G'day! I'm Graeme
I was born and raised in Perth, Western Australia.
My first visit to Israel was in 1973, on a one year program. In that year, I lived on a kibbutz in the north, attended a learning program and witnessed the Yom Kippur War unfold. This formative year was a profound experience, and resulted in my return to live in Israel, in 1983.
Prior to returning to Israel, I completed an Honors Degree in Psychology.
My personal interests include: hiking, biking, sailing, music and family camping trips around Israel. I have a passion for Jewish History and Biblical Archaeology, Nature and Land of Israel. All of these interests inspired me 12 years ago, to become a licensed Tour Guide.
I thoroughly enjoy working with people, and am especially encouraged when they ask many questions, and demonstrate a willingness to learn and experience this wonderful country, to rediscover the exciting history and contemplate the profound messages of our existence.
In my years I've guided high profile VIP tours, Australian Parliamentarians, high-tech convention members; Jewish National Fund groups; family and bus group tours; hiking/nature tours and youth programs; Birthright and international college programs; religious orientated tours for Jewish and Christian organizations – synagogue and church groups of all denominations; guiding for the Israeli Ministry of Tourism, and promoting tours in Jordan.
I look forward to the opportunity of being your Aussie Guide and travelling all over the countryside Israel with you.
