Hi Susan,

We had a great time….random thoughts in no particular order…

Flights were great…the 747 experience was much better than the 777…but both were on time and service was good…
We enjoyed the three hotels…breakfasts were incredible…and dinners at Mizpe Hayamin were good…King David was an experience…although not sure that the additional cost…whatever it was…for the view was worth it…
We did vary slightly from the itinerary….skipped the detention camp and the winery….went to Rosh Hanikra and Zippori National Park…..spent two hours at Yad Vashem….definitely not enough time for us…..also visited the site where David slew Goliath…the girls enjoyed that story and experience….the kids liked the Jeep tour more than me…when we visited the Golam Heights we could see smoke and hear shelling from Syria…but we did visit with some tank crews on the way back…met a volunteer from North Jersey….

Our guide was super…both kids questioned him to death…he had a lot of patience and was extremely knowledgeable….took us for great local food lunches….

Planning the next trip…hopefully with my wife and grandchildren…..
