Extremely friendly and experienced guide. Passionate, detailed in his explanations and available to address any request or curiosity. Highly recommended to everybody.
Meir was the perfect guide and made our visit so much more than expected. He showed us behind the scenes and took us also off the beaten track e.g. in the synagogue. He knows everyone and everything there and is obviously well liked. As he customized the 5 hour tour a bit around our interests we had a entertaining lesson and discussion on history, religion, philosophy and life in general. As Jerusalem came to life we like to think we also made a friend there. We highly recommend Meir as a guide.
Thanks to Meir, we had a very informative tour of the old city of Jerusalem.

If you seek a fun informative tour with a most knowledgeable and entertaining guide, then ask for Meir! We enjoyed his sense of humor, his engaging manor and connections with those in the old City. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. He made it a very special day and we've even followed his guidance on Netflix recommendations. Highly recommend and had we'd stayed longer would have specifically booked other tours with him. All the best Meir!

Met Meir at tha Jaffa Gate having had various exchanges by email with him. On arrival he made every allowance for my difficulties. At every stop a chair was ready and waiting. At one point I needed to stop and he went into a local store and borrowed a chair . His local knowledge was superb with detailed but easy explanations which were appreciated. Meir enjoys his job and made our tour exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble and we highly recommend Meir to anyone visiting this wonderful City.thank you M

Meir is a great guide, and a wonderful man. He is very knowledgeable, always entertaining and interesting. We miss him already.

Meir was wonderful! Highly recommend him! He was so knowledgeable about not only the architecture, but also the entire history of the city from ancient times to modern times. We would not have had the experience we had going it alone. He took us places we would not have been and pointed out so many interesting features. Thank you Meir for making our first trip to Jerusalem memorable!
We had a great private tour with Meir. He was very knowledgeable and great at adjusting the tour according to our needs and interests. Meir is also very friendly and has a great sense of humor, which adds to the overall experience. Highly recommended!
Excellent and insightful tour provided by Meir. I visited Jerusalem many times, but this time I've learned many new things that gave me a new perspective on this beautiful city. Strongly recommended.
Jessica OppetitUnited Kingdom
We couldn't have asked for a better or more comprehensive tour of Jerusalem. In a group of six we had three Nationalities, 2 pregnant women, multiple religions and both newcomers and old timers to Jerusalem. Meir took this all in his stride and offered an interactive and informative tour that catered to everyone. We absolutely loved it and couldn't recommend the tour more!
Jonathan MauserUnited States
We enjoyed a wonderful morning touring Jerusalem with Meir. He suggested meeting my family at our hotel and began sharing his extensive knowledge and insight enroute to the old city. He is a very personable and engaging gentleman. I had visited Jerusalem twice previously but saw new sights and learned new details with Meir. He clearly knows the city and loves his country enabling him to lead a delightful tour. He removed time constraints and focued on our needs. I highly recommend Meir
Meir was a fantastic guide and he gave us a wonderful experience of the Old City of Jerusalem, a city which is his home and which he obviously loves. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the region, from all viewpoints and also shared his knowledge of modern Israel also. This was our 1st day in the country and he answered many other questions about other things that we planned to do. We learnt such a lot, had a great time and we would certainly recommend him to everyone.
Barbara SilvermanUnited Kingdom
Meir is an excellent guide. He gave us a fascinating tour of the Old City, with information about the history, religion and politics. In addition we had very interesting discussions where he was able to share with us the "insider's view". This was so very much more worthwhile than a self-guided tour. Thank you, Meir.
Elizabeth StadtlanderUnited States
There are no words to express how passionate, learned and absolutely delightful it is to experience a tour with Meir. His charm and sincereity will make your time with him a once in a lifetime journey through Jerusalem. We highly recommend him.
Fantastic Jerusalem experience with Meir! We engaged him for a 4 hour tour, ended up spending 5 and a half hours together, and left wanting for more! We had an insider experience of all the major sites, and more. Meir had a deep knowledge of Judaisim, Christianity, Israel, Jewish customs and traditions and more. We had thought provoking discussions on many topics, and this tour was one of the best travel experiences in a long time. We now have a friend for life. Thank you Meir. Very easy to work with.
Todd ReimcheUnited States
Meir met us on time at our apartment. He was friendly and very knowledgeable and gave a thorough tour of the Old City - wonderful. He helped us with recommendations on visiting areas outside of the Old City. He made us feel at home in Jerusalem. Meir is a person I would like to have been able to spend more time with just hearing more history and stories of the Old City, Holy Land and more.
Megan LoCasaleUnited States
Meir was a fantastic guide. He took the time to get to know who we were, our familiarity with history and religion, and what we were interested in, and then guided us on a wonderful tour. He is personable, caring, knowledgable, intelligent, and funny! We enjoyed our time with him immensely and will be recommending him to any friends we have traveling to Israel.
Brittni McCorquodaleUnited States
If you visit Jerusalem, you need to meet Meir. Our day in the Old City with Meir was the highlight of our time in Jerusalem. His knowledge, perspective and enthusiasm for the city and culture is contagious. He is genuinely interested in the things he talks about, and in the people around him. There is no way we would have been able to get the breadth and depth of information on our own, or with a group tour. And, we left the day with great recommendations for the rest of our time in Israel. Thanks, Meir!
Very knowledgeable and patient with all of our questions! Great tour guide, helped provide great recommendations for the rest of our stay!
We (2 adults and 2 teens) had a great 4-hour tour with Meir. It was very interesting and we got to see a lot. Meir is a very pleasant person who taught us a lot and even manage to keep our teens attention. We had a few laughs together and the 4 hours just flew away. We can very much recommend Meir T as a tour guide.
Meir was the perfect guide for us and he made the trip as perfect experience. In general, a private guide is the bestsellers one could do and especially with him. Many background information and not only the sightseeing attractions but also all around it and it ended with a second booking for a da trip with him. We won a friend there.
Meir had not an easy job; how to intrest kids and parents and explain the complexity of Jerusalem in only 4 hours. He did it great! He wasn't afreight to give personal comments and interpretations on how jews, christians and moslims could (and should) be able to live together. A warm person with a vast background. Not just 'the highlists of Jerusalem' but more the important stepstones for each religion and thus an explination on the consequences. From 2000BC untill know. Thanks!

Meir gave an excellent tour and was very flexible around our schedule and needs. He loves his country and that really shows in his discussion of history and culture of his country. I hope to use him again when we return for another visit.
Javier HernandezUnited States
We had a fantastic day with Meir - what a nice guy. He provided a great overview of the Old City, with thoughtful commentary on the places of interest. He skillfully blended the old and the new and made the day so enjoyable. I would definitely use Meir again.
Jenny BrownUnited States
We had a wonderful morning with Meir leading us (a group of 4 adults and 4 kids) around the Old City. We were a mix--some of us had been to Jerusalem many times, a couple were there for the first time--and Meir did a great job keeping us all engaged and seeing new things. He was terrific with the kids, and I left with a greater understanding of Jerusalem than when I started. I would absolutely book him again to see more of the city.
We booked Meir last minute he was very helpful and accomodating from the start. Meir was an excellent tour guide very informative, relaxed and catered to what we wanted....not too much information overload! We would highly recommend Meir, we loved the tour and would do it again.
Meir is a first class guide who tailored the tour for me & my six year old boy. He tries to deliver value for the very substantial amount of money ToursByLocals charged, and he certainly gave us a day in the city we will never forget. I felt we were going places I couldn't have found easily on my own and I appreciated his way of relating to my young child. Hence my boy walked 5 hrs with him! I would STRONGLY recommend you book Meir, both for his knowledge and sense of humanity in a very-divided country.
