“From Friday dusk until sunset Saturday, train and bus service is not available; plan to stay near your lodgings or make arrangements to rent a car.”
I am deeply connected to Israel and its people through my husband's family, who are spread all over the country. This and my many visits to this magical destination give me insight into the culture that few can boast. Israel is old and new at once-just look at Tel Aviv's high rises and Jafaa's ancient souks. I'll guide you to the best of both worlds, from the can't-miss attractions to the places most tourists never see. Ask me where to find the most scrumptious falafel you'll ever taste and how to avoid immigration troubles when traveling between Islamic countries. Imagine skiing Mt. Hermon, visiting a winery, and taking a sunset horseback ride-all in the same day! I'll create an itinerary that includes all your favorite things. I'll even share the spot where you can swim with wild dolphins and make the advance reservations you need to experience the adventure. Call today and partner with the Insider who's got the skills to bring all of Israel's wonder to light.

“Ask me about an eclectic restaurant (and brilliant cocktails) in Tel Aviv whose setting transports you around the Mediterranean.”
Born in Jerusalem, I have strong ties to Israel. From the ancient port towns with their colored histories to the back-alley restaurants that serve the best homemade food, I know which experiences will make your journey unforgettable. I can arrange for you to dine in the home of a Druze family-a tasty encounter you simply must try-or I'll suggest you peruse the stalls of a shuk for fresh olives, nuts, or handicrafts. Perhaps you'd like to witness cascading gardens that can only be viewed from a hilltop, or learn about the fascinating hoodwink that occurred at the Ayalon Bullet Museum. I can arrange all this and more, and give you the tips you need to save time and money. Tips like how to avoid paying too much for a cab, and when to stay off your cell phone. Whether visiting the site where Jesus is said to be buried or the museum dedicated to lives lost in the Holocaust, Israel will move you. Let me be the one to show you just how much-call or email me today.

“A world-class destination for sophisticated travelers.”
Born and raised in Israel, I have a special passion for this region. As well, I have been in the travel industry for 30 years, both in Israel and the United States. Israel is smaller than the size of New Jersey, yet it is a world-class destination for sophisticated travelers. Israel offers cultural attractions on par with Europe and the United States. The country has more museums per capita than any other on earth. You will find glamorous spas and a chic restaurant scene - all within an atmosphere that combines the very ancient with the ultra modern. I am an Israel specialist, a designation given to me by the Israeli Government Tourist Office. This full combination of knowledge makes me the best candidate to help you with a trip to this historic place. I I can share with you information from my personal experience like what to do, where to stay, length of time, what to wear, where to dine, currency and where to shop as well as what to shop for. Whether you want to see the country via private car and driver, or travel with your church or temple group by bus, I will design just the right trip for you.
