About Me:


My name is Erez Berkovitz and i am an English speaking (mother-tongue) guide that lives in a small agricultural moshav (village) on the Sea of Galilee. With a BA degree in Middle Eastern Studies i am guiding the land of Israel through a historical lens but also endeavor to paint a much wider picture giving an insiders account of life in the place that i was born in and live today, amongst the different communities of Galilee. I have all the energy of a young guide just reaching my mid-30's but all the experience of a guide that has worked with a wide spectrum of groups and tours throughout this land. Ofcourse i enjoy greatly showing the natural, historical and cultural worlds of my backyard in northern Israel, but having lived in Jerusalem for some years i feel just at home in the neighborhoods and walls of the Holy City. I invite both first-time and well-versed visitors to come and join me in the footsteps of history, on a land that has seen everything and everyone from Saladin to ancient prophets!! I have excellent inter-personal skills and enjoy immensely the profession that I have chosen - receiving and hosting each group with a great deal of commitment, knowledge and pride in the Land of Israel, achievements of the Jewish State and my own humble connection.

Please see my Biography/Guestbook for further references and details of my tour guiding background.

My Group Tours


January 26, 2020 - February 05, 2020
Led by: Eitan Chamberlin
Guided by: Erez Berkovitz

It's time again for our annual Pastors Familiarization trip (our 7th to date), and we've made it especially affordable this time with 8 days /7 nights on land with one of Israel's top guides: Erez Berkovitz and great hotels.

The tour is not only at rock bottom pricing, but we reimburse you the entire cost of your trip (land + air) f you end up leading a tour of your own to Israel in the next 3 years.

Would you trust a doctor who has never been in a hospital? Then how do you expect people to learn from you if you've never been to the Holy Land? It's a birthright for every pastor to come to Israel at least one time on a familiarization tour so that at your ministry can be all the more effective. Samson Tours, Erez Berkovitz and its fabulous hotels and attractions make it happen for you with this highly subsidized rate.
