My love for New York City began when I visited first time as a child. On my travels around the world I realized that New York is my home. Over the years I had an amazing opportunity to experience ALMOST everything what New York has to offer. I shared my experience and knowledge of the City with visiting family and friends. I always have been the favorite source of advices and tips for the best places to see, eat and shop. I enjoyed this so much that I decided to make this hobby my career. Now, I would like to invite you to experience the Big Apple with me. My name is Ziv Helfman and I am your personal tour guide in New York. My tours are very personal and flexible for singles, couples and groups of any age. With me you will save money by avoiding ‘tourist traps’ and save time navigating streets and the public transportation (Subway). Let me show you the classic “Must See” in the City, the famous sites you have seen in movies and TV shows and the New York you have never seen, even though you have been here before. I will help to arrange your transportation from and to the airport and provide help with purchasing tickets for sport events, museums, concerts and shows. If you want to taste the best of the City in a easy and comfortable way contact me and I will arrange a perfect tour for you.

My tours are high-energy, personal, intense, fun, dramatic, passionate, smart, knowledgeable. My work is based on memory, reading, scholarship, other tours, documentaries, personal experience. I appreciate high culture, low-brow, and everything in between. I love history and pointing out ironies and poetry in meaning through space and time. My tours show an appreciation for the major monuments, the overlooked, the forgotten. The great figures from history and the regular guys and gals pop in and out, inspired by the streets, parks and buildings. I have a background in adult and adolescent training, so I have an appreciation for interaction and involvement with learning and memories.

Tour Guide in Hebrew in New York City
Rachel Cohen

מכיוון שאחד מהתחביבים שלי זה אומנות, העיר הזו נותנת לי סיפוק אינסופי.

בנוסף אני ממש אוהבת גם לטייל ברגל ולצלם וזה גרם לי להתחיל לחקור וללמוד את ההיסטוריה המאד מעניינת שלה ולגלות מקומות קסומים חבויים מעין התיירים ותאמינו לי,  המאגר לא נגמר.
