Gill is amazing, open minded and knowledgeable. If you plan to visit Jerusalem and the rest of Israel I would definitely recommend using his services. I had a one day tour with Gill and he showed me the Golan Heights and the border areas with Lebanon, Syria and Jordan plus so many other attractions along the road. He can provide a great amount of context with regard to the tourist attractions.

We booked a last minute tour of Masada and the Dead Sea with Gill and could not have more pleased! We were truly lucky to have him as our guide for the day! He was not only pleasant and knowledgeable, but also very passionate and enthusiastic about introducing us to things that were off the beaten path and telling us the history behind all the things! Can’t wait to come back and explore more of this beautiful country with Gill!

Toured the Holy Land with a small group of friends with Gil as our guide. Gil was very informative, friendly , personable, and made our trip a memorable one. We hit the ground running and never missed a beat. He took us to the most delicious places to eat. He was constantly thinking ahead and making suggestions to see what we preferred to do. He read stories from the bible pertaining to places we were at, which made it come to life. We traveled in comfort which was very much appreciated after walking through the streets , up stairs, and down hills. He spoke spanish as well which made it very nice, considering we had one in our group that spoke only Spanish. Gil was very open to questions that we had and also asked questions of his own which showed we were not just a group of people to him.He made our trip wonderful and a great experience.

We were so pleased to be able to tour with Gill Hoffman for the second time. My husband and I visited Israel in May of 2017 and were so pleased that we could accompany our son and family this May. We began planning this trip with Gill several months prior to our visit. He worked with us every step of the way, providing transportation to and from the airport, recommendations for lodging, and providing directions for us on the days that we were touring on our own. Gill also arranged for us to tour Bethlehem with an excellent guide and driver.

Gill is knowledgeable in all areas of both the Old and New Testaments. He brought these stories to life for us and made our journey so amazing. Our two grandchildren are age 6 & 9. They loved Gill! A tour with Gill is more than excellent!

What can we say?. An amazing, energetic,passionate and knowledgeable guide. A whirlwind tour over a few days with Gil covering Yad Vashem, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Masada and the a Dead Sea. When he was not available he arranged high calibre colleagues for other excursions. I don’t think we could have possibly imagined a better experience. Gil goes that extra mile to make sure the tours are truly memorable. Alf and Bernadette

We visited Israel to celebrate our son’s Bar Mitzhav. We were extremely fortunate to have Gill as our guide in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem for 4 days, we also visited Masada and the Dead Sea with Gill. I can say with complete confidence that Gill might be the best guide in all of Israel. His knowledge of history, sights, food, culture, etc. is second to none. What I think separates Gill from other guides is his amazing personality. He was able to read our family perfectly and provide the just the right experience. My children hugged Gill on the last day and are still talking about him and his warm personality. We felt safe, comfortable the entire time. We learned so much from Gill that we felt like locals after a few days. I highly recommend Gill’s services to anyone visiting Israel.

We were introduced to Gill Hoffman by friends that spent 10 amazing days touring with him in Israel. Although we were not able to spend as much time with Gill, the time we spent with him was still the highlight of our trip! Gill is highly experienced, personable, knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around. His interesting stories and his ability to connect our tour stops to the bible really brought Israel and its history to life! We highly recommend Gill and look forward to touring with him again in the future!

We had an amazing time on our trip and it was 100% due to our incredible guide, Gill! It was like taking a 10 day trip with your smartest, funniest friend who happens to know everything about Israel and who wants you to love it as much as he does. He led our boisterous 14 person group of tweens, teens, and adults with patience, resourcefulness, and humor, even when we wandered off or took longer than expected to get moving. Gill really knows his stuff too! His references throughout the trip, ranging from the ancient writings of Josephus to Old Testament passages to Seinfeld, connected the past to the present at every stop we made. And he’s fun to be around! We laughed as much as we learned. If you’re looking for the best of the best, Gill is the guide you want.
