Richard and I wanted to let you know how amazing our recent trip to Israel was. The Jewish Heritage tour was defiantly the perfect trip for us and our friends and I truly cannot think of one thing that was amiss. Personal highlights for me included swimming in the Dead Sea (and the sulfur pool at the Dead Sea resort), visiting Masada and seeing the vast ruins on top of the mountain, as well as spending the day at the beautiful resort city of Eilat. Visiting these three places were a life long desire for me.
I also want to mention Timna Park in the Negev Desert. It was spectacular and it was strange and unusual being in a place with absolutely no sound. But it was Yehiel Lavi, the guide you hand picked for us who made the entire tour so special and meaningful. He is a fount of information and truly could speak on any topic whether it was history, culture, food, political atmosphere or religion. All of us valued his broad knowledge and the way he imparted information to us. His personal tour style allowed us to feel a special connection to Israel, it’s people, and our shared Jewish heritage.
It truly was a trip of a lifetime.
Jaci and Richard
