Coronavirus update (3/9/2021): I’ve received 2 shots of the Pfizer vaccine for Covid-19 so I’m ready to guide. When we weren’t in lockdown here in Israel and we had 3 I took the opportunity to travel the country, finding new sites, refreshing familiar sites and exploring off the beaten track (I mean really off the beaten track) so now I’m even a better guide.
I’m looking forward to your next visit. I hope I’ll see you soon (and I’ll be ready).
Shalom. My name is Shmuel Browns and I am a tour guide, licensed by the Israel Ministry of Tourism. If you’re looking for a guide and help in planning your Israel trip then contact me to get started. I help individuals, families and groups create personalized itineraries that balance their interests, time, and budget.
I guide the whole country, from “Dan to Beersheva” (actually from the Golan in the north to Eilat at Israel’s southern tip including tours of Shomron and even a few Palestinian sites, Jericho, Bethlehem and Rawabi). I am a native English speaker (also fluent in Hebrew) and made aliyah/immigrated to Israel in 1986. When you hire me, you get a knowledgeable and experienced guide who is passionate about Israel.

Left things to the last minute? — contact me right away, phone numbers and email are on my business card. The image is from a photograph that I took on a trip to the Golan.
Israel is a deeply fascinating and varied country. I do tours focussed on archaeology, art and architecture; religion, history and culture; nature; food and wine. As a guide who is also a photographer I do special photography tours covering the country.
