The visit was focused on some extremely interesting historical sites and cities. Our guide was very knowledgeable and succeeded in communicating to us the extraordinary facets of Jewish history. We stayed in excellent hotels including a kibbutz where we could appreciate another type of community and their customs. I would definitely recommend this tour if you love history and art . And should I go back , I would make sure I have the same guide as I have learnt so many new things from him that I am now taking a course on Jewish history in Venice.

Great day out to visit Massada and the Dead Sea. Despite the distance from Tel Aviv and a short stop in Jerusalem for additional pickups, day was fun. I credit Norbert, our guide, for such as he was able to share his knowledge in a very fun way. Logistics, with hotel pickups and drop offs were perfect and on time

On November we booked a private tour with CTO. Our tour was with their Israel Christian Tours division. We were offered a large group tour of approximately 40 persons or a private tour. We opted for the private tour, 11 days and 10 nights. The extra cost was about $Can 1000 per person. We opted for the Class B accommodations and were very happy with the accommodations except for one Hotel in Amman Jordan. We also opted to add for $US 153 per person buffet meals served on the hotels each night. We were very happy with the overall tour and would highly recommend CTO (Israel Christian Tours). The hotels were of exceptional quality, except for the one in Amman, Jordan. The other hotel in Petra, Jordan was excellent. The food too at all the hotels was excellent (except Amman Jordan hotel). We were very happy that we had added the meal plan to our tour cost. Not only were the meals excellent, they were a good value as well. Due to the location of some of the hotels it would have been difficult to find a nearby restaurant that served meals anywhere near the quality of those served in the hotels. While in Israel our tour guide was Yossi Schuster. I can’t imagine a better guide. He was friendly, extremely knowledgeable and flexible. For example, finding out that we were amateur bird watchers, he squeezed in a 2-3 hour visit of the Hula Conservation Area where we saw a large number of birds. Yossi was very conscious of our safety and protection while with him. The van was a large, comfortable and spacious Mercedes van. It was even equipped with a front to rear speaker system that allowed the person in the back seat to hear all of the guide’s comments. CTO (Israel Christian Tours) was meticulous in the details. For instance, they provided us with excellent instructions on how to cross the border between Israel and Jordan, including information about crossing fees, the right wickets to line up at, etc. And without fail, the guide on the other side was ready and waiting for us with a sign indicating our names. They even had suggestions as to appropriate tip amounts where necessary. The tour itself included all of the sites of interest to us a group of 4 Christians. Here are just some of the sites visited: Jaffa, Caesarea, Megiddo, Tiberias, Capernaum, the Mount of Beatitudes, the Golan Heights, a kibbutz, Cana, Yardenit Baptismal Site, Nazareth, Bethlehem, Masada, the Dead Sea, the Qumran Caves, etc. In Jerusalem we visited many sites including the Via Dolorosa, Western Wall, Church of the Holy Sepulchre and more. A highlight for us all was our visit to Yad Vashem, the memorial to victims of the Holocaust. It was very powerful. Our Jordan section included Jerash, Amman, Mount Nebo, Petra, Wadi Rum, Madagascar, and more. In the end we had a great trip and would highly recommend CTO (Israel Christian Tours). One final thing, we stayed 4 nights in Tel Aviv at the front of our tour and 6 nights in Jerusalem at the end of our tour for extra sightseeing time. It was a great idea and greatly enhanced our trip experience. For instance in Tel Aviv we spent a day walking the beach promenade from Tel Aviv to Jaffa. We also visited the Eretz Israel museum and the Haganah Museum. Both were excellent. In Jerusalem we walked the ramparts around the top of the Old City Wall, spent more time at the Western Wall and the adjoining Men’s Prayer Room, walked thru the ultra orthodox community of Mea Shearim, got around on the light rail, spent time at the Mahane Yehuda market, toured the Citadel of David and much more. It was a great trip. We all came back with a much greater appreciation for and understanding of Israel and Jordan.

Our tour covered the entire Galilee area including a stop at the Jordan River baptism site - Qasr al Yahud not Yardenit. Our tour guide was very informative about Israel and its history. What we paid for the entire day (visiting 6 sites) was very reasonable. I highly recommend it!
