Bio of Leontine Cohen :
I am Leontine Cohen, Tour Guide in Israel.
I was born and raised in Holland. After high school, I studied to become a social worker and worked one year for the social services of the city of Amsterdam.
But after having visited Paris, I fell in love with the city and eventually moved there.
I enrolled in the Tour Guide school of Paris and started working in the best profession one can imagine: I became a licensed tour guide.
I have worked with great pleasure as a guide in France and have met so many people, developed so many new tours… it was an amazing period in my life.
But my Jewish roots pulled me to Israel and after having lived for nearly thirty years in France, I moved to the Holy Land.
The only job I could imagine doing in Israel was of course being a Tour Guide, so I enrolled in the Tour Guide school in Jerusalem, and…..here I am, ready to guide you with love and enthusiasm in this amazing country.
Like in France, I want to show you the beauty of this country, tell you the long history, share my passion with you.
