Ari made our trip to Israel such a great experience! He is full of knowledge and shares a great personality that makes each stop very enjoyable. We were so sad to leave, but happy to have had Ari help us create new memories!

Ari Melnik is the BEST tour guide. I can’t even begin to describe. He’s so comprehensive, flexible, young, funny, and knowledgeable! I’m so sad we had to be done! You’d be crazy not to have him as your tour guide.

If you want to "check the box", then this is not for you. If you want to go deep and get a real perspective, then Yuval is the guide you want. For example, my family (myself, spouse and boys, 16 and 13) wanted to learn...More

If I could give our guide Yuval 10 stars I would as 5 doesn’t seem to do justice! We returned home from a whirlwind tour of Israel. A trip of a lifetime that would not have been the same without Yuval. He was punctual, patient,...More

It's the recommended way to travel in Israel. Costs vary and depend on itinerary. If sleeping away from Tel Aviv there is a charge for hotel room+ $750 per day.
