Yair is the perfect guide: knowledgeable, compelling, funny and patient. I spent two days with him and was actually sad to say goodbye. If you are going to Israel and want a guide then Yair is the best you can find. He will turn your trip from a good one to something special.

Yair made Jerusalem come alive for us, planning a thoughtful and comprehensive two-day itinerary that matched our interests and energies. His grasp of history and culture made each stop – including our hours-long guided walk through the Old City – many times more valuable than had we done it alone. At Yad Vashem, we scrapped the audio tour in favor of Yair’s personal narration – we can’t imagine doing it without him. When my kids do Birthright, I’m going to “gift” them a day with Yair!

Yair clearly took the time in advance to plan an interesting itinerary that took us places we would have never seen on our own. All the places we visited fit together and told a story of the region that took us from ancient times to recent events. And the whole family was interested and engaged. Thank you Yair, for a fabulous day!

During October 2019 my wife and I had the unique experience to enjoy two days of high quality touring conducted by Yair Zeidner.
The tours were conducted from Tiberias and provided a unique insight into the history, geography and culture of the Galilee and Golan heights.....
Shirley and I would like to thank Yair for the effort and time he put into the tours, to provide us with an unforgettable experience.

Just a little note to thank you for the wonderful private guided tour of the Northern Coast of Israel. Haifa, Akko, Caesarea would not have been the same for us without your stories. The lunch at the restaurant you took us to in Akko was something we won’t soon forget. We learned so much and enjoyed our day with you very much. A private tour with you is really something special which I would recommend to anyone. Five stars!
Very best wishes to you and your family from Germany,

Yair Zeidner was an excellent Israel guide. Thank Yair for his wonderful work. Yair is a linguist, an architect, an historian, a botanist, and a biblical scholar. Karen and I learned so much from him. We were thrilled to share the excitement of Remembrance Day and the 70th Anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel!

We spent three days hiking with Yair Zeidner as our guide in the Galilee. He was extremely knowledgeable, interesting, flexible, resourceful, and fun. We had a great time on our hike and highly recommend Yair as a guide for any type of outing

Thank you so much Yair for your time and energy on Monday. The tour of Jerusalem absolutely blew me away! You are fantastic at presenting all the facts in a very practical way, without judgement or editorial.
I really enjoyed your fair and balanced explanations as it allowed me to make my own conclusions. Plus, you are extremely funny and charming so that made it all the more fantastic!
You have a fantastic job, and I know it's something you do every day but never underestimate that you are a large part of so many people's "bucket list" trips and part of people's special memories of Israel.

We enjoyed the day with Yair very much! It was such a pleasure to visit Nazareth and Lake Kinnereth with him in February 2016.
He perfectly knows all the different sites to see and he told us a lot about the historical and religious aspects. We can highly recommend him as a very kind and educated guide who’s ambition was to give us a great time!
Israel is now definately one of our very special places we went to. And we hope to come back!

Hi Yair, Just to let you know the trip to Israel, although it was not my first or tenth trip , you made it very exciting for Dave and I. It was something for these two 60 somethings to experience Israel from such a challenging view. We were not only entertained but well educated by your commentary. I understand that you had a lot to do with the format of the trip-you created a variety of different experiences that we will long remember. Thank you for all your wonderful knowledge and opinions. This was a trip of a lifetime. I thank you for both Dave and I. Happy and healthy New Year to you and your lovely family.

Yair, My dad and I wanted to thank you again for your tour of Jerusalem and the Old City! We had a wonderful experience working with you. You are very knowledgable and fun person to spend a day with. My dad keeps telling everyone about the Abu Taher restaurant he ate at.... I think his head is still spinning from how amazing our trip was.Thank you again!!
