I spent a memorable day in the Golan, we had an exceptional guide (Yoav) who showed us and explained the biblical places, with anecdotes and a lot of humor. With the other travelers (English and American) we took the time to taste local specialties. The landscapes and colors will remain in my memory for a long time. Despite the cold it was a trip well worth the price. Please note, you must be bilingual English to make the most of this trip.

A very nice but exhausting excursion to the Biblical highlights of the land of Israel. As a believer, it was a pleasure to experience this journey this journey. However, be sure to warn before lunch in the restaurant on the Sea of Galilee. It's a mass scavenging of all the worst kind.

It was a great tour with a small group ... we could even be baptized in the Jordan even though it wasn't included in the program ... the trip was indescribably beautiful

Ami was a great guide! He was very informative and loaded us with information. There were only 10 of us , even then I know it was like herding cats, but, he was great.
