I traveled with my 20 and 22 year old children for four days in Israel - Yuval could not have been more accommodating he was able to take are pre planned itinerary to another level with his knowledge about history, religion, politics, culture, food and wine - most importantly he was able to taylor our short time together to make sure we were exposed to sights and experiences that met our needs and kept us interested - We wish we had more time to absorb all the information Yuval has and hope to come back to pick up where we left off - We highly recommend Yuval !

There aren’t enough wonderful adjectives to describe Yuval as a guide. The depth of Yuval’s knowledge on Israeli history was on a higher level of detail than we could ever imagined. Our extensive 10 day tour allowed Yuval to show us amazing sights and sounds, tastes and cultures all over Israel. There was no topic that this amazing man was not deeply familiar with including archeology, geology, geography, anthropology. As a bonus, Yuval loves to read and as he gave us an extensive history of so many sights, he also told us which books were relevant to that area, siting many, many books throughout the tour. Besides his love of his country, it was obvious that Yuval shares a love of humanity....soldiers or shopkeepers were fair game for conversations with Yuval when explaining the philosophy of different regions. He submersed us in the flavor of so many different sections of the country from the Golan Heights to Kibbutz life to driving to a post to talk to soldiers serving with the UNDOF. Our comfort and well being was also right in the forefront of Yuval’s tour. He was always concerned how we were doing physically, and made sure his luxurious Mercedes Van was fully stocked at all times with cooled water bottles. Yuval’s enthusiasm for showing us “just one more special sight” was famous....and we would eagerly look forward to his hidden gem finds each day, in addition to his extensive and ambitious itinerary. Yuval was so approachable that we found our group of two couples asking so many questions each and every day, wanting to learn as much about the culture at each site we visited. By the end of our tour we were already planning our return and asking Yuval to plan out what new sights we could see! This enthusiastic, intelligent, funny man is a 1 in a million! From short tours to long tours....you can’t do better with anyone else to guide you. Juval is the BEST! We thank you for making our tour of Israel such a memorable event. Barbara ( your persnickety friend), Mark, Ellen and Steve Long Island, NY November, 2019

After fourteen days of touring with Yuval we have seen much of the best Israel has to offer. Our tour was full of spontaneous stops at uncrowded local attractions, as well as the iconic. From the start Yuval’s responsiveness, flexibility, and professionalism was unparalleled. These qualities were apparent throughout the tour as Yuval consistently accommodated our particular requests without hesitation or resistance. Beyond the fact that Yuval’s tour was impeccably RELIABLE—always prompt & patient if we ran late—COMFORTABLE—touring in a brand new Mercedes touring van, stocked with cold water, phone charges, adjustable climate controls, etc.—and DIVERSIFIED—Yuval made sure we interacted with the locals to provide a more personal experience with the country—beyond these conveniences, was the tremendous depth & breadth of his knowledge and experience with the land. From history of the formation of the state of Israel to its anthropology, geology, geography, and archeology, Yuval contributed layer upon layer of understanding of the sights. Also, we found Yuval’s energy & enthusiasm unstoppable. His knowledge, love of the country, and desire to share it with his clients was infectious. He definitely motivated us to step up the pace of our tour. Our expectation of a guide was merely to save us time and aggravation while getting from place to place. Our experience was so much more!

Yuval is the best guide there is! We (my father and I; I am 18) went all over Israel--from Tel Aviv to the Sea of Galilee, the Golan Heights, the Negev Desert, the Dead Sea, and many other places. He has so much knowledge of every subject matter, whether theology, geopolitics, or everyday life. He is an incredibly friendly guy who was so fun to hang out with! He was very flexible with our schedule, shifting plans to do whatever we wanted during the day. His car is also air-conditioned, so we never suffered the heat (even during the summer time). Yuval is also very funny and had us cracking up throughout the whole trip. We could not have asked for anyone better; we asked him all sorts of questions, and he always had an answer. A truly amazing guy, as all the reviews before me, can attest to. He made the trip to Israel so insightful and fun! Best trip ever!

We just visited Israel and had the privilege of touring with Yuval. He was just perfect for what we needed. His knowledge of the Holy Land is unparalleled. He knew exactly what we wanted to see and patiently planned how the tours were to be done. He took us to all the sights we wanted to see and knows the bible which was an added bonus. He engaged our children who are 18, 20 and 25. Yuval went beyond his duty as a tour guide and took us shopping and was so flexible we were blown away by his kindness. This was my second visit to Israel and I realised I did not see anything though I went on tours in the first trip until we had Yuval. We are going back next year and definitely using him again. There are many tour guides but Yuval is the best both in knowledge and approach. We had cold drinks as he had a fridge filled with water. His car is so comfortable and six of travelled in comfort. Thank you Yuval for making our Holy Land experience perfect.
