“Look no further: Mimi is Israel! The best of the best!!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

This was our 2nd private guided tour with Mimi. She is absolutely amazing! Her knowledge of Israel's history, the Bible, geography, archaeological sites, and where to find absolutely anything and everything is topnotch, and superior to any other private tour guide Israel has to offer. Our family had the vacation of a lifetime. Mimi selected activities to suit us all, we were a large multi-generational family, kids (medium sized)-parents-grandparents, and she found activities for us all to enjoy. She has seems to have an infinite number of resources to use to guarantee a flawless tour, from the actual tours (museums, site tours), to activities (hiking, Ranger riding, Jordan river rafting) to where to stay (we stayed in various hotels, all based on her recommendations), and where to eat, where to stop for photos, swimming, etc.... We went all over Israel Israel in a mini-van and we all had experiences to last a lifetime! Mimi took care of every single reservation for our various expeditions and tours ensuring a worry-free holiday. Mimi was also excellent with the kids -- they loved her! She's also extremely flexible. We were able to make some 'bonus' stops on the tour that were thoroughly enjoyed. She really was truly able to find something for everyone! Mimi is Israel! We could hardly imagine another Israeli holiday without her.

“Mimi is an outstanding guide, knowledgeable, engaging and fun!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

We have been to Israel many times and one of the highlights is always the tours we take with our favourite guide Mimi.
Mimi knows Israel inside and out, her knowledge of the land, it's culture, history and geology is awesome.
She is able to make her tours interesting for travellers young and old, those who have never been to Israel and those who have been many times.

“Mimi The Marvellous!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

We did a week's private tour of Israel with Mimi and we had a fabulous time. We'd discussed our preferences with Mimi by email before we arrived and she quickly put together an itinerary that suited us. But the best thing about the tour was Mimi herself. She's got an encyclopaedic knowledge about everything you want to know about; and she tells the histories of the people and places in a fascinating way. She knows the shortcuts to most places and also how to avoid the worst of the crowds. Lastly, she's got a great sense of humour and we quickly felt like we were travelling with a friend and not just a guide. We agree with the other reviewers, who have covered all the points we wanted to make, that Mimi is THE BEST. That's why we've called her Mimi The Marvellous and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her. She's just great! Thanks, Mimi for a wonderful time and we hope to see you again before too long.

“Amazing Tour Guide!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

This tour guide is just amazing, she is very smart with alot of knowledge and stil make the trips alot of fun and not boring like other guides that I met in the past.
She knows many more about the history of Israel, believe me the stuff I have learned from her is so interesting and also helped me to score very high in history class.
So if you want to see Israel, learn about it and have fun while doing so, go to this tour guide, I had a blast on my trips thanks to her, and I know I will go with her to many more trips.
