Khen Rom grew up in Ra’anana and loves traveling around Israel and meeting people from all over the world. After serving in the IDF’s Electronic Warfare unit, he studied Egyptology and Middle East Studies at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

He loves the outdoors and getting to know people, so he decided to change direction and take the Israel Tourism Authority Tour Guide Course.
