Like a friend with incredible historical education
Mike Ladge, LA , USA

We just got back from an incredible trip to Israel where Shai Zalait drove all of us all over the country from day to night. I couldn’t imagine going to Israel without having him as a guide. It was like a close friend with an incredible historical education to answer any question you have. Thanks for making my first trip to Israel so special!!! You are the best.

Best travel agency I have ever dealt with.
Daphne Ketter, South Africa

Mat an travels is the best travel agency I have ever dealt with. Shai, you are a super guide. We appreciate your help to make an itinerary for our mixed group of adults and children. Your simplicity and honesty. The children were not only kept captivated I felt pampered. The food, snacks, boat ride, comfortable car, your availability and ability to get the best hotel rates made it a stress free holiday. Your knowledge of history and effort to research religion, your extensive knowledge of places, psychology and negotiation skills are a great asset. We had so much fun that we forgot we were leaving you in Israel. My son cried for you on the plane. You felt like family in only one week! Our pilgrimage was a success. Thank you so much. I am recommending you to all my friends and acquaintances. Best wishes.

memorable and exciting
Rebecca Forester, NY, USA

Israel is an amazing country to explore but having the right guide to show it to you can enhance your experience tenfold. Shai Zalait is a very bright, knowledgeable professional who shares Israel with you in a unique and passionate way – from history to culture, to adventure to amazing food, Shai makes everything memorable and exciting. His down to earth nature and organizational skills, his ability to listen and understand his customers and their needs, makes working together with him a relaxed and pleasurable experience that takes the pressure off of you and allows you to just enjoy and absorb your surroundings. I highly recommend Shai and my family and I will never forget our two weeks vacation in Israel this past December.

Had the best time!
Michael Lasker

Had the best time with Shai as our guide. Fun, informative, and always a little bit of an adventure. Couldn’t recommend it more if I tried.

That was really fun!
Christian Schlesiger, Berlin, Germany

We were on a one-day-trip to Jerusalem and the Dead Sea in November 2013 together with Shai as our tour guide. We had an excellent time! Shai headed us to the Dead Sea right before the big crowded bus tours were spitting out their clientele. And in Jerusalem, Shai really amazed us with his profound knowledge about history, religions and the architecture – and his insiders’ tips for food. We can 100% recommend Shai as anybody’s next tour guide!!! He really is a funny and nice guy! Thanks, Shai!
