Hi
Looking for a tour guide private or group for touring Tzefaz, amuka, etc.
Artzeinu and Hoffman are not going that day.
I do not have my own car.

Thanks
Are you specifically looking for a tour? Or a driver who knows where the sites are ?

Dialogue in the dark. That's the blind one. The deaf one isn't that great.

Putting out info for those looking to rent a boat out to the Mediterranean or get a private water of the coastline. http://www.aya-yam.co.il/new/?page=Prices&lang=en
