Yaffa, who was born in Morocco to a family who longed to come to Israel, today fulfills the wishes of others to come and enjoy Israel by giving them a singular holy land experience.
In 1980 she got her "Touring Expert" diploma from the State of Israel and a few years later she received an additional "Travel Expert" diploma. In 1983 she successfully completed the Hebrew University's "High Management Course in Tourism". Throughout the years Yaffa has accumulated immense experience in this field of work.
In 1995 Yaffa decided that the time had come to establish her own company. Yaffa's professional vision is founded on seeing the person behind the travel reservation and identifying his or her unique needs and wishes. Her unwavering adherence to this principle provides her with the skill to grant each and every client his or her custom-made tour in Israel.
Menachem was born in Israel to a bona fide Zionist family – a small family that symbolizes the resurrection of the Jewish people after the Holocaust.
He grew up in Jerusalem and was educated on the love of Israel. It was only natural that a few years after he completed his service in the Israel Defense Force, he was certified as a tour guide by the Israeli Ministry of Tourism.
Menachem has years of experience as a tour guide and knows almost every hook and nook in the country. Menachem enjoys the opportunity to share his love of Israel with others.
