About Us

Israel Travels is the handiwork of two people: Author and travel writer Aviva Bar-Am – and tour guide/photographer Shmuel (Shmulik) Bar-Am.


Shmulik was born in Tel Aviv, and served in the Israeli army as a paratrooper.

After receiving a diploma in Israel’s foremost school of cinematography, photography and visual arts, he began working as a cameraman in Israel’s first television station (Channel One). But every spare moment was spent exploring the country from one end to the other. Thus when he left the television and received his license as a tour guide, his beloved hobby became a thoroughly satisfying day job!

Soon after marrying Shmulik, and under his passionate tutelage, American-born
Aviva began a never-ending love affair with Israel’s unique landscapes. In 1990 she
began writing weekly travel columns for the Jerusalem Post and
continues as the paper’s regular Israel travel correspondent. She has also published
seven highly successful guidebooks on Israel and lately has been contributing travel articles to the Times of Israel (http://www.timesofisrael.com)

All of Aviva’s articles and books are illustrated with Shmuel’s stunning color photographs.

Testimonials
Dear Aviva and Shmuel , Just a note to thank you for all of your help on our trip to Israel. Aviva .. your great ideas for the day we were on our own plus your help in booking everything was really helpful and made our first night and day very exciting .Shmuel ..apart from the fact that the kids thought you may actually be one of Supermans cousins .. we really had a fantastic trip. What you managed to show us in Jerusalem considering William is only 8 was amazing. Both the kids loved the water tunnel ( even after a small initial scare !). The day doing Masada ,En Gedi and the Dead Sea was really the most exciting day for us all . Our Israeli friends who came over to join us from Tel Aviv said there was no way they would have been able to fit in so much. Everyone loved it !
Regards, David Glazer .. (and Joel and William)
