Greece & Israel Journey
Star Rating:

My family and I had a great time, and we felt safe at all times. Israel was wonderful. The tour guide, Tamar, did a fantastic job in explaining and detailing stories that took place in ancient times in all the places we visited. We have visited once before some years ago, and this time around were able to see some new places. Our hotels were right on the water in Tel Aviv, Galilee and Dead Sea, and very centrally located in Jerusalem (I could see the walls of Jerusalem from my window!). Greece was also enjoyable as it felt that it was the "down" time we needed after Israel. The tours were half days, so we were able to hit the beautiful beaches in the afternoons! Food was so delicious and people very friendly. The tours were very informative and I was very touched in Corinth to learn about Paul's ministry there. Our hotel was just 1 1/2 blocks away from the Acropolis, and in an area that was busy with little shops and restaurants. Very nice area to walk in the evenings. Mr. Velissarios went above and beyond to accommodate us. Big thanks to you and your team!"

We're home and just wanted to THANK YOU for taking such good care of us on our trip to Greece and Israel. Everything went very smoothly and they were all so kind and gracious and welcoming! We had a fabulous time…the cruise was splendid and we loved all the islands especially Mykonos and Santorini. Our Holy Land tour guide, Israel Kantor, went above and beyond our expectations! He was a dear heart and had soooo much knowledge he graciously shared with us… We grew to love him in a weeks time and Israel as well! Bless you and your beautiful land!
