Sam guided our graduate student group for two days throughout Jerusalem. He was very well prepared and made accommodations on the fly based on our group's interests/needs. He has a rich knowledge base, very personable, and demonstrates an enthusiasm for each student.

I was part of a group of graduate students interested in the complexity of the conflict in the region - many of which who will be future conflict resolution practicioners. Since this was an educational tour, Samuel tailored our experience by not only unpacking the many different layers of the conflict at historical sites but also offering context in the recent developing events and how it is connected to history and law, and the effects on society -- we were impressed by his ability to make all of this digestible. Educational tours are just one of the many Samuel does, and I can't wait to book him for others! :)

Samuel gave a very interesting virtual talk on Israel - covering a variety of places in this diversity and fascinating country. There talk was both enlightening and entertaining, illustrating the many cultures of and stories about Israel, from ancient to modern times. Definitely a great invitation to explore more - and I am sure Samuel would be an excellent guide to those who have the chance to visit physically. In addition to his extensive historical knowledge, he was also able to answer questions such as where to find the best falafel houses in Israel!

Thanks so much for your very kind review! I'm really happy to hear that despite the fact that this was an online experience, I was still able to share some of the range of history and cultures in this land, and that you enjoyed the stories. I had a great time being in "guiding mode" even if this time it wasn't in the field. I remain hopeful that soon I'll be able to welcome you and many others physically back to Israel!

Samuel is an amazing storyteller. He knows his history and his places. He was a joy to hear! I wonder if we could book him for a bar mitzvah...

Thanks so much for your kind review, and I'm delighted that you liked all the stories. I enjoyed the banter! Barmitzvahs, weddings, brits (maybe!) - I'm always happy to find more reasons to share my passion for this country and everything within it.
