First of all, I wanted to thank Zel Lederman and his company for all the help they did for making my trip really amazing!!! He was very prompt in his emails and very courteous in helping with my trip. I emailed his company about a private tour of Jerusalem and even though it was the first day of Passover none of his guides were available, he still replied and got me in contact with Elias to find me a tour guide. I was really amazed by this!!! Most other guides I talked to over email were very short and curt and would not reply after many days. Zel and his company stood out just by this! Elias got me in contact with an amazing tour guide named Zafer Barakat. Zafer was amazing!!!. He was very kind, very personable, very knowledgeable, and took extra time and effort to make our trip extra special. He personalized the tour according to our interests and went with the flow of the day and how we were feeling. For example, if we wanted to stay longer to pray at a church or wanted to spend less time at a place he would work with us and let us go at our own pace. I had a list of must see places that I wanted to see. Zafer made sure I saw my must see places, but also he even took us to places which were are not on my list of places to see but which I was still interested in. He could have just ended the tour early and saved himself time, but he did not do this and I really appreciated this dedication! For example, I wanted to visit Bethlehem and many Judean wilderness monasteries the first day, but after we finished my list he took as to Jericho. And the second day he took us to Yardenit even tho we saw most of the sites in Galilee from my must see list. To me this shows a guide who is truly passionate about his job and not caring just about the money. If anybody wants Zafer’s number it is 972 (0) 505974491. I had a trip of lifetime and I want to thank Zel, Elias and Zafer Barakat! Overall, I would say you cannot go wrong working with Zel, Elias or Zafer!

Day tour of The Old City of Jerusalem

My wife and I had an amazing day with Zel. He showed us the city from the outside explaining history and how everything came about of centuries, then we went inside the old city and discovered things we didn't even know. Later we went outside to the opposite hill to view the old city and put into perspective everthing we had seen and done. Sending a day with Zel, is like spending a day with a friend, we didn't at any stage feel we were with a guide who was just doing his job.

We had an awesome day with Zel walking the Old City of Jerusalem and the City of David for close to 6 1/2 hours. We customized the tour for what we wanted to see. Zel is highly knowledgeable on all aspects of the Old City and kept us captivated the whole time. My husband whose hobby is archeology found the tour and explanations outstanding! Zel even gave some great suggestions for shopping and eating. He's a wonderful guide and I am sure would be awesome for any tour. We could only get him for one day as he was reserved for other days. Wish we could have had him for more.

Zel picked us up very early from our hotel and quickly drove us to an amazing spot to enjoy dawn breaking over Jerusalem. He was so enthusiastic and had such a depth of knowledge of the history and what remained from all the events which occurred over millennia in that area that we learned all that we could absorb and let the rest influence the way we saw the wonderful places he guided us to for the morning. He squeezed in as much as he could during the time that we had, and customized the trip to include a last minute request. Overall, a great experience.
