Joe helped me make the very most of my time in Galilee and then down to Tel Aviv. Every place we visited (and he deviated from rigid routes to incorporate places he wanted me to visit and also ones I thought of) he was full of history information and always appropriate religious content. He included fun deviations to beaches and knew just where The Best of The Best was situated. I highly recommend Joe as a Holy Land guide,safe driver,historian and a great guy with a sense of humour. I left with a big grin

Joe has a superlative wealth of information about places visited and is colorful and enthusiastic in his descriptive discourses. I learned so much, gained insights through appropriate story telling and was always left with internal contemplations. Joe packed so much into the day without it being exhausting and I feel privileged to have experienced his tremendous guiding experience and knowledge. He is not afraid to go off the beaten track! It was a really joyous and memorable day.

Excellent guide - highly recommended! Joe was very flexible with arranging our private tour. Can't imagine there is a better guide for visiting the Golan Heights and Mt. Bental! His knowledge of other minor sites along our route was also good. We found a few nice stops that tour buses would never find.

Joe is a gem. We are seasoned travelers and have had many guides. We have never met a guide as knowledgeable of his subject matter as Joe. He has great energy is passionate and has a true love for his work and the state of Israel. His discussions and explanations were concise sprinkled with humor and numerous stories. We appreciated his concern for our well being and after two thrilling days consider Joe our friend. We were sorry having to leave his company. He is highly recommended. Phil Greene
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I also thank you all for the great 2 days. Your company and humor were just what I needed at the end of a long hot summer...... and, in reality. it's hard to get it wrong in such a fascinating and diverse part of the world. Hope to see you again sometime. Joe

Joe is friendly and knowledgeable so it was a pleasure for our family to spend the day with him. He took us to some very interesting places and was able to pitch the tour at the right level for the whole family. Even as the kids were tiring, he encouraged us to see one or two more things when he could have taken the gap and got home early. We had a great day in the North, thanks Joe!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dean, It was fun touring with you all around the Galilee. Come for longer next time - there is so much more to see. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Israel also. Best wishes Joe

Rarely do you find a guide who has lived the life that you are interested in hearing about and learning about. Joe is such a guide. He takes you to the UNESCO sites and personal and quaint little places where you can learn tremendous amounts about the culture and lives of everyday people. It was a spectacular two days with Joe. He created a need to come back for more. Do not miss out on a most unforgettable experience.

We hit the jackpot by hiring Joe for our Galilee touring days. He is highly knowledgeable; a great communicator; highly considerate and responsible; and -- not to sound too spoiled but let's be honest, this matters -- he has an exceptionally comfortable vehicle. He also has a deep love of Israel, which is something you can't take for granted, and which matters so much in guiding. I would hire him again in a heartbeat and will be recommending him to my friends.
