All my kids rated her tour as one of the best days of our trip. She had a lot of extremely valuable information that people might not be so familiar with. She was very helpful and kid friendly and her information was very sophisticated. She picked up on when everyone was just jumping around, and then took the mic when everyone was calm again. My kids saw with their eyes not just a dead stone, but the story behind it. Their whole outlook about the history of klal yisroel changed.
I enjoyed the fact that she was very knowledge-able in the history of the places, brought the historical sources, and had an appreciation for Tanach. She is the kind of person who tunes into people. She tuned into what I would appreciate and it was a very lovely experience. When you spoke with her you have a much greater sense that this was a living place, with a living history.
When you have a tour guide with an appreciation and enthusiasm for the history of Yerushalayim, of the people who lived there, and the events that occurred there, you feel the same way.
It’s hard to figure out…
