Annie Fitzsimmons,
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TRAVELER

"The best way to see a vibrant city like Tel Aviv is through the eyes of a local. Don’t know one? We didn’t either, so we met with Ross Belfer, a well-connected American living in Tel Aviv. Belfer just launched his own travel company called Eager Tourist that provides custom itineraries for visitors. Want to visit a local chef’s home kitchen? See the studios of up-and-coming artists? Go for a running tour of the city? This guy has you covered."
