The trip was exactly as advertised. The accommodations were very good, the guide was excellent, the itinerary was busy. I was on a 10 day tour, but only 6 were active touring (the other two were two sabbath weekends.)
When two members of our group became a problem, Shalom pulled them out of the group and offered them a private guide at his expense to avoid ruining the trip for the rest of us. This was above and beyond the call of duty, and he deserves kudos for this. I recommend this trip without reservations.
