Gil is the best

Reviewed May 10, 2016

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.

Best guide I have ever had

Reviewed May 1, 2016

I had the pleasure of experiencing a Gil Shemesh tour the last time I was in Israel. This was not my first time in Israel, nor will it be my last. I have had many guides over the years, and I can say without a doubt Gil is the most knowledgeable, attentive, humorous, educational, and organized tour guide I have ever encountered. He has a very profound understanding of the country and this translates in to an experience like no other. I am somewhat of an Israelphile and can be very difficult to educate on all matters pertaining to Israel due to my own vast knowledge of the country. Gil was easily able to find bits of information I had never studied or learned before. The result was that I learned more on this trip than I had on any of my previous trips combined! If you are thinking about travelling with Gil do yourself a favour and book him - I promise you won't be disappointed.
