The tour guide that I worked with on my last trip to Israel, Baligh Jazy, did a fantastic job. Often a professor has to correct many things a tour guide says, explaining that those things are legends and may not reflect history. Baligh was very different, demonstrating that he was well read on the history and scholarship of the sacred sites around the Holy Land.
Baligh has now set up a web site for his tour company, Balforady Tours. And so I thought I should share the link and draw attention to it.
For those who find his Arabic name difficult to pronounce, he is happy to be called “Billy Rose” – using a similar-sounding English first name plus a translation of his family name.
