A traveler, tour guide and a Galilean cultural researcher. Amnon, a resident of Kfar Vradim, a graduate of the History Department at Tel Aviv University, completed 22 years of military service with the rank of lieutenant colonel and later became an emissary to South America. After returning to Israel, he managed a regional radio station and decided to take a sabbatical among the Galilee villages and its residents, during which he began to guide tours. Among his outstanding achievements – author of the best-selling travel books “Secrets of Galilee” and “Five Minutes from the Zimmer”; presenter of the radio program “Galilee Time” and radio station spots that specialized in the Galilee experience; writer of columns and articles that were published in prominent travel and culture newspapers and magazines in Israel. Curious and a constant researcher who specializes in folklore tours in the Galilee, wine tours, geopolitical tours and even experiential tours to the taverns in Greece.
Among Amnon Gofer’s flagship tours: A Ggeopolitical Tour of Tarshiha:
We will stroll along the winding alleys, between the orchards, the churches and the old neighborhood, to the old market, the flavors, the sounds and the stories. Finally, a small touch of nature – Mount Agar – a short walk to a British water basin and hear the story of the Arab Revolt in the Galilee.
“… In his unique and amusing way, Amnon Gofer combines depth of knowledge and the Galilee’s unique experience, seasoned with spicy stories mixed with tradition, legends, imagination and reality.”
