Helen C.

Jerusalem, Israel

I have lived, laughed, loved and lamented in Jerusalem for over 20 years.

I feel at home in her alleyways and markets and I know all of her stories and most of her secrets.
Originally from sunny London, England, I came to Israel after graduation, in order to follow my childhood sweetheart. I can find my way around the country using the bible or a map. I can show you the castles of knights and the palaces of kings, the battle grounds of yesterday's wars and the context of today's debates. I can tell you how a man votes (or in some cases doesn't), by looking at the hat he wears (or in some cases doesn't).
I have brought up my own children to know and love Israel and enjoy taking other children on the same journey of enrichment and discovery… and sometimes just plain fun.
I am also one of only a small group of tour guides to receive accreditation from the Ministry of Tourism as a specialist in wine tours around the country. So if you are interested in learning some more about this subject and visiting some of the vineyards and wineries, do let me know.

A Recent Review of this guide

This was truly a wonderful experience and tour - Helen was a fantastic tour guide, very warm and friendly- she knew a lot about the area and the wineries and microbreweries we visited. This was a special experience for us - we enjoyed the wines but really enjoyed meeting the brewers and winemakers as well as their staff and family. I would highly recommend this tour!
