Because Tour Guides Tell the Best Stories ™

Dr. Eyal Dujovny
Tour Guide Confidential is my attempt to showcase the Tour Guiding profession, learn best practices from my creative colleagues, while providing a behind-the-scenes look at the tourism industry. With a lifelong interest in other cultures and a passion for travel, it is perhaps not surprising that I received a PhD in Anthropology and ended up as a licensed tour guide in Israel. Guiding is a calling, and I am constantly inspired by my vocation because it brings together all of my disparate interests, provides me with the opportunity to teach, to be a “cultural broker” and to constantly re-experience familiar sights through the eyes of my guests.
My current journey began in 2014 when I started working as a Tour Operator – designing tours, tackling logistics and learning the ins and outs of this complex field. Since 2016, I am a licensed tour guide and have primarily specialized in educational tourism, while also working with pilgrims, cruise ship passengers, business people as well as private individuals and families.
Though I was born in Israel, I grew up in the United States from a young age. I have visited some sixty countries and even lived for extended periods in six of them. These days I keep busy discovering new places in Israel and planning future tours to India and Albania while happily ensconced along the shores of the deep blue Mediterranean Sea.
