“Perfect, info packed day tour”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Ronin, of rent-a-guide, provided us with a very personalized and knowledgeable small group tour leaving from Tel Aviv.
He was both the driver and the historian as we toured Caesarea, Haifa(Baha'i gardens overlook and drive through the German colony), Akko (a highlight being a fascinating fact filled walk through the once buried crusader city) and the grottoes at the Lebanon,Israel border. At mid day we stopped for a great middle Eastern style lunch. Ronin was very patient and made me feel as if I had gotten a private tour for a very reasonable group tour price.

“Jewish Heritage tour 14 day Israel”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We booked the 14 day Jewish Heritage tour and just came back from our Oct 9-23, 2013 tour. For the first leg in Tel Aviv, we had Ze'ev. He was dynamic, knowledgeable and we had a great 2 days touring the area. After Shabbat, we were geared to move on and we had a new guide escorting our group- Meni. We were so fortunate to have Meni as our guide for the rest of our journey. Through Caesarea, Haifa, Acre, Rosh Hanikra,Safed, Banias, Beit Shean, Jerusalem- Old city and New City, Qumran, Masada, Dead Sea, Timna, Eilat and back up through the Negev desert we were in Meni's capable hands. He kept us going with his passion and knowledge of the history of all these sites. You could feel how much he wanted to empower us with knowledge of the history of the country and the people of Israel. He did with his unique brand of humor and we felt safe and protected with Meni. Others who joined our group and had other guides would always comment on what a great guide we had with Meni. High praise for both of our guides, but we really bonded with Meni after spending many,many hours together on our journey.

“Awesome experience!”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Shalom Israel tours came through with all the accolades I had read about them, organized, accommodating and professional. But the best feature was our tour guide, Meni! He made the trip for me! Meni was so knowledgeable, patient, friendly and considerate to the needs of our group! Our days were action packed with touring, information about Israel's culture and history and Meni added his own personal flavor. I would strongly recommend booking a tour and requesting Meni for a wonderful Israeli experience!

We booked the Classical twelve day tour with Israel Tour Connection in New Jersey. For someone who has travelled extensively to all five continents in the past forty years this was the trip of a lifetime and we are certainly going back to this beautiful country with its beautiful people.
Our group consisted of a bus load of about forty people from different travel agencies staying at different hotels who joined and left the tour on different days. That made it difficult to bond with the group as a whole and complicated the logistics for the tour guide and driver. That was the only significant drawback and I suspect that was why the trip was relatively inexpensive. They kept the bus filled. Apart from that the hotels were excellent, the service outstanding and the food delicious.
I am saving the best for the last. Jacky Maayan our guide was absolutely incredible. His knowledge of Jewish, Christian and Middle Eastern history coupled with his pride in his country and sense of humor made our trip. Can I say more.

“Ask for Adi Sasson”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Here is the note we wrote to our wonderful guide for our week in Israel, Adi Sasson: "Our hearts are full - of memories, stories, sights, new understandings, celebration, hope and light - as we prepare to leave (sadly) your beautiful country.
We particularly appreciated your openess and passion in sharing and teaching all that you did.
We delight in the light, hope and love which burn so brightly within you."
This was our first time in Israel, and thanks to Adi's passion for her country, its peoples, geography, history, cultures, religions and spirituality, it won't be our last!
We participated in a 3 day tour of the Holy Land and environs, a one day walking tour of Old Jerusalem, and a day trip to Masada, the Dead Sea and Qumran.
Adi was unfailingly enthusiastic, sensitive, knowledgeable and flexible. We highly recommend her.
