Gil Shemesh is the best tour guide period. We landed in Tel Aviv and for the next 10 days didn't have to worry about a thing. Gil knew exactly what we needed, where we needed to be, and for how long we needed to be there. He was incredibly well informed and wasn't the least bit pushy in his views. I was concerned going into the trip that it would be a constant whirlwind of pro-Israel propaganda, but that wasn't the case at all, and I'm very grateful for that. Gil is an excellent human being, with a wonderful sense of humor. I wish only good things for him and his family.
