Yonit S.

Jerusalem, Israel

Shalom! I am thrilled that you've made the decision to come visit the best place in the entire world.

My name is Yonit and I've been living the dream, working as a licensed guide in Israel for 6 years. I consider it a privilege to be able to explore the vast beauty of the land of Israel while educating tourists about this country's deep historical roots, geopolitical complexities as well as religious and cultural ties. It's no secret that I'm especially passionate about Jerusalem, and and I've been told that my energy is infectious (consider yourselves warned). :)

Although I live and guide primarily in Jerusalem, I also offer private tours of the Judean Desert, Galilee, Coastal Plain and the Golan Heights. Please feel free to be in touch for a customized tour to suit your travel needs and curiosities!

A Recent Review of this guide

Yonit was a perfect guide for my 10 year old daughter — funny and energetic, with a brilliant sense of what made sense. Thank you!
