We went on a tour of Jerusalem and Nazareth over two days. We had a guide called 'Ginger' or Amir Teynee............he's all of 71 years old, but more energetic than me, totally enthusiastic about his job and his country, and extremely knowledgeable. He drove us through the country side...almost 500 breakneck speed, and with humour and wit and knowledge, took us through the tour of the holy land.  I had a great time because of him, and I learnt a lot from him... I enjoyed his company, and he never let me have a dull moment........I would recommend him to anyone going to Israel.....tell him what you want, and he will deliver.

Hello Amir, I was a guest at the Dan Panorama hotel in Tel Aviv in March and took your bus tour to Caesarea, Haifa and Acre on 3/15. I wanted to say what a great time I had on the tour and to tell you that I did a presentation to my co-workers when I returned home including some of your audio from the bus and my photos.  It was very interesting and everyone was pleased to now know more about the history of Israel.  I was glad I could share this information with them thanks to your informative and fun tour! I hope all is well and look forward to seeing you again on another tour!

Hi Amir, just a short message to tell you I tremendously enjoyed the tour to Jerusalem on Saturday 23 February 2008. Your expert, objective, and humoristic guidance made it a wonderful experience. And the beautiful weather completed it. I would recommend you to anyone looking to learn more about your nice country. With kind regards,

We want to praise the skills of your guide Amir Teynee, who took us and two other guests to Jerusalem on Saturday, June 23 2007. Amir was full of interesting information on a wide variety of topics. He was pleasant and enthusiastic throughout the hot day. We felt that he cared about our comfort, and his skill in timing and avoiding crowds was much appreciated! It was a thoroughly enjoyable tour. Amir impressed us as a very intelligent, warmly likeable person; we feel fortunate to have had him guide us.

Our guide, Amir, was wonderful a 10+ he was knowledgeable, kind & caring with a huge heart. He taught us so much and in many ways was the highlight of the trip. He became part of our congregational family and will always remember him and this trip to Israel.

Amir is a great tour guide, his passion for Israel enhanced the trip tremendously.
From Gunther Simmermacher on The Southern Cross Pilgrimage 2001
The three pilgrimages arranged by The Southern Cross in the past couple of years were enriched by the services of tour guide Amir Teynee, a distinguished representative of his profession who palpably cares for his groups. Invariably, pilgrims love him.
Our superb tour guide, Amir Teynee, led a group of young pilgrims to the papal Mass, and spoke in the most affectionate terms of the pope and the event itself.

Iris Whitelaw from Holy Cross Anglican Church in Hythe, Kent, England writes:
In April 1992 as Tour Leader I took a party of 18 people to the Holy Land. For many this was our second Pilgrimage and for others the first 'Journey of a Lifetime'. Amir was our guide - not just a guide - a man sensitive to our quest for knowledge which he was well qualified to fulfill, and a good friend to each member of our group. We left Israel with our own impressions and would thoroughly endorse his commitment to advise and lead a tour that will remain in your memory. Stay as long as you are able to, it will be well worth it."
