Dor, a certified tour guide with a BA in the Land of Israel studies, always loved to travel in Israel on foot or on bicycle races. He was born to an American mother and an Israeli father. At the age of 14, he moved with his family to Chicago, where he graduated from high school, returned to Israel to serve in the army as a fighter, and when he finished his service, he set out to explore the world.
After two years, he decided to return to Israel to study tour guiding in order to bring the beauty of the country to the people.
Today, Dor specializes in guiding families and groups, especially English speakers. The route he plans can revolve around a particular subject or a certain area and can be challenging or leisurely, but mostly he likes to share his knowledge and his love for the country.
Dor, who lives in Mitzpe Abirim, neighboring the beautiful and quiet Christian village of Fassuta, turned this beautiful route into a journey for the general public. Tour among the greenery, the mountains and the nature of Mitzpe Abirim – included are encounters with people working in Hefer Farm, a stop and a short walk to Abirim fortress and strolling around Fassuta village, including a meeting with the ironsmith Walid Khoury, a visit to the old church, and walking the beautiful stone road up to the well.
“Since I can remember myself, my dream was to work with people … with time, I decided to learn what I love most, travel. I love to travel in Israel and I have a very strong connection with the country. I love showing it from my perspective.”
