I don’t usually do advertisements on my blog; but occasionally someone comes along who deserves a shout-out. If you ever find yourself in need of a fabulous tour guide in Jerusalem, then Dvir Hollander is your guy.
We’ve used Dvir twice and we now consider him our dear friend. He’s incredibly knowledgeable about Jerusalem. He is well-schooled on Christian, Jewish and Palestinian history in the region. He is funny, warm and charming. He’s even great with kids. And, an added bonus, he’ll keep you from getting ripped-off by dishonest vendors. This past week, he tore into two different street vendors who artificially jacked-up prices because, in Dvir’s words, I “have blue eyes.” He’ll customize tours based on the ages, knowledge levels and desires of his clients. He was able to keep our kids spell-bound for nine straight hours on our first tour in November. Then last week, he worked his magic for another nine hours with my whacky family who were visiting from the U.S.
