About Me

Private Tour Guide

Licensed Tour Guide Heiko Sieger

Hi there. My name is Heiko Sieger. I was born and raised in Germany, in the southern province of Baden-Wurttemberg.

During a vacation in Greece I met my (future) wife. After getting married we stayed in Berlin for about a year, and then we moved to Israel.

34 years have passed. My professional career started as a waiter at the Sheraton “Grill Room” restaurant and, years later, led me to become Vice President Sales for an Israeli high-tech company. In between I’ve been a translator, copy-writer, and advertising representative for international media. I did PR and marketing consulting work for companies, public institutions, and government agencies. Through my different jobs and professions I met some of the more prominent figures in Israeli life, including politicians, novelists, industrialists, bankers, scientists, and a few Nobel prize laureates.

Whatever job I held, it was always I who volunteered to show foreign guests around, be it through the streets of Newe Tzedek in Tel Aviv, or the bazaar and the ancient sites in the old city of Jerusalem. I always found the history of this country and its people fascinating and I love to share my Israel knowledge and experience with my guests.

Having worked many years in the high-tech sector I decided to change my career and to turn my hobby into a profession. Two intensive years of studies later I became a licensed tour guide for English, Hebrew, and German language tours. But with a subject as big as Israels history, my studies will probably never end.

On my tours I want to share with you the country and its people, its history and its current challenges. However, at the heart of the tour are always your interests and your satisfaction.

In addition to private tours throughout Israel, I am also offering specially designed photography tours.

    My wife and I recently spent a full day with Heiko as a guide to photography in Jerusalem. We started before sunrise and went until a late afternoon visit to a site overlooking the western wall. We had the opportunity to capture photos from a large variety of sites with some very memorable images. We found Heiko to be knowledgeable. friendly and with access to special locations for shooting. He knew where to be for the best light at different times of the day, but always added an explanation of the history and geography of the areas in view. We had a great experience and appreciated the opportunity to meet him and two see and understand so much of Jerusalem. A very spacial day
