We have to say our guide in Israel is one of the best guides we have ever had anywhere in the world. His positive attitude is so infectious, and his professionalism--from adjusting the itinerary, to positively dealing with multiple personalities, to staying engaged with the group 100% of the time is simply amazing. And his knowledge and personal insight into virtually everything was a huge benefit in helping us understand better not just the sites, but the people and the culture. He really was a special guide and a very special person. The tour itself was very thorough and gave us an understanding for both modern day Israel as well as the wealth of history that happened there. A special thanks for Nancy's foot massage - what a treat!
Jordan was spectacular for us as well. We were surprised at how far apart everything in Jordan ended up being, but that did not take away from the beauty of the country and the people. Loai was a great guide. The best dinner we had on the trip was 'Petra Kitchen' where we cooked our own dinner. It really was a lot of fun, entertaining, and great food. The insight it gave us to the food we had been eating was fantastic, and now we can try and make some of it ourselves to help keep the memories fresh.
All the help through the airports and border crossing was very much appreciated. Although I have to say the help probably wasn't needed in Amman as you can hardly go wrong in that extremely well laid out airport.
The tour ended up being everything we wanted and more. Thank you for making it perfect for us!
