Our family just returned from a private, 3 week tour of Israel and it was without a doubt the highlight of all our world travels. We travel quite a bit and usually have the same travel agents make our arrangements and itineraries. This time, since it was Israel, we decided to use a 'country specialist' and Ms. Susan Weissberg and her staff at Wyllys Travel certainly lived up to that description. From the moment we contacted her, she listened to what we wanted to do and added what turned out to be wonderful suggestions that we couldn't have found in the guide books. To us, that's a real country specialist – knowing which well-visited sites are most important to see and when, while showing the off-the-beaten-path sites as well. Ms. Weissberg took care of everything from the airline reservations, to booking the best up-scale, interesting hotels, to the VIP airport transportation, to providing the best tour guide we have ever had in 25 years of traveling. He even took the time to make sure to answer any questions our son had no matter what they were. We had such fun; we were smiling all the time while being provided with a good balance of historical site information, interesting perspectives, and shown in-depth, special intricacies of the sites by our tour guide. The night sight and sound show at the David Citadel was awesome! We have no idea how they did it, but that's an example of the special details Ms. Weissberg added to our itinerary. Not only did she develop a spectacular itinerary, but her contacts on the ground were just as helpful. We were in Jerusalem during both Israel Independence Day and Memorial Day which added an extra dimension to our understanding of many issues. Our guide made sure we were in the right place at the right time to maximize our experiences on those days and in general. Israel is a very popular destination and without all the in-country staff coordination, we would not have had as impactful a trip I'm sure. We are so happy to have worked with Susan and Wyllys Travel, we will most certainly do it again in the future. Our vacation was everything a vacation should be: easy, fun, and worry free filled with wonderful memories. I'd like to have a 30th wedding anniversary every year if we could take trips like this. Beyond fabulous! We highly recommend you use Susan to plan your next trip to Israel.
