Shalom, Thank you for the follow up email. Overall, we thought the trip was great! We didn’t get to see Bethlehem or Masada due to the Coronavirus situation and flooding on the road to Masada but our tour guide did his best to fill in - he took us to En Geti when we couldn’t get through on the road to Masada. That’s the way it goes sometimes. Regarding the Jerusalem Gold hotel, I was a little disappointed in that accommodation but, as you said, it is a Category D hotel. No worries, it did not reflect on the overall experience - we were thrilled with what we got to see. The Dan Panorama was a much better hotel more on-par with a Marriott or Hilton......and only a 20 minute walk from the Jaffa Gate of Jerusalem. I was most impressed with our tour guide, Aharon Yavav, he was extremely knowledgeable, detailed and went out of his way to satisfy our needs. There wasn’t any question that he couldn’t answer for us. Very high marks for him. The size of our tour group was perfect, as well. We only had 15 people in our group starting out and 11 after some left midway through the tour. In the future, I would like to return to Israel with my wife. I would like to do a similar trip with her. Additionally, my son and I visited with Aharon about hiking trips where we could hike through some of the ancient trails and historic landmarks. We will be back sometime......God willing! Thank you, again, for your assistance! I hope the global situation is temporary and rectifies itself soon. Sincerely, Alan Pitcher

Shalom Journeys made our trip to Israel so easy! The communication from the beginning was top notch and responses to questions were made quickly. Transport to and from the airport was perfect and the people we encountered were very courteous and professional. We even received a call at our hotel the first night from Shalom to ensure we had arrived safely. The guide service that was provided was the BEST! Overall, this was an amazing trip and I would not take another without the assistance from Shalom Journeys. They are simply the best in the business!!

My family vacation in Israel with Shalom Journeys was beyond my expectations. The whole booking process was very smooth, with Shalom himself going above and beyond what is necessary to ensure that all of us are happy with our choices of hotels and arrival and departure airport transfers. Not only that, but the trip itself was absolutely fantastic, educational and most of all FUN with our tour guide Meni Tzabari. This tour hit all the main highlights of Israel for much less than any of the "bigger" tour names with much more flexibility and "insider Israeli knowledge" from Meni. I highly recommend Shalom Journeys to anyone considering visiting Israel!

Suffice it to say that the tour was comprehensive and extremely well planned to pack an immense amount of high quality experiences and accommodations (and food) into a very reasonable cost and time frame. The many pieces were seamless even when I mis-scheduled a personal event and Shalom got it straightened out. Our guides, Levi in Tel Aviv and Meni in Jerusalem, the North, the Negev and Eilat blended our groups of 7 and 13 into a traveling family with humor, great organization, and flexibility where needed. Their encyclopedic knowledge of Biblical, Archaeological,classical, and modern history combined with their own life experience built the 4000 year history of Israel in an always engaging and compelling way that was able to put the centuries long birth of modern Israel, the miracle of the agricultural accomplishments, and the most incredible spirit of the Israeli people in context. Shalom Journeys provided the structure to put together all the diverse pieces but their top flight driver/guides made it an experience that I will definitely do again with next generations. I could write two more pages.
