I cannot recommend
this tour operator highly enough! Just completed a 9 day classic tour with them, and a Petra add on. The group I went in was never more than 10 - 12 people, this makes a very big difference when on tour.. The guide, choice of hotels, choice of sites etc.. were all excellent! They give attention to small details. I'll definitely use their services again..

My first impression of Shalom Stark was right, he put together an amazing 10 day tour. The hotels that Shalom recommended were excellent. The tour guide Jacky Maayan was very informative and we learned a lot from him. Each day was full of touring and endless information. One day was better than the next. We saw a lot and enjoyed every minute of it. We highly recommend Shalom for his tours. Speaking to other people who are travelling with other tours companies it seems that Shalom is one step ahead of his competition.

My husband and I have just returned from a 5 day trip to Israel and we thought it would be unforgivable not to inform other travellers how great this experience was thanks to Shalom Israel Day Tours.
Firstly, we received great support from Shalom Stark right from the beginning when planning the trip. You can imagine how hard it can be to fit all the important sights into a 5 day itinerary but Shalom seemed to be prepared to all of the challenges we could think of. As a result we ended up with a wonderful, well balanced and yet not too exhausting plan that we happily realised.
Our guide Mordechai, who was with us all this time, proved to be a great companion and an endless source of knowledge about all places we visited. We had lots of fun discussing culture, politics, art and everything of greater and smaller relevance. He had an excellent ability to adjust to our individual interests and needs and not to overwhelm us with dry facts and figures. We simply cannot think of a better guide!
As to the travel arrangements, everything was spotless: pick ups, hotel and attraction reservations, restaurant recommendations, etc.
All in all, thank you - Shalom and Mordechai. You made it all really unforgetable!

This day tour was fantastic. Everything we were promised we got and then some. Shalom really cares about her clients so if you have a question or a concern, never hesitate to ask her - she will probably respond immediately. This particular tour was led by Yehuda who was incredibly knowledgeable about the region and really made this a wonderful and special day. Thank you Shalom - I cannot wait to return to Israel and take another one of your tours.

Experience with Shalom Stark and Mordechi, Our Rock Star Guide was awesome! Although our friend organized the pre-tour with Shalom, he was great to work with and organized our trip/tours in a thoughtful way based on our feedback. The special welcome guide at the airport was well received and helpful after a long and tiring flight. Each day was full with must see sights, sounds and smells along with life-long memories. (Only suggestion would be to fully understand Hotel expectations based on your own standards.) Shalom was responsive to our requests for changes. We spent a full week touring with Mordechai who made each day special and memorable. He is easy to talk with, flexible and engaging, combined with his love and passion for Israel and willingness to listen and share make him a "Rock Star"!!!! Just an example, one of our friends had mentioned that she had not been Bat Mitzvah'd. Well, within 48 hours, we stood together at a special location of the Old City as Morechai officiated her Bat Mitzvah! Need I say more... other than Mordechai (who is so genuine and humble) Brings so Much More... But I will leave that for you to find out when you tour Israel with Shalom Israel and Mordechai!!!
