Hi there! My name is Veronika Lacktman and I can't WAIT to show you Israel through your eyes! I have been a professional tour guide and travel expert for over eight years and I love sharing my international experience in educational tourism and eco-travel with first time visitors and locals alike!
My passion for traveling began at an early age living in the north of Israel in a Kibbutz and it's what drove me to Study Geography & Environmental Studies and Asian .In the IDF I served as a medical officer and following the completion of my army service and studies I joined the Jewish Agency as a Emissary for three years operating as Israel Program Director for NYC Universities. Per return to Israel I continued my work in the field of tourism and was a MASA director and a Chief Guide for 3.5 years in one of the largest tour company in Israel.
Today, I hold a MA degree in Environmental Studies and a certification courses in Christianity and History while running my own boutique tour company Vero Trips!
After more than eight years of working in the field of educational tourism in Israel, I provide Israelis and travelers the opportunity to experience Israel with an expert tour guide, historian and eco-traveler. My formal education in the field of History, Geography, Religion and Environmental is incorporated throughout her tours as all tours follow the principles of Ecotourism and responsible traveling. The travel destinations incorporated in the tours work to give a dynamic view of Israeli culture while benefiting and promoting the local communities, preserving the beautiful nature sites and cultural treasures, and learning about and respecting the diversities of cultures through interactive activities.
I enjoy dancing, traveling, reading, history, archaeology, nature\ hiking, bird - animal watching and reading.
