I want my website to be the best source of information about traveling to Israel, with relevant and accurate information about sights in Israel as well as its society and culture. If you’ve encountered a mistake, or have a question or idea, you’re invited to contact me at
If you’re looking for an agency to take care of your trip or a private guide to take you around (prices are around $350-400 for a guide without a car and $600 with a car) then you can write to me and I’ll connect you to the right people, but please don’t ask me for personal tips to help you plan your itinerary.
I’m a really nice guy, but I’m sorry to say this is a one-man show and I don’t have the time or resources to give personal tips.
Check out my two posts about tours in Israel and itineraries: they are a good place to start understanding your options.
Thanks for your understanding,


Something from my last project…


Planning your trip to Israel?

I want my internet site to be the best source of information about traveling to Israel. For that to be the case, I need your help. I want to know what you want to know, so if you have any questions, please write them down here and I will do my best to answer them!


  1. Hello- I follow you on YouTube & bought your booklets. They have been been very helpful as I plan my trip to Israel for next spring, so thank you for your professional guidance! We would like to visit the Elah Valley if possible. Do you have any suggestions for getting there from Jerusalem? A private tour guide is outside of our budget.

  2. Hi Oren!

    First off, let me just tell you that your videos are simply aaaaawesome!
    We’re travelling for the first time in Jerusalem the first two weeks of September and was wondering if you do group tours in the Old city and how we can sign-up?
    We’re a group of three, me, my husband, my mom who is also a Christian pastor so this is really a spiritual tour specially for her.
    Looking forward to hearing from you!

  3. Hi Oren,

    I have watched almost all your videos and they are very good and most helpful. I am visiting Israel and have a question about transport. I will be in Israel in January 2020 and have chosen to stay in Bethlehem (I understand it is Palestine but I want to be close to the Church of the Nativity) so I wanted to take the train to Jerusalem and then a taxi to Bethlehem. Is the fast train from TLV airport to Jerusalem that you mentioned in one of your videos now fully operational ?

    Thank you


  4. Ma nishmah Oren, I discovered your videos and got hooked. They are wonderful and very helpful, Kol Hakavod! I would like to suggest you to do a video on the subject “Jerusalem for Jews”. We really don’t care for Christians and Muslim’s sites. We are a small group (my daughter, granddaughter and I) planning just a few days in Jerusalem for her bat-mitzvah (on a real tight budget). My daughter has dangerous food allergies and we plan to rent a small Airbnb so we can cook her meals “at home” and be safe and sure that she will not fall ill during our days in Eretz Zion. Any neighbourhood to suggest? Todah.

    1. Shalom! I guided mostly Christians so it is easier for me to write about Christian sites, but I will I will write more about Jewish places. When it comes to Airbnb it really depend on you as many apartments are not in the city center.
