    We recently went on a private tour of Jerusalem with Levi Zelkind. He is an absolutely amazing tour guide - fluent in several languages, client-friendly, attentive to our interests and wants (including souvenir shopping!, ha-ha). His deep knowledge of history is impressive and his presentation is a lot of fun. All around he is the BEST tour guide we ever had! Highly recommended!

    This was our first trip to Israel. We were coming on short notice and had no time to do a good preparation. We were lucky that Levi has accepted our request for tours despite our sporadic communications. Our 6-days tour were the best vacation out of many we had. Levi is extremely knowledgeable and well-articulated, not to mention that his English is perfect. Every day we had some surprises – Levi made small stops at the places we didn’t know about. So, we saw all hidden jewels of Israel. We are coming back to Israel for another 5-days tour with Levi next year.

    Although I booked my tour with Zelkind Bibleland Tours, the actual tour service was not provided by that outfit. My understanding is that the owner (and usual guide) was called away from Israel unexpectedly. Rather than cancel my tour, he ensured that I was taken care of by another reputable tour operator, who provided me with an excellent experience. Although he was away, the Zelkind guy remained responsive on email and via text message -- to the point that I was able to book an additional private tour for a different day of my trip, which was eventually also fulfilled by an outside operator. I very much appreciated this level of integrity and customer service, even though I didn't experience Zelkind itself.
