I loved the tour. Meir was a fantastic guide. His diverse knowledge of archeology, customs, politics, history, and the Bible made for wonderful lectures. Sharon, too, was very professional, competent, and friendly. I thought the organization of the tour was excellent, too.
Our only problem was with the quality and presentation of the food. Eating food prepared for a steam table night after night was very boring and repetitive. As Terry mentioned to Sharon, we would rather have paid more and gone to restaurants. There are now so many good restaurants in Israel, and those that we went to on our own were excellent.
Not everyone may feel as we did about the food, but the rest of the tour more than compensated for that disappointment in my view. Thanks for your help.
