Guided Tours

The man in the brown shirt and ball cap is one of our staff archaeologist who guided us on all the "Tell Tours" around Israel. We were fortunate to have him as our guide because he gave us the real information. We were often close to tourist guides who put out some of the worst miss-information you could imagine.

We are viewing the palace on the second level at Massada. There was some restoration/conservation work going on at the time.


  1. This story reminds me of my aunt M in Springfield IL who had been a member for many years with the Abraham Lincolm Memorial Society or something like that. She would get so mad at the tour guides when taking us downtown to the Lincoln law office, courthouse and such. In fact, she was known to correct tour guides mid sentence.

  2. Yes that would be a great temptation.
    Our archaeologist guide would roar with laughter.
