Haya was a Godsend! She connected with me in advance, and that was reassuring. She literally supported me as I hobbled on an injured knee. She oriented me on my first day in Israel, and tour guided me to the Jaffe Gate, through the Old City market, and to the Kotel where I had booked a Kotel Tunnel Tour. On the way, she helped me get and load a RavCav, exchange money, and requested the use of a chair so I could rest while she got me a lemonade; she translated costs and haggled prices, (something I can’t manage to do). I would recommend a Lokafy to anybody who is on their own in a foreign country—it’s well worth the $45. per hour. And she’s who I called when being swindled by a taxicab driver who wanted 1,000 shekels fora “private tour” (i.e. a circuitous route) of Jerusalem. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get a hold of Haya, so I chalked it up to experience, having enjoyed a few “must-see” sights, the full moon, and a schwerma sandwich. I hope to meet Haya again!

Mohammad, the tour guide was very prepared, he shared a lot of information about the places we visited together. Besides that, he is a very friendly, helpful and warm person. He helped me sort things out with the public transportation, he bought me a travel card and helped me buy a ticket for the bus. He was happy to go the extra mile to provide me an excellent experience. I highly recommend him to anyone. In case of a possible future trip to Israel, surely I'll ask him again to take me around the town. Thank you again!

Mohammad was a great tour guide! We learnt so much and felt like we walked around all the key areas in the city - he wasn't biased to any religion's viewpoint. It was very flexible so if we wanted to spend longer somewhere or see something particular he accommodated that. Thanks for a great tour!!
