"MAKE THE BEST OF LIFE"
Everything in life is so sudden and so surprising, we simply don't know what's going to happen next.
We just have to accept and respect and adjust to living in the new situation.
Let's all try to enjoy those close to us, to be kind to them and give them encouragement in everything they did.
Let's enjoy our kids and our family for a good long life
What is special about this site is that I am your guide. Other sites advertise tours and you don't know who the guide is going to be. Here you know because it's only me.

I was born in a little town in S. Africa by the name of Krugersdorp where I did all the wonderful things that go to developing a child into an adult. I attended primary school, high school and like all Jewish children, Heder (an afternoon school where I learnt the basics of the Jewish Religion, Hebrew and Jewish History),
I loved all of this, but constantly felt that there was more to know than the teachers taught me. My curiosity lead me to delve deeply into the history of all religions, especially Christianity and Judaism and to learning languages.
I knew that language was the key to information, so now I speak, study and guide in German, English, Hebrew, Spanish and Dutch and I still keep on learning from the people of the various countries whom I've been guiding for the last 35 years.
I came to settle in Israel with my family, then 2 sons now 4 and 4 grandchildren.
I love my work and thank God every moment for giving me this love of learning about His holy Land. Either I'm in the library, searching for new information about old sites, that I visit with tourists, or I'm out walking to discover new and exciting, places, rarely visited by tourists, or I'm out with tourists telling them about this wonderful land and it's history and most of all the relationship with God.
My motto in life is to love everybody and everything and to give thanks to God for everything. I don't consider myself religious, but I belong to the Jewish Faith. I love all religions. Judaism is my religion because I was born with it and because I've learned to respect its tenets and I love the Jewish People. I believe that the Jewish People gave the other religions like Christianity and Islam their belief and they should love and be grateful to the Jews for that.
My Promise for Good Service:
I have been guiding tourists in Israel for about 40 years and I am at the disposal of any person or group of any size, from 1 to 1000 or more.
Of course, I have help from agents in Israel and bus companies, but I oversee it all.
Although I prefer guiding smaller groups, because of the more personal relationship that I can establish with each individual, most of the groups that I guide are between 20 and 50 people
As you have seen it's difficult to give a standard program, each of the programs are specific for the group involved.
There is no obligation. People can check the program and compare it with others and choose whatever suits them. They are only obliged to me when they finally commit themselves, which is when they are satisfied that the program and the price is right for them. I assure you that they will get everything I promise in the program and often more than I promise.
Usually the bigger the group the less will be the price per individual.
You will always get my personal attention because I only handle one group at a time.
I'm on Whatsapp and will be happy to talk with you any time.
Wishing you a great day
People share their experience
"Just a short note to thank you so much for our walk together last Wednesday. I want to say again how much I enjoyed your company, your comments and observations, and the further insight you gave to me concerning Jerusalem and the myriad aspects associated with it. Also, thank you so much for caring for my physical needs: I so much enjoyed our lunch stop.
I haven't the time now to explore your web site but over the next days, I shall do so.
I don't know when I shall again visit our supplier in Israel, but if you are agreeable, I should like to contact you when I do, and take another walk with you."
"Thank you ever-so-much for the tour yesterday, Leon!
I hope you could tell I so enjoyed chatting with you, and listening to your stories.
I had an ABSOLUTE blast, and would love to come back and spend more time with you, just to absorb. Perhaps even bring the family.
You made my trip/visit to Jerusalem a sincere treat!"
We hiked with you for one day in Jerusalem. It was a memorable day for us... We LOVED it. You were great!
Geert Van Kamp:
Ondertussen zijn we weer terug in Nederland. We hebben genoten van Israel en zeker ook van de dag met jou als gids. Dank en wie weet tot de volgende keer.
Opa and Oma:
"Thank you for having paid such attention to our six questions all along the trip!
We are still reminding them in our conversations with friends and family.
