Testimonials from our Travelers

Kobi,

We all returned to the states safely, but we returned changed. Our time in Israel was educational, inspirational, and rewarding. I attribute most of that to you. Thank you so much for your expertise and for your approachable manner. I feel that I have made a new lifelong friend.

I have contacted Sara at Jerusalem Tours and tentatively booked a spot for late October 2013. I requested you as our guide if you are available at that time. Maybe we will see you here in the states before that trip.

Have a wonderful holiday season. I wish the best to you, your fiancee, and your family.

God Bless,
Dr. Stephen C. Rice
