About my business

I’ve been involved in the tourism industry since 2007. I hold a license as a tour guide, and I’ve also earned an additional degree in Archaeology and Land of Israel Studies from Bar Ilan University. My unique talent lies in simplifying the complexity of Israel for any visitor and creating meaningful connections to this land. The COVID-19 period posed significant challenges, especially for independent tourism professionals. Fortunately, my business not only managed to recover but has also seen growth since then. I believe that the loan will provide valuable support for further expansion.

About me

I was born and raised in Israel, and have always loved experiencing new places, meeting people, and exploring the hidden corners of this amazing country. I live with my husband and our 5 children right outside Jerusalem, a city I call home. I believe that every tour should be tailored to the client so they will connect to Israel.

Due to the war, There are no tourists in Israel and no business. This is the second time I am facing such challenges after Covid.
