    What an amazing and unique tour at (underneath) the Western Wall in Jerusalem. The tour was extremely informative and our guide was top notch. Don't miss the Western Wall Tunnels Tour when you are in JLM.

    Excellent experience to walk thru tunnel. We had bright headlamps which helped greatly. We took our time and had a good size group. No rush. Just enjoy the sights.

    Great experience. Wonderful presentation. Highly recommended.
    How Israel from its founding fathers, until today including the hard en dark ages.
    Surprised how Christians in the last century have treated the Jews and how they have empowered the rise of the nation in contradiction to the Middle Ages.

    Went there during an exhinition for 100 years of Jerusalem Armenian ceramics.
    Highly recommended.
    It was free of charge on a Saturday morning with rather only few visitors.

    An extraordinary countryside experience sandwiched between busy main roads. A piece of wild land has been carved out, partly for gazelles and partly for people. Once you are in the valley it is hard to believe that you are surrounded by the city. If you want to see gazelles go early in the morning or in the evening. The gazelle section is separated from the people section. The Visitors Centre is staffed and helpful, with maps in Hebrew English and other languages. One warning: the path marked on the map as a cycle path only exists in part, and even that part is not for the fainthearted, either in terms of the surface or the slope!
    I only discovered this park about two months ago, and have been at least six times since: it is only a 10 minute trip along cycle paths from my home in central Jerusalem. Apart from the gazelles there are other forms of wildlife, many different species of birds, plants… And yesterday I nearly cycled over a baby tortoise or possibly a turtle.

    We came by car and managed the long, narrow, winding road to reach our destination. It was well worth it, as this is a very special and meaningful memorial in a most scenic and beautiful setting. There is also a lovely picnic area right nearby, with plenty of parking.

    David organized for me a full day to discover Jerusalem and Bethlehem towards the end of a business trip in Israel. I could not have dreamed of a better journey. Mikael took me for a wonderful walk all around the old city of Jerusalem, filled with stories and his love for the place and his country. Never a dull moment, i left Jerusalem wanting to hear and discover mire. Iyad then drove me around Bethlehem, explaining me what life on the other side of the wall meant and showing me this incredible town and the countryside around, attentive to my questions and eager to bring me into his culture. Again, filled with stories and personal details, I was sad to leave Iyad yearning to learn more. Thank you for a fabulous introduction to Jerusalem and its surroundings, I will definitely be back for another tour with David’s company.

    There is a reason why Jeremy Collins is the number 1 tour guide for Jerusalem. He is OUTSTANDING in every department. He is articulate, funny, incredibly knowledgeable, and one of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. He loves Israel and he loves sharing her beauty and secrets.

    Some tour guides give you facts about the places you are seeing. Jeremy tells you STORIES, and imbues them with such passion and nuance that really brings these places to life. For instance, when we were atop Masada, Jeremy didn't just tell us facts about the Roman conquest of the rebels-- he read to us the dramatic and impassioned speech of the leader of the Sicarri rebels-- a speech so moving and convincing that it persuaded the entire community to commit suicide rather than fall captive to the invading Romans. Jeremy then followed up by showing us the archeological artifacts found at Masada that corroborated the accounts of the siege. Jeremy's presentation was moving, and gave us a real sense of the panic-- and courage displayed by those ancient rebels.

    Jeremy took us to some fascinating off the beaten path places, such as a community of ultra-orthodox Jews, and to a food tour of the famous Machane Yehuda Market, where we had lunch, visited a fresh juice shop and and sampled some of the most delicious, straight-out-of-the-oven chocolate ruggalah.

    I am not easily impressed, but Jeremy exceeded my wildest expectations.

    If you are lucky enough to meet Jeremy, please ask him the following question:

    "Who is Accrington Stanley?"

    Our May 2022 tour with Aviv Herzlich of Aviv Tours actually started in September 2021 when we interviewed several tour guides for our upcoming trip. We found Aviv to be interested in what we wanted to do in Israel (rather than telling us what we should do), flexible concerning the itinerary, and full of practical advice. Aviv was also patient with our many questions before and after we selected him to be our guide, and he was available for advice and assistance while we were in Israel during times when he was not actively guiding us. In addition, Aviv enlisted the assistance of his friends and colleagues to guide us through their areas of expertise. We found Aviv’s colleagues to be as knowledgeable and personable as Aviv and they contributed positively to the overall experience.

    Most importantly, Aviv handled his own trip logistics (rather than outsourcing to a 3rd party firm) and he used his relationships to schedule specific activities within the itinerary (e.g., Druze and Bedouin hospitality events, jeep tours in the Golan Heights and in Makhtesh Ramon, and wine tasting).

    We toured through Israel’s northern coastal area, the Galilee, Golan Heights, Jerusalem, the Dead Sea, Makhtesh Ramon and Sde Boker, Shefla, Sderot and Tel Aviv with Aviv Tours. All along the way, Aviv provided hotel and dinner restaurant suggestions and reviews, and he made reservations for us when a phone call was required because there were no online options. For lunch each day, Aviv took us to “locals places” that we probably would not have found by ourselves.

    Aviv took what we expected to be a great visit to Israel and transformed our journey into something that was so fabulous that we have yet to find words that adequately describe our sentiments and appreciation for his knowledge and efforts. Aviv’s combination of knowledge gained from his life experience as a native Israeli, his university education, his talent as an educator, his friendly personality and his years of guiding recreational, religious, corporate and other tours resulted a tour that was filled with historical and cultural information, rich descriptions of past and current events and a beautiful mosaic of how historical events that have occurred over 2,000+ years transformed into Israel and the Middle East as we know them today.

    If you're planning to hire a tour guide in Israel, contact Aviv early in your planning stages and hope that he's not booked for your dates. This was among the best tours we have experienced anywhere. It’s hard to believe you'll find a better guide in Israel than Aviv Herzlich and Aviv Tours.

    The tour guide (Mier) was very professional, knowledgeable and patient with the group (27 adult in total). He went out of his way to please the group. We are all pleased with the excellent service he rendered. Will definitely recommend him and his company.

    My wife and I are Christians from Texas and had been planning to spend Easter in Jerusalem for 3 years. We stayed in the old city so we could “walk where Jesus walked” 2000 years ago. It was an awesome experience, and touring with Dvir in the old city of Jerusalem made it even more special! We walked to all the holy sites and felt very safe all along the way. He seems to know everyone, both Jewish and Arab people we passed - and they obviously knew him - adding to our feeling of safety. Shop keepers even gave gifts to us when they saw we were with Dvir (when have you ever had that experience when touring abroad?) We left Jerusalem spirituality blessed and with a good friendship. We have learned that the expense of a good tour guide is a must if you want to really experience a foreign environment. And you won’t go wrong with Dvir Hollander!!!!
