Shai is a fantastic tour guide. He's incredibly knowledgeable and charismatic, and he provides a balanced, objective description of Israel's history, culture and politics that brings many perspectives to bear. I appreciated his insights on an extremely complex situation, and I strongly recommend Shai to anyone seeking a tour of Israel.

This was a spectacular and unique tour thanks in large part to Shai Goren's guidance and leadership. I would highly recommend him for any Israel program. He was knowledgeable, fun, friendly, accessible, accommodating and flexible. Thank you, Shai, for an incredible experience!

This was my second visit to Israel and it was one of the more meaningful experiences in my life and Shai is one of the main reasons why. Shai was able to give us an honest and balanced view of what is happening in the region from the history, to what is happening today with the government and elections, peace process, the different demographics, and how the map of Israel works. He also gave us incredible recommendations for restaurants and places of interest. I was able to eat some of the best food in the region and find some exclusive local made clothing for my wife and I. Shai has a passion for what he does and being on a tour with him is educational, meaningful, and a lot of fun. I would highly recommend anyone to tour Israel with Shai!

This was the most informative tour I have ever been on! Shai’s knowledge and insights of the region were unsurpassed. He provided context to the history helping understand the cultural and political current affairs. He provided a level headed approach to a very complex and emotional situation. I greatly appreciated his insights on extremely complex issues. In addition, he was funny and kind making the trip even more fun!

Incredibly knowledgeable of history and culture
Nov 2019
I was a bit apprehensive traveling to the region due to notices from the US State Department of unrest. Having not traveled to the Middle East before, Shai's knowledge about the region, the history of conflict and theological explanations of various religions, not only put me at ease, but helped me enjoy our tour. I felt we received a top notch tour that included not only "what" happened, but the "why." I toured with a group of clergy (both Christian and Jewish) and we felt Shai's care for facts and details helped us grasp the richness of the culture and the complexity of current political conflicts. I am HIGHLY recommending Shai to anyone wanting to have a thorough tour of the region.

Shai is the best guide I've ever had on an organized trip
Nov 2019
Shai was our guide for a week, we visited Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and the Galilee. It was a fun and meaningful trip for us! Even though some of us have been on tours like these in the past - this time was the most special one for all of us as Shai tried to always give us different points of view. He is so knowledgable. He was always relevant, interesting, sensitive to the group's needs and most importantly - nice and genuine! I would definitely recommend him as a guide to anyone I know!

!Marvelous tour of Jerusalem and equally marvelous tour guide
Jul 2019 • Friends
I am so happy to share this review because, while I do not write many reviews, I am absolutely glowing about the fantastic job that Shai does as a tour guide. Shai brought Jerusalem alive for our whole group. It would have been a different place without him. My friends hailed from Israel (thank you Eyal!), Italy and the U.S. and Shai masterfully shared an experience that resonated with each of us.

My life will be changed forever not only because of the beautiful city, but because of the
.beautiful way Shae connected us to the rich and complex history that is Jerusalem

It is safe to say that this trip will ruminate in my thoughts for the rest of my life. Shai was worth every dollar, shekel, and euro paid, and then some. I don't generally do the guided walking tours, but I am so glad we did.
(apologies for typos in my English to Hebrew back to English translation!) .

PS Ask Shae about his singing voice, it is great!
