A Recent Review of this tour

I can't say enough good things about our experience with Michel. We covered so much ground in two days and never felt rushed. His passion and love for Israel were evident in his sharing of the history and the present day life there. He made sure all of our needs and desires were met including corned beef on rye which obviously is not a thing in Israel! We all 4 felt he went above and beyond to make sure we had an excellent experience.
