Israel by Leiah
Leiah Jaffe – Licensed Tour Guide
Leiah Jaffe just ran a wonderful tour for our extended family to Megiddo, and the Jezriel Valley. We had a group of young and old …from ages 6 to age 69. ALL loved the guided tour. Leiah was extremely knowledgeable, patient and creative. We are truly grateful to Leiah for creating a tour that was a terrific way for our family to learn history, have fun, and get some exercise all in the Land of Israel!
Leiah is wonderful! She recently led my extended family – from young to old – and had us all engaged and excited. I’ve been on other group tours with her, and they’re always interesting. It’s clear she loves what she does. From making ancient (or more recent) history come alive through her descriptions and stories, to having us taste the small wild plants that are found along the way, Leiah is vastly knowledgeable and a terrific guide!
Leiah is a fantastic tour guide who makes visiting Israel fun and interesting. Her tours are full of interesting tidbits – she is knowledgeable and makes the tours fun. We have toured with her twice, and both times she prepared extra activities to keep the kids entertained and make the sites they were seeing relevant. She created a scavenger hunt, a debate and even a play for our group. Highly recommended!
We had the opportunity to explore and travel over 3 days during the festival of Hanukkah. Leiah has a wonderful way of explaining each of the sites of the area including the geographical, historical, and political significance of each. I had a very clear understanding as her storytelling is a technique she uses while you don’t even realize you’re learning something all the while having an enjoyable time. I totally enjoyed my time in Israel and Leiah made it even better.
When out on a tour with Leiah, you can feel her passion and love of the land of Israel and all of its nooks and crannies. She can make ancient cities ‘awaken’, the Dead Sea come ‘alive’ and add so many facts and fun tidbits of information as you ‘cruise’ along on a Leah Land Cruise adventure. I have had the opportunity to visit so many sites in Israel with Leiah that I would have just ‘driven by’. Touring with Leiah is a ‘fantasyland’ of interesting stories, history, and fun. For such a small country, going on a tour with Leiah makes you realize how much there truly is to see and learn. Leiah offers you the best tour ever. Highly recommended!
We’ve been fortunate to have just returned from yet another fantastic (I think this is number 12, but who’s counting 🙂 ) Leiah adventure. Always educational, interesting and off the beaten path, touring with Leiah always provides us with a new perspective and connection to our land. Highly recommended!!

Leiah made our tour fun for everyone, from the toddlers to the grandparents. I love how she explains things in ways that everyone can relate to. Her stories are fascinating and informative. Her obvious love for Israel and its history helps me feel more connected to the land of Israel. I always enjoy touring with her and look forward to doing it again soon.
Leiah is an amazing tour guide!! Our family had such a fantastic time!! She was somehow able to engage my inlaws, us and my kids all at the same time! She combines her vast knowledge of tanach and the country with her absolutely pleasant and fun personality to give a trip with memories to last a lifetime! We highly recommend Leiah, especially for groups with multi generational members!

My work colleagues and I were lucky to have Leiah lead us on a tour of Park Beit Shean for our company Fun Day. Leiah is professional, knowledgeable, fun and informative and not only made the antiquities site interesting but also the 2 hour drive to get there, filling us in on what we were passing on the way. Leiah obviously loves what she does because it shows! Highly recommend her as a guide!
My husband and I were recommended to partner with Leiah for our first trip and belated honeymoon to Israel. Together we identified the locations we wanted to visit and learn about and with Leiah’s expertise a three-day touring trip came to fruition. We were so blessed to have Leiah show us everything and more during our time together. I cannot imagine what the trip would have been like without her. Leiah is essentially a historian of Jewish culture and the state. We learned so much that will stick with us for our lifetimes. I recommend Leiah very highly to anyone who needs an outstanding guide and teacher. Thank you so much Leiah we love you!!
The only letters that can be used to describe our experience with Leiah is O.M.G! To be honest, I was leery of having a tour guide at first thinking ‘Is it going to be worth the price?’, ‘Is it going to be worth our time?’ I can honestly say that the knowledge that was passed along to us, whether it be Jewish Culture and religion or Christianity; Leigh was overly versed in all. Her visual add-ons as well as her written out role-plays that she had us do was without a doubt an extra help to comprehend. Leiah was patient when we wanted to stop and shop, sit for a moment or get a drink of water. She is absolutely am amazing tour guide, a complete historian and a joy to be with. We are looking forward to booking her again in 2 years.
Thank you so much Leiah for everything! We love you!
