We are two women & three children travelling together..Alon was well aware of our situation with many emails between us prior to the trip being taken. We were transparent he & his Land of Galilee websight was not!..we tried to overlook the initial shock of 4 out of 5 of us would be sleeping on the floor in a communal area with the 5th person having to sleep in one of the children's bed(which the child had to vacate).it was ok at first we went on some tours ate nice food.We were paying $200 US dollars to experience: A Hebrew immersion homestay which was supposed to include some tours ,three meals per day ,kids activities &,tranportation.. However we were not informed of the reality that both parents would be working that 2 of their children would be left at home with us during school hours on one particular day.We were not aware that there was a bus service within a 5 minute walk until the day we left which increased our sense of isolation.we expected Hebrew lessons as advertised an got impersonal communication & arrogant indifference.we were made to feel very unwelcome. Extra money had also been given for extra tours that had not been taken the children were very distressed at how we were being spoken too. We decided to cut the trip short. Three weeks plus extra tours had been payed for.We stayed ten days and have not recieved a refund nor did we receive the return of a Hebrew pendant left behind when requested..it was a very expensive experience for us "buyer Beware"! We will definitely be reading trip adviser before making any future trips abroad..
I had the pleasure of staying with Alon and his family for 2 nights last May. His family provides deliciously cooked meals as well as the option for taking a tour of the region. Trips are customized to suit your interests and Alon is very accommodating of your traveling schedule- he will pick you up from a nearby city so there is no need to find the place yourself! He also has extensive knowledge of the area and adorable kids who sometimes will come along for the tour ride as well.
I had the opportunity to see the sea of galilee, tour the golan heights, and go to mount tabor. It was an excellent trip where I got to get off the beaten path and see things most travellers don't get to experience. Highly recommended!
