Actor Tobey Maguire is in Israel on a mixed business and pleasure trip.

Maguire is in town with his wife and two children. The star of Spider-Man was even spotted by paparazzi surfing in Tel Aviv over the weekend.

Their visit is being hosted by businessman Moshe Hogeg.

According to reports, Maguire will visit holy sites in Jerusalem as well as other parts of the country and will also attend an event by startup Israeli phone app/website, Mobli.

The latest trend in travel to Israel includes a stopover at one of Israel’s leading high-tech companies. Maguire, like his colleague Leonardo DiCaprio, is an investor in Mobli (Hogeg is the CEO).

Mobli offers an exciting real-time take on mobile video and photography. It’s all about seeing the world through someone else’s phone.
