“Thanks a lot for your wonderful guiding”
G, Reporter from Vietnam

“Thank you for two amazing and memorable days in Jerusalem, you opened our eyes to so much.”
M and G, London

“Thursday and Friday were, no exaggeration, two of the most enjoyable days of my life. Jerusalem itself may have had a bit to do with that, but your planning and implementation were both inspired. So, thank you very much for everything: for getting us to do so much and for being such an excellent guide.”
J, London

“Thanks for making our visit to Jerusalem a great one”
J. F., London

“Nikky did an outstanding job for us on Masada with the shortened amount of time she had. No one felt rushed, she gave all the important information, all the while presenting a warm human approach. She continued on the bus after we had to cut it a bit short at the synagogue, but made it seem like it was totally normal.

Knowing how in-depth her knowledge is, I found it really a privilege watching a professional give an informative, personal yet curtailed approach which was every bit as good as her usual presentation.

The guests couldn’t say enough good things about her.”

Mark, Tour Operator
