When traveling to Israel, most people have two options...go with a large tour group or hire your own personal tour guide. For me, it always seemed out of financial reach to hire my own tour guide, but I didn't like the idea of traveling around on a bus with 40 other people and waiting for the stragglers to get back...

Several years ago my husband and I were with Jacob for 10 days and he took us all around Israel. It was a wonderful experience. Jacob is knowledgeable, very pleasant company and an excellent guide. We had to use different guides a couple of times since when Jacob wasn't available and none measure up to him. Just recently we brought... More

Our family of 5 has been traveling for 10 months and although we don't agree on much, we have unanimously decided that Jacob is our favorite tour guide of the 36 countries we have visited to date. He is an amazing teacher and story-teller and held the attention of both the adults and the children (ages 14, 12 and 9... More

Jacob created the perfect itinerary for us! Although we only had five days he put together a program that included a variety of historical sites. The scope of his knowledge is vast, and he peppered his narrative with anecdotes that really brought history to life. We began the tour as strangers but ended it as friends. If I could give... More

We were lucky enough to have Jacob for an amazing day to Safed, the Golon Heights, and Migdala! His knowledge of the historical and religious significance of the country is incomparable! Even the UN Observers in the Golon Heights were listening to the history he gave us. He shared so much information with us and pointed out some incredible detail... More

We recently traveled with Jacob for 9 days in Israel. We were a mixed group of my parents, a friend of theirs, myself and my two boys ages 12 and 8 years old. All had been to Israel before except for my two boys. We were not sure how much they would enjoy the trip or how much they would... More

My wife, two children and I just completed a 5 day tour with Jacob. Without a doubt, it was a wonderful time and Jacob brought the Bible to life for us. His knowledge of the sites is what really stood out. We watched as bus tours simply shuttled people through, but Jacob wanted us to really grasp what we were... More

We spent over two weeks in Israel and ended it with a three-day tour of northern Israel with Jacob Firsel. There were six of us, but the vehicle was spacious and comfortable. Most of all Jacob made us feel welcome and showed us his country from a perspective that he knew would be most meaningful to us, making the absolute... More

My husband and I just completed a three day tour with Jacob. It was so wonderful having a guide with such knowledge plus charm.
