We traveled for 10 days as a family of 6 spanning 3 generations ranging in age from 85 to 16. That in itself can be a challenge, but we had an exceptional experience with tour guide Yuval De-Joannes who worked through rent-a- guide. Yuval's expertise, in- depth knowledge, warmth, and flexibility helped us enjoy the trip of a lifetime. Our itinerary was extremely well planned- everything was well organized and well timed. Yuval was able to cater to the needs of my 85 and 82 yr old parents while keeping two teenagers engaged in all that we saw. We also enjoyed the luxury of a large comfortable, fully air conditioned van driven by our guide with a microphone in the vehicle which made seeing Israel from top to bottom a breeze! The mic in the van was critical as my parents have hearing issues and they did not miss a word. I highly recommend rent - a -guide and Yuval De- Joannes as a guide. This group knows what they are doing. Our trip was fun, informative, stress -free, meaningful and comprehensive in getting to see all that we requested plus more. A very reliable and professional group!!

We recently booked a Jewish Heritage tour through Shalom Tours. They hired Meni Tzubarik (sp??) as our guide through Rent a Guide. He was so wonderful, he 'made' our tour! I did not know what to expect.... a large bus, 50 tourists,??? But we were thrilled to find out that our tour had 8 people (10 for the first few days) on a very comfortable mini bus.
Meni is a true professional. He is so knowledgeable and passionate about his country, and shared it all with us! He was funny, hard working, and enthusiastic! We were truly fortunate to experience such a wonderful tour, with such great people, and a top notch tour guide.
Meni helped us create memories we will never forget!!

Totally enjoyed our tour of Israel! For six days, Hilik Silfin, patiently shared his knowledge of history with a group of twelve, who have met for the first time. He immediately set the tone of the trip with his humor and enthusiasm. The 6-day trip took us from Tel Aviv to Haifa, the Golan Heights, Sea of Galilee, Nazareth, Tiberia, Capernaum, Jerusalem, Masada, Dead Sea and many more to mention. He faithfully kept to the itinerary (and more) and genuinely cared that each one enjoyed and appreciated the historic significance of each site. He was our Moses (his middle name is Moshe), who led us through this trip with much energy and patience. His no nonsense but kind demeanor is what made the group have a such a fun and easy-going time with him and with each other. The tour of Israel was the most enjoyable and memorable of the 3-1/2 weeks, my husband and I had in the Mediterranean and the Balkans.

My husband and I had an extraordinary time in Israel! We will always remember this special time, for we chose this location for our honeymoon. It was special, it was unforgettable!
We had two guides during our 10 days tour: Nedal and Meni. We really appreciated them both!
Nedal is a very pleasant person: knowledgeable, intelligent, very sensitive and friendly. We enjoyed every bit in his company! We will not forget his "andiamo!" every morning when we were late, nor our beautiful discussions. Precious times!
Meni is a volcano! We enjoyed his company only for a few days at the end of our tour, but we have him impressed in our hearts and minds. Extremely intelligent, we loved his passion for Israel! Always keen on explaining things, always exciting, never boring, we were impressed by his wide knowledge and friendly manners.
Both Nedal and Meni contributed to make our time in Israel absolutely unforgettable! Thanks you guys!

Vincenzo & Manuela

PS: We'd like to be able to stay in touch directly with these guides, if possible.
