Hello and Shalom

Join me on a private tour for an unforgettable day in the quarters of the old city of Jerusalem with a professional photo artist and a licensed tour guide. my tour combines visits to historical sites and stories with a workshop in photography. Together we will walk down the memory lanes and explore hidden corners, 

If you want to learn and see Jerusalem in depth. Take an expert guide and together we will tailor your visit according to your desires. These tours are for all levels, so whether you are a pro or an amateur (an iPhone is good too) ,you will surly meet lots of interesting people and  experience Jerusalem like a local .

My name is Simon Beni.  born in 1968. Live in Tel Aviv. Studied History and Archaeology in Tel Aviv university,  I am a second generation tour guide ...... I love history.... and for the past 15 years I have been leading groups mostly to Asia, and guiding many visitors all over Israel.

I am a self taught photographer, and I have been working as a photography teacher in a high school for 5 years.   Combing the two: photography and tour guiding gives me the best opportunities to still learn and get closer....

I am excited to welcome you to Jerusalem...as a client, yes, but also as an honored guest, and most of all, as a friend.
