If I could give 6 stars or more, I would! Ibriham made our entire trip worth the journey.
Prior to departure, Ibriham was prompt to answer questions, offer suggestions and lend a hand with any other details necessary.
On the day of our planned excursion, Ibriham arrived a few minutes early and came prepared with a FULL day agenda for us. His knowledge throughout the day was mind blowing. His historical understanding combined with his biblical expertise kept us engaged, inspired and in awe!
A few of the many reasons I would suggest hiring him...He added a couple of stops that were among our favorites of the whole trip and would not have been on a "tour". One was a stop at Magdala for a quick tour of the grounds and all it had to offer. His knowledge of the location is what gave this smaller spot a meaning that you wouldn't get through a self guided visit. The second was at a museum on the site of a kibbutz (sadly, I can't recall the name). Here was a museum which included a boat found and reconstructed and thought to be from the same time period of Jesus. We were the ONLY people in this museum and was most impactful!
At the end of the day, he gave us a book of his pictures, words and history of Israel. Holy cow! It is our favorite memento from the trip.
Take my advice...spend the money and hire him for your entire stay! We wish we would have!
