Our group of four travelers had a wonderful tour with Michel. He was knowledgeable and engaging keeping each of us interested. He navigated the sites efficiently and we were able to cover them well while allowing each of us time in those sites of our individual interest. Using Michel as our guide allowed us to learn and see much more of Jerusalem than we would have experiencing it on our own.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for you’re lovely feedback. I hope that you continued enjoying the holy land. And it will be a pleasure to see you again. Warm Shalom, Michel

Fantastic day with Michel in the most amazing city in the world. In a place with literally too many things to see, Michel made our day trip to Jerusalem extremely efficient and valuable. We saw more than I had imagined possible in one day; not rushed, not cursory, not simple. Thank you, Michel. I look forward to returning and exploring more of Israel with you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Thomas, Thank you so much for your wonderfull feedback. I enjoyed Guiding you it felt like taking around a couple of friends or family we even have the same vehicle:) Warm Regards, Michel

Michel led a fantastic tour around the Old City in Jerusalem. He was super knowledgable of all the historical sites and knew how to effectively navigate the expected crowds. We covered almost every inch of the city in our tour, and had a blast doing so. Michel will show you some of the best views (that are not overcrowded) and knows where to find a good bite to eat, all while making sure to keep his tours highly entertaining. Couldn't recommend this enough.

It was a very wonderful and pleasant experience touring Jerusalem with Michel. He was very accomodating at the same time very professional. Sensing that we had arrived late the night before, he suggested we start at 8:30, thus giving us ample time to prepare. Since we were touring with my 81 year old mother-in-law, we took his suggestion to take a taxi from the Western/Wailing Wall back to the other side of the Old City where his car was parked which is a long walk. Thank you, Michel! A+++

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Fe, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Would be more than happy to meet you again. Warm Shalom, Michel

This was by far the best tour we have had over many years of traveling the world. Michel is the best tour guide ever!!!!!! If you want a great tour of Israel you need to let Michel set up an itinerary for you. You definitely won't be disappointed. Michel had sent us a list of the places we should see over a 2 day tour. He put in 2 very long days and showed us the best of not only Jerusalem but Masada & the Dead Sea. i have absolutely no qualms about recommending Michel. Thanks for the best tour ever!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Waaaaw! Dear Cathy, I am so grateful for your amazing feedback. I enjoyed your company so much. Humble, caring, curious, flexible and funny. Those who found you and have you around must be lucky people! See you next year in Jerusalem! Warm Shalom and enjoy your cruise:)

Jerusalem is a whole different place under the night sky. We were keen to take this tour for a night view but also as a good orientation to this amazing but complex city. Michel was very informative and was so easy to converse with on a manner of subjects. Though many sites are closed at night, we found it so easy to re-visit the next morning and to apply the added information Michel had imparted. We covered so much ground, visited all the major sites and learned so much. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. It was a great pleasure touring with you. Warm Shalom, Michel

Our day along the Dead Sea began in Michel's comfortable, air conditioned, vehicle. We traveled first to Qumran touring the museum and ruins where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered. We next visited Masada and had the pleasure of a truly unique and insightful tour by a guide intimately familiar with historical events of millennia ago. We spent over 10 hours with Michel, learned much, visited once in a lifetime sites and never tired of his stories and humor.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sam and Cherry, thank you so much for your lovely feedback. It was more than a pleasure to guide you around. Your talented participation on Masada made from my small Herodus performance almost a Giga show. Sigmund freud's band, your songs and compositions made driving for many hours a musical experience.

Visiting the Old City of Jerusalem can be an exercise in navigating crowds, overly friendly vendors and important, historical sites both secular and religious to see and photograph at every turn. But our day in Jerusalem was perfect thanks to the knowledge, humor and creativity of our guide Michel. Michel guided us through the maze of the Old City all the while conveying the history of the city at each stop and along the way. We never felt rushed yet the time of our full day tour passed quickly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sam and Cherry, Since you're knowledge, questions and familiarization with every jewish joke are tremendous, touring with both of you is a challenge for every Jerusalem guide. Inviting me an Liran for dinner was an unforgettable gesture and memorable moment. I am already longing your company.

My wife and I spent four days with Michel. He was on time every morning, spent as much time at each location as we needed, never rushed us to get to another site. He was extremely knowledgeable about all of the locations we visited. I am something of a history buff and had many questions concerning the sites we visited and the many events that have occurred in Israel. He was always patient and answered all of the questions I asked. I would highly recommend Michel to anyone vising Israel.

His passion and love for Israel were evident in his sharing of the history and the present day life there.

Very personable, but poorly prepared. Despite repeated requests, the car he provided was too small for our needs. He hadn't made restaurant reservations in advance; and he didn't pay attention to the kinds of activities that we wanted to engage in.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Steve I’m sorry to hear about your unsatisfied experience. I aim to please my customers and even beyond that. Note that you didn't share with me you're walking limitations in order to adapt the tour for your comfort, then allowed you to join a couple at the same price, went to change the car early in the morning, changed itinerary and you got a partial refund. I am frustrated about the low rating but I am accepting my responsibility and we learn from our mistakes. Wish you health and Joy, Michel.

If you take this tour you will find Michel to be very knowledgeable about the historical, political and especially the spiritual sides of Jerusalem. At the same time he is really funny and entertaining. He is patient. We had a mixup over the starting time (totally my fault)and he waited an hour for us.

Michel is dynamic, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and even-handed in his approach. He never pushes a point and leaves it up to you to judge. It is impossible to even start to understand Jerusalem without at least an introduction by someone with a broader view, like Michel. And he adapts the tour to the narrative he develops with his clients. First rate.

My father and I spent a little over a week touring around Israel using mostly group day tours but decided on a private tour of Jerusalem with Michel. Out of all of our guides (and we had many) Michel was the best. He was the most knowledgeable, his english is excellent, great sense of humor, friendly and great company for the day! He took us into the little nooks and crannies of Jerusalem that you just don't know as a foreigner and can't go with a group. Highly recommended!
