The trip with Gilad exceeded all of our expectations – it was perfect in every way. Gilad prepared an outstanding itinerary for us, taking into account our interests and requests. We saw things with him that we know we would not have seen with anyone else. His knowledge of history, archeology and religion is seemingly exhaustive. And – he is charming and a lot of fun! He was singularly focused on ensuring that our trip was everything that we wanted it to be. He instilled in us an excitement and love for Israel that is difficult to put into words.

Dear Gilad,
for William and I it was an amazing experience. We connected with you and knew how special you are and that's what always and ONLY works ... view more for us. Your knowledge is totally awesome. We wish we could have spent time with you, just the three of us or some of our arty intelligent and sensitive friends.
We had a nice dinner tonight and everyone reflected on the past 8 days. Everyone loved the experience and appreciated your knowledge, but not the way we understand you.
We will see you in New York and/or back in Israel next year hopefully with our son and maybe his wife.

Big hugs, your friends,

Ricky and William.

Dear Gilad, I wrote a postcard as soon as i got to Denmark as wanted to thank you so much for being such a great tour guide, what fun we had with you, remember ... view more Kim and I at the back of the bus with Gunnar.. When i went to get your card realized there was no address only e mail, so thought I would wait till I got home. Thought of you and your family in Berlin. Did you get there. We had a wonderful holiday and only back on the 3rd and then been flat out with family from Denmark, and tonight decided I must write. Hope your family are all well, thank you for being so wonderful so pray for peace every day for Israel and love your country, and pray for you and your family to always stay safe and well. So hope we will meet again one day. With love from Kim and Caroline Rune

Hi Gilad,
Hope you haven't forgotten me! I meant to write to you immediately and then I kept postponing it. And you know how time flies!
But now ... view more here I am to thank you once again for having made our stay in Jerusalem soooooooooo memorable!
We enjoyed our stay in a way no words can express. We love Israel more than ever before plus you the people. actually my mum had visited Israel in 1975 and loved it lots too.
Will have to leave you for now. Am going to Uganda for holidays (my home country) - will leave Europe for the time being for one month. Will do me good too!
Greet your wife & children and make sure you get in touch whenever you're in Paris.
cheers,
Edith
