About Me

Private Tour Guide

Licensed Tour Guide Heiko Sieger

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.

30 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, copywriter, 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 (of whom Israel has quite a few).

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.
