Excellent tour of the Old City!

I highly recommend visiting Jerusalem with Tzachi Samiya. He was clearly an expert not just in the history but also in today’s goings ons, showing and teaching us about the big hits but also several hidden gems. He was extremely generous with his time and happy to adapt the tour based on our interests.

Seth has great knowledge and thoughtfully prepared visuals to aid our understanding of the history. He also gave us understanding of the modern day life in the old city. He is both passionate and knowledgeable about history. I found him very amicable and patient with all the questions.

Aviel gave us the most sincere and detailed introduction to Christian sites in Jerusalem we could have hoped for. It all just clicked. Plus he was just the nicest chap to chat with. Thanks!


Amazing tour of old Jerusalem

We had a pleasure to have a walking tour of the Old Jerusalem with Tzachi Samiya. It wlas an amazing tour. We had a big grouo with us and everyone had enjoyed it. Tzachi had no proboem keeping everyone’s attention. His stories were captivating. He covered all aspects of the city: history, religion, and division. We went through Armenian, Christian, Jewishand Arab sections of the Old City. The tour actually ended up being a lot longer than 2.5hrs. We had a big group of people of different ages and we all learned a lot and enjoyed it
