Linda Kirschenbaum/Charles Carpati - December 2013

We spent a 6 days with Ofir as our guide on a tour with another family - 5 adults and 3 kids ages 4-13. Ofir drove a small, very comfortable bus and we went through Jerusalem, south to the Dead Sea, Ein Gedi, Qumran and Beit Shean and North to Tiberias, the Golan Heights, Acre, Tzfat and many other sites. Ofir paced the tour beautifully, and was totally in tune with the rhythms of the kids and adults. He knew perfect places to stop, including a quick kids' decompression at an amusement park, and great places to eat. He brought all the sights alive with history, politics (old and new) and humor. He did a marvelous job, worked hard to have us get everything from the experience, and essentially joined our families. In fact, he had been recommended to us by a friend who is also an Israeli tour guide! We would definitely go with Ofir as our guide on any future Israeli tours, of which we hope there will be more!

ROSITA DOLGICER/LARRY PLEASANT - December 2013

WE HAD A WONDERFUL TRIP TO ISRAEL WITH OFIR.
HIS KNOWLEDGE OF THE COUNTRY'S HISTORY AND POINTS OF INTEREST ENGAGED ADULTS AND CHILDREN ALIKE.
I HAVE BEEN TO ISRAEL MANY TIMES BEFORE, BUT STILL LEARNED AND SAW A LOT OF NEW THINGS AND PLACES UNDER OFIR'S GUIDANCE. HIS COMFORTABLE BUS, FRIENDLINESS AND SENSE OF HUMOR MADE THE TRIP EDUCATIONAL, BUT FUN AT THE SAME TIME. HE FOUND FUN THINGS FOR THE KIDS TO DO, WHEN THEY NEEDED A BREAK FROM HISTORY. WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK FOR ANOTHER TRIP WITH OFIR. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR A WONDERFUL TIME.

Mark & Melanie McRae - October 2012

Hi Ofir
I would just like to take a minute to thank you for making our stay in Israel one of the best holidays ever. By the time we finished our three days with you it felt like you were one of our close friends. I doubt many tour guides have the in depth knowledge you have about your country. Your explanation of the places you took us to brought the places alive.

If ever we come to Israel again I would definitely use your services again. I would also say to anyone reading this that Ofir is a sincere, humble person who genuinely has an interest in make your tour a great experience.

Ofir,

I just wanted to send you a personal message to thank you for the amazing travel experience. I know the trip was out of the ordinary, but if every guide had the same spirit of adventure that you have, I can only imagine my possibilities for traveling!

The rest of my trip was very nice. When I do return to Israel, I will be sure to get in touch for another tour; I'm sure there are many more possibilities to consider. Again, thank you for a day that will be committed to memory for a long time.

Hi Ofir,
I just want to say Tadah Rabah. I was with Pastor Lloyd's tour the end of March.

I never expected to have such a perfect trip to Israel, but because of Pastor Lloyd and Ofir Horn, it was perfect. I have wanted to go to Israel for many years, but I was on this tour only because of my generous son and daughter in law, Randall and Jenny. God put me in a perfect place at a perfect time.

May God bless you and your family, and I will always pray for the peace of Israel.

Shalom

Marina Novikov - April 2012

If you are looking for a private guide in Israel you should consider Ofir Horn. He took us on a one day tour to Jerusalem. We had a group of 6 people including two 13 years old kids. Ofir made the tour very informative and interesting for all of us. The kids liked him and I think they learned a lot.
The day started at 9:00 am when Ofir picked us up from the place we stayed in Natanya. He had a very comfortable van that fits up to 7 people. He drove us to Jerusalem were most of the time we walked through the Old city. At the end of the day he drove us back home.
The benefit of a private tour is that you can pick and choose what you want to see, how much time you want to spend at each place, where you want to eat, etc.
Ofir is very knowledgeable in history, religion, politics. Also he is a very nice person and is very good with kids. We really enjoyed our time with him and hope to get back to Israel and meet him again soon.

Debbie Buckner, Chicago - December 2011

I am the only one of my family who had been to Israel before - I was in high school and lived on a kibbutz so I knew this would be a completely different trip. My children were 11, 13 (had her bat mitzvah at Masada) and 14. I wasn't sure how they would handle the full day of traveling and I was pleasantly surprised at their zest for the knowledge and history that Ofir and Israel had to offer. Not only was Ofir completely knowledgeable of every inch of his country and its history, he became a part of our family! My 11 year old wants to have his Bar Mitzvah in Israel too and we couldn't and wouldn't dream of coming back without Ofir being our guide!

Rob and Jen Shaw, USA - June 2011

Ofir,

Just wanted to thank you again for an excellent two days in Israel. The walking up to Masada for the sun rise and the effort that you gave was beyond any expectation.
Jen and I hope to visit again and you can expect an email when the planning begins.

Shalom!

Pastor Phil Evans - November 2010

Greetings,
Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that our tour of Israel during the Steps of Paul steps was wonderful.
Our little team of 18 people was blessed to be guided by Ofir Horn. It is the first time we have met Ofir and just wanted to let you know that he was very easy to work with.
Ofir made it easy to customize our time in Israel to meet our requirements. He allowed ample time for me to teach from the scriptures and was flexible with our special requests.
Ofir was a wealth of information and all the people in our group quickly fell in love with him.

Thanks again
Looking forward to working with you again on the next trip to Israel!
