I love to entertain my guests with stories about Jerusalem, its inhabitants, their beliefs and traditions.
Tourism can be a life changer. Exactly this happened to me in 1997, when I visited Jerusalem the first time and was guided by one of the best guides of Israel. It took me one hour to fall in love with the city and to decide that I have to move here from Budapest, Hungary and become a tour guide.
I am Gavriel. I live now in Jerusalem and guide here visitors from all over the world. Every person who visits our city is looking for something. Most people want to be strengthened in their religious beliefs. Many want to see the multitude of religious and ethnic groups who live here. Some prefer to visit museums. But all enjoy strolling around, using all their senses and enjoying life.
I am a traditional Jew who takes the religious beliefs of others as serious as my own. I am moved by tears visitors shed at religious sites; appreciate when they share their personal stories with me. I love to entertain my guests with stories about the city, its inhabitants, their customs and traditions. Jerusalem is a unique city where even dead stones tell stories: stories of wars, destruction and rebirth, exile and return, despair and hope.
Let’s discover it together!

I got a personal Tour by Booqify, my Tour guide was Gabriel. The experience was amazing. I learned a lot about the history of Jerusalem, it was an interesting sightseeing. In this Tour you can see the real life of the old city, the places to pray in different religions. My tour was very special, my Tour guide knows a lot, he gave to me a very special treatment and also we both enjoy our company.
Wir haben Gabriel zuerst für eine Halbtages Tour gebucht .
Diese hat so sehr unseren Vorstellungen entsprochen, dass wir alle anderen Touren auch mit Gabriel gemacht haben.
Gabriel spricht fließend deutsch, bietet umfassende Einblicke während der Touren, und kam allen Wünschen sofort und umfassend nach..
Wir hatten eine sehr schöne außerdem Erfahrung mit Ihm.
