Gill is an amazing guide! My group only had one day to tour Jerusalem and the Dead Sea, and Gill gave us 3 days worth of tour experience. His knowledge of the area and history, plus a splash of humor and knowledge of the local food and shops made the experience something I will talk about for the rest of my life. I highly recommend touring with Gill whatever your religious belief may be. You will love it!

VERY informative and fun guide! You could see how passionate he was and he was able to answer all of our questions. Took us to a great lunch restaurant and shopping as well. Would have loved to have more time with him to experience even more.

Was a little apprehensive prior to the trip since it was out 1st time to Jerusalem & didn’t know what to expect. Once we met Gill on our 1st of 4 days of touring, we relaxed immediately due to his knowledge & most importantly his personality. We felt we had known him for year’s rather than days. He treated us like family & made the trip exceed all of our expectations! Looking forward to our next trip with Gill.

We had the most wonderful guided day with Gil at Masada and the Dead Sea. Gil was knowledgeable, engaging, funny and really loved by my kids.

Gil was responsible, efficient and most communicative in the build up and planning of our day with him.

All of us so enjoyed our time with him, his incredible knowledge and the comfort of his vehicle.
I would absolutely use him again next time and highly recommend him!!

Gill is absolutely incredible at his work; we spent the morning touring the old city of Jerusalem where he wove together historical and religious perspectives from multiple points of view, shared incredible stories, and curated an experience so spiritual and emotional that I will remember it forever. Thank you, Gill!

Gill was the best guide and driver ever!! He has a vast knowledge of Israel history, politics, geography, food, and religion. He made this trip very relatable and fun to our entire family. We enjoyed having him around so much that the day we didn’t have him all my kids kept asking for Gill. His passion for Israel and its culture was so inspiring it made us want to be Israeli. We trusted him and felt at home with him. We highly recommend him for everyone wanting to tour Israel.

Although I have been to Israel a few times, never have I had such a clearly explained, comprehensive understanding of the sites put over by a guide. His knowledge is mind-blowing. There were many of us on the tour with ages from 9yrs to over 50 yrs, and Gil could relate his explanations to all our levels and gave us all the experience of a lifetime. He was patient, and humorous and knew the best and important spots to take us to at each site so we got the most out of each place. I could not recommend him more.

Gill is an excellent guide and tour planner. Extremely knowledgable, helpful, friendly, and has a passion for his work. Gill put together an amazing itinerary for us in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Galilee and the Golan. He took into account our interests and input, and put together a truly memorable trip. He was always well-prepared and shared with us so much about his country. I would highly recommend Gill.

We were originally on a JNF tour which was cancelled for a tepid response.
We decided to book a private tour guide and our friend in Israel recommended Gill Hoffmann.
That turned out to be a huge success.
Gill booked the hotels which were great and developed a. Itinerary.
We saw more sights, more efficiently and was able to add one additional day to the trip vs the JNF tour.
Gill has an in depth knowledge of Israel and provided a. Invaluable narrative on everything we saw.
He was flexible and incorporated our ideas into an excellent itinerary that he prepared.
He kept us safe and at the very end when we were having difficulty getting our departure COVID test results spent two hours solving the problem.
I would highly recommend Gill as your tour guide if you are planning a trip to Israel.
