"What makes Joseph so extraordinary is the breadth and depth of his knowledge on nearly every facet of Israeli life. He holds an encyclopedic knowledge of Israeli and Middle Eastern politics and history, and there was no question that he couldn't answer in a clear and intelligible way. He had a Rolodex of restaurants suited for our family in each city for every meal, and while there was extensive planning beforehand, he continued to alter the itinerary based on our interests. His attention to the smallest details literally made us feel like royalty, as he has an ability to somehow make even the mundane turn magical. Joe's guidance, intelligence and nurturing made the experience unforgettable. We were free from any travel headaches and were able to focus on enjoying one another and our trip. He is in equal parts a professor, a humorist, a babysitter, an adventurer, and a local celebrity." - Jennifer F.
