Batya Sela
Hebrew, English

My name is Batya Sela, and I have been guiding for nearly ten years. I live in Givat Arnon, one of the hills above Itamar. As a tour guide in Shomron, I see the opportunities for giving tourists an understanding of life in Yehuda and Shomron, with all its complexities. My tours are a combination of Bible stories, meetings with local heroes, samplings of the local cuisine, and much more. I do not have a fixed repertoire, and fashion each tour based on the needs and desires of the group.
