I can’t express how grateful I am to have had Assaf as a guide during my family’s trip to Israel. We toured the country for five days during my winter break from college. Assaf shared a wealth of not only knowledge but also stories and insights about every place we visited, combining pieces of history and culture and politics and archaeology and religion to help us appreciate the rich complexity of each site, sprinkling in personal stories along the way. He perfectly tailored his guiding to meet us where we were, learning what we were curious about and curating the material he shared to match as the trip went on, gracefully and capably answering all of our questions. And we so appreciated his gastronomic expertise — every meal he recommended or ordered for us was an absolute joy! These five days felt like a dream.

We just got back from an amazing family trip to Israel, and choosing Assaf to guide us was the best decision we made in planning the trip. All the glowing online reviews? Believe them. We’ve traveled all over the world, and I can say with confidence that Assaf was the best guide we have ever had.

This was our first visit to Israel; our main goal for the trip was to more deeply connect with the roots of our Catholic faith, but we also wanted to gain a better understanding of the rich history of this land and peoples, and of the longstanding conflicts that have beset the region. Food was also an important focus for us. And Assaf delivered on all counts. The trip was everything we hoped it would be — eye-opening, spirit-lifting, thought-provoking, and palate-pleasing.

Over five days we explored the country from the Golan Heights in the north to the Dead Sea in the south, and driving around with Assaf was like being shown around by a friend – a brilliant, articulate, thoughtful, funny friend. Everywhere we went Assaf provided historical and sociopolitical context for sites we were visiting, highlighting recurrent themes and tying together things we had learned at other sites. He is a lively, passionate, engaging storyteller, and his narrative was supplemented by personal anecdotes, scripture, humor, and even music. He was always ready with thoughtful, frank answers to our many, many questions. And at holy sites he gave us time and space to reflect and pray on our own. We really appreciated that he arranged for us to spend an afternoon in Bethlehem with a Palestinian guide he works with, Noor, who brought us to the Church of the Nativity and also the security wall, and gave us valuable perspective from one living on the other side of the wall.

On the practical side, Assaf made the planning of the trip very easy; he was great at communicating via email, and helped us craft an itinerary that covered everything we wanted to see. During the trip he was always professional and punctual, and was flexible in adjusting the itinerary if we had special requests that came up. We were very happy with his hotel and restaurant recommendations, and the Jerusalem market tour we took with him was a sumptuous and memorable way to cap a special journey through a fascinating country, led by a remarkable guide.

If you're looking for the best tour guide in Israel, you need to hire Assaf Boker. We just returned from a two-week tour with Assaf throughout Israel. He is highly professional, incredibly knowledgeable and extremely personable and well-spoken.

This was our first trip to Israel and we had the good fortune to be guided by this spectacular guide over the course of several days. We are a family with two children and toured Israel both as a family unit, and as part of a bigger group for a special occasion. Assaf skillfully led us through the country with his vast knowledge of Israel and the many historic sites visited. Assaf is a true gem. He is extremely knowledgeable, easy to listen to, funny, smart, personable with flawless English. Equally valuable, he is highly responsive and completely reliable. We exchanged several emails ahead of our meeting, and were so impressed by his timely follow through to any of our needs. It was a true pleasure to have met him and we wouldn't hesitate to work with him again. We have traveled to almost 50 countries and have worked with numerous guides before. Assaf stands out as one of the best guides we have met. It is absolutely no surprise that he has well over 500+, Perfect, 5 * reviews on this forum. He is the real deal, and you will be in excellent hands with him as your guide.
