Our tour was rewarded by visits to several artists' workshops but the highlight for me were all the beautiful creative outdoor sculptures!"


Thank you for giving us a wonderful morning.  I certainly gained an  better appreciation of art, and enjoyed the great views, the history lesson and the company.  Dan was brilliant and I shall certainly recommend him to others.

5 of 5 stars

Don't miss it. while traveling in Israel one should visit the place. Not only because of the great artists or art but to see that in our country there are people who contribute our culture and balance the situation of the nation. Yes i really mean it. 
the picturesque village on the way to Haifa shows some other angles of Israel. we loved it and we definitely coming back with our children and grandchildren. there are guided tours in the village. The one I recommend is Tour Ein Hod with the artists Dan and Lea Ben-Arye.


I've gotten only great reviews from this, and arranging through Lea makes it easy and less time consuming. She also helps the group pick what's good for them and can move you along without getting stuck somewhere 'boring'. Enjoy!

Dan, Thanks so much for the wonderful tour yesterday! Had we come alone, without your expertise and guidance, we would have missed much. The rich history, the beautiful sites and fabulous artwork that makes up Ein Hod! We all had a great time with you!

Deborah Dickson Was fun! So my parents went there and told me I should check it out with the group in mind...Dan Ben-Arye greeted us in a big car park just outside this unique and amazing village - Ein Hod and my 5 children aged 7mths up to nearly 9yrs piled out the car - a challenge for anyone! Anyhow, Dan speaks English perfectly and we entered the village, with Dan pointing out and talking to us about the sculptures and art that is all over the village. It obviously went over the heads of the little ones although they enjoyed looking at and playing on the sculptures. The older children were interested in the background behind the art and Dan asked them questions and got them thinking. From what we learnt, the community there is full of artists and there are opportunities to arrange all sorts of art workshops that could be suitable for families (although better for older children). Dan took us round the gallery there which includes a room dedicated to one artist that constantly changes and another huge room where a theme is given to the village artists and they contribute their take on the theme - this was great to look at and the children found it very interesting. Then Dan took us to his and his wife's gallery and we then sat in a circle making the mandala pictures above. It was such a simple activity but it included all the children - Even my 2 year old was thrilled and totally got the hang of it. We all sat for a long time together and the results were very sweet. Depending on your time schedules you could arrange something more. Obviously opportunity to buy handmade Israeli art while you are there too. Not too far away - near Zichron Yaakov and a lovely original place to visit and tour. His website is http://ein-hod.info/tour/peilut_eng.htm

"My husband and I have been traveling around the world for the last 7 months and taken many tours throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia. This tour was definitely one of the highlights of the trip and the best tour we've taken so far. Ein-Hod is a very unique and magical artists' village, and master storyteller Dan Ben-Arye beautifully describes the area's equally fascinating history. He took us to visit a handful of artists in their studios, where we got an intimate glimpse into the process of each artist and their work. All together it was such a rich and colorful experience, full of interesting, poignant, and surprising moments...we highly recommend this tour. If you have time, the various workshops offered will not disappoint! We took ceramic and silk screen, the latter easily enjoyed by all levels and ages. Again, highly recommended!"

Young Judaea, Two Days Visit To Ein Hod

Our journey to Ein Hod began with a long and rainy bus ride, little did we know that it would lead us to a wonderful and eventful two days.  As we got off the bus we met our tour guide Dan and he led us to meet various artists in their studios. They were all very nice and full of artistic talent. We then continued on to lunch and afterwards had our first workshops. The two options for the workshops were T-shirt silk screening and pottery, both of which were successful and a lot of fun. We then met our host families and were off to get settled at there homes. Our  dinner was presented to us by the lovely Bat-el who cooked us a traditional Ethiopian dinner and then she shared her amazing story of making Aliyah from Ethiopia to Israel, and the struggles that came along with it. After dinner we were free to do as we wished and most of us went to the Art Bar. The Art Bar is owned by an extremely enthusiastic American named Danny who makes his own beer, and it sure was an experience.  The next morning we had breakfast and Dan and Leah’s house and then were off to more workshops. The workshop options were photography and painting. Then lunch followed, and afterward we went to the Music museum and saw music boxes that were created one hundred years ago. And for our last stop we went to a metal studio and watched metal creations being made, along with getting to hear the music from metal instruments. All in all I would say it was a great trip.

Our experience in Ein Hod is one that revolves around the warmth and hospitality of its artistic community. Here people are open about what they like to do, their life's work. Whether the medium is conveyed on canvas or through fermentation does little to dampen everyone's enthusiasm to share their art with anyone from a bus load of teens to shoppers from across the net and therefore the world. Even the mountain air, the view, the settlement's history, and proximity to the beach seem to be seen as worth sharing here as shown by the gracious hospitality we received. Here everyone has a story, and perhaps for the simple reason that in Ein Hod emotion and personality are so commonly expressed through mediums beyond simple speech, we feel drawn close to this place and its people.

Although the big city of Haifa is only a 15 minute drive away, the art community of Ein Hod feels worlds away in its seclusion, serenity and overall aura. When our group first arrived, we were shown around various galleries and introduced to the artists that displayed them. It was clear to us already that Ein Hod was a unique place where all kinds of art was not only welcomed, but celebrated. What appealed to me especially was the way every artist's house acts as a studio for them to work and a gallery to display it in. Upon leaving Ein Hod, I thought to myself how great it would be to stay for a long while or possibly even live in this incredible artistic oasis.

My first impression of Ein Hod was rain. To most people, this would imply dreary discomfort. It seemed, however, that the village not only was undisturbed by the rain, but in fact embraced it. The energy of Ein Hod lends itself to any sort of weather, being alternately cheerful, melancholy, intense, or any number of other emotions. The art you see everywhere you turn is inspiring, the people welcoming, and the atmosphere intoxicating. Between pottery, silk screening, sculptures, paintings and (of course) good food, I have felt Ein Hod capture my senses and my heart.
