Yana is a very knowledgeable guide - full of energy and fantastic little stories. We (a family of four) really enjoyed the tour and learnt a lot about Jerusalem and Israel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Dominic. It is a big commitment for me, to know you and your family enjoyed the tour. I am a big patriot of my city Jerusalem (which I feel is often misunderstood) I am happy i could pass you my knowledge about this beautiful and crazy place . All the very best to you all, Yana:)

Yana was a delight. Informative, amusing, interesting. She guided our party of four through the warren of streets and even up on roofs to give us a most interesting tour. Perfect English and spoken so that we could always hear her. I would highly recommend Yana.

Yana is enthusiastic, informed, and engaging. She planned and customized on the fly. Our full-day tour covered both new and old Jerusalem. Bring food. We are heathen cosmopolitan sceptics, so evangelist-filled Jerusalem is an easy place for us to dislike. Yana did a great job of detailing the history, rival beliefs and claims of competing tribes. Sometimes too detailed. Toursbylocals adds very little value and limits review length.

Very entertaining and informative and learned a lot. Will recommend highly for future travelers.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much! I enjoyed your company))) Informing people is something I do for work but also for pleasure:) All the very best to you, Yana
Dear Yana, Once again, thank you for this very instructive old city tour. We all learned a lot from you. You were able to introduce us not only to Jerusalem. At the same time you taught us many interesting facts of the three big religions which have wonderful holy sites in this marvelous city.

Yana is a very good guide. The tour was interesting and i would recommand her !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Steve!!! It was my pleasure Meeting you and your beautiful family)))
I needed a guide to take my teenage son around Jerusalem while I was working. Another guide didn't think a teen would be interested and engaged, but Yana was enthusiastic. She did an amazing job. My son is a history buff and was really impressed by her detailed knowledge. She actually extended the tour a bit to answer all of his questions! I was very happy with her kindness and communication. My son said it was the best tour he has done in 3 months of traveling. I highly recommend her.

What a great and unique experience! Yana sure knows her way around Jerusalem--both old city and new--and will take you places off the normal list of things to see and do--opening your eyes to many unseen parts of the city. Highly recommended for more adventurous types.

Yana is an incredibly patient and knowledgeable guide, you will not be disappointed. In a span of a week I made the arrangement with her for the Jerusalem tour and then changed it twice. Once to expand from 4 to 6 hours and the other to go from 4 people to 10. That is 10 adult men which was like "herding cats". She did it with tremendous grace and did a fantastic job. Thank You Yana!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Chris, I am so glad you had a positive experience- mission accomplished! ☺ You guys were interesting and fun (as well as ADD/ADHD)) Thank you for talking the time to write the feedback))) All the very best, Yana ��

Yana was an excellent guide to this fascinating and complex city. We were introduced to all four quarters of the ancient walled town, including excellent places to clearly view important sites both within and beyond walls. Yana's deep knowledge, sense of humor and cultural/political insights were much appreciated.
Debra BolocofskyUnited States
Yana was the best tour guide we have ever had. She knew her history, biblical information, and was an amazing fountain of knowledge about the old City of Jerusalem. She knew both the old testament and new testament. We happened to be there when the Church of Saint James in the Armenian Quarter had just finished services so we got to go inside and it is beautiful. We saw everything we wanted to see and then some. I would recommend her for any type of tour that she does. She is an excellent tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow Debi, I was moved by your kind words))) It was worth waiting:) I spent such q nice time with you and I'm hoping to meet you again some day. All the very best to you both Senciearly, Yana

We had an excellent tour by Yana of the four quarters of the Old City. Extremely interesting, informative and well tailored to us. She answered all our questions and really bought the Old City to life. Would definitely recommend her tour!
