Israel Tour – Nov. 2018


It was a fabulous trip. It was great to see so much of Israel and get a sense of the differences in the only democracy in the Middle East. I particularly enjoyed traveling with a small group of seven people in a Mercedes minibus with a knowledgeable guide, who was always available throughout the tour. – Bruce, German Village, Columbus, Ohio


It was a great experience. Our tour was very well planned with visits to many of Israel’s major points of interest. I particularly enjoyed Tel Aviv, with its thriving atmosphere, and Jerusalem, with all of its history. Our guide Dany was excellent. – Art, Solon, Ohio


Aaron planned a wonderful trip, which included many of my favorites — Tel Aviv, Ein Hod Artists Village, Masada, the Dead Sea and Yad Vashem. I personally liked meeting Israelis daily. – Debby, Solon, Ohio


As a first-time visitor to Israel I felt I saw and experienced quite a bit. I appreciated traveling in a very small group, which helped move everything along smoothly. Our guide Dany made sightseeing so enjoyable. I now feel much  more curiosity about Israel and hope to return. – Suzanne, Beachwood, Ohio


A truly remarkable journey. It was a way to truly understand the culture of a fantastic country. Our guide Dany tied Israel’s history into modern times. I met wonderful people with diverse backgrounds throughout the tour. – Phil, Orange, Ohio


The tour was a unique blending of historic and modern Israel, of friendships, adventures anticipated and discovered. Our guide Dany had the ability to tune into our interests and individual “quests,” which made the experience one to enjoy, remember and treasure. I found my Jewish roots — the roots of true friendships and a vision of the adventures to come. – Donna, Orange, Ohio
