Overview

Hi, my name is Arik, I am 39 years old and I love what I do! I've been giving tours for over 10 years. I launched my career working at the Holocaust museum in Jerusalem. At the time, I was completing my B.A at the Hebrew-U. These things gave me the initial set of tools to become a great tour guide. After five years, I realized this would be my vocation, so I decided to professionalize in the field and become licensed by the Ministry of Tourism. During that time, I completed my M.A in 'Land of Israel Studies' granted to me by the University of Haifa. So you can say I am a real expert in anything that has to do with Israel! While guiding I try to get everyone engaged, from the youngest to the elderly, using my iPad; illustrated atlases and maps; testimonials; music; videos; whatever works! I can testify that my English is impecable, I am easy going, flexible, fun to communicate with and in the end we will be great friends! I will help you plan the ultimate trip, from A to Z. Best, Arik.

Arik is a nice man and tried to accommodate but, unfortunately, we were disappointed in our private 4 day tour. We felt he rushed through the sights and provided insufficient content. Also his driving was very fast with tailgating and speedy lane changes. Even for...More
