israel led by Erez Strausberg is phenomenal. My family toured Cesarea, Ako, Haifa and Jerusalem with them 5 yrs ago and in June of 2022 we returned as a family and toured Tzfat. Erez is a very kind and personable guide and beyond that he tailors the tours to make sure that everyone’s needs and interests are satisfied. His tours are both hugely educational and fun. He also does a great job with pacing and coordinating a wide variety of activities as well as food breaks into the day tours. He came recommended to me by a dear friend and I have since recommended him to another friend who also had a wonderful experience.
