We had an amazing private tour with David in the north. It was really the highlight of our trip to Israel. David has a deep knowledge that he shares on his tours, it is not simply repeating information like other tours. If I were in Israel longer, I would book more tours with him. And if I come back to Israel, I will plan another tour with him.

David is awesome and we highly recommend doing a private tour with him! I was traveling with my parents and he took everyone's preferences into consideration. He was flexible going from site to site and can give you the best story telling and detail, if you are into that, and if your parents want just some of the highlights, he can do that too. He knows Israel extremely well and can help guide you to your interests and can go deep in any area you choose. He brought us to fabulous locations and we really enjoyed our time with him. It's a rare find to have a private guide that is so thoughtful, kind, interesting, and knows all the best restaurants (and mundane details such as bathroom stops). Don't hesitate to book!

We spent the day touring with David at multiple spots around the Sea of Galilee and it was very enjoyable. He is an excellent guide that was friendly, knowledgeable and informative. His knowledge of the Bible and Israel was very impressive. We recommend David and hope our paths cross with him again.

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!
