“One of the best private tour guides I have had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

Danny was simply one of the best for a multitude of reasons. He was direct and efficient - keeping a pace that allowed us to see what we wanted with the amount of free time that we dictated. We toured Jerusalem with him and his knowledge was indispensable. He gave us interesting facts and kept his personal religious views to himself which I think is great for groups. He made shopping and lunch recommendations and even made us dinner reservations that evening. Very friendly with a great sense of humor and an obvious intellect which is respected. The only suggestion I would make to him is to send a thank you email to his clients afterwards - was surprised by this but not a big deal. In setting up the appointments, he was very quick and direct and easy to work with. And his prices seemed quite fair in comparison to research.

“Excellent Tour experience in Jerusalem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Danny is an extremely qualified and competent tour guide. Just point a hill, a church, a mosque, a tree or even a stone in Jerusalem and he’ll explain to you every secret, every truth (and also every legend or plain lie) about them. My wife and I had a great and interesting time with him during our one-day visit to the old city and surrounding area. Don’t ask why, maybe we were just fascinated by this talented guy, that we asked him, an archeologist, to take us also to the Holocaust Memorial, the Jad Vashem. We were not wrong. Thank you very much, Danny. Carlo and Luisa.

“Archaeology gallore!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

Danny was an awesome guide for our journey to the northern part of Israel. He knows the history, the geology, and the geography of the land. In addition his passion for archaeology really suited our curiosity. My #1 compliment was that he was able to mold and even alter our schedule to suit our family's needs and interests - we were never bored and never over-booked. He managed our trip very well.

We were thrilled to share our week with him (and the cats that follow him everywhere!)

“Awesome wealth of knowledge.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

Danny knows Israel and its history like the back of his hand! He knows the inside and out and all the best places and routes. He is one of the most articulate of all the influences in Israel.

“A PERFECT POINT OF VIEW”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

My wife and I spent the entire day today touring Jerusalem with Danny and we had one of the most educational, enlightening experiences of our lives. Danny simply could not have been move informative, giving the empirical history as well as the "tradition" of locations holy to Christians, Jews and Muslims. He knew every back street, back alley, secret stairwell and best way to experience exactly what was important to us. It also seemed like he knows all of the people important to know in the Old City. Officials and vendors alike know Danny and treat him with a great deal of respect. You will not find a better tour guide for your trip to Jerusalem.
