Our family spent 12 days in Israel touring Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the Upper Galilee, the Lower Galilee and the Negev with Reuven. My husband had been to Israel in the past, yet this was my first trip and the first trip for our 16 and 10 year old sons. This was a memory-filled trip that each one of us will never forget. Our trip was priceless because of Reuven.
Reuven is an infinite source of knowledge. His love of history, geography, topography, religion, architecture and nature is palpable as he teaches you and lets you experience the sites and the beauty of Israel. An example of one personal touch is how he pointed out beautiful foliage and gorgeous plants and flowers at every stop. He explained politics of ancient and modern times. He discussed everything so that the adults and children could understand and grow from the information. He answered every question with insight and gave us more information to consider. His caring nature was indeed evident in the way he treated all of us, especially our sons. His stories and explanations were detailed, glowing and magical. He brought a warm and loving nature to everything we experienced and learned. His accommodating and flexible manner was a gift each day. He took us to wonderful restaurants, lovely shops (at our request) and recommended a multitude of enticing things as we toured the region. It was quite hard to leave our new friend. We missed him the minute we arrived home and still do. We cannot foresee a trip to Israel without touring with Reuven again. We cannot describe how wonderful and knowledgeable this gentle, kind man is. If you are going to Israel, you must experience a trip with Reuven.
Reuven provided a fantastic tailored tour for our family! He is extremely knowledgeable and provided plenty of flexibility for our areas of interest. We highly recommend Reuven and can't wait to come back and see more of Israel with him.
We could not have asked
We could not have asked for a better guide. Reuven gave us an in-depth walking tour of the Old City. Since my mother is in a wheelchair, this was quite a feat! His knowledge of wheelchair accessible routes allowed us to see all of the holy sites in the Old City. He also shared the history behind what we were seeing. The day we spent with him was definitely the highlight of our trip!
Thanks again for the informative and exciting few days guided by you. We all agreed that it was a huge success. We will be happy to add to your reviews.
