Meet the Team...
Itai was born and raised in Herzliya, Israel and now lives with his family in Sapir in the Arava. He has always been very passionate about Israel and from a young age Itai loved to travel and explore the country, especially the desert region. Upon returning from his post army service travels, he enrolled in the prestigious Tour Guide course and has been living and breathing Israel through his guiding ever since.
Over the years, Itai has worked with Israeli youth and families and young adult Jewish groups and delegations from abroad. He has also worked with many private families and small groups from countries such as Australia and America, some of whom have been in Israel for a touring holiday, while others for special occassions such as bar/bat mitzvahs or weddings.
Itai’s love of the land and diverse background in the field of guiding, provides him with a broad range of skills and knowledge to create unforgettable Israel and Arava experiences filled with depth, diversity, adventure and a whole lot of fun!
Tali was born and raised in Sydney, Australia. Growing up she was very involved in the Jewish community where she attended Jewish day school and a youth movement which sowed the seeds of her love for the land of Israel.
Throughout her university study of a Bachelor of Art Education in Australia, Tali co-ordinated many trips to Israel for young Jewish adults and also studied abroad in Jerusalem for a year at the Bezalel Art Academy. This further inspired her to want to make aliyah and pursue the Tour Guide license course.
Tali now combines her two passions of Art Teaching and Guiding to showcase the many narratives and flavours of Israel, specifically the Arava. She facilitates special workshops connecting people to the land through one-of-a-kind colouring-in art experiences.
" Itai made our family’s first trip to Israel one we will always remember. He created a great itinerary that fit our diverse interests which included a food tour of the Jerusalem market and hiking through and to some of Israel’s outdoor hidden treasures. Itai was a joy to tour with and was very engaging with stories about the Israeli culture and history. He made great recommendations for places to stay, and assisted us with our trip logistics so that we could relax and enjoy the experience."
