My husband and I called Meir on short notice and asked for a half day tour of archaeological sites associated with the First and Second Temple period in Jerusalem. My husband is an avid reader of archeology journals on Israel and has taken part in a dig at Beitsaida so I was concerned that the tour might be too "introductory" for him. I need not have worried--Meir has done his homework on the latest discoveries by archaeologists, including Israeli archaeologist Eilat Mazar, and was more than able to answer my husband's questions. But even better--Meir was able to take us to sites we had never seen before (Rachel's Tomb for one, which is probably more interesting for the high-walled channel cut through Palestinian-held territory than the Tomb itself!). We have been to Israel many times and taken many tours but this was by far the most interesting and enjoyable. We highly recommend Meir.

Giving a tour is almost like being on stage, and there is always a sense of "what if"... Every tourist is different, and every tour is unique. I always feel a little nervous before guiding an archaeologist, a priest or a rabbi, a Middle East studies professor etc. At the end of the day, it actually enhances the tour, and I always manage to learn something new. Thank you for your review, Meir

Meir is one of the best tour guides I've ever had and I'm a very demanding customer with high standards. Don't let the number of reviews fool you. Meir has been doing this for many, many years with numerous satisfied customers. His reviews were inexplicably deleted which is why his tripadvisor page is new and he has to start his reviews from scratch again. Meir is a true delight to be around. He is extremely knowledgable and a great storyteller. He is very flexible and knows the area so well that after one conversation with you he can create the absolute perfect itinerary. My friend and I were unique and challenging customers but he worked with us and gave us the time of our lives. He can give the basic tour but can also put a really unique one of a kind experience together for you. Meir is amazing. You cannot go wrong. And his prices are very reasonable. He's just a good guy that loves to share the city and area with guests. HIRE HIM!!!!!

My husband and I have visited Israel many times but never with a guide in Jerusalem. On her nascent trip to Eretz Israel, our travel mate and friend found Meir online to guide us through the ancient city. Needless to say, we were immediately impressed and enamored with how brilliant, knowledgeable and personable he was upon our first meeting. Meir continued to enlighten us all and show us areas of the city we had never seen. As a guide and mensch, we applaud him for enriching our experience in Israel beyond expectations. Meir comes with our highest recommendation for a truly unique and real experience of this incredible land, people and miracle that is Israel.

Thank you for your nice recommendation. Whenever I guide someone who has visited Israel many times, I ask myself: How can I make this visit special again? Only after meeting with you, asking a few questions and learning about you more, I customize the tour to give you that special visit in spectacular Israel. Thanks, and please visit again! Meir More
