Hi Susan,

Thanks for writing. I had a great trip. The guide, Amir, was terrific. He has a tremendous wealth of knowledge of the sites that we visited. He gave us a very good historical perspective of what we were seeing. He had the ability get along with everyone.

It was a jam packed trip. We started most days at 8am and kept going until 6pm. I feel that I got a good overview of the State of Israel from the past to the current. The two Saturdays that were free were also great for me as I could go exploring on my own. I am glad that was built into the trip. The list that you gave for things to do on Shabbot was very helpful.
