‘Thank you so very much, Debra, for a most enlightening and fact-packed tour last Friday morning. . . . We absolutely loved learning some surprising details for the first time (and also “refreshing” the ones we had forgotten!) about the neighborhoods we visited as part of your “19th-Century Jerusalem: The Race for the Holy Land” tour. You are a conscientious and highly professional guide who is clearly passionate about her subject matter, and your enthusiasm is mamash contagious . . . we loved every moment of your well-planned and most enjoyable tour, and we look forward to joining you on many others, אי״ה. . . .’
Shalom, my name is Debra Nussbaum Stepen and I want to welcome you to Debra Tours. I am a licensed tour guide in Israel and I would love to have the honor of guiding you around this magnificent country
I started my professional life as a psychotherapist in sunny Los Angeles, California and enjoyed working with all types of people for over 33 years. In 2007 I came on Aliyah to Israel and started a new life for myself in the holy city of Jerusalem. I fell in love with this country and embarked on a rigorous two year program to become a tour guide in 2011. I passed all the examinations for the Ministry of Tourism and have been guiding people ever since.
I can create an itinerary for you that is meaningful, fun and custom made for your needs. I work with pride to help families, couples, solo travelers, business folks and even those on a spiritual quest. Israel is very diverse and has something to offer everyone.
Take a look around my website and look at the sample itineraries that can be offered. I offer traditional trips that cover many of Israel’s highlights but I also offer some boutique tours and walking tours in Jerusalem. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love culinary and wine tourism.
Enjoy and hope to see you soon.
