My name is Samantha Ben Avraham. I am an American-born private Israeli tour guide, and I am IN LOVE WITH ISRAEL! I believe that this is a wonderful, beautiful, and simply fantastic place. There is so much to see, to explore, and to learn about. After living in Israel for five years, and four of them consecutively, I am learning new things everyday. Finally, I love to learn, visit, and revisit every inch of this wonderful land.

As a result, my greatest goal as a tour guide is to show these beauties from the Biblical Period to modern culture of today’s State. I also aim to help my tourists to establish a relationship with Israel on their own terms, and allow it to flourish in its individual way. Each of us has different interests and things we connect to. Therefore, we need to use these interests to help you connect and create your own relationship with Israel. And so I aim to help you with the establishment of your own relationship with the State of Israel.


if you are looking for a trip to Israel, you have come to the right place. If you are looking to design a more personalized trip, you have come to the right place. And if you love Israel much as me, you have come to the right place!! I’m not looking to take you on just any trip in Israel, but rather a trip that is perfect for you. A trip that is both meaningful and fun at the same time. THIS IS NOT YOUR BUBBIE’S ISRAEL!!!

In conclusion, take a look around and feel free to contact me with any questions or comments. I look forward to seeing and hearing from you. See you on the Israel side!
