My name is Patrick Amar and I established the Israel ETC to offer eager travelers like yourself the chance to experience Israel in a way that leaves you inspired, excited, and craving more. I personally hail from Montreal, Canada and I grew up speaking French and English. As a university student there I began travelling to Israel on group trips, first as a participant and then afterwards in leadership roles, and I couldn’t get enough. I eventually found myself in Israel so often I felt it was already like a second home – so then I made it my permanent home! Together with my wife, we immigrated to Israel in 2006 soon after getting married. We have been blessed to live in the Old City of Jerusalem since we arrived and it is here that we raised our family, we have since relocated to the Ramot B neighborhood of Jerusalem 

After working with group trips to Israel for nearly a decade, I realized that I had a lot to share and becoming an Israeli tour guide would give me the opportunity to do so. After undergoing the grueling 2-year Israel guide’s course, and turning over what felt like every stone in Israel, I became officially licensed by Israel’s Ministry of Tourism to hit the trail and teach about subjects across the spectrum: geography, politics, history, religion, people, plate tectonics, you name it! Since then, I have been privileged to guide thousands of individuals around the Holy Land and give them a taste of this incredible place I call home.

I love guiding for groups, individuals, and families, whether for those visiting Israel for the first time or those who can hardly count how many times they’ve been here! And whether my clients are young or old, I’m here to help them have the best time possible, doing my best to keeping them entertained all the while.
