I am excited to reveal the lands' treasures together.
My name is Etai. I was born in Jerusalem, and love welcoming people to this wonderful city.
Every tour is a personal one. You get to see the country with a local and get a point of view from someone that grew up here. I am proud to speak an ancient language that was reborn in modern times, the Hebrew language, and can share the knowledge of the language, culture, religions and customs that tell the story of this land (I grew up in an observant jewish home). I speak English fluently, and lived in the United States for 5 years.
Every rock here has a story to tell, and I will try to bring the ancient stones back to life by telling the legendary stories of the holy land. It's much more than a job for me, it's a passion. I'd like to share that passion with you.
Make sure to check out the tours I offer, but keep in mind that I am flexible and offer tours that are tailor made to your request such as combining different tours together. You can choose a walking tour or be picked up by me at your hotel or cruise ship. I will pick you up in a clean, comfortable, air conditioned vehicle and we will head out to a new destination of your choice.
Before you choose your tour, I'd like to offer you something extra. A post tour service. For three days after the tour you can use my services as a local, to consult, ask for advice, recommendations, or opinion on local restaurants and places to eat, doctors, changing currency, or what to do on your own in the area. It can be very useful to have a local at your service!
A Recent Review of this guide
I highly recommend Etai due to his knowledge, interesting way of giving the information and flexibility to adapt to his listeners! We had a very good time with Etai today during the walking tour of Jerusalem and we are still impressed how much interesting information we received without being overburdened. His international experience in combination with his personal background added an interesting aspect. Thank you for you friendly nature and making the time in the cold definitely worth it!
