Gideon was the guide for our church’s private tour of Israel. He was with us for 14 days and we were fortunate to travel all over Israel with the exception of the south by the Red Sea. Gideon was extremely knowledgeable and is one of the guides who teaches new guides to become licensed. He is also former military. Even though he is Jewish, his knowledge of Islam and Christianity is vast and that helps us understand the conflicts as well as how these folks all live together. You will not go wrong in selecting him for your guide. However, if you are a shopper or you are always late in getting to where you need to be, he might not be the best for you. When we expressed that we wanted to see something not on the tour or had to do something when it rained out one stop, he was able to arrange for the group to see other sights!
