Review 9/19/2011
Dear Maya at America Israel Travel,

I want to write to let you know how thrilled I was with the tour, Roots of Your Faith, that you and Leo helped set up for my son, David, and me. We went in August, 2011 and we are still talking about it; it was truly the trip of my life!

I would like to compliment America Israel Travel on how well organized the tour was. Once we arrived at Ben Gurion Airport and made our way to baggage claim your representative was right there to meet and greet us and get us to the shuttle which took us straight away to our hotel. All of the hotels were just as pictured and advertised. They were upscale, we were greeted with refreshments the first night at each one, the views from our rooms were magnificent and the food was delicious, plentiful and recognizable for anyone who might be concerned about "not knowing what they're eating..."

I must say that as good as the accomodations were everywhere we went, they still pale in comparison to our tour guide, Tamar and our driver, Eron. I have to say, they both made the tour as memorable as it was. Tamar was able to speak knowledgeably, from so many perspectives (religiously, politically, historically and archeologically) about each place we visited. It was amazing to learn that not only had she gone to school for two years to be a tour guide, but had been a tour guide for 26 years! She is extremely personable and it is clear that she enjoys what she is doing - it's not just a job! Eron is a superb driver, he handled our tour bus with much skill and finesse and there were a couple of places where it looked to be a tight squeeze. It was also very much appreciated that he kept water available to us daily, as it could get quite expensive purchasing it everywhere we stopped.

Now to the tour itself and the itinerary. Oh my gosh! The places we went, the things we saw... I still have a hard time trying to decide what was the best part of the trip. I have to tell you the first night in Jaffa was magical - there was a full moon that night and a wedding was being celebrated as we walked through the art colony, so music and laughter was floating toward us. If I had to judge on a scale of 1 to 10 the places we visited, every place was at least a 7 and the 10's were watching members of our tour be baptized at the Jordon River, floating in the Dead Sea, walking through the Garden at Gethsemane and praying at the Wailing Wall.

This will not be my only visit to Israel and I will definitely use your agency again,

thank you!
