Sad to leave the Israel after an amazing tour.

This tour was such a great experience.

Everything went seamlessly and the places we’ve been and things we’ve seen have been amazing.

The itinerary is very good, but what really made the trip for me was the tour guide.

We were lucky to have the best tour group making it a completely unforgettable experience.

Our guide knows so much about the country and culture and I really felt like I got a better understanding of Israel because of it.

I would highly recommend doing this tour to get to know Israel! This trip to Israel was a trip of a lifetime.
