Thank you for recommending Shimi for our vacation to Israel.

He was fantastic!!! He gave us the VIP treatment. He was an expert and very professional, we learned a great deal and saw a tremendous amount of Israel. He was very fun, patient and thoughtful with us.

We had a great trip to your beautiful country!

Thank you for recommending him.

Dear Shimi,

Thank you for the many photos you have so graciously shared with Barry, Mildred and me.  You were a wonderful tour guide in every way possible and you certainly kept your promise that it would be a trip of a lifetime. It will take me a very long time to convey to my church group what you taught us about Israel, her history, beauty, creativeness, determination, and generosity.

We talked on the way home about how smart you are and how blessed we were that God led us to you as our guide. We met you at the airport as our guide but feel we left from you at the airport as our friend.  I will continue to pray for you, your family, and Israel. If you ever decide to visit Alabama, our homes are open to you.

May God richly bless you.

Your “Crazy American” Friend,

It is an honor to know you. Thank you for sharing your in-depth knowledge of Israel’s history in such a personal and fun way today.  I am truly blessed to call you friend.  I will absolutely call you when I am back in Israel. Next time there will be three (You + me + Susan)

A real good luck having you to make our tour of Israel.

It was a real pleasure meeting you, and a real good luck having you to make our tour of Israel.

We were impressed by your knowledge of all the three religions, the various cities, land ;the love of your country, the way you presented it, the history, the politic, the culture!  Amazing.

We shall warmly recommend you to all our friends and relative in France, as it is not everyday that you meet such a ” complete guide”. The experience was enhanced by your knowledge,, your kindness and helpness. Thanks again to you.

Shall certainly meet on another tour in Israel.

Wishing you all the best

Dream trip better than I ever thought possible

Thank you for making our dream trip better than I ever thought possible. During the trip, someone in Old Jerusalem, stepped out of their shop and told us that the day we found you was our lucky day, I have to agree. Shimi, your heart for people; along with your depth of knowledge; and love for  country gave us so much more than what we paid for. For that, I thank you. When I share about what we learned from you, others get so excited and say, “I want to go next time”. I am already starting another list of places and things to see and to learn from you next time. I pray that the blessing of care you showed me (when I was sick), will be returned to you and your family 100 times.  Above all, my family thanks you for the safety you provided and I Thank you for everything. I do believe you are THE ultimate tour guide of ALL tour guides.

Thank you, Shimi

Thank you so much Shimi for the photos.

We spent the most wonderful two days of discovery learning with you.

You opened our eyes and our hearts to your beautiful country, and you gave wise commentary about many complex issues. We valued your input and we enjoyed your company.

Thank you again for your efforts. L’hitraot in Israel very soon.

With love
