We feel so lucky to have had Itay as our guide for the day in Jerusalem. He suggested starting early and offered great advice on how to get to the Jaffa Gate from Tel Aviv. We saw all the highlights and he was so spot on about starting early, I felt like we were way ahead of all the crowds!

Our favorite spots included a panoramic view over the City, getting up to the Temple Mount, and experiencing the Western Wall. We also enjoyed all the small touches Itay brought to the day that really showed what a great guide he was. He brought paper and pens with him so we could write our notes for the Western Wall, he took us to his favorite vendors in the market and made sure to give us a great history lesson mixed with a lot of fun antidotes. We had a great conversation all day! The lunch we had in the market was one of the best meals we have ever had and we are still dreaming of the rice and hummus.

Do yourself a favor and spend the day with Itay in Jerusalem, it was definitely the highlight of our trip!

Itay gives a great tour! We did a full day tour of the Old City and it was comprehensive, entertaining and enlightening. He also knows where to get the best falafel, spices etc. He's got a great sense of humor, but is respectful of all traditions represented in the city. You can't go wrong with this guy!

Itay took our family (2 adults and 3 children - ages 5, 11, and 13) to Masada, En Gedi, and the Dead Sea. It was WONDERFUL. Itay is a fantastic tour guide and was a great person to have leading our three children. He is very knowledgeable about the area and I would highly recommend going with Itay!

In case it hasn't been written enough times, Itay is a remarkable tour guide. Born and bred in Jerusalem, Itay knows each nook of the city and its rich history, and speaks freely about its multi-cultural significance, traditional and modern. Yet what truly distinguishes him from other guides is his light-hearted, warm and welcoming demeanor. My friend (in Israel for the first time) and I spent the day with Itay in the Old City and left feeling like the ancient kings that once ruled it. Highly, highly recommend to tour with Itay :)

In Dec 2017 my husband and I did a full day tour of the Mount of Olives and the old city with Itay. We had a great experience and would recommend him to anyone. He has a great sense of humor and is very knowledgeable. We were lucky to have had him as a guide.
