A Testimonial By The Beutner family From USA
Dear Tova and Shalom to you,
Our time in Israel was truly the most wonderful, transformative and memorable 10 days of learning of our lives.
Your organization and planning was absolutely excellent and flawless – from our airport landing and your kind welcome in Tel Aviv to the lovely itinerary booklet you prepared, from each and every activity, trip, meeting and restaurant - from the moment we arrived to the day we left. Most important – all of your staff was extremely thoughtful, professional, friendly, flexible, and each one made our trip truly excellent. Our Guid especially made our trip an incredible learning experience – his knowledge and professionalism, concern, attention to every detail, and positivity when faced with changes (!) was most excellent.
The children said their highlights were (in no particular order): the Masada, Yad Vashem, the Wailing Wall, and the Dead Sea, the helicopter trip/overview of Israel’s geography and politics and its borders, and Petra. Honestly, they would be hard-pressed to name anything they didn’t enjoy and their only complaint is that they wish we had had more time in each place. We hope that this trip was only our first and that we will all be able to return at a more leisurely pace! Most important, because of our guid rare ability to clearly articulate and condense and explain book-loads of information in a sensitive, personal way (he is a natural storyteller with great command of myriad facts and detail) – We all learned a tremendous amount – about history, religions, and world politics, and that was our main goal.
We appreciate the logistics coordination and on the whole, the itinerary was exceedingly well balanced to mix focused “educational” (i.e.museum) visits with fun and more open-ended outdoor time (a Dead Sea swim!). The restaurants you chose – the Bedouin tent in particular (!), lunch in the Golan Heights, the dinner in Jerusalem - were all superb.
Thank you, thank you ALL for giving us a great, inspiring trip that we will carry with us forever, we are so very grateful to you,
The Beutner family
