What Travelers Think About Shimon Mizrahi
My husband and I have traveled quite a bit internationally. We are very careful when choosing a private guide. What we experienced with Shimon is first rate. He goes above the “traditional tour and highlights”. He makes sure to show you the places and things you don’t even know about and wouldn’t even experience without him. He is genuine and instantly you feel like you are with a friend. Although we saw all the places we wanted to see, Shimon took us to so many other wonderful places and even made side stops if we saw something that interested us. He was accommodating and helpful from the moment he met us to the moment we departed. This was truly a one of a kind tour and will definitely return and highly recommend Shimon.

Best travel experience of our lives. My wife and I have traveled all over the world and Shimon is the best guide we have ever met. Shimon curated a tour for us that allowed us to see the entire country of Israel at our own pace without the crowds and big tour busses. His knowledge of the history, Biblical significance, and culture of the holy land is incredible. If you are trying to decide whether to do a big bus tour or create your own tour book Shimon now- don’t hesitate! He can help you with every detail and create a once in a lifetime experience for you. We are forever grateful to Shimon for bringing the holy land to life for us.
