A certified tour guide in English and French, I am passionate about uncovering Israel from the holiness of Jerusalem to the modernity of Tel Aviv
I was born in Israel to French/Belgian mother and American father but lived most of my life abroad (Belgium, Canada, UK and France) before returning to Israel with my family several years ago. From being a banking lawyer in the City of London, I decided to change careers entirely - go back to school and become a tour guide. I can now combine my passion for this incredibly unique country with my love of teaching and entertaining (several years of drama behind me!). This small country has everything to offer - both a diverse landscape and breathtaking beauty from the deserts of the Judea and Negev to the green slopes of the Gallil and the Golan. There's something for everyone - history, archeology, religion.. but also an incredible unique story about an ancient people dispersed around the globe for 2000 years who came together to rebuild a new modern state on its ancient ancestral land.

Amazing boutique tour with quality and a personal touch
Our guide Nadia was amazing. Extremely knowledgeable, friendly and humoristic. She really wanted to give us a good day, with a lot of information in a very good atmosphere. We highly recommend this tour/organisation if you want a tour with quality, small group and a personal touch. Karin & Kees

Excellent guide brought Jerusalem to life
We picked this small group tour due to its fantastic reviews and a 0900 pick up which means you can enjoy a great Israeli breakfast before heading out. Nadia our guide did a fabulous job all day, including an overview of over 3000 years to put Jerusalem in context. Given the amount of historical sites packed into such a small place there is a lot to take in which Nadia masterfully guided us through.
