My daughter and I traveled to Israel in August 2015 and had a wonderful time. It was planned and executed beautifully by this travel agency on very short notice and we really appreciated that they were so responsive and able to come up with an amazing itinerary very quickly. At every step along the way they stayed in touch and provided helpful information. Our guide was wonderful and we felt like we were in very capable hands. His vast knowledge and ability to get things done with a simple phone call was impressive. More importantly, he was fun to spend time with and was flexible with the itinerary when needed which my daughter really appreciated -- I'm pretty sure he knows the location of every Gelato shop in Israel!
It's difficult to choose as we enjoyed almost everything about this trip! Well maybe not the heat wave, but ALMOST everything. For me, the archeological "Dig for a Day" at Tel Maresh was just incredible and I frankly never wanted to leave....exceeded all my expectations and I am so glad we participated. My daughter would say that the Camel Ride/Bedouin dinner were highlights for her. Declaration Hall in Tel Aviv was very moving, the old city of Jerusalem was fascinating and our trip to Bethlehem will always hold a special place in my heart. I would be remiss if I didn't mention that during our Jeep tour in the Golan Heights area, our driver stopped at one of the IDF outposts and we had coffee with several of the soldiers. We were so impressed with their maturity and even met a "lone soldier" from the US. The entire country is just fascinating, not the mention the food is delicious! What a treat it was to eat meals with our guide and expand our taste buds. He even made a special trip on his own to buy some treats from the market for us to bring back to the US - yet another example of how he (and our travel company) made us felt well cared for. I would not hesitate to book a trip with them again and hopefully will have an opportunity to do so.
I don't think I would change a thing about it, except to stay longer and have it be a little less hot. To be fair, they were having record-breaking heat which was not typical.
