I just finished a great tour with Danny. He is very knowledgeable and coherent about archaeology, religion and politics in the Israeli context and that’s a lot! He didn’t just take us to sites, he also explained how what we were seeing at one site related to things we saw at other locations. He is enthusiastic about his work and his subject and communicates that as well. He made it a trip worth taking.

We used Danny the Digger for a very informative and enjoyable tour of Ceasaria and Herodian. Danny is an archeologist and Bible scholar and really knows his stuff. I cannot recommend him highly enough. At Ceasaria we walked from the massive aqueduct to the site of Ceasar's port and hippodrome along the beach on a most beautiful winter day, at Herodian he showed us the site of where King Herod was buried, on the side of the hill, it was an amazing find!! As I said, highly recommended tour guide with perfect English.

We had the privilege of touring with Danny to the the Dead Sea, Masada and Ein Gedi. While I have visited these sites many times before, his erudite descriptions and deep knowledge added new depth and insight into these wonderful places. My children , young adults, who do not always share my love of history, said he was the best guide we had had and found his commentary fascinating. The ride was comfortable, air conditioned and plenty of space for 5 adults. We give him our highest recommendation and look forward to travelling with him again on our nest trip

Through fortune we were connected with Danny Herman also known as "Danny the Digger" who gave us great insides to Jerusalem the holy city for the three major Abrahamic religions—Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Following the convenient pick up at our hotel, Danny, a studied archeologist already and also a teacher in tour guide courses brought us great insides in a very understandable language and fashion in when mounting towards Jerusalem.

Danny was very professional, knowledgeable, efficient and personable as we would have known him for years. With his experience he guided us in a manner making sure we avoid the big tourists group in order to minimise unnecessary waiting times.

We enjoyed our trip and Danny was a large part of it. Danny also spontaneously arranged us a trip to Bethlehem where we had to swap the guide. His choice on the other guide was excellent which rounded up our overall experience of the holy place.

Our day with Danny was a wonderful and educational and superseded our expectations. We almost forgot that we were on a business trip. I can truly recommend him making your trip to the holy city an unforgettable experience.

Danny is an amazing tour guide with an incredible grasp and knowledge of Biblical history. He took us to unbelievable archaeological sites and tied everything together with his narrative. Simply the best guide and a great person.
