Working on an IDF Air Force base was a privilege and their hospitality was stellar.  Julia’s touring sites were as-advertised, off-the-radar and wonderful, each an exquisite learning experience.  But the high point was the excitement of extracting 6,000-year-old artifacts from the soil with my own dirty hands, while learning from professional archaeologists.  That is quality, …

The VFI Plus Archaeology trip was a new and exciting program and time.  We had excellent accommodations and facilities on base and at the dig.  We met new and exciting people on base and at the dig.  I recommend it to anyone.

VFI PLUS ADVANCED is the Israel experience that offers something for everyone.  A true sense of helping, as well as being there for Israelis was achieved along with the excitement of touring new and different areas of a country, I thought I had experienced before.  There were numerous ventures previously unknown to me.

Tours of several places instrumental in Israel’s struggle to become a nation gave me a deeper and clearer understanding of the more recent history of this ancient place.  Touring Haifa, Akko, the Herodium…I could go on and on.  But I will stop with “add VFI PLUS ADVANCED to your bucket list!”

Best experience ever.  Rewarding, nourishing, rich, vibrant and brought my heritage to life. Formed lasting friendships with Israeli’s and VFI team.
