Your tailor made tour in Israel since 1970
My name is Yaacov Nof. I have over 50 years of experience as a guide for touring in Israel, both in Dutch (my mother tongue) and in English. My specializations are religion and nature. As for the practical side: I own a luxury minibus with air conditioning, that has space for 7 people, plus your guide and your luggage. We also have (mini) buses for larger numbers of travelers.
Due to the large demand, I cannot guide all tours myself. We are proud to have a team of good experienced guides, who we gladly introduce to you on this page. Twice a year I travel to the Netherlands and Belgium to advise people regarding their tours to Israel.
My name is Bernardine Nof. I was born in The Hague immediately after the war, and immigrated to Israel at the age of 22. I felt at home here from day one. Shortly after my aliyah (immigration to Israel) I followed the study to become a tour guide. I have led groups through Israel for a number of years, which I enjoyed a lot. I have been arranging tours to Israel for large and small groups from all over the world for over 35 years now. It is very satisfying to hear positive feedback from our guests, and that their trip to Israel was an unforgettable experience.

Shalom everyone. My name is Rivka, I was born in Groningen (North of the Netherlands) and moved to Israel from Amsterdam at the age of 24. I studied Nutrition and Dietetics in the Netherlands, but because of my passion for the nature and history of my home country Israel, I decided to look for a job in tourism. It is my pleasure to work with Bernardine in the office, to put together your trip to Israel. I'm the operations manager in our Jerusalem office, which means I'll take care of your trip from A to Z.
Please reach out to us. We would love to send you a proposal for a tour and show you what is possible for your tailor made tour to Israel.
Looking forward to welcome you in Jerusalem!
