Reader recommendation: Arik Private Tours in Israel

Traveling to Israel with a crowd? An @latimestravel reader with a big family recommends Arik Private Tours

My brother-in-law treated our family (12 of us) to a guided tour in Israel. Our guide, Arik, was superb. Nothing fazed him, and he was great in his dealings with us. As a tour guide, he was able to contend with our 6- and 8-year-olds, their grandma of 76 and a few midlifers. We were impressed with his knowledge of Israeli history and archaeology, and the places he took us to were fantastic.
