In September 2015 we booked a 2-day Israel private tour with Touring Israel. Our experience was spectacular. When booking the tour, Jonathan determined our interests and quickly provided a sample itinerary via email with our requests and his recommendations. We spoke with Gil who provided even more information about suggested sites and recommendations. After finalizing arrangements we were next in the capable hands of Adi who assisted with finances. Her information was clear and helped us to save money with payment options! The entire process was hands-on, prompt, and focused on our wishes. No worries and we had absolute confidence in our plans. Our guide was Lior and we were treated royally. He made our 2 days unforgettable and we can still hear him – he was warm and willing to share his story. Because we had other experiences in Israel, he made recommendations and changes to our itinerary that gave us an even more up-close and personal interaction that we loved. For example, we took an unscheduled stop in a town where we talked with locals preparing an art festival for the day. We also enjoyed an unscripted stop at a winery in the Ella Valley. His knowledge and the easy way he shared it ensured a great learning experience. Best of all was our time spent at Megiddo – the ruins, the view, and the history brought our entire time in Israel together. Lior made it truly our personal experience. We also booked the VIP airport transfer and assistance. The TouringIsrael staff were prompt, courteous, friendly, and helpful – from the time we left Jaffa until we were escorted to the airport lounge was less than an hour. It was more than worth the expense. When we return to Israel we will utilize TouringIsrael again!
