First off, let us state unequivocally that for Alice and me, this was the trip of a lifetime. We’ve been talking about a trip to Israel for years and because of failing health issues we were not sure we would ever get there. Susan you were the one who assured us that we could do this Active Senior Tour! Well, we both did it and loved every moment of the trip. Besides seeing every highlight stop along the way including unannounced and very interesting side trips, we had a great group of people with us, a number of whom we will stay in touch with in the future. The tour guide, Meir More, was amazing! His love of Israel and outstanding ability to cite historical significances along the tour route were nothing less than amazing. We could never have had a better guide. We saw and learned so much from Masada to The Museum of the Jewish People to the Dead Sea to the Ayalon Institute to having an authentic & delicious lunch prepared by Bedouins to having Shabbat Dinner at a Holocaust Survivor’s home. And Susan, you were the hostess with the mostess. Your sense of humor and friendly, caring manner were terrific!
