I’m Assaf and I am an Israeli licensed tour guide and tour planner. In Hebrew, my name, Assaf, means “to gather or to bring together” and I feel that it describes my job perfectly; to bring together different groups of people and to introduce them to the wonderful and complicated land that I live in. I’m described by friends and clients as a person for whom resting is an impossible mission, someone who is always on the move, meeting new people and always thinking about the next place to explore and learn.
Growing up in a family who followed my father, a career diplomat, to different regions of the world, I had the opportunity to introduce Israel to those around me and ever since it has been one of my greatest passions. For the past four years, I’ve been providing a tour guide’s perspective of Israel to a wide range of clients including politicians, Jewish groups, Christian groups and families. Give me a chance to introduce YOU to the land I call home.
