Assaf was excellent for our family trip. He wove stories and information about Israeli history and culture into the tour and was able to pivot between talking to someone who had been to Israel multiple times (me) and people who had not been there at all (my parents).
First Class Assaf was perfect for us. We are a family of 5 with 3 young kids. He's personable, on-time, well-informed, and was chill when our 19 month-old was fussy (at least twice a day). He guided us for 5 days in his new ride: Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, north and south Israel. The kids loved him. He blended must-see sites, history, philosophy, markets, great food; he was accommodating too, positing options based-on how the kids were fairing. Solid guy. Highly recommended
Assaf guided us through a 3 trip up the north coast of Israel and then the Golan Heights.Within minutes you feel like he is an old friend, his enthusiasm is infectious and he's great fun to be with. Clearly very knowledgeable about history & religion, but pitches it just right for his audience. Gave us a very interesting insight into the Kibbutz system.Good news - he also knows the best places to eat
We were a group of 8 (friends) traveling first time to Israel by cruise. Everything worked out fine and smooth since the beginning - Assaf greeted us with his bright smiley face at the port, a new, modern and comfortable van always picked up and dropped off at the right time / places, Assaf knows how to escape the queues (most sites are jam-packed!) and so we succeeded to visited all major sites per itinerary and can even add some little treats from a delicious local lunch, a Turkish coffee to a Dead Sea mud experience ! Needless to say, he always do his best to enlighten us on the history, culture and religion which are new and overwhelming to us! Assaf is always enthusiastic, amusing and listening / accommodating to our requests. We all like him very much and agree that he’s so far the best guide we’ve met! BRAVO Assaf! Look forward to seeing you next in Israel
Truly THE Guide if you want to discover Jerusalem! Thanks to Assaf for a great day in Jerusalem. We enjoyed the historically rich insights he gave to us as well as the culinary authentic spots he showed us. Thanks!
We highly recommend Assaf to all, young and old. Assaf Aizen is a friendly and knowledgeable guide. We recently toured with him for 4 days. This was not our first trip to Israel but the one we enjoyed the most. At this point in time we are in our mid 70s and we both have certain limitations. He was always sensitive to our needs and flexible and realistic enough to adjust the itinerary daily as needed. At times we decided to do something different than scheduled. These changes were always enjoyable. Assaf went above and beyond to make our daily excursions pleasurable and instructive. He enjoys what he is doing and therefore you do as well. Assaf is a real mensch. Our next trip back will definitely be with him. There are only positives with Assaf. We highly recommend him to all, young and old
Judean Desert (Massada & the Dead Sea) We had a great day. Assaf was awesome! He not only answered all of our questions, but did so like a seasoned storyteller. He was friendly and warm. It was truly a memorable experience
Wonderful, knowledgeable Guide! We spent 5 days with Assaf touring Israel for our first trip here. He was easy and fun to spend time with and a fantastic guide! His van was new and very comfortable with plenty of room for all our luggage. He was so knowledgeable about ALL the areas we visited and suggested so many great stops and restaurants that only a local would know! It made our experience so much more meaningful and much more customized than you could ever get from a large bus tour. I would highly recommend him and will definitely refer him to other people without hesitation and use him again.
