Danny, What a wonderful two days we had with you in the Galilee!! My 13 year old grandson now thinks he wants to be an archaeologist and my son-in-law now says he’s a “raging Zionist”

My wife, Beverly, and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Would repeat it instantly if that were possible.
I remain very interested in your Nilometer theory.

Dear Anne Barasso,
Sorry to take so long to reply. Overwhelmed at the moment and I’m sure that happens sometimes at BAS. I would like to give this the time it deserves but I better get this off while I can. IT WAS GREAT! Would I take the trip again? Yes and I hope to travel with Danny Herman again.
Three things made this trip special: BAS, Danny Herman, and my fellow pilgrims. BAS opened doors at many places. The welcome we got was just remarkable. Other readers of BAR were excited to see us and show us what they were doing. Danny Herman opened doors and introduced us to folks we would not otherwise met. I also learned from my fellow travelers. I am an evangelical Christian and I am so glad that I did NOT go with just my own kind. I wanted to see from different eyes.
The trip was my 65 birthday gift to my self. I hope to take another BAS trip soon, perhaps to Turkey. For my 70th, I want to walk Joshua’s route and hope to get Danny Herman to help. Keep him. He’s great.
Thanks and as we say here, may God bless y’all real good.
You did a marvelous job as our guide and we are all very appreciative of your efforts. We truly enjoyed the tour of Israel..
“Danny is the perfect guide to visit Israel!
His huge knowledge, flexibility and talent to entertain people are the best ingredients for a remarkable trip.
He is a realy demanded guide that I was happy he could take some time for me.
Danny is the best, believe me!”
I am regional finance controller for a large multinational company and visited our affiliate in Israel in December. After a full day of meetings, our finance director organized a short sightseeing tour to Jeruzalem in the evening. Danny turned out to be our guide. He took us from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in his very comfortable SUV. During that 1 hour drive he told us all about the history of Israel. It was then that I realized that Danny was not just a guide like any other guide. His knowledge was … well… beyond my imagination. And not only his knowledge about Israel, but in general about world history and politics. It turned out that Danny studied archaeology, has worked many years in that field and is an archaeology lecturer at the University of Jerusalem. In 2 hours he showed us the most important historical sites and buildings in Jerusalem and gave us a great insight into Israels complex history. Dany did not avoid challenging questions from our side. He was also very flexible and had different options in mind depending on our time availability. My Israeli colleagues and I were so impressed that we decided to have a short sightseeing our in Tel Aviv the next day before flying back home. Again this trip was amazing. Amongst others, Danny showed me the building where Israel was declared an independant state in 1948 and showed the video of the original speech. With that he gave very detailed information about the rationale to declare the State of Israel. After that we visited the old part of town, including all important historical buildings. And all that in just 2 hours. After tis trip, he brougt me straight to the airport.
If you decide to go to Israel and get to know its history and culture, I strongly recommend to take Danny as a personal guide. You will learn 10 times more than with group tours, and all of that in a very relax atmosphere. And he is also just a fun guy to hang out with. Next time I go to Israel, I will definitively call Danny again for another one of his exciting tours!
I would like to thank you for the hospitality and friendship you showed to me and my associates during our stay in Israel.
With my wishes for continued successful operation and good mutual cooperation, please receive my warmest greetings, together with an invitation to visit our company, Vojvodina and Serbia at your convenience.
