Meir is a SUPERB guide! He is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the Old City. He gave us experiences and insights we could never have found by ourselves, taking us to special places and unique corners of the city. He is especially knowledgeable about the three faiths and greatly enriched our appreciation of the city's spiritual significance. As important as his broad knowledge is his generous and friendly manner. I simply cannot imagine a finer introduction to the Old City tour.

My husband, adult sons, and I recently took a tour of the Old City with Meir and he was wonderful. He was extremely knowledgeable on both history and religious beliefs, balancing the two beautifully. We really enjoyed out time with Meir......it was one of the highlights of our trip to Israel.

Our day with Meir was nothing short of wonderful. Not only was he incredibly knowledgeable, but he provided a lot of insider information that only a local would know AND we really liked spending time with him! Even our often "bored" kids enjoyed the tour and still talk about Meir. Highly recommend and THANK YOU, Meir!

This was the best and most moving tour we have ever been on. We are a family of 5 and we are avid travelers. We like to take private tours to learn and interact regarding the history and culture of an area. Meir did a great job explaining the history and providing a framework to view current events through. Meir was very knowledgeable and passionate about Jerusalem and his tour was a day we will remember forever.

Meir was a superb guide for our family with 3 smal kids. He has a vast knowledge of history, knows Jerusalem inside out, feels deeply and passionately for the place, and tells a very enlightening story. Meir adapts to his audience - on top of his narrative for the adults, our kids got some tasks to perform, got their names spelled in Hebrew on little pieces of parchment, and there was a "quiz" in the end for them, in a very well-natured way, so everyone was very happy. I cannot think of a better guide.

Thank you for the perfect day, Meir! We had an absolutely great time and learned so much about the history of Jerusalem, the three monolistic world religions and how they are connected. Your knowledge is totally impressive. We highly recommend Meir!!!

We can not speak more highly of Meir. We have been fortunate to travel extensively and have had many guides over the years in different places and Meir is one of the very best we have experienced. He is thoughtful, caring, knowledgable and accomodating. We have two young children (aged 10 and 6) who were with us on this walk and they got as much out of the day as we did. Wonderful man - who helped bring perspective to this extraordinary place and made thousands of years of history accessible to all of us.

Meir is a gentleman and a scholar. Our tour of Jerusalem's old city would not have been nearly as meaningful without him. If you want to understand both the religious significance and the factual archeological history of this great city, Meir is your guide. I was impressed with the years he devoted to becoming a certified guide and the relationships he has built with many of the locals. We are so glad we chose Meir instead of a less personal large group tour. This tour far exceeded our expectations.

If i could give Meir more than 5 stars I would. Meir is hands down the best tour guide I have had. He is extremely knowledgeable and you can tell he really knows his way around Jerusalem. He also interacts with many of the locals, which gave my family and I a greater perspective of the city. He really enjoys talking about Jerusalem's long history and that definitely helps you engage in learning about the city. Overall, Meir is the tour guide you need to have for a great experience in Jerusalem.

Meir had superior knowledge of the history of the city, each of the three religions, and every historical site visited. He provides objective factual account of each of the sites visited, describing very clearly what religious authorities say compared to the archeological and historical evidence, as well as how the history of three religions intertwine. He stayed with us well beyond our allotted hours. He is respectful, patient, puts the visitors interest first, and he is a pleasure to spend a day with.

Amazing tour! Meir is extremely knowledgeable, was very flexible with the time and location of the tour, and able to adapt on the fly when my wife expressed an interest on something that we were not going to cover. He went above and beyond the call of duty, I highly recommend this tour, and if I ever have the opportunity to return to Jerusalem, I will make sure I book with him again. Thank you Meir! PS. Meir has an impeccable sense of style;-)

Vielen Dank an Meir für diese ausgezeichnete private Tour. Die private Tour kann ich jedem empfehlen, der sich für Kultur und geschichte interessiert und "einfach mehr mitnehmen" möchte. Ausgezeichnet. Meir ist ein sehr angenehmer Mensch, ohne "religiöse" Ambitionen... Fakten und Anekdoten, fein erzählt!

Meir is a kind man with a deep knowledge of the Old City. I appreciated his sensitivity to my narrative as a Palestinian Christian in Jerusalem. We visited Jewish sections of the city that I had never been to as a child visiting my cousins and aunties in 70s Jerusalem. It was a bittersweet experience for me to see how the city has changed, and a sense of sadness and loss, but it was also very special to share it with my mother and 3 boys. We all learned something and I would highly recommend Meir.

We just come back from the tour and we want to say a big thank you for your time, your open explanations and your kindness. We have learned in 5/6 hours a lot more than what we would have been able to learn for days by ourselves. We give without hesitation a 5/5! Again thank you and kind regards. Anne and Maurice

Meir was an outstanding tour guide! He is very knowledgeable and objective. His personality makes the tour very enjoyable. He was accommodating to the fact that we had a toddler which required some adjustments on the tour plan. We would definitely highly recommend him.

Our walking tour of the Old City with Meir was truly wonderful! His knowledge of Israeli and Biblical history is tremendous, thereby providing us with an incredible background for all of the sites that we visited. As a resident of Jerusalem he was also able to provide us with the Israeli perspective on the city as he discussed the creation of the state, the wars following and the ongoing conflict. Meir was truly engaged with us and patient addressing all of our questions. I highly recommend this tour!

We could not have been more satisfied with this incredibly thorough tour. Meir was knowledgable, friendly and interesting. He helped us with suggestions for the rest of our trip, and is clearly respected in the trade of guiding because more than one other guide came over to say hello and compliment him. We saw sights we wanted and areas we didn't expect as well, a perfect day.

Meir guided us through the essential parts of the old city taking our needs into consideration and answered all our questions in the best way possible. He was very helpful and even provided us with a scarf that we got to keep and came to great use on our Jordan trip��. We were very pleased with everything.

Our family traveled to Israel with Jerusalem as our first stop recently. Meir was our tour guide the first full day we were in Jerusalem. First and foremost, he was knowledgeable with a passion for telling the story of Jerusalem and giving our family a personal experience. We covered the entire city on one day and every minute was filled with information, but most importantly, experiences where our family gained a love of Jerusalem at every corner. We would suggest Meir as a guide to everyone.

Meir was a great guide and a genuinely good person to spend a day exploring the old city of Jerusalem with. His knowledge and willingness to engage in both historical and current discussions made the time fly by and helped us better understand our surroundings. He went out of his way to accommodate us at our level and we never felt rushed. Would highly recommend.
