Guide Licensing Information


Ancient multinational Israel has much to offer to any kind of tourist irrespective of his/her preferences. If you are more of the “beach vacation” type you will get a chance to relax at the coasts of the Mediterranean and Red seas. In case you are interested in visiting several sanctuaries you will have various pilgrim tours at your disposal.

Besides that you can even improve your health at the famous Dead Sea. It is worth noting that Israel is equally popular in any season of the year. Some people come here to immerse into the ancient history and rich culture, others come to restore their mental and physical health by means of remedial qualities of the Dead Sea. Israel is also known for having high level doctors, so some people come here not for vacation but for operation.  Young people favour Israel because it can brag about it rich night life and incredible parties. 

The climate in Israel varies from mild to tropical, having lots of sunny days during the year. The summers are humid and the winters are mild on the coast, while in the mountain regions the situation is a bit different – dry summers and cold winters. Your vacation in Israel would be incomplete if you don’t taste anything from the local cuisine.

Private Guide in Jerusalem - Zel

(Member Since 2009) Excursions/tous in the following cities: Jerusalem Languages: English, Hebrew

Hello, my name is Zel Lederman! Born and raised in Australia, I've been living in Jerusalem for over 18 years, making it my true homeland and raising my children in this beautiful and ancient city. Being originally a professional in health sciences, I've shifted my career onto horticulture, which led me into working at the Jerusalem Botanical Garden for over a decade. And the more I was learning about the city and Israel in general, the more I wanted to show other people and visitors its beauty and lots of interesting things that it has.

Guide Licensing Information for Israel


Despite the large number of guides offering their services in Israel, not every one of them is actually licensed to render such services. The process of licensing is rather rigorous in Israel, which is aimed at eliminating low-quality service providers. First of all, the potential guide has to go through a two-year course, which includes studies in history, archeology, history of religion, geography and other subjects. After completing the course, the solicitor will have to take exams in the Ministry of Tourism, and only after completing them successfully will be able to call himself a licensed guide. But this is just the start.

The general license permits the guide to render his or her services at any historic site of Israel and in most of its museums. However, certain museums have their unique licenses, which have to be obtained by the guide to perform any tours there. The same applies for all natural parks and landmarks, which require a separate license issued by the Society of Nature Conservation. All the respective licenses can be requested by the inspectors of the Ministry of Tourists or tourists themselves at any time. However, there's still a very large number of guides in Israel, who have a vast experience in the domain but still lack all the required paperwork to perform tours and excursions legally, so stay alert.
