I accept all forms of payment: Slaves, Camels, wheat, oil, bronze ingots, and gun powder. If however you prefer paying in small, light and transportable equivalents, you can choose one of the following options:
Biblical style payment: 2/3 (“pym”) of a shekel, in silver currency, per day of labor. The shekel in Judaea is 11.34 grams (do not use the Phoenician currency! They cheat!), and so it is about 7.5 grams.
It’s cheap! – it is the cost of sharpening your plough! See in I Samuel 13:21: “And the charge was a pim for the plowshares..”!.
* I do not accept gold currency, because of the gold tax induced by Hezekiah recently. Silver only. Thank you.
New Testament style payment: 1 dinar per day of labor.
It’s cheap – It is the daily cost of labor at the vineyard!. Even Jesus says so – Mat. 20:2!
And I will provide far more then grapes.. I can quote Cicero in Latin, Josephus in Greek, and even the book of the Hebrews (They call it “Bible”) in Hebrew!..
American style payment: Most will prefer paying in funny looking green pieces of paper. Although seems worthless to me (can’t melt it to make jewelry for my wife, or concubine..), local merchants do seem to accept them, and give me meat and flour for them..
And so I charge:
- $400 per day for guiding (min. $350 for up to 4 hours)
- $600 for a day tour using my “OFF-ROAD LIMO” up to 200 km. (check also my Other Transportation options)
- $400 for a lecture.
- Extra charge of $100 on Saturday, and holidays.
* Prices do not include VAT.
* 25% deposit is refundable (in case of cancellation) up to TWO MONTHS before the tour.
* Payment methods: bank check, travelers check, or cash. Payment via credit card is possible only through a third party, with an extra charge of 8%.
- I agree the cost is not low, but I do not make millions. far from it. The cost mostly covers the scandalous cost of living in Israel, as presented in this article.
