Yana Milinevsky - Certified Jerusalem Tour Guide
Hello, my name is Yana. I grew up in Jerusalem in a Russian family and have lived here nearly all my life. From a very young age I found myself intrigued and charmed by the historic, religious, and cultural diversity that make my city so unique, influencing so many people all over the world.
After studying Middle Eastern history at the Open University, I decided to become a tour guide in order to inform and share my knowledge and realizations with others.
I also love taking photographs and try to capture some of Jerusalem magic every day.
WHAT I DO
I create original tours which go off the beaten track and expose the real face of Jerusalem while offering a unique opportunity to familiarize with Jerusalem's hidden corners. As a local Jerusalem Tour Guide I'm totally "home-grown" and mostly interested in the urban arena often far away from the touristic spotlight.
The tours I create correspond with my personal agenda of giving back and shining a light on my city and its local initiatives and communities.
I believe that anyone can make a difference and improve their reality. I am excited to be promoting solidarity and co-existence in this magical and beautiful city that has grown tired of conflict and violence.
WHY AUTHENTIC JERUSALEM TOURS
As a person that lives and breathes this city I open a hatch to a reality not many can truly see.
After leading many tours, studies, roaming the streets by myself talking to locals, collecting and reading endless amounts of texts I am happy to invite any and all English speakers interested in learning more on the subject.
