My husband, nine year old daughter and I have just returned from another fabulous journey to Israel, with Shmuel and Aviva, for the second year in a row, as our tour guide and travel planner! This .We had a perfectly planned itinerary, well suited to the needs and interests of the three of us. Traveling around Israel with Shmuel as our guide is really the ideal way to tour. He is energetic, enthusiastic and he knows every inch of the country and therefore navigates the country with complete ease. He is extremely knowledgeable about all the sites, the history, the geography, the culture, etc. Shmuel has become a part of our family! We can’t wait to see you again!
