“I am not sure I can pinpoint one word that could describe the trip. My first time being there, it was just so surreal, I loved everything we got to see. I loved how our Israel guide and Randall backed everything up with scripture. It was a great trip- I am still processing everything! Also met some new people who are friends for life. I look forward to returning soon!”Christina J.
“We had an amazing time on the tour! Everything was so well organized, very comfortable hotels, loved Kenny’s informative talks, Randall’s wealth of detail from the Bible and archaeological knowledge, enjoyed the “surprise” activities not shown on the tour itinerary. It was so nice to spend the night the Dead Sea Hotel and have two nights at Petra, and 7 nights in Jerusalem! We loved the numerous locations, many more than our previous tour of Israel!”Rachel K.
“Our trip was perfect !!! I am a picky traveler …. I always told my husband we were travel snobs because we liked traveling in comfort, and this trip did not disappoint! My favorite part of the trip was Randall’s scripture reading and mini sermons! I could not have gone with any other tour and had nearly the experience. The hotels were wonderful, the pace of the days was perfect, Kenny, our tour guide, was excellent, and our travel companions are my new friends.”Julaine C.
