About
Hi I’m Joel, a licensed tour guide specializing in private tailor-made tours across Israel. Israel is an incredible country; complex and inspirational – getting to grips, not only with its rich history & culture, but also the narratives, dilemmas and questions that surround them, is key to understanding it. Whether you are looking for a day tour exploring and discovering the secrets of Jerusalem’s Old City, an off-the-beaten-track tour of Tel Aviv-Jaffa, or the perfect made-to-measure itinerary for multi-day trips across the country; I am here to help and create for you an unforgettable experience. A licensed guide for a decade – as well as a former Cultural Attaché for Israel; I am expert in creating high-level programs exploring Israeli society, regional-politics and comparative religion. I am, however, equally at home creating fun, dynamic and creative tours for families, young and old! If you are looking for something special that really stands out – then please be in touch!
Jerusalem, Israel

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Joel was an amazing guide.
We were on a 7-day trip with Joel and we learned so much about Israel and its culture thanks to him.
You can notice that he put a lot of energy and passion into his job and that makes you want to listen to him all the time, ask him questions and learn more and more.
I definitely recommend Joel as a guide if you are going to Israel.

He has been by far one of the best tour guides I’ve ever had. The level of knowledge, the dynamic when explaining and the passion he had to guide are aspects to highlight. With out a doubt, my experience in Israel has been truly enriching thanks to him.

Joel is very knowledgeable and transmits complex information in an easy and friendly way. Is very objective and makes sure to cover the whole picture of a situation. He is also very professional and passionate about his job, and his storytelling made everyone engage in the subjects.

He joined us for a whole week in Jerusalem, the Dead Sea, Sea of Galilee and Capernaum, Golean Heights and Tel Aviv.

JUST AMAZING!!! I’ve never met a guide so knowledgeable, with so much reflections and sympathies for the countries s/he guides. And I honestly doubt there can be any guide who can peel off Israel and Palestine as well, informing, passionate, empathetic, as Joel does. This region’s history emotions and geopolitics go beyond complexity, but if you go with Joel—he will curate a journey for you to go deeper and deeper—just when you think you start to understand he adds a new layer. It’s like going through a defective story with him. You will be challenged, entertained, and informed. And at the end of it feeling elevated and more confused… in a good way. I highly encourage you giving it a try and get a flavor of this amazing exploration journey. (Only if you’re genuinely open minded and curious)

Joel has been the most incredible guide. Our trip to Israel would not have been as rich, fun, interesting or fulfilling without him. He is not only a guide, but an amazing human with endless knowledge and passion for this region.

Thank you Joel for taking us all on a true learning journey, which has left us all changed and eager to return!

Joel is by far the most charismatic, passionate, and professional guide I've ever seen. He joined us for a full week all over Israel, including TLV, Jerusalem, Golan Heights, Negev, and Masada. Not only did he share with us fascinating information, also he did it in a super interesting way through his incredible storytelling talent.
THANK YOU, JOEL, FOR MAKING THIS VISIT SO UNFORGETTABLE! <3<3<3
