          Expert deep dive into Jerusalem!
          We spent two action packed days with David / Israel In Color in Jerusalem. The first was spent in the old city, exploring ruins, all the quarters, the temple, and learning about all the civilizations come on gone. The second day was focused on new jerusalem at yad vashem + israel museum. They were both excellent. I'd visited those places before but it was my dad's first time to Jerusalem and he was blown away. And for me it was the best trip to Jerusalem I've done. David's way of teaching connects all the dots for a grander picture of the history of the city. David's passion for the history of Israel runs deep, and his knowledge, being an archaeologist, is profound. Having him lead the way was great, we got to dive deep into all kinds of history and have fun doing it. Afterward, we were reflecting that our only regret was that the tour wasn't several days longer. Strong recommend!

          Awesome, memorable experience with David and Israel In Color
          This was my third time to Masada, but by far my favorite. David is truly a *wealth* of knowledge about Israel in general, but *especially* about all things history and archaeology. I learned a lot I didn't know before, and it made for a very special day. Also enjoyed Ein Gedi and the Dead Sea. Would strongly recommend David! He's nice, has outstanding english, and is an expert archaeologist with a ton of passion. It was a fun, well organized, learning filled day.

          A great way to take a deep dive into Tel Aviv life, history and culture.
          This was such a fun and informative tour - David showed us a huge variety of top spots along with hidden gems and totally blew us away with his knowledge of the history and life of Tel Aviv - would highly recommend his tour!

          Awesome day exploring Tel Aviv
          David showed us the highlights of Tel Aviv and gave us a great understanding of the history of the city. We started off in Old Jaffa where he took us to some of the beautiful historical spots before venturing on to Carmel Market, where we tried a variety of authentic and delicious meals, my favorites being the hummus and knafe. We ended our tour in the area around Rothschild Blvd. We had a great day exploring the city. David was an awesome guide!

          Highly recommend this tour!
          We had an amazing trip with David and highly recommend this tour. We are a family of 5 with kids ages 15, 12 and 10. David, who has a PHD in archeology, is incredibly passionate about what he does and has incredible knowledge of Israel, archeology, history and all things Israel and beyond. He was able to relate to everyone and keep the kids interested and engaged. He was careful about everyone’s comfort, helped with tons of photos and was a lot of fun!

          Wonderful tours of jerusalem
          I highly recommend going on a private tour if Jerusalem with David. I was in Jerusalem for work and wanted to have a better understanding of ancient Jerusalem. We arranged two separate tours, one that explored Iron Age Jerusalem and the other the period of the second temple and Byzantine periods. I’m the tours were wonderful. David is an archaeologist, and very well informed. The trips were well planned and, as one can imagine, Jerusalem is an extraordinary place historically as well as culturally to explore. Thank you David for the terrific tours!

          Amazing tour of Israel
          If you want to have a clear understanding of Israel from a historical as well as current point of view, you simply cannot do better than touring with David. My husband and I spent 6 days total with David touring from south to north. His knowledge and clarity is incredible and he understands the importance of going over things again and again if necessary since there is there is so much to absorb. You will have fun with him and come away with a picture of Israel that is beyond informative, memorable and enjoyable. We all know that Israel is a complicated place with a complicated history so if you truly want a sense of what it is all about, I cannot encourage you enough to choose David as your tour guide. Also, despite being a solo operator, he is so thoroughly organized and professional that you will feel you got the service of large tour operation without the added layer of having to communicate with a third party. My husband and I had an amazing experience!

          Academic tour in Caesarea National Archeological Park with David
          We were on a tour with David, a group from the University of Chicago studying and touring Israel. David gave us a tour of the Caesarea National Park. The tour went between The Roman theater, The reef palace, Archaeological Park and ended in The Old City and Port (with delicious meal!!). It stretches chronologically from the era of the second temple and the rule of the emperors in the Roman Empire up to the Middle Ages and during the Crusaders. The tour was fascinating and answered our two main requests: A. To be suitable for undergraduate and graduate students. B. To be interesting and not remain at the "dry" academic details. This is a challenging task for any tour guide, and we were happy that David was able to combine our two requests with great success. The students as well as the accompanying professors came back with a very positive experience. We are highly recommending Israel in Color and David’s tours.

          An unforgettable day in the old city of Jerusalem
          Don’t look any further. David is your man. Another tour guide who crossed our paths on the spectacular walk on top of the city walls told us:” Oh, you got David! You’re very lucky! He’s the best.” Indeed, he is. We enjoyed very single minute of the entire day we spent with David. His historical and archeological expertise is spectacular. Walking the old city with David is travelling back in time. You have no clue how much you’re missing out without the experience and knowledge of David, ranging all the way from contemporary politics to ancient burrial rituals and biblical seals. A highlight that particularly stood out amongst all other gems along the way was the archeological site close to the western wall to which David took us, thanks to his excellent relationships with the leading archeologist of the site. Any further questions?:)

          David rocked!!
          David was incredible. He was easy to work with and we could make changes easily with him. There were only three of us and David, so it allowed us to move through things rapidly. He was a wealth of knowledge, and having a guide with a PhD in Archaeology never hurts! I'd definitely recommend working with him! He has some great connections and can customize things based on your interests!

          VIP connections and a lot of fun
          David was a great tour guide. Very passionate and knowledgeable about every location we visited. He’s also a very well-connected person. If you would like a unique private tour that includes meeting influential people in city, government, or the various faiths, he can make it happen. It made our tour significantly more rewarding, being able to experience the special locations most don’t get to see, and special people most don’t get to meet. Highly recommend David.

          Fun Time With David
          Discovering Tel Aviv with David was great. He took us all over the city from touring old Jaffa , the Carmel Market and the liberty trail. Be ready to explore and discover the old and the new Tel Aviv

          Great tour with David!
          David organized a great tour that was informative and interesting to all in our family, ranging from age 9 to 83. David is not only a licensed tour guide, but has a PhD in archaeology, which allows him to provide more depth and detail than a standard tour guide would. We definitely recommend!

        It is hard to express how great of a guide David was. With his knowledge of archeology, he is able to give insights that other cannot.
        We hired David for 2 days, one day was the Sea of Galilee and surrounding areas, and day 2 was around Ceasarea and Megiddo.
        David was so patient with all of our questions. With his PhD in Archeology his answers were far beyond what we experienced with other tour guides.
        We had a fun two days with David and his driver, Yulik. And, as a bonus, the shawarma places we went to for lunches were superb.
        When we went to Jerusalem, we sure missed David and his insights!
        We hope to return to Israel and will definitely be hiring David.
        100% recommend!

        We were so lucky to book a day with David. What are Shipp had last minute changes to the itineraries, and so our pre-booked excursion was canceled. We were able to see the great reviews David had and worked with him. He got everything arranged and was extremely flexible with our crazy schedule. He was able to cater the trip to what we wanted to see and more. He is very knowledgeable and professional. Would happily do more tours with him in the future when we come back!
