Overview

I specialize in buiding customized private tours of Israel and operating them through and through. I pride myself on being able to build exactly the right tour for you and make sure your experience is nothing short of perfect. My greatest passion is religion and so I've specialized in Judaism, Christianity & Islam and truly enjoy guiding with this focus. In addition, I am highly interested in Archeology, History, Culture, Geo-Politics and a variety of additional subjects. Waiting to hear from you ;)

There is a reason Shai is number one in his field. He has truly mastered the history of this portion of the Middle East. Shai combines that with an equally deep understanding of the diverse ecology and the multiple cultures that make up Israel. He...More
