Out trip to Jerusalem, the Dead Sea and Jordan was from the beginning to the end perfectly well organised. All of staff were very friendly. Our tour-guides were fantastic. We learned so many things about the places we went to. It was our second tour with you and not the last. Thank you for this great experience.
