Your trip to ISRAEL starts HERE! (New opening video 2020)


Hi guys, if you are planning a trip to Israel
or just want to know more about the country then you are in
the right place. My YouTube channel and website will help you
plan the trip better, save a lot of money, and, most importantly, enjoy Israel much more. My name is Oren and I’m a professional Israeli
tour guide and I first considered building this website
and YouTube channel in the run-up to my marriage. Forty
guests came to the wedding from Germany (this is what happens when you marry a German girl)
and I was looking for a website to send them before
they came and I couldn’t find anything helpful. There are
many internet sites that will sell you tour packages and hotels, and there are many bloggers/vloggers
that wrote about their own personal experience
but I couldn’t find anything professional so I decided to fill in
the gap. My website is divided into a couple of sections:
the first one helps you plan the trip to Israel. The
first thing that travelers think about when traveling to Israel, or any other destination,
is of course the sights, and in Israel it includes Jerusalem,
Tel Aviv, the Judaean desert, the Galilee, this is the reason
why you come, but the logistics are also very very important. How do you get there? Should you join an
organized tour? Or rent a car? And how will you get there on Saturday when
there is no public transportation? I’ve written all about it so check out my
post about public transportation and tours and
you will get a much better sense of your options. I’ve also written about the first site you
will visit in Israel: the airport, and there is a lot to
know. Another section is dedicated to the Israeli
society. When I did my guiding course then I learned
a lot about the history, geography, religion, but
when I started guiding I noticed something interesting and that
is that most of the questions were not about the history of the sights. Hardly anybody asked: So when was
the church built, in the Byzantine era or in the Crusaders era? Most of the questions are about the Israeli
society today: the average salary, the relationship between the Orthodox Jews and the secular
Jews, like myself, I’ve written a lot
about the Israeli society, like the ten most Israeli things, and what you can learn about
the Israeli society from visiting just a normal local supermarket:
one of my favorite videos. The most common complaint here about Israel
is how expensive things are and the next section is
dedicated to what will probably be your biggest expense: accommodation. Now comparing prices and
booking a hotel is very easy to do, you don’t need me to do that, but I decided to make
videos about this topic because a couple of issues that people
usually don’t think about when they book. First of all, if
you’re on a budget, then there are great hostels that opened up in the last couple
of years, and most of them have private rooms so you basically pay
50%/70% of what you would pay in a three-star hotel. Another thing is that I talk about new hotels
that you won’t find many reviews on. And probably the most
important thing is I also write about the surrounding of the hotel and not only the
hotel itself. I’m for
example now in Eilat and there is a huge difference in the atmosphere between the hotels in the
northern part, which is more like party, and this area,
the southern part, which is more nature and diving and the
mountains all around. In Tel Aviv there is also a huge difference
between hotels on the promenade and hotels on Rothschild Boulevard. Once you go outside the cities the differences
are even bigger. You can
book a hotel in a Airuach kibbutzi or maybe you sleep at Chavat Bodedim – a lonesome farm
somewhere alone in the desert. I’ve also talked about different communities,
especially in the desert, and some of them have also like a
small hotel, so check out my videos about accommodations because at the end of the day
you spend a lot of time, almost half the hours of the day,
you will spend at your hotel and its surrounding. The last section is dedicated to my booklets,
my pride and joy. I can help you with travel tips or choosing
a hotel and hostels but at the end of the day, I’m a tour guide. My passion lies in bringing the amazing
history of the land of Israel to travelers in an interesting way. Now hiring a private guide costs around
$400 a day and in my booklets I’ve basically written down everything I say on my three
most popular tours: Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and the Judaean
desert, Masada and the Dead Sea. The booklets are very
different from other guidebooks you might know in the sense that I didn’t write a
word about itinerary or how to get there: all of this information
you can find for free on my website. I’ve only included what I say
when I guide, when I stand in the northern palace of Masada, or in front of the Wailing
Wall or inside of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre: it is the
guiding itself. The booklets are only available outside Israel,
so order them now and come prepared. They are also
available as pdf and e-book. Now if you’re looking for a private guide
to guide you tours in English or German, and a private guide is of course the
best option, then drop me a line. I get quite busy because I
also guide Israelis in Berlin. I can sum up my professional life by saying
that in summer I talk about Hitler in Berlin and in summer I talk about
Ben Gurion and Jesus here in Israel. But I know some great
guides that I can recommend, and if you’re looking for a high-end tailor-made private
tour or planning something big like a bar mitzvah or you come
with a church and want something really special, then I can
connect you with Asaf, my partner. That’s it. If you have any questions then please write
them beneath the relevant post so others can benefit
from the answer. And get my booklets – they are great. See you in Israel. Yalla bye!
