Country Roads was born from a strong connection between two loves:
The love of nature, and history of Israel, of it’s landscapes, and stories of the legacy of this country.
The love of meeting new people and sharing experiences; where every meeting creates something different, unexpected and full of interest.
Gideon Alef (1935-2012)
was one of the veteran Jeep tour guides in the Galilee. An experienced and talented guide with a great knowledge of Israel and the Jewish tradition. Gideon led thousands of tourists all around Israel for many years in total dedication and sense of mission.
Today, the manager of Country Roads is Gideon's son, Yishay Alef, a major in the reservs and a second generation of Jeep tour guides. Yishay grew up on the wonderful stories of this land, and like his father, is captivated by it’s charm. On every tour, they brought maps, a bird guide and flower guide and a set of binoculars. While they travelled, they saw how every season has its own magic.
