Expert Educator

Mike Rogoff

Mike Rogoff was born, raised, and educated in Cape Town, South Africa, moved to Israel in 1970, and spent a brief period studying Hebrew and milking cows on a Kibbutz. He completed a teaching diploma at Tel Aviv University, but his joyful experience in informal education persuaded him that the entire Land of Israel was a far more fascinating classroom than any four walls could ever be.

Mike became a licensed tour guide in 1974, and after more than four decades in his calling, he has lost none of his passion for the job. In 1983, the Ministry of Tourism honored Mike with the "Guide of the Year" award. He has been sent to the USA and the UK many times by Israel's Ministry of Tourism to lecture on tourism to Israel and promote it.

When he’s not guiding, Mike enjoys writing and translating, and has been a senior writer for Fodor's Israel since 1984.

Mike is married to Jill, a professional singer, and they have two adult daughters and three young grandsons, all currently living in Jerusalem.

      comprehensive coverage when the policy is purchased in close proximity to the initial trip

      deposit payment date.

    • Choice lodging:
      • Room categories are based on standard Run of House unless otherwise noted.
      • Our standard is to provide the best available hotels while considering value. Although the level of accommodations may differ slightly from hotel to hotel, we are committed to your comfort.
      • We reserve the right to make substitutions with hotels of equal standard. No refunds will be issued for the differences between hotel prices.
      • The standard hotel room in Israel is generally smaller than in the US, comfortably accommodating two people in either one queen-size bed or two single beds. Some hotels offer triple rooms consisting of standard twin beds plus a sofa/folding bed or cot for the third person.
      • Special requests such as room selections, bed types, and smoking preferences are subject to availability and are strictly at the discretion of the hotel's management on a run-of-house basis.
      • All hotel rates are non-negotiable and are based on the agreements made between Dalat Educational Expeditions and its suppliers.
      • Hotel check-in time is generally not before 3:00 p.m. and check-out time is prior to noon.

      upon confirmation of space.
    •  Airport Taxes & Fuel Surcharges are not guaranteed unless the group air tickets have been

In this instance, we will require immediate and full payment of the airfare and airport taxes and fees as itemized on the invoice. This situation overrides invoice terms and conditions and payment due dates. If full payment is not received, seats will be canceled by
      the airline and may not be available to be rebooked on the same flights or at the same
      airfare. Any replacement air arrangements and airfare will be the sole responsibility of the
      passenger. We suggest you contact your travel agent or the carrier several weeks prior to
      departure for seat assignments. Passengers are responsible to reconfirm their flights 72
      hours prior to departure for all flights.

      About group flight
    • Seating assignments cannot be guaranteed with group flights.
    • Group flights are non-upgradable through points or a supplement payment.
    • Upgradable and guaranteed seating assignments can be secured by booking an independent
      ticket on the same flight as the group. This can be done by the individual or by calling our
      Customer Service Center at 1-888-811-2812.
