The amazing Rona planned and guided us for a day trip in Jerusalem. We are a family of two parents and three children in a wide age range, and Rona managed to interest and captivate us all, with explanations, knowledge, stories, jokes and has made this day much more than just a trip. highly recommend.

Rona's creative, fascinating tour of Masada and The Dead Sea was crafted specifically for the group of us traveling with her from California. She was able to pivot quickly when she sensed that there would be one section of Masada that we would enjoy more than another, she was funny and fun (let's not forget the stop to ride camels and take pics) and took her time to get to know us, and our interests. Her knowledge of Israeli History and Archeology was a huge bonus, and she crafted her talk to both the Jewish and Christian members of the group, so we all felt like we had a complete experience with her. We loved her so much, we asked her to give us another tour, and gave her very loose parameters (we wanted to go to Beit Guvrin and see the caves). She came up with a wonderful tour of the caves, a hike in the hills overlooking the Valley made famous by the David and Goliath story, and a delightful stop at a winery, ending at the Mount of Olives at Sunset over the Old City of Jerusalem. She's fabulous. We were all adults, but she's taught high school and has two kids of her own, she clearly would be excellent with whole families. I would only use Rona as a guide the next time I return to Israel.

Rona took a group of four of us (all American work colleagues) to Masada and the Dead Sea two weeks ago. Rona was an amazing tour guide! Funny, insightful, delightful. We all had different interests and knowledge bases and Rona spoke to all of us, answering our multiple questions and providing insight about the history of the country, as well as Masada specifically. We had a camel ride, a great tour, lunch and a swim in the Dead Sea. She had endless energy and patience, and by the end of the day, we felt we'd made a friend for life!

My family (4 adults) traveled to Israel together over the holidays. This was the first time for all of us. Yuval worked with us to design the perfect, customized itinerary filled with just the right balance of history, culture, and gastronomy! Our tour guide (Idan) became like a member of the family. For 10 days we traveled around the country together tasting incredible Israeli food, sipping Israeli wines, and soaking in 5000 years of history. We will never forget our memories of the views from the top of Masada, swimming in the Dead Sea, walking in the market of the old city in Jerusalem, sipping a Turkish coffee with the breeze blowing off the Mediterranean in Tel Aviv, or the powerful impact of all the historical and religious sites we visited. I am so thankful that we found Yuval and Guide4Israel. Having a deeply knowledgable and enthusiastic guide take through every site helped us truly appreciate what we were seeing, and we got the benefit of all the insider tricks (like tour guide parking and knowing which lines to skip to get the best experience!) I can't wait to come back, and I will recommend Yuval to all my friends and family who plan to travel to Israel!

Yuval brought Israel to life for our family. We were traveling with 3 sons 22, 20 and 16. Their attention spans can be short. It was their and my wife’s first visit to Israel. Yuval was our first guide. We spent 2 days with him and he brought wisdom and passion TO EVERYTHING we saw. From a historical, political, religious, and geographical perspective his knowledge is deep and insightful. He knows how to read his audience and seemed to tailor the highlights and must-sees of each site to what we wanted and needed to know. I’ve never seen my boys so curious and engaged. He left us throughly satisfied with each day but curious to learn and read more to deepen our own knowledge. He is also remarkably candid. He told us straight up what was possible, probably and provable. Yuval made our trip. I recommend him with all the enthusiasm possible. We WILL BE BACK and will insist on Yuval and coordinate our dates so we can learn and enjoy him again. Doug D.
