I invite you to be my guest and join me on an adventure in my beautiful country.
I am a happy, flamboyant and entertaining person with a love for all kinds of people and experiences. I have a degree in Politics and Philosophy, a Tour Guiding License and I am an experienced Tour Educator specializing in Jewish Heritage tours. I live in Jerusalem with my wife and two sons.
You could join me for a walk down the idyllic lanes of the Old City of Jerusalem, climb over its walls and crawl through its tunnels. I can take you to all of the holy sites and help you find that spiritual experience that you will never forget.
Perhaps you have been to Israel before and you are looking for something new ? Maybe you've never seen the Bahai Gardens or eaten Shakshuka in the old market in Jaffa or seen the Great Migration of the birds of 3 continents. You could climb Masada with me and watch the sun rise or go for a float on the Dead Sea. Well I can show you all that and more.
Not only am I a specialist on all facets of Jerusalem, but I am also an amateur Ornithologist, a bird specialist, and enthusiast in the fauna of the Holy land. Follow me on a nature hike in the Judean desert or a water hike in the rolling hills of Galilee. I believe that travelling is not just about seeing many old buildings and ancient ruins but forming a connection with new people, new animals and new experiences.
I enjoy meeting all kinds of people, I can work with children of all ages (from 0 - 120 years!) and when I'm not guiding I work as an educator. I am looking forward to be seeing all of you in Jerusalem this year!
A Recent Review of this guide
Wonderful day with Yossi! He was very professional and courteous when he arrived at our hotel to pick us up and continued to be so throughout the day. Yossi helped us understand the cultural dynamics within the city while also tasting splendid foods that we otherwise would never have found simply by exploring on our own! The covered market is an absolute treasure but would be impossible to navigate without a knowledgeable and friendly local like Yossi! Would highly recommend him and his tour!
