Explore this unique, graceful land of striking beauty and rich tangible history. Witness the triumphant power of the human spirit in a land restored to and revitalized by its people out of a state of desolation and ruin. Its once barren soil has been tilled and sown; its deserts made to bloom. The tour will take you past evergreen forests, vineyards and orchards; past ancient ruins and cities rebuilt; a land inhabited by a people rich in culture and learning; a population young, vibrant and growing; rich in diversity and drawn from different ethnic communities from all over the world.

I was born and raised in South Africa, with English and Afrikaans being my mother tongues. I completed my schooling at Carmel Jewish Day School, Pretoria. I then went on to qualify with National Diploma in Nature Conservation and worked as a Game Ranger and Environmental Educator in the Kruger National Park as well as in Gamla Nature Reserve in Israel’s Golan Heights. Thereafter I trained as a Licensed National Tourist Guide in South Africa and built my own travel company specializing in Eco-tourism Safaris, Cultural and Heritage Tours. Having being raised in a family with a deep desire to eventually settle in Israel my ‘Aliyah' (emigration) to Israel became a reality in 2005. I spent my first years learning at a Yeshiva (Jewish Learning Center) and extensively traversed the land on a two year National Tour Guide course qualifying me as an Israeli Licensed Ministry of Tourism Tour Guide. My wife Orya, children Naama, Matan, Livya and Kaya and both our sets of parents who later followed on Aliyah have all settled in Modiin – one of Israel’s fastest growing cities, built surrounding the Maccabees ancient city’s ruins.
I strive to make your visit an enjoyable, unforgettable and meaningful life’s experience.
