I couldn’t encourage you more to experience Israel with Tisha. She puts her whole heart into it and it clearly shows. AND, she’s amazing!
Together For Israel
Tisha has guided over 30 tours for me over the last 15 years. Actually, I refuse to lead a tour unless she is available. Not only is she an amazing and knowledgeable guide, but she is also a caring person who makes every group of mine feel that they are favorite group ever. Tisha’s historical and biblical knowledge, coupled with her sincere desire to make your trip to Israel an experience that you’ll cherish forever, is the reason she is one of the most sought after guides in Israel.

I was blessed to be able to go to Israel in October, 2018. Little did I know that God would put me under the wing of Tisha Michelle, as I went with a group from Christ Revealed documentary. Tisha has to be the most educated, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic guide of all! She knows the Bible inside and out and Israel from north to south! That’s a GREAT combination to have in someone wanting to share the history of our Christian faith! If I ever get back, I know who will be showing me around again!
Having Tisha as a tour guide will spoil you! I’ve been to Israel with family on 3 visits. After having Tisha on the first visit, we requested her on the subsequent trips, Her enthusiasm is infectious, her knowledge of the Bible and Israel is overwhelming. She passionately shares her love of Israel and God. You will be forever changed after having toured with Tisha! An experience that will change your life!
Absolutely amazing! Tisha’s historic knowledge of Israel and of the Scriptures is like taking a class in Bible history. It comes alive before your eyes!
