"great sense of humor and sensitivity"

Michael and I wish to express our deep gratitude for the wonderful tour you led on December 21st and 22nd, 2012. These days were definitely the highlight of our 2-­‐week vacation in Israel. You opened our eyes to the many layers of history and geography that although I grew up in Israel, I did not know.

Your tour of Jerusalem was masterful and so was the tour of Metzada, the Dead See, the Jordan River, and the minzarim on the way. Moreover, you had a good initial plan, which you kept adjusting according to our preferences, and you did it all with a great sense of humor and sensitivity. Most important: You are fun to be with.

We are sure that you will continue to thrive in your new profession. The state of Israel is fortunate to have you as a tour guide!

Sincerely, Varda Shoham, Ph.D.
