Groundup Tours since 2014. 

My name is Ido, I was born in Israel and raised in the countryside, spending my youth along with the orchards and between the hills, spending my time outdoors and not sitting so patiently in a classroom. When I was in my early 20's I gained a priceless acquaintance with the area while serving as a captain in the military Special Forces.


I started climbing in 2012 and guiding in Israel & Alaska on 2014, ever since I've been dividing my time between guiding private groups in different parts of the world and climbing the most adventures vertical routes I'm possible,

Ido is the only guide in Israel which is both UIAA Rock climbing guide and licensed tour guide of the Tourism Ministry.
