My Dad and I did a full week with Gill. He is the best. Very knowledgeable, fun to be around and very welcoming. Gill’s knowledge of Israel ranges across history, religion, politics, geography, architecture, food and culture. He made our trip seamless and memorable.

I have been to Israel approximate 15 times and have had tour guides each time. Gil was definitely one of the best guides we have had. He is extremely knowledgeable, warm, with a great sense of humor. I would unhesitatingly recommend him.

I've trekked twice with Gill. He's a great guide and a great guy. He's good company, friendly and approachable. He has terrific detailed knowledge of the area, including flora fauna and geology, and you are safe with him even in difficult terrain. Warmly recommended.
