My Name is Arik, 38 years of age. I am a Private Tour Guide In Israel for 8 years Already! My first private tours in Israel that I've Given were at the International School of the Study of the Holocaust, Jerusalem. I started giving guided tours all over Israel from 2009 while working in the Holocaust Museum. This opportunity gave me the initial tools to be a great private tour guide in Israel! This extensive course about the holocaust made me extremely knowledgeable about this period of time and also to understand that to be a private tour guide in Israel is my vocation! After working for five years as a local tour guide I had decided to professionalize in the field and to be a licensed tour guide in Israel by the ministry of tourism. The 2 years course gave me the chance to deepen my knowledge base and to decide that giving private tours in Israel is my true calling. During the private tour guide course I also did a Master of Arts degree in the Land of Israel Studies that was granted to me by the University of Haifa, so my knowledge base had expanded even more! I Love being a private tour guide in Israel! I use all the tools posible when I give guided tours in Israel, using among other things: my Ipad, illustrated atlases, colored maps; in short I do whatever works to get the group interested. so do not think twice, book it!
