Best Private tour while in Israel - Yaron was awesome, just the right amount of information and answering questions. He is an energetic guide who gave us a great experience and we missed the crowds at all the busy spots . We were toured around in his immaculate Mercedes van in comfort. From the Castle walls in Acre , Galilee and the Gollan heights to the gardens in Haifa. Tied in a visit to a kibbutz winery and the Gollan Heights Brewery for a refreshing lunch.
