We just returned from a two week trip in Israel, and I cannot say enough great things about our Guide Joe Nakkar. My husband and I were travelling together with our three teenage daughters, and we celebrated our youngest daughter's Bat Nitzvah while we were there. We wanted to experience as much of the country as possible. Joe functioned as both driver and guide throughout our trip, and we travelled from Tel Aviv, to the Dead sea, to Eilat, Jerusalem, and then to the north to the sea of Galilea, Golan Heights, and then back to Tel Aviv via the coast where we briefly saw Akko, and Haifa. Joe was amazing, full of knowledge about biblical history and archeology, and was able to give relevance to every place we went, from the perspective of all the major religions. He seemed to have boundless energy, always keen to introduce us to another cool, out of the way site, that isn't on the routine tours. He was also just a hell of a nice guy, and went above and beyond to insure our time in Israel was wonderful. He was very accommodating and helpful in arranging fun activities that appealed to the kids, and so we enjoyed a Jeep tour in the desert, rafting on the Snir river, and even a stint at a real firing range where we all learned to shoot. Whether it was showing us a great place to shop, or the best place for Falafel, or pointing out the incredible irrigation and farming techniques employed in Israeli agriculture, Joe provided a wealth of information that insured our trip was incredibly fun and meaningful. We will definitely hire Joe again the next time we visit Israel, which we will simply have to do as we fell in love with the place. We highly recommend him to anyone wanting an extraordinary experience in the promised land!
